Muscle Relaxer Overview

A muscle relaxant is a drug that affects skeletal muscle function and decreases the muscle tone. It may be used to alleviate symptoms such as muscle spasms, pain, and hyperreflexia. The term "muscle relaxant" is used to refer to two major therapeutic groups: neuromuscular blockers and spasmolytics. Neuromuscular blockers act by interfering with transmission at the neuromuscular end plate and have no central nervous system (CNS) activity. They are often used during surgical procedures and in i...

shelf life of orphenadrine

It was issued on June of 2011 to me for pain I don't see an expiration date. My pain is back. Is it safe to use it? ## HI, Louis! How are you? This medication isn't one of those that gets dangerous, once it's expired, but it does lose effectiveness. The expiration date would be one year from when it was dispensed to you, or when the original factory sealed container was opened. Learn more Orphenadrine details here. Thus, over 2 years later, they really aren't going to help much and you should see that they are disposed of properly. Have you contacted your doctor? It's also not good to try and self-diagnose, if something different is causing your pain this time, this may not be the appropriate medication to treat it. ## Is it ok to take an expired prescription? I have...

Cyclobenzaprine and Nabumetone

2 days ago I took Nabumetone 750mg (one capsule). If I start taking Cyclobenzaprine 5 mg, will this be safe? ## I didn't find any problems, or interactions listed, I would think the risk would be very low after taking them 2 days apart, but it is always best to double check such information to be safe. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Cyclobenzaprine as possibly including nausea, headache, drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, and sedation. Are you on any other medications?

Oblong Light Yellow Pill Wtih Apo 500 Printed On It

what is this is oblong about 1/2 inch, palw yellow color and had APO 500 stamped on it. it has a mark downe the centre crosswise ## I've been looking for this one, off an on, since I saw your post and while I have found some with a similar marking, they do not match the appearance of this tablet. Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? Does anyone else recognize this? ## It's a muscle relaxant, prescription strength. ## I sort of figured out what it is? I think it's an anti inflamatory I got for my torn tendon in my shoulder from urgent care. At the time I did'nt know it was torn! Now I'm waiting for surgery here in Ontario Canada. Probably has some pain medication in it too? Just must have put it in different container. I'm only using ice for pain now t...

Taking Baclofen and Soma together

Is it safe to take Baclofen and Soma together? I have not done it yet so I'm a little leery, but I hurt all over due to an automobile accident. ## No, these are both muscle relaxants, so you would be doubling up, which might result in overdose toxicity. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Have they both been prescribed for you? What type of injuries did you suffer? ## Was curious..i was just prescribed baclofen recently by neurologist. Been on soma for years & works great.

Abuse of zanaflex

I was just wondering if anyone out there has over-used zanaflex? I am ashamed to admit I did. I was just so desperate to sleep at night. One or two wasn't cutting it so I started going up to 6, 7, or 8 at I time. I would never ever recommend this for anyone. It was just my own desperation and stupidity. I have always had giant tolerances to everything. Anyway, this stuff would put me down hard, it was hard to get up and walk myself to the bathroom and the other thing was the vivid hallucinations, i have never experienced anything like it before. Everything I was seeing was so real it was scary and I would even see people and hold conversations with them. In the morning i would be completely fine. Thankfully i am in treatment for addiction now to various other substances. I just neve...

Ardosons - What is it for?

Hi, I was today prescribed Ardosons for acute pain and inflammatory process of the joint on my middle right finger. I made it clear to the physician that I have blood high pressure and that I was subject to a cateterism on 2006 due to ischemic peripheral vessels. He recommended 1 capsule for four days (with meals) only, however I found that this drug is not indicated for people with blood high pressure and persons with a cardiac history. Could you please advise if I should have these pills or not? I would deeply appreaciate your advice. Best regards. ## I'm not sure what the FDA or American equivalent is of Ardosons. It seems this is typically a South American prescribed medication. It's also known as Artridol. I found that it contains Methocarbamol (muscle relaxant), Betamethas...
