Common Questions and Answers about Can you take flexeril with ibuprofen


The headaches you're experiencing when you don't take the medication are also common. Many people find it difficult to stop flexeril. If you wish to discontinue your medication, you must wean yourself slowly, most likely by half-steps over time. Talk this over with your doctor if this is where you want to go with this. There is one muscle relaxant that does not effect the central nervous system -- Dantrium (dantrolene).
When I had the Rx filled my Pharmacist said I could not take the Flexeril and Lexapro with the Cymbalta as it can cause some kind of syndrome that can be fatal. So I stopped both. A week later I saw my Pain Management/Orthopedic Surgeon and they said they were taking me off Percocet. I thought ok I don't want to be on all these drugs anymore so ok. BAD BAD BAD decision.
Baclofen and Zanaflex are the drugs more often used to help decrease muscle spasticity. They don't always act quickly unless you take enough to drop you on your keister. I have some baclofen and have used it here and there but have been able to resist adding it to my routine lineup to date. I just hate to add even one more thing, especially one that can increase the wipe out factor. Your gabapentin helps relieve nerve pain.
When I had insurance, I took prescription meds, now that I don't have insurance, I have to rely upon OTC pain meds, like acetaminophen and ibuprofen. However, neither of these OTC's can even touch my pain. Does this sound familiar to any of you?
If you had a positive MRI what turned out to be wrong with you? My Xrays and Cat scan were all completely normal. my next step is an MRI.
toradol is a good one doctors will only let you take it for short periods at a time because it can do a number on your stomach .I have used it a few times a week here a week there it has helped every time.
The only medication that seems to help is Norco (which I got from an unrelated ER visit a month ago). I've tried Flexeril, Ibuprofen, Baclofen with no relief. My doctor states that I don't have RLS because pain is not a part of RLS, however my research suggests otherwise. I'm so tired of being tired and being in pain. I'm at my wits end. Any suggestions?
It's impossible to predict the future path pain levels will take. You can only deal with today while keeping in mind the potential needs of the future. I hope you find that the increased activity helps more than hurts in the near future. You may have to scale back on the speed with which you progress your levels of intensity and/or endurance. May even have to back off a little at times or slit into two half session a day. Small goals are great. Only no goals lead to no improvement.
I use Zanaflex instead of Flexeril. It seems to not make me as groggy. Just a thought. Advil or Ibuprofen, along with the muscle relaxer, works as well as opiates for me. I don't have any knowledge on Lyrica.
this may not be my case BUT its possible it just could be and like I said earlier I want to be armed with all the knowledge I can b4 seeing this pain specialist again, so thank you also, I will do alot of reading on the website you have mentioned.
I've been on heat straight for a couple of years. It seems hit or miss with me and the Ibuprofen goes as far as relief. I take the same amount you do. I'm feeling again too, some not so good, but I do have a renewed energy and zest for life again that I didn't even know was gone!
You can use epsom salt baths and take melatonin for sleep.Some people take valerian.If you can get through the first week or so you are well on your way.The hard part is after the withdrawals to stay away from these drugs altogether.If you want the clean life for yourself and your family more than you want the drug,you will win the battle and stay a winner.Just decide that this stuff has no place in your new life and keep posting for we will help you along.
I cleaned, cooked, baked, and other than a little back pain, I did great. Again, Tylenol and Ibuprofen took care of that along with 1/2 of a Flexeril. Anyway, I thought it was a good idea to start this journal, so I did!
So you get relief for your sciatica with it? How long does it last? You have helped a lot.
My back injuries are not as severe as yours but they are not mild either. Do you take a muscle relaxer such as Flexeril as these may also help? Your numbness and tinglnig in the limbs is almost certainly nerve related. Have you seen a Neurologist for an opinion? They are best suited for the spine and nerve issues you are experiencing. I wish you luck.
And most importantly, that plan needs to include a non-narcotic way to treat your pain (and there are dozens of ways to do that). Can you connect with a Dr. (current or whomever) who can help you with this? You don't have to do this alone, nor do you have to do this with any "grace"... f that. It's hard, and the withdrawal isn't easy, but it's doable. You just have to want to be free more than you want to be high (or medicated, or pain-free. whatever you choose to call it).
Day 22 Cold Turkey Tramadol ... I woke up HAPPY. I used to wake up happy all the time, before the Tramadol. Waking up happy is good. Then I tried to move. I had to use my hands and arms to get up out of bed. My body has been pushed as far as it will go. So after trying all my best tricks (aminos, coffee, food, vitamins, water) I finally stopped the struggle and called in sick for work. Tomorrow will be a busier day anyhow.
Stopping methadone at 60mg is dangerous and very hard on your body. If you don't have anything you can take today, get some aleve, it's naproxen just not in the amount that a perscription would be, so take however many aleve add up to anywhere from 250mg to 500 mg depending on how your body responds to naproxen. ( if each aleve is 100 mg taking 5 is the same exact thing as taking a 500mg naproxen.
I currently only take Ibuprofen 400mg three times a day. I also take a muscle relaxer at night for help with my sleep. I average about 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night. I have taken Gaba, had to come off of it because of the side effects. It would make me real sleepy. Then I took Lyrica, for the first week had the feeling of being drunk all the time, after I went up in dose the side effects quit. Then the Lyrica quit working.
I still take a minumal of the Valium and .5mg at night on the Klonopin for those stupid panic attacks..which whe talked much about already - lol Okay so where do I get the Clonodine?
I have a husband and two children to take care of and I can't tell you guys what a relief it's been to have some meds to take for now. I can play with the kids, grocery shop, cook dinner...all kinds of things that would "cost me with pain" before! I am excited to see what the PM doc says and see if he can help diagnose this pain once and for all! Sorry so long. I look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your community!
had another bowel movement today, with the same headache but not as intense and didnt last but 1 hour. can you help me??? why? how? what can I do? im afraid to got to bathroom now!!!
Motrin 800mg gives it a boost when the pain breaks through. I hope you can get relief soon. It kind of wears on you after a while, right?
Keep staying strong hun!!!! You know, Ibuprofen or naproxin works great too and you can get them over the counter. Good luck!!!
Hi, It is not advisable to take Cortizone (Cortisone) without doctor's advice. Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) along with anti-inflammatory analgesic (Ibuprofen) will help in releaving your symptoms. I would suggest that you should go ahead with your appointment with the doctor.
Hello Tramadol Warriors! Top 'o the evening to you and welcome. We're glad you found us! You can do this.
I see a chiropractor regularly and in May of 08 was put on Ibuprofen 800 and flexeril 10mg (I believe). I was still working and the pain was stable but still tight. On June 12th I was carrying a tray that was pretty sizable and I had ahold of it for a long time. My left arm started to smasm hard and my arm gave out. I lost the entire tray right in front of the table so that was fun.
THe affliction of severe pain is such a problem since I usually need 1000mg of ibuprofen to calm it so I can function and that disappoints me. Believe me, the alcoholic/addict in me wants to seek out my favorite drugs of vicodin, demerol even flexeril but its not an option. I must make arrangements for a massage and take 2 tylenol. Supplementing the hot and cold compresses to alleviate the knotted muscles.
It takes constant attention (especially once it does start working, and you have less pain to remind you), but the longer you keep at it, the longer you can sustain the relief. Here's the link: Good luck!
If you feel that you can take it responsiby, I'd go for it. I had the assistance of several different pills to relieve symptoms. It wasn't my first detox, so I knew how bad it would get. But I didn't allow myself to take a lot, and I alternated what I took.
