Cyclobenzaprine and xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Cyclobenzaprine and xanax

flexeril

Since Xanax, Ultram and cyclobenzaprine are all capable of depressing the central nervous system, you may experience intensified side effects such as confusion, drowsiness, respiratory depression, and weakness. It is not recommended that you take all three of these medications regularly. Since these can all affect the brain, I would recommend that you ask your doctor about this. Also, I would ask your doctor about combining Prozac and tramadol.
=== Diazepam is an anti-anxiety medication in the benzodiazepine family, the same family that includes alprazolam (Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), lorazepam (Ativan), flurazepam (Dalmane), and others. Diazepam and other benzodiazepines act by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter (a chemical that nerve cells use to communicate with each other) that inhibits activity in the brain.
Have been on lorazepam and cyclobenzaprine muscle relaxers then have been taking them rather frequently but still following the proper dosage instructions. Started getting respitory depression think I almost died....stopped breathing in sleep...lungs seemed depleted yet constricted...weak in the diaphragm. Went off it now and now feeling what seems almost like heart attack symptoms.
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.
It has really taken me 4 years to be working full time, but I think its the Zoloft and I am doing more damage to my spine, all the driveing,,,,,,80miles roundtrip. I am on Norco 2-3 tabs a day and also Xanax. I need to get out of Pain..I live everyday wondering,,,,,,whats going to happen. I really like to sleep as my dreams are better than real life.........
However it was not as effective as cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) for muscle spasms. Frequent warm baths go hand and hand with these drugs, at least in my humble opinion. I hope this information is helpful. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
New to the community and wondering what would a hypothetical person starting Cold Turkey from now thru the next week.
I was just diagnosed with an autoammune disease and don't want to take plaquenil just yet. Doctor said to take celebrex and a muscle relaxer. I have been taking 1 mg of xanax for 3 weeks and before that it was about twice a week as needed. I was having such anxiety and sleep issues rhemy said to take it every day. Now 3 weeks later she wants to try the new coctail of celebrex and muscle relaxer.

Hey you!! Way to gooo!! Although you went for a flexeral, hey you did what you had to do right? I am assuming ( hope) it was to de-stress and possibly sleep? Long as you don;t get stuck trading one for another, you know what I mean. :) Those things, I hate em. The generic is "cyclobenzaprine" and they knock me OUT! I could not imagine 2. lol. Anyhow..I am so glad your here with us, thank you for teeling us your story and glad to see youy updating us along the way!!!
We thought perhaps her seizures were somehow connected to this. But, after seeing a Neurologist she was diagnosed with Venous Angioma and Cavernous Angioma and we were told she had a bleed. I know that Venous Angioma occurs during the embryo stage and I feel as though I am responsible for her problems and constantly looking for answers. As this is in the left temporal lobe of the brain, her speech has been affected and she talks with a slur.
or ask the doctor for a muscle relaxer like cyclobenzaprine or something that would help you sleep, relax your muscles and be less addictive? I was on xanax for years and had no trouble getting off of them but some do so you have to be careful. But you have to sleep!
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
I posted this under another topic on Klonopin but thought I'd start a thread all its own. I take Xanax and have thought about trying Klonopin since it's longer acting and to help me get off Xanax. I have read that Stevie Nicks had a really bad time with Klonopin and she said it caused her major weight gain. This CANNOT happen to me. Is it true Klonopin causes weight gain? Anyone experience this?
I would take an extra of my clonazepam, which is a sister to xanax, and lorazepam, or diazepam. ( I forget which is the xanax) ANyhow I have anxiety, and panic disorder so I am on those for that. But when I have tried not to take the vics...I would get where I could not sleep for nothing. My legs would not settle..felt like they just wanted to take off and run. Just horrible horrible! But like I said I would take an extra of those at bedtime, or a muscle relaxer.
1st Dr diag anxiety/panic and prescribed Xanax/Ambien, which gave relief. After a few months, Xanax started to require larger and larger doses to remain effective although we were still under the max recommended dose. 2nd Dr diag depression and prescribed Cymbalta. On 30mg Cymbalta, symptoms back to the same to worse as before Xanax, to which he added .25mg Zyprexa which now gives similar relief to Xanax. Negative side effect is 2% weight gain/month and lethargy with Zyprexa, so stopped it.
I also have a torturous time climbing steps, as well as stabbing cramps and pain in my legs. Leg and thigh weakness is profound, and progressive. Regardless, I wake up in pain, and I go to bed at night with severe pain. Up until recently, I was taking 1 Tylenol #3 at bedtime which helped to lessen the nighttime pain, and in another way, helped to ease the morning pain as well.
I take Gabapentin (pain med), cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer), Seroquel (anti psychotic) and klonopin (anti anxiety). I think I am the only one going thru this.
Prior to the onset of these headaches I was working as a Greenhouse Manager charged with the care and production of various perennial and annual plants. As mentioned before, this had been an aspiration of mine since graduating with a horticulture/floriculture production degree from Alfred State College. Due to the inability to function as any normal human being, I was unable to continue to work effectively and immediately sought medical attention.
Hydrocodone Oxycodone Ambien Morphine Dilaudid Methadone (to some extent. only took it for a few weeks) Cocaine Benzos of all sorts (mainly xanax) Phenobarbital AND...tramadol. Of ALL these drugs, and I may have left a couple out, the two drugs that were supposed to be non habit forming in the beginning, tramadol and ambien, were the WORST by far of all of them! The ambien I was given fresh out of detox from hydrocodone. Big mistake. I don't remember the next 3 years or so.
My Dr prescribes Cyclobenzaprine...those are wayy tooo much fo rme. I take ONE and I still can't shake the sleepiness most of the next day. I am not like that on the Soma..odd though as my cyclo's are only 10mg but apparently very potent..from my personal experience and from what Dr said. The soma's are 50mg..I don't get that. I got them from a friend of mine. I did take one earlier today and just now before I try and head to bed for the night.
Lost jobs, girl friend, just a massive dive. December was really bad for him and he now knows how much Xanax he was taking as he keeps finding empty bottles in his belongings. So far about 6 that had 30 2 mg bars, not counting the ones he got (3 more) between Xmas and New Years. I picked him up and brought him home the week before Xmas and those 2 weeks were a disaster. His mother and I talked to him constantly about the abuse and offered to try and get him help.

•Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), •Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and other tricyclic compounds (e.g., cyclobenzaprine, promethazine, etc.), or •Other opioids. Administration of tramadol may enhance the seizure risk in patients taking: •MAO inhibitors (see also WARNINGS - Use with MAO Inhibitors), •Neuroleptics, or •Other drugs that reduce the seizure threshold.
I think it was very kind of you to put all the info up like that..I too read some unrealistic information on Tramadol on here, when i was out of vicidan and wanted to feel a lil "high"I would take tramadol..my doc was xanax-but sometimes i took a whole bunch of vicidan or tramadol...you are right it is addicting, i know first hand and my father is highly addicted to it as well.
What I would fail to tell them is that I often added the Cyclo (usually one because they would simply melt me and that wasn't always the affect I was after), a Xanax and then later another Norco with that Ambien to help me sleep through it all. Some of you are still shaking your head and laughing at me. Whatever. Most of you kn ow where I am going with this...

I just took 2 xanax and am waiting for them to kick in. I hope I'm not trading one addiction for another??????? Am I?
