Expired Flexeril
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...

flexeril 10mg
I just took 15 pills of Cyclobenzaprine of 10mg for pain it's a yellow with the letter V on one side and 2632 on the other side. And imalsi taking bupropion 2x a day is this dangerous cause I'm getting scared now. ## Hello, Rose! How are you? Did you suffer any adverse effects? Why did you take so many? This is a muscle relaxant, not an actual analgesic, but taking that many could still be dangerous, because it can cause depression of the central nervous system. And I'd like to add a note for anyone else that reads this in the future, if you have reason to suspect that your life or the life of someone else may be in danger, please call poison control or be send at your nearest emergency treatment facility. While there are those of us online that are always happy to help, we ...

What Is The Fatal Dose Of Flexeril
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

Only one of the medications you listed is a muscle relaxant and that's the Flexeril, so why did you think you took an overdose? Have they all been prescribed by the same doctor?
