Cyclobenzaprine and tylenol

Common Questions and Answers about Cyclobenzaprine and tylenol


My right shoulder has been killing me the last 2-3 weeks, and this weekend, seems to have gotten worse; Doc said on Fri, most likely muscular...went through the weekend with Tylenol and today, pain is even worse. I asked him for something "non-narcotic" (he knows about my addiction) and he suggested Cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer). I've taken this in the past and i remember no "high" feeling, just put me to sleep... Is it ok to take this?
Have taken 800 mg Ibuprofen for the pain, try not to take it often as I know it elevates BP and harmful to body. I also take aspirin, tylenol, and wear a Flector pain patch when it gets unbearable. I alternate with the pain meds dont take them the same days. The doctor put me on Tramadol for pain and made an appt. with my regular MD April 5th. I am scared because heart disease runs in my family, hypertension and stroke, some diabetes.
He also suggested taking cyclobenzaprine for the cramps and xanax for the anxiety. No artificial opiates, though, they only delay the inevitable. It took willpower, prayer, my therapist, and having my wife hide the pills to get clean. I got morphine because Vicodin and other synthetic opiates did not work for me and had bad side effects like nausea due to inner-ear effect (I used dramamine for that successfully). Doctors are divided on treatment of opiate addiction.
So I don't really have enough anyways. I hope that by then I can just take tylenol and advil for the pain. I'm sorry the surgery is july 21st not june. I made it through the night. Woke up every couple hours but at least I slept. I have a couple soma that I have been using and I think that helped me sleep. I'm trying to make the couple that I have last through day 4. Day 2 begins!
or if your plan was to taper than sub?? just wondering, i am just not sure what i am going to do, and i am not sure i will have enough for a long taper so i may have no choice...not good , because kids start school the end of this week..We start earier than anyone, right around the time i will run out!!
usually half a tramadol with a 500mg. tylenol will control the pain, and relax my neck muscles enough that I can get comfortable. In sum, like they say: too much of a good thing is almost always a problem. If you just ease up with it, and use tramadol sensibly, it's a great medication because you can think and maintain normal function under its influence.
I am not having chest pains, dizziness, numbness, or blurred vision. I've been taking 500mg of Naproxin twice a day and 100mg. of Cyclobenzaprine (a muscle relaxant) once a day. Neither have brought much relief. Tylenol and aspirin have no effect either. I've also put ice on the area with no change. I can't get in to see my doctor for at least a week because of his schedule. The only neck pain references I've found on the internet are those related to neck strain and whiplash.
However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
The tylenol 3 is 30mg codeine/ 300mg. tylenol. And vicodin should either be 5mg hydroodone/ 500mg tylenol or 7.5mg hydrocodone/ 750mg tylenol. May I ask why you switched doctors? Have you tried any other medications besides opiates and how effective were they? Is the tylenol 3 most effective for you? More and more doctors are beginning to prescribe opiates without tylenol like oxycodone or oxtcontin, codeine, and morphine, and I do the same.
My neck is stiff and the range of motion is limited. Turning my head side to side, or up and down causes pain and is limited, especially when the arm aches. Raising my hand above my head is also painful and problematic.
I've had MRI's run (everything was normal), there is no history of migraines in my family, my diet is actually VERY consistent and has not changed, and i don't typically get headaches or migraines. i am not particularly stressed right now (i have a history of ulcers too, and i do not have an ulcer now), i am not depressed, am eating normally, etc.... i am a big gym-rat, so not being able to work out has really added stress because of the headache. i have no sleeping problems.
5 alone, and decreased the Tylenol (or acetaminophen) from 750 to 325. The cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant. Essentially he has done nothing really for your pain. I had epidural injections in my back for a herniated disk years ago and don't remember them being painful. Maybe you should get a second opinion.
However, I have only been on Lyrica for 1 day so far. APO – Ibuprofen 600MG APO – Cyclobenzaprine 10MG Ratio-Lenoltec #3 Tylenol 3 Antrotec Flexeril *Lyrica (New prescription, on them for only 1 day so far.) My physios have observed that my T7 tends to twist and get stuck, it does release quickly with their help. Also, I have major knots in my muscles around T7 and T8. My skin is very reactive (easily turns red) around the T7 and T8 area.
I am on Enbrel, sulfasalazine, protonix, tylenol(can't do NSAIDs anymore), cyclobenzaprine, tramadol, iron, folic acid, baby aspirin, fish oil and vitamins. Last winter I started getting sores on 2 fingers of my right hand. Then some bluenish and cold to the touch. Symptoms went away with warmer weather. In October the sores started to return with my hand being cold and stronger blue color. In November I experienced an episode where I lost the use of my right side temporarily.
