Amrix and Severe Stomach pain?

My doc prescribed 15mg Amrix for a "severely herniated disc. This is the only new thing I'm taking. Today was 3rd day & my stomach hurts extremely badly. I took a Prilosec, Zantac 150mg & TUMS, to no avail. Stomach pain is listed in the Package Insert. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks! ## Sorry to hear about your situation. I also looked up the side effects of Amrix (Cyclobenzaprine) and found the following symptoms listed on NIH.gov, categorized as rare side effects: Bloated feeling or gas Indigestion / constipation Nausea or vomiting Stomach cramps or pain I would encourage you to contact your doctor if the symptoms become too bothersome or severe. He/she may be able to recommend some other alternative to this medication. I hope you get around to feeling better...

Can I break up amrix capsule?

I took my first and only capsule of amrix 3 days ago and I still feel drowsy. I would like to continue with a smaller dose, like 5 mg. My Amrix is time released and a capsule contains many white beads. Can I simply divide the capsule and take a portion at a time? ## No, it is not safe to try and do that with any time released medication. What dosage are you taking? You doctor should be able to prescribe a lower one for you. The U.S. FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache. ## I don't think there is a lower dosage amrix than 15 mg.

will taking amrix help with withdrawels from methadone

will taking 15 mg of amrix daily help with the withdrawels from methadone. ## IDK,but I know for a FACT that suboxenes WILL!!!I'm 110%POSITIVE of this!!(cause I DID it)lol ## Well I can tell you one thing suboxone is a wonder drug. Why I say that is because I was taking anything I could get my hands on. Then I met opanas, oh my god that is the closest thing to methadone that there is. My opinion I think opana 40 two or three times a day is harder to detox than methadone. I've done both anyway. suboxone made me feel normal. I didn't want to take any opiates and I was around it every day and offered it and didn't do it so yeah if you can afford it go with suboxone, good luck, you're going to need it ...

Would this cause withdrawal symptoms when stopped?

I started taking in oct 2014 30 pills but very other day or when needed 15 mg then when finished started getting pain again waited a month. Jan 2015 got 30 day refill took for 2 weeks stopped last wed. Didn't take the last 15 pills. For the last week especially at night sweats, chills, shaking, feel like I am going through drug withdrawal, dizzy, pacing?? Any feedback? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? It is always possible to experience some mild withdrawal symptoms like that, if you've taken something for a long period of time, or in a high dose, even if you only took it as prescribed. As listed by the FDA, you may also experience rebound pain, insomnia and diarrhea. It should improve soon, as your body adjusts to being without the Cyclobenzaprine.

how much amrix is too for a small framed female

I was prescribed 30 mg of Amrix for an undiagnosed problem. My chiropractor reminded me that my heart is also muscle,and could relax my heart TOO much!!!! I'm afraid to take it. I'm 5'4 115 lbs ## Hi kat, I find it odd that your Dr. prescribed a medication like Amrix for an undiagnosed problem, because if something's left undiagnosed, how can he/she be sure that Amrix is the appropriate course of action? At any rate, to answer your question about dosing, the recommended adult dose is listed by the manufacturer as follows: 1 - 2 Amrix (15mg) capsules taken once daily OR 1 Amrix (30mg) capsule taken once daily NOTE: the manufacturer also advises against using Amrix for any longer than up to 2 - 3 weeks My opinion based on the information above is that you may want to talk ...

Amrix (Cyclobenzaprine Hydrochloride) Extended-Release Capsules

Does this medication have the potential for addiction and abuse? ## Amrix (cyclobenzaprine) is a potent pain killer which works by supressing the central nervous system. It has an additive effect with alcohol, and long half life which means high risk for overdose. This drug is very dangerous and should not be used other than how prescribed. ## I'm sorry, but that is not correct. Amrix does contain the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, but it is just a muscle relaxant, it is used to help treat the muscle pain that's associated with sprains, strains and spasms. Thus, it is not a potent pain killer and it isn't known to be addictive or have a high risk of overdose. Learn more Cyclobenzaprine details here. The abuse of any medication can be dangerous, but this is not a narcotic...
