am i allergic to flexeril, ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd most PM drugs? I have scoliosis, a bulged disc, and very mild arthritis in my back, but the pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> get to be unbearable. my muscles are so tight and knotted that it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> leave me in tears (20 year old male). i have been taking flexeril for a year, and i have only used two bottles (60 10mg tablets) however, when i took one two nights ago, i began to shake and get very cold.
I have tried it all! 10mg Valium...NOTHING. I'm 5'7" 133lbs. I don't know if that's even important?? I want to sleep like a baby. Maybe Nyquil? I have RLS like an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> wouldn't believe. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> 3 "Simply Sleep," 2 "Benadryl" 2 "Flexiril," and all of that only gives me a seemingly un-interupted 3/4hours max. after that, I toss and turn. I get pissed off seeing 401am turn to 601...and then FUKC! Time to go to work...or school.
Many times I have to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> 15 mg or 20 mg of zolpidem tartrate. a couple of times I used 3 mg of Xanax. Both Flexeril <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl had been discontinued. How an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> still have these drugs?
I took a half of a phenergan pill on night 4 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd it seemed to help alot. Ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl (tylenol pm) didnt help me either.
but then again people will abuse just about anything, nyquil, ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl etc...I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd off of this drug for years...i use it during flare ups...never abused it nor wanted to...there is no high associated with it but it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> make u drowsy until u adjust to it....Lyrica is the latest nerve/blocker drug and it is being evaluated due to abuse....it is much stronger than nuerontin....I guess i just an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> not see how it would be abused but again...anything an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> be i guess....

I have been where an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> are..
I am trying to stay positive, but this is far from the first time I have stopped the narcotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I wonder if it ever will end. Just wanted an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> all to know how much help an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>'ve been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd thanks for being there!
Benadryl has almost the opposite affect on me -- it makes me feel wired <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd jittery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sleep is like an action movie that I'm participating in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd when I wake up a few hundred times a night, I'm totally exhausted, especially by morning. I'm getting ready to try muscle relaxers (flexeril? soma?) -- any experience out there? Has anyone transitioned from an anti-anxiety med (e.g., low dose ativan) for sleep to a muscle relaxer?? Curious....
What I say below may work for some people, nothing works the same universally, but I thought I'd share in case it even helped 1 person. as of Day 9 my sleeping returned to normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I no longer had to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> Flexeril to sleep after the first week. Things I think that helped - avoiding caffeine after my 1 morning cup and I've been avoiding sugary stuff. I also exercise before 7pm so I'm not amped up from the exercise when trying to go to bed. I never nap, even if I'm tired.
I was on Morphine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Vico for 12 yrs. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> have not been a long term user. If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> feel bad an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> a hot bath <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd soak. By day 5 I was ate gym swimming laps( maybe just too keep from jumping out of my skin But I was there. Hang tough it will be over soon and remember the lessons the pills have taught an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>. If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> find ambien it will help some with sleep. Distractions such as music at night has also helped keep my mind from racing too much. I am day 9 c/t and feeling pretty great.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>rself at home!
Have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> tried Soma? It's a central acting muscle relaxer like Zanaflex. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> Soma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Flexeril <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Soma is far better for me. Flexeril makes me feel very apathetic and tired. Soma does not have that effect on me.
One thing I found that helped me during some of the worst parts was Ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl. I helps an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> sleep, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd will relax an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> some during the day. It doesn't help much with that "feeling", but it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean>s some anxiety away. Drink lots of water, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> the "recipie" if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> want, some swear by it, for me it didn't do anything, and I was sick of taking pills altogether, so I threw the stuff away. I only kept the Multivitamins. Hot baths before bed help, so do showers.
as for Soma, I would stay far away from that. I've heard it is very addictive. I'm not sure about Flexeril <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd how addictive that is. My boyfriend an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean>s one a night for neck pain and finds it helpful. The doctor didn't mention anything about it being addictive, and she usually does. For an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r back, are an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> taking 800 mg. ibuprofen (though make sure an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> protect an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r stomach with Prilosec or something.) also, ThermaCare back patches are great.
helps nausea and the runny eyes people get someones during wd..muscle relaxers like flexeril, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd many others zyoprexa <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd many others an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> help as well...look in ut cabinet and c what u got there if u dont have anything in the cabinet and the valerian or melatonin doesnt work..ask u dr..
