I have taken this pill cyclobenzaprine for back muscle spasams. it says I pill by mouth three times daily as needed. The first pill helped for about 4 hrs and I took a second pill and that lasted about 3 hrs. can I take another pill now to help me sleep ## Hello, Elaine! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. No, that would be too close together and could create the risk of an overdose. According to the FDA, a 3 times a day dosing should be approximately 8 hours apart, unless your doctor has instructed otherwise. Sometimes, your doctor might designate breakfast, lunch and dinner, or morning, noon and dinner time. Have you asked your doctor for more clarification? Typical side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Cyclo/GABA/lido/capsa 10:5:5:0.025% gel. My second gel/ cream is Fl/lid/men/cam 25/5/5/1% PLO. This is a new medication for my neck. How does this medication work and what are possible side affects? ## @machilinda, I've attempted to decipher the abbreviations you mentioned for each individual cream/ointment, but am only finding details on the first one "Cyclo/GABA/lido/capsa" (which I believe translates to cyclobenzaprine + gabapentin + lidocaine + capsaicin). Is there anyway you can confirm if this is true as well as verifying the full spelled out name of the other ointment? Information I gathered on this first cream indicates that it's used topically for pain management. However, concerning possible side effects, there are honestly too many to list outside of the typic...

I am tapering off of suboxone, can cyclobenzaprine hc tab help me with the withdrawls. ## Hello, Lucky360! How are you? Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant, so it may help with some rebound issues that could occur, such as muscle cramping, but it's not likely to do much else.

I have old pills Exp date 2013 are they still good can't afford to go back to te doc ## Hello, BB! How are you? These tablets contain 10mgs of Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant that's used to alleviate the pain associated with strains, sprains and spasms. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. They don't get dangerous, when expired, but they do begin to lose effectiveness with time, so they will no longer work as well as they did, when they were new. It would be best to just dispose of these and see your doctor for a new prescription. Is there anything else I can help with?

round white tablet ends with 8
1 Reply RSS
I found half of a white round tablet it ends with N on one side and looks like it ends with 5 (possibly) and 8 definitely on the other. Found on the floor in my home just trying to id if possible thanks! ## The closest match to that (but could be something else) is a pill that says DAN on one side and 5658 on the other side, if that sounds like it might be right? That's Cyclobenzaprine HCL 10mg. It's a non narcotic muscle relaxer typically prescribed for muscle spasms, migraines, sciatica etc. the other closest match is OTC Claritin.
