flexeril pill question
1 Reply RSS
Found a very small, peach-colored pill. Has the number 282 on one side, and "IG" on the other. I think it's a 5mg flexeril, but would like confirmation please. ? ## Hi Kathleen, From what I could gather, a round peach pill marked with IG on one side and 282 on the other, is reportedly identified as a 5mg Cyclobenzaprine tablet - the generic for Flexeril. Apparently it's a muscle relaxer but has an off-label use for fibromyalgia as well. And for added verification, this pill is listed as being manufactured by a company called InvaGen Pharma. It also carries a National Drug Code of 68462-0552. I hope this info helps!

wisted my knee and I'm having severe pain and swelling. Will flexeril help ease this pain so I can sleep? ## Hello, Shoshimom! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. According to the FDA, Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine and is classified as a muscle relaxant, so it likely won't help much. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Some cold compresses and Ibuprofen, may help, if your doctor approves. Have you contacted your doctor, yet? Any time you have swelling like that, you should have it checked out.

Flexeril & klonopin taken together ## Hello, Ckw! How are you? Yes, you an take them both, if your doctor has prescribed them for you. However, they can both increase sedation, so you may experience drowsiness, dizziness and fatigue. You should also know to watch for any danger signs, such as shallow breathing, extreme dizziness and somnolence. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...
