Flexeril 10mg Or Soma 350mg Stronger
2 Replies RSS
which is a more potent drug, soma 350 or flexeril ## The Soma is much more potent and effective as a muscle relaxant. The Flexeril tends to be very mild and only helps with slight muscle spasms. Learn more Soma details here. Learn more Flexeril details here. Which one has been prescribed for you? ## Soma is more potent, but I'm on Balcofen 20mg And it's working better and it's safer in the way of balking out!!

Flexeril Debate w/ My Sister
1 Reply RSS
Okay. My sister suffers from GREAT muscle pain due to an injury she sustained in her leg years ago. Our grandmother recently died, and my sister inherited the house. She has found many different forms of pills, but the one that she's curious about is the bottle of Flexeril, seeing as how she's used it before in the past for her muscle spasms and such, but can't get any medication right now as she doesn't currently have insurance of any kind. Here's the catch: I told her that from my understanding, you can generally take Flexeril anywhere from 5-15 years after its listed expiration date. HOWEVER...... These pills were prescribed in 198-freaking-2. She thinks they're totally safe to take, just probably less potent. I'm not so sure. Does anyone have ANY advice o...

carvedelol flexeril
1 Reply RSS
Can i take both of these together ## Hello, Charlotte! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA classifies Flexeril as a muscle relaxant and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Carvedilol is a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

The FDA classifies this medication as a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure.

Expired Flexeril
14 Replies RSS
i have chronic back pain however try not to take medication unless i have to. i have left over flexeril 5mg from a prescription written in dec. 2009 and expires 2010. is it safe to take for muscles spasms or should i toss it. i like to keep some in my cabinet because the few times my back gets really bad i am unable to get out of bed. ## Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant and you should contact your doctor for a new prescription, because it does lose efficacy past the expiration date, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. This creates the danger of overdose, by taking more, to get the relief you need. Almost all medications have a limited shelf life and will start to lose efficacy past that date. Are there any other quest...

Is Flexeril similar to Roxcets? ## NO! Not the same type of drug at all. Flexeril is a muscle relaxant containing Cyclobenzaprine. Roxicet is a narcotic pain reliever containing Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. ## No Flexeril is a strong and good muscle reaxant, also causes sleepiness, Roxicet is a STRONG!!! Narcotic. ## I have flexeril that expired in 2007... can I still take it if the bottle says it should be yellow and its more of a peachish color....? No odor.

I am taking flexeril for miscle tightness in gace, just noticed warning about heat stroke, does that mean I can not use heating pad for pain issues? ## Hello, Debbie! How are you? No, that means that you shouldn't be out using a sauna, or a tanning booth, or spending a lot of time in the hot sun. This medication may make you more susceptible to such extreme temperatures. The FDA classifies this medication as being a muscle relaxant and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. When using a heating pad, just be careful that you don't start to feel overheated and try not to leave it on too long. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been taking advil once or twice a day for TMJ for 3 1/2 to 4 weeks. I heard taking advil or...

Is Flexeril more effective than Parafon Forte?
2 Replies RSS
I had been taking Soma 350 for years because I have six crushed vertebra and recently my doctor changed to Parafon Forte 500. So far it's not as effective as the Soma was so I'm asking anyone if Flexeril would be better choice than the Parafon Forte. Thanks. ## It's my experience that Flexeril is better than PF (that's such an old drug, didn't know they still made that?) but nothing beats Soma. I've heard that docs are trying to get patients off Soma's because - besides being such a great street drug - IT FREAKING WORKS! Nah, that last bit was my rant. The Big Evil Three are (or used to be) Xanax, Soma, and hydrocodone. I was on those for years because they effing worked. My doc had no problems with me on those drugs but apparently the DEA did. And they broug...
