Is Flexeril more effective than Parafon Forte?
3 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...

What Is The Fatal Dose Of Flexeril
4 Replies RSS
i was wondering what the fatal dose of flexeril was.... ## Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine and the maximum daily dosage is 60mgs, split into 3 equal doses. However, what is fatal and causes an overdosage can vary from person to person, depending on their overall health and tolerance to the medication. But, if you stay at the prescribed dosage, you should be fine. Are there any questions or comments? ## be careful. i took 130mg of flexeril and blacked out for 12 hours. during this time i apparently drove to meet a friend for lunch - luckily my friend, initially thinking i was drunk, drove me home and stayed overnight with me. ## My friend took 4 flexaral will she be ok 10mg ## Hi Daisy, I was reading Your post was 1- 30mg tablet of flexeril and and was out for 12 ...

Expired Flexeril
29 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...

Has anyone else had a slightly tingling tongue from taking Fexeril? I just cut my 10mg in half for my first dose. ## Can you be more specific as to what you mean by tingling? The FDA lists the typical side effects for this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications?

is flexeril ok to take with a low heart rate
1 Reply RSS
my heart rate runs in the 40's, however it has been recorded as low as 38....and i'm not an athlete, just a regular 21 year old guy, decent shape(physically). My doc just prescribed Flexeril for some muscle spasms I recently had in my lower back. Being a muscle relaxer im afraid to take them, I don't want to fall asleep and not wake up! ## Yeah, that's hard to say, since it can cause depression of the central nervous system, so there is a chance that it could cause it to drop even lower, according to the FDA. Have they done any tests to see why your heart rate is so low? Is your blood pressure usually normal? Are you on any other medications? Do you exercise regularly? Do you take any supplements?
