Ambien and flexeril together

Common Questions and Answers about Ambien and flexeril together

ambien

I'm dizzy and sleepy in the daytime, but I take other things like Vicodin 750, Klonopin, Flexeril and Ambien, and Paxil. I gained weight with the Diabetes, so I can't tell. But I loved carbs before all of this.
I relaized the muscle relaxants might help because as soon as I started ambien my pain decreased some. I know ambien and muscle relaxants are not the same but I'm assuming since ambien does relax the body that maybe the MR will too...hopping anyway. She said it will sedate me a bit and I will probably have no need for my ambien. But I hate being sedated and was hopping someone had some expereince with it and could tell me if it just makes you a little sleepy or knowcks you completely out.
I had gastric bypass surgery 17 months ago and lost 107 pounds but have regained 20 pounds. She took me off of Neurontin and Flexeril because of weight gain and I am in severe pain and cannot sleep. I now find out Depakote puts on weight. I have heard that Topmax helps with the weight. Any advice?
You want to get off the pills, right? Yet you are thinking of taking SamE, Ultram, flexiril, ativan and ambien. I have to worry that you are not going to get anywhere will thought of taking a pill to get a pill. Withdrawal is nasty, but it will not kill you. If you want to be pill free, you need to start thinking "NO PILLS".
Only meds Ive been able to try were Tramadol, Fioricet, Celebrex, Bextra, Trazadone, Topamax, Cymbalta, Flexeril, and Ambien for insomnia. None of these really work. So the Dr will say theres nothing more he can do. Ive gone to 10 drs in the last 10 yrs or less. Noone puts all my symptoms together. I have been asked "what med do you want" but Im not going there...thinking its a trap.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***mb.rxlist.com/rxboard/ultram.pl?noframes;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
your right on when you said that taking a opiate for chronic pain is not the same as addiction. Many of the symptoms can and are the same such as tolerance and dependence. Drug addicts and chronic pain patience Are as different as ketchup and mustard. Not much of a correlation but you get my drift.
We all deserve the very best medical treatment we can get. Hang in there and keep the faith! And we are all in this together - one way or another....so I will keep you in my daily prayers as well. Good luck with everything!
My doctor will be fine with it. We have been together for 15 years now. He actually listens and since I have a medical background he knows he can trust me to make these decisions. I do see an osteopath-love her. I have felt so much better since I started seeing her. I also get massage and IMS regularly. I think one of the things that helps me the most is being able to sleep in. If I could do this everyday I know I would feel much,much better. Sadly my job doesn't allow it. How are you doing?
Ambien(Zolpidem) Lunesta(Eszopiclone) Sonata(Zaleplon) Imovane(Zopiclone) Also to be avoided are muscle relaxants like Soma and flexeril. they are not only addictive, but they will make you behave like a monkey and then not remember it later. If you're actively abusing opiates AND taking Benzos/hypnotics/muscle relaxants, then you are basically getting down on your hands and knees and begging for an overdose.
You guys really stick together, and that is WONDERFUL! I am glad you have some great support there. Give one of them a call if you get weak and thinking that a pill might help!! Keep us posted please. I'm cheering for ya!!!
I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
People who live the longest sleep 7 hours per night, not eight, so don’t worry about getting 8 hours of sleep. Most people need between 6 and 8 hours of sleep to function effectively during the day. 2.Get out of bed within a half hour of the same time every day, including weekends, no matter how little or poorly you have slept. 3.Reduce your time in bed so that it more closely matches the amount of sleep you average each night. 4.Use the bedroom for sleep and sexual activity only. 5.
can i take my oxycotin 60 mg, flexeril 10mg, torodal 30mg, and my ambien 10mg at the same time?
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
I had a nasty wakeup call last week when I took 2 doses in 2 hours to try and control back pain, then took ambien (it was bedtime and I always have had insomnia since I was a young teen). Total was 4 soma, 4norco and 20-30mg of ambien plain (cant remember if it was 2 or 3..) Up til about 15min after I took the ambien I remember everything fine. Then apparently I stopped breathing and passed out according to my mother.
I have spent thousands of dollars trying to find out what has happened to me--I would wake up in the middle of the night with the grinding sound of iron rubbing together, I would get an un-nerving hissing noise after I drove my car vehicle any distance, had to drive at night and take Ambien to get to sleep. Drinking alcohol STOPPED the problem temporarily--the next day I paid a price as it came back twice as bad.
Some have subsided, and some have worsened, and some not left all together. Tell us a little more CareBayer, we're a great source of information and support. I invite you to check out our health pages (top right hand corner of the page) too. They are jam packed with information on MS. Looking forward to helping! Thanks for coming our way.
muscle relaxers also as a rule are not habit forming such as flexeril and they make u sleepy..i used ambien in small 2.5 mgs pieces but some do abuse that drug so it is really not safe for all..
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Gorgeous sunny day. And people who understand. Welcome. We're so glad you found us!
I took Ambien and I was in therapy every day for depression! At a hospital every night and no one noticed that I was strung out? I took my kids to school and volunteered as room mom, I was in and out of drs offices, etc and my family was one thousand miles away. At any rate, I decided to stop taking any oral pain meds and went into the hospital to go cold turkey off the fentanyl bc I was afraid that I was going to die.
D Love and Healing, Emily

And when I detoxed from Methadone, it was worse than opiate, Heroin and Coke WD's all mixed in together!! Sub was a lot easier for me. It didn't have the same opiate euphoric feeling like Methadone, but that's just me. It will affect people differently. Sub was pain free. I got down to 5mgs and was all good. Methadone however, again, is harder to tell if a lot is too much due to that good feeling. It creates euphoria and lasts a long time in the system.
she completely neglected the pain I came to her abt in the first place which was more back/leg ....soon as they hear pain and sleep issues together a light goes on in their heads and awwww must be FM. forgive my ranting...I get so disgusted with doctors sometimes its a raw subject with me! there are many very good ones out there with very good reps, but there are a few who were in the bottom percentile of the class too. Oh got carried away there..
I became good friends with a girl who is very addicted to it and we'd always hang out everyday and do it together. She was always amazed that somehow I didn't go through withdrawls. Well after about literally 3 months in a row of usage with maybe 2 or 3 days total not doing it I was finally ready to quit. I am lucky enough that my family goes on vacation every year to latin america so although I am slightly withdrawing I am experiencing that "vacation euphoria" that you get.
Hi Tramadol Warriors, Welcome to Part 13! We're so happy to see you! Come on in and get comfy.
