pill m/283 what is it used for
1 Reply RSS
Hi, can you verify that this is a flexeril? I have a pill that has an m imprint on one side and 283 on the other side. ## Hello, Alex! How are you? The only Flexeril tablet I can find with 283 on it is round, a yellowish/peachish color and also has the letters IG. I haven't found any with an M and 283, in any NIH identification listing. Can you please double check the imprint? What color is the pill in question? The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth.

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.

How Many Flexeril are equivalent to Soma
3 Replies RSS
I have run out of my soma prescription. I usually take 2-3 at a time. How many 10mg flexeril would be an equivalent dosage? ## From what I could gather, Soma is definitely considered to be the stronger of the two. However, since both medications can effect each person differently and I don't know your pain tolerance, medical history, etc, it would be unethical for anyone other than your doctor to try and tell you how much you should be taking to ease your pain. Your heart is a muscle too. I personally wouldn't feel comfortable taking so much of a powerful muscle relaxer before resorting to other pain management options. They say "Soma Coma" has become a new term due to its potency. Have you asked your doctor about setting up a dosing schedule for Flexeril? They usually d...

Taking flexeril 10/ 10 hrs after didrex 50
1 Reply RSS
Is it safe to take a flexeril 10 mg 10 hours after taking didrex 50 I took a didrex 50 mg st 9 am is it safe to take a flexeril 10 at 7 pm for back spasms ## The main issue is that one is a stimulant and the other causes sedation, since it's a muscle relaxant. They can be taken together, but you do need to be cautious and should only do so, if your doctor has prescribed them both for you. The FDA lists the side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Expired Flexeril
28 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...