I don't sleep well at nights because my legs and arms would feel restless. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> neurontin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Flexeril at nights to help me alittle bit. I'm wondering how long will I experience this? Im afraid that I would become dependent on those medications. Thanks!
)It is hard to sleep with the hard collar on, so I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> a Ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl to sleep.as well. I have had some headaches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd some incisional pain but I was warned that would be the case.If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> wear glasses, be careful because an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t look down and may walk into something an fall. (I wear contacts, so this is not a problem.) It really helps to have a good support system.
Thanks for all an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r comments and advice, I appreciate it! I called my doc today <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd he's phoning in a scrip for Zofran <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Flexeril, so hopefully those will give me some relief with nausea and muscle pain. I'm looking into options for sleep....melatonin hasn't been strong enough, Benadryl makes me groggy in the morning, and apparently I sleepwalk (and sleep-cook and sleep-clean) on ambien, so that's out! Figuring out ways to deal with sides has definitely kept me on my toes!
This afternoon I took a zanax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd tonight before I go to bed I plan on taking a flexeril to help with the muscle twitching . any suggestions ?
withdrawals from roxy 30s day 4 will a flexiril help me at all relax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd possibly sleep ?>????
barbie I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean>n Ultram, Ultracet, Effxor, Neurontin, Lyrica, Flexeril <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd pain meds. all had side effects or made me sick because of UC and IBS. Right now only doing 5mils of Fexeril at night, 20 mils of Tranxene 3 times daily and tylenol. Helping with sleep problems, eases pain just a bit and keeps me calm. Problem though is sleepy, loopy minded, and balance is bad. If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> do not have stomach problems Flexeril might help an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> several doses daily.
Most sleep specialists warn that Ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> have some adverse effects on REM stage sleep. My neurologist suggested Flexeril or Zanafelx as better choices. I typically reach for 10 mg of Valium.
I have been having panic attacks, mood swings <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd nightmares lately <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I am really scared. I work full time overnights <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sleep during the day. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> any time off of work so I am basically looking for the easy way out. I am not even sure if I am taking enough to be addicted. at this point, I am more afraid of w/d symptoms than I want to quit. any thoughts or advice on this?
Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd make an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>rself comfy. all are welcome.
ambien(Zolpidem) Lunesta(Eszopiclone) Sonata(Zaleplon) Imovane(Zopiclone) also to be avoided are muscle relaxants like Soma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd flexeril. they are not only addictive, but they will make an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> behave like a monkey and then not remember it later. If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>'re actively abusing opiates aND taking Benzos/hypnotics/muscle relaxants, then an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> are basically getting down on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r hands and knees and begging for an overdose.
I also got melatonin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Ben<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dryl <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd took massive quantities of those to help sleep. I now only an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> Benadryl every once in a while to sleep. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> do this! It really ***** for about 2 weeks and then it gets better! I promise. Molly P.S. My father and grandfather are doctors and I will be graduating in May from nursing school, so I kinda have some knowledge and experience in the medical field.
I started taking Trazadone for sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd it is giving me headaches. I cut it from 150 mg to 75 mg and that helped some. Will the headaches eventually go away?
If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> absolutetly need something I think that flexeril is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r best option. I used it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> are right, it just puts me to sleep which might be what an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> need. Of course, don't drive while taking it...an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> know the routine...Good luck!
Soma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd flexeril are boyh muscle relaxers. They should help an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> relax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sleep, especially if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> have the restless legs at night. Hang in there.