Once the stones pass through, the pain will resolve and there are usually no permanent damages. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) are used to relieve mild to moderate pain. However, due to your liver condition secondary to hepatitis C infection, it is challenging to find the appropriate medication to relieve your pain without further compromising your kidneys and liver.
I stopped fighting it and take my pills and sleep. I can take 2 Advil PM and they work better than the perscription sleep med. Tylenol PM makes me sick at my tummy so I stay away from them. Goos luck.
By day 3 (Wednesday) at home I was fighting everything, sleep, headaches, constipation and my meds weren't working. They sent me home with Hyrdocondone for pain and Cyclobenzaprine for a muscle relaxer. By Friday I had a call into my Dr. for a medication change. I went on to Oxycodone which seem to help for pain and Methocarbamol for muscle relaxer. I was actually able to sleep last night in a elevated position. Sleeping seems to be very uncomfortable.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
This forum is great also when I was so fed up and hurting I'd just lay in bed and read old posts and other peoples struggles and it gave me hope. Good luck and congrats on saving yourself. Now that I am clean for the first time 5 years I realize that those pills are the worst kind of poison...
You have the right idea about not killing your liver and kidneys. Like I said opiates are not really an option and anything with tylenol is definately out. I beat Hepatitis C with little liver damage and I am not going to kill it now. I need / want the impossible, pain killer that will let me function with no tylenol. My Doc isn't too concerned about the Soma affecting my liver so that is good.
If I situp for 3 or 4 hours, the pain eventually goes away but returns a couple of hours after I lay down. Tylenol#3 has no effect and it only makes me nauseous. I have also tried GEN-CYCLOBENZAPRINE 10MGGPM and a heating pad. I still wake up with the muscle spasm. During the day I'm OK once the pain goes away. I am 52 years old; I have been going steadly to the gym 3 times a week all of my life and I play badminton and tennis a couple of times a week. I've never had a back spasm in my life.
now i have crazy headaches to the point my nose bleeds and fuzzy/black spots in my vision. plus im on tylenol 3's, elevil 150mg relpax 10mg, phenagrin 25mg and it hardly takes the edge off. and i take 2 somas x3 per day and one at bed. 1-2 tylenol 3's x3 per day, 1relpax 2 at max per week and idk what else they can do for me. i have a wife and 2 kids im 27 yrs old and i hardly know my kids and wife's name. i have shot term memory loss. any ideas???????
1)Analgesics. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) may ease the pain and stiffness caused by fibromyalgia. However, its effectiveness varies. Tramadol (Ultram) is a prescription pain reliever that may be taken with or without acetaminophen. Your doctor may recommend nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) — such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or naproxen sodium (Anaprox, Aleve) — in conjunction with other medications.
When I get these pains its painful to take deep breaths Its my last year in graduate school and i haven't been able to go to classes or work this past week and its very hard to concentrate on anything because of the pain. I've been on percocet, naproxen, tylenol-codeine, and cyclobenzaprine. THere are days when nothing seems to work. All my bloodwork has come back normal and I am currently waiting to try and get an MRI done.
xray of sinuses showed nothing abnormal- Er Dr. put me on amox-clav and cyclobenzaprine. Saw my regular Dr. 2 days later-he told me to stop the muscle relaxer and said that I probably did not need to be taking the antibiotic and ordered and mri of my head-also gave me a scrip for tylenol/cod-which is not helping. Had my mri yesterday-still waiting on the results.
I do not like the muscle relaxers I have. They are too strong and knock me right out. They are cyclobenzaprine. So I would take one of those or the extra clonaz. to sleep. Not both. I was safe to take the muscle relaxers as I said I do not like them at all so I know I would not trade one habit for another. So if any of this is an option for you, keep in mind please that you do not want to trade one habit for another. Make sure it is something you can take safely as to not add another addiction.
Drink fluids ( I drink 16 oz a hour) and crane berry juice at meals. Alternate Tylenol and Ibuprofen ever 4-6 hours. Exercise as much as you can even a walk around the block. I flushed my remaining scripts. Told pain management I refused opiate treatment. I will not go back on the evil drug. If you need a support person I'm here and will listen and help in any way.
cyclobenzaprine (usually I only need 1/2 or 1/4 a 10mg pill and it knocks me out, so I very rarely take it), benzonatate (a scrip cough med that makes me drowsy), 5+ mg of Lorazepam (by the end of the night), last night I tried Diphenhydramine ( Simply Sleep), 1st normal dose at bed time 10, did nothing but I went to bed thinking it would kick in, then another dose around 1:30 when i got out bed, another round @3.
