Medication name needed

I had taken a muscle relaxer many years ago for my back. I remember the pill was either pink or red and oblong. I dont remember the name of it. I am currently suffering from sciatica and my doctor doesnt want to prescribe me a muscle relaxer because they make you drowsy. I remember this muscle relaxer did not make me drowsy so I want to tell him about it and maybe have him perscribe it for me. Only problem is I need to know what its called. If anyone can help please. ## I took one similar to what you've described, it was Skelaxin, which is used as a muscle relaxant, it contains the active ingredient Metaxalone. NDC code: 10544-524-20 Does that look familiar? It is now available as a generic, so they don't all look the same. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly incl...

How many hours inbetween pills is 3 times a day as needed

I am taking Skelaxin. The bottle says take one pill 3 times a day as needed. Is that 6 hours or 8 hours in between each dose?

If they are 800mg tablets, but I have been cutting them in half and taking only 400mg at a time, approved by nurse, would I still only take them every 8 hours? ## hi i am on cleocin every 8 hrs 3 x a day can i take it after 6 hrs ?

Skelaxin or other muscle relaxers

My doctor has prescribed skelaxin for muscle spasms in my hands and feet due to osteoarthritis, it doesn't seem to help very much but I cannot take tizanidine because of serious side effects.

Will Skelaxin Help With Degenerative Disc Disease And 2 Bulging

I have been taking hydrocodone for ddd and bulging disc.went to a new dr who prescribed skelaxin instead of hydrcodone. will this help? ## It may help some, but it is not a narcotic, so I am doubtful you will get the same pain relief you did from the Hydrocodone.

Common side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and headache.

Can Skelaxin be diuted

I cannot swallow large pills. Can Skelaxin be deluted in a juice oe soda, and if so, in what. ## Skelaxin isn't time released, so you could just cut or break the pill and swallow the separate pieces, there's no need to dilute or dissolve it in anything. Learn more Skelaxin details here. This is safe to do with any tablet that isn't time released, unless the labeling, your doctor, or pharmacist have specifically instructed you not do so.

Oval Pink Pill Score One Side

Large, sort of oval-shaped pink pill, split in half. Only number (probably the first number) on one side is 8. On the other side of the half-pill is a 6, probably the last number. ## I can't be completely certain, since the complete imprint isn't posted, but your description reminds of the 800mg Skelaxin tablets that I took for years. It's a muscle relaxant. Learn more Skelaxin details here. Like I said, I can't be sure, but those numbers are part of the imprint on it. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## Thank you! ## The pill is very light pink oval. Half has a 1 and the other half has an eight. The other side has one letter in the middle which appears to be an A

how fare can i go

well i got like 30 of them from a friend of mine and like 20 xanax and like 15 vikdin but br side the point HOW MANY CAN YOU SNORT OR CAN THEY BE SNORTED plz try reply be for i get eger and snort them all... hhee hhee ## Are you trying to kill yourself? ## First of all snorting any pill like loratab, vicodin, xanax and skelaxin is a waste of your time because you can only snort so much powder before you become too congested to snort any more, and that would probably be on the 3rd pill. My point is that is a stupid idea to snort anything that is not pure because you are snorting mostly binders and not the actual ingredients your looking for. Ingesting the pills will work far better than snorting them and if you haven't read the paper or watched the news latley the pills you are talki...
