Expired Flexeril
26 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...

what does flexeril pill look like

round yellow tablet with TL 177 ## I was given Topamax 100 m.g. to add to my PTSD cocktail of meds--I was still having terror nightmares and anxiety. It seemed to help as I recall 8 yrs later. After about 2-3 weeks, one day I started seeing silvery flashes at my eye perimeters when I blinked. The next day, every time I blinked, and sometimes when I didn't, I saw huge silvery flashes and was really worried..brain tumor??? Anyway, because the symptom was in the eyes, I got an emergency appointment with an opthalmologist (MD). He said my eyes were fine and asked about what medications I had recently added to the ones I used for depression and anxiety. Bingo! When I said Topamax, he jumped immediately and said, Oh, that's it! I've found about 20% using Topamax have acute symptom...

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 ...

Flexeril Debate w/ My Sister
2 Replies 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...

Pain in the Neck
1 Reply RSS
I am a 36 yr old woman that has suspected that I have RA for over 15 yrs. I finally went to see a rheumatologist last year in November. She ordered x rays for my hands, feet, and jaw/upper spine. Found out that the top 4-5 vertebrae in my neck are fused together, which now explains the severe lack of mobility and severe pain I've had in my neck for 15+ yrs. I am in recovery (clean and sober for 3 yrs last september) so opioid/narcotic pain management is not an option for me. I've taken Flexeril in the past and found it very helpful at the end of a long, hard day. So I brought this up with my Rheumatologist and she wrote a prescription for 45/10mg flexeril with one refill. I recently ran out of refills so I had my pharmacy contact my Rheumatologists office. After 2 days with no r...

Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache. Was this prescribed for you? ## Can Dan 5658 be taken with m724?

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!!

carvedelol flexeril

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?
