Expired Flexeril

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...

Hi regarding the pill DAN 5658 do you need to be a certain weight to take 10 miligrams ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? No, it is fine to take, if it has been prescribed for you, however, it may not be appropriate for young children and the side effects may be intensified in the elderly. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The next day after taking flexeril you will feel very groggy for at least half of the day

Accidentally took Flexeril, Zanaflex, & Tramadol

I am a 48 year old woman with fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. At bedtime I take Zanaflex 4 MG, Tramadol 50 MG and several other meds that don’t concern me as they’re not things that would affect my heart or breathing. When I took my meds tonight I noticed that I forgot to take my noon meds so I took those as well, forgetting that I had put a 10 MG Flexeril in with them because I was having bad muscle spasms this morning. I know I shouldn’t have taken all of this together. I called poison control and he didn’t seem concerned. I have a high tolerance for pain meds and muscle relaxers anyway so I think I’m fine too, it just never hurts to ask. ## How are you doing? Did you experience any adverse effects? The FDA warns that combining these medications cou...

Flexim

Just wanted to know what this is used for ## I'm sorry, but I can't find anything listed under this name. Did you mean Flexeril, which is a muscle relaxant? ## I find my hubby using them and I am curious ## I have found that Flexim also goes by the names Methocarbamol and Robaxin. Methocarbamol is a central muscle relaxant used to treat skeletal muscle spasms. Under the trade name Robaxin, it is marketed by Actient Pharmaceuticals in the United States and Pfizer in Canada.

Flexeril 10mg Or Soma 350mg Stronger

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!! ## I take soma daily and it has never effected me as bad as a flexeril . It knocked me on my butt ## Does one need a prescription if ordered from Canada? ## Soma is a drug that gives relief from muscle pain and spasms. Don't know any one in Tn. That will write prescription. If anyone knows of such any help will be appreciated.

Is Flexeril more effective than Parafon Forte?

I had been taking Soma 350 for years because I have six crushed vertebra and recently my doctor changed to Parafon Forte 500. So far it's not as effective as the Soma was so I'm asking anyone if Flexeril would be better choice than the Parafon Forte. Thanks. ## It's my experience that Flexeril is better than PF (that's such an old drug, didn't know they still made that?) but nothing beats Soma. I've heard that docs are trying to get patients off Soma's because - besides being such a great street drug - IT FREAKING WORKS! Nah, that last bit was my rant. The Big Evil Three are (or used to be) Xanax, Soma, and hydrocodone. I was on those for years because they effing worked. My doc had no problems with me on those drugs but apparently the DEA did. And they broug...
