Norflex with Xarelto

I take Xarelto. Can I use Norflex too? Can I take it at the same time? I took Xarelto first, then the doctor prescribed me the Norflex because of a muscular pain. ## Hi Liz, According to umm.edu's drug interaction tool, there are no interactions found between Norflex (Orphenadrine) and Xarelto. However this is not to say that no interactions exist... I would still encourage you to double check with your prescribing doctor just to be on the safe side. Although I don't foresee a doctor prescribing their patient two medications that interfered with one another, they can and do make mistakes. I hope this helps!
