Unmarked Round Yellow Pill
I found a vial full of unmarked yellow pills, but they're more of a pale yellow color. They're shaped like mini skittles. Upon looking online for a bit, my first impression is that they are cyclobenzaprine. However, the insides are brown. Granted I've never really cut into a lot of pills, but the brown interior is throwing me. Any ideas? ## i found a bag full a small round yellow pills.... they arent brown on the inside... i seem to have the same problem identifying them. ## Same problem wtf is this ? old s*** i think

DIC/CYC/BAC/LID/BUP (DCB+ D5)
My Doctor gave this to me. Its a free sample of a pain cream for the tendons in my wrists (I think she said I could also use it on my back for my scoliosis). I always look up side effects of any medication I use, but when I went to look it up I noticed it didn't have a name. It says "this medicine was specially compounded per your prescriber" on the side. I just want to know what this is so I can know the side effects before using it. Dose anyone know what this is? ## Hello, Anna! How are you? I know what some of these ingredients are, CYC is Cyclobenzaprine a muscle relaxant, LID is Lidocaine a topical anesthetic and BAC is Baclofen another muscle relaxant, but I'm not sure on the DIC and BUP. However, what I can tell you is that side effects are minimal for these topic...

is it okay to take expired cyclobenzaprine 10mg dated 12 2012
Is it okay to take expired cyclobenzaprine 10mg dated 12/2012? ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? This is a muscle relaxant and it doesn't get dangerous, once expired, but it does begin to lose effectiveness, so it's most likely that it just isn't going to do anything to help. It would be best to get a new prescription. Is there anything else I can help with?

what is ciclobenzaprina
when I stop taking the med I get weak, anxious,shaky ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and if you've been taking large amounts of it for a long time, then it would be normal to experience some minor withdrawal symptoms if you suddenly stop taking it. That can happen with any medication you take regularly for a long period of time. You may also experience the normal side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

What Drugs Can Be Cut In Half
Can a 10mg Cyclobenzaprine be cut in half? ## Yes, it can be cut in half, since it isn't a time released tablet. This is true of most medications, unless your doctor or pharmacist specifically instructs you otherwise. There are some, such as potent potassium supplements, that can cause damage to the stomach and esophagus, if they are cut in half. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Can 10 mg flexeril be broken in half if it does not have a score line ## Hi Dana, yes , u can cut them in half. I use 2 take 10 mg of Flexeril and I cut them in half. I take medication now that's not scored and I cut it in half. I use a pill cutter, it's much easier.
