Muscle Relaxer Overview

A muscle relaxant is a drug that affects skeletal muscle function and decreases the muscle tone. It may be used to alleviate symptoms such as muscle spasms, pain, and hyperreflexia. The term "muscle relaxant" is used to refer to two major therapeutic groups: neuromuscular blockers and spasmolytics. Neuromuscular blockers act by interfering with transmission at the neuromuscular end plate and have no central nervous system (CNS) activity. They are often used during surgical procedures and in i...

10mg cyclobenzaprine vs 500mg methocarbamol
1 Reply RSS
I recently had cervical spine surgery (fusion of 3 levels). Before the surgery I was prescribed 500mg methocarbamol three times daily. After the surgery I am now prescribed 10mg cyclobenzaprine. Can you tell me the difference between these two medications? ## They are both muscle relaxants, but the base chemicals are different, so one, or the other may work for each different person that tries it, since we are all different. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. How is the new one working for you?

Taking Baclofen and Soma together

Is it safe to take Baclofen and Soma together? I have not done it yet so I'm a little leery, but I hurt all over due to an automobile accident. ## No, these are both muscle relaxants, so you would be doubling up, which might result in overdose toxicity. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Have they both been prescribed for you? What type of injuries did you suffer?

I recently started a baclofen, amtripyline & gabapentin cream for vuladynia. I have just discovered redness, almost burn like on the edge of the vulva and on my leg. I can not find any information as far as side effects and the doctor's office did not know. I don't know what to do. ## I have been diagnosed with vulvadynia and been working with my gyn/uro doctor for over a year. I have used nustatin, clobetasol, & topicort with no success. I also use Premarin vaginal cream twice weekly. Last week her prescribed a special compound of amitriptyline, baclofen & gabapentin. Has anyone tried this combination.

Is a prescription required to use this tablet? I have lower back pain and was taking this tablet for the last 3 consecutive days. My level of pain has been reduced a lot. Are there any side effects associated with consuming this medication daily (without being under a doctor's supervision)?

methocarbamol 500mg + hydrocodone/apap 7.5-325 + gabapentin 300mg

It's hard to swallow liquids as it seems my esophagus is swollen. What could be causing it? Any of my medications? ## Does it just seem like it's swollen, or has it been confirmed by a medical professional? Many medications can cause it, according to FDA reports, but it is hard to say just from this vague post. Have you ever been diagnosed with acid reflux? That is also a possible cause. If it comes down to a medication, I think Methocarbamol would be the primary suspect, since it is a muscle relaxant and muscles help us swallow... however, there is also the possibility of an allergy.

Methocarbamol and percocet - possible accidental overdose
Post a Reply
I had neck surgery two weeks ago and I may have accidentally doubled up on my medication. It is oxycodone/apap (percocet) 5-325 rx'd 1 to 2 every 4 to 6 hours, plus methocarbamol (robaxin) 750 rx'd 1 every eight hours. I may have taken 2 percocets and 1 robaxin at 7:30; then took the same dosage again accidentally at 7:45. For the life of me I can't remember if I had just thought about taking them at 7:30 when I went to take a shower and changed or if I actually did.. and then redosed myself after my shower.. I have not had any all day as I am trying to only take them when absolutely needed. But I had a pretty active day and was hurting so I was taking them to help me sleep.. Just a wee bit concerned here. I am 5'7 and about 215lbs. Thank you for any advice whether it is...
