Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril and clonazepam

flexeril

I also suffer from from chrons and migraine's and take topamax and asacol and robinul and reglan. My doctor started me on clonazepam for 3 weeks to give my liver a rest form the lortab, but I already have been getting some side effects that scare me like moody ness, feely depressed and not feeling right. My pain is getting worse since I stopped taking the lortab ( which I only took 1 tablet(s) 3 times a day.
I started the trazadone about 2 months ago as I was not sleeping and the clonazepam and the flexeril just weren't helping. GP gave me trazadone and said that I could take up to 3- 50mg. tablets at night. I have not done this since I think this maybe where the lbs. come in. I also take premarin and estrogen, they, too, may play a part. I finally get to go to the rheumatologist a week from today.
=== 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.
There must be something I could take besides klonopin to relax my head and jaw. Flexeril? I kind of like the fact that my head changed shape. I am just concerned that I am not stable on what I am taking and I would like to get a job.
Ok, I'm new and have been reading what everyone wrote I hade been taking percocet 10 and. Ultram for well over a year and tomorrow will be day one without them. I have been here befor and never have made it past day two and need help! I more than anything want to kick this. I have 3 kids and they need a good mom they don't understand why I get depressed can't even cook dinner. Please if you have advice I will take anything.
I am currently taking celexa and clonazepam which my psychiatrist changed me to from ativan.I have been on about 11 different types of SSRI's for the past 6 years and celexa helped me more than anything but has slowly went down hill.I guess where I suffer from depression ,anxiety and ocd (obsessive compulsive disorder).The ultram withdrawls seem to make them alot worse.jessesarpy & tex3 thank you very much for your help it means alot and I will keep posting and let you know how it turns out.
I think we all agree that opiate withdrawal is one of the most deblitating physical/mental processes, an inevitable readjustment that can (uh, and probably WILL) fill your life with unfathomable anguish and depression and misery. But, like everyone says, it goes away.
At night my lower back frequently tightens or spasms, and in my sleep I'll arch my back and tightly lock my legs in a stretch to counter the lower back spasm, and it will wake up in the process; this may, at times, contribute to the leg spasms, but it doesn't happen everytime. I'm still having moderate groin and hip pain since the lumber surgery, but benefits have far outweigh the discomfort, and the pain is slowly but surely diminishing.
Supplements include 500 mg Fish Oil and 1 Sustenex Probiotic daily. With this medicine regime I can still use Flexeril or Hydroco for a damaged rotator cuff and Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue. I probably only use pain meds two or three times a month. Probably because I continue to keep the dosage low, I don't ever have that needy feeling to increase dosage. Oh yes and switching from Xanax to Klonopin.......I just quit one and started the other. But remember, I was on a very low dosage.
Opioid-induced hyperalgesia is a condition where the increased use of opiates, like Oxycontin and hydrocodone, heightens one's sensitivity to discomfort and reduces their tolerance for pain. Essentially, people will increase the amount of painkillers they are taking as their discomfort continues to escalate, but the added medication can actually make their pain worse.
My meds include 4 asthma meds, gabapentin and clonazepam for nerve pain, a migraine med, flexeril for spasms, ambien, and a pain med that I try not to take, but with the constriction and spasms I have taken 1/2 of one a day. Not sure what any of you may make of all this, but any comments will be appreciated-and please forgive any typos....I used to be great at writing, but now I lose words and spelling often.
I am titrating up my carbamazepine and the clonazepam because the chewing muscles are in spasm most of the time. I don't like it and was very willing to experience it all vicariously through Ren. Pain meds here I come! I hope to be seen back on the board soon. Thank you to everyone that has sent messages. Thank you to all of you that have kept the board healthy and vibrant. You are the best!
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.
For me it's more annoying than anything I take flexeril and clonazepam when it gets bad.
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.
Yes, I'm sure. Muscle relaxants like carisoprodol (Soma), cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), and even diazepam (Valium), and clonazepam (Klonipin) are not narcotic agents, although the last two are benzodiazepines. Ask your doc about dantrolene (Dantrium).
pmid=16343787 I saw a neurologist in August. The neurologist performed an EMG, EEG, and an MRI. The EMG measures the electronic signals that are traveling through the nerves after being stimulated by a small electric shock (it's pretty painless). when the muscle is shocked, it should send an electrical signal, then electrical activity should go silent. If the EMG equipment sees ongoing signals afterwards, then that can signify neurological issues.
I've had the same problem, and I've taken sleep aids for years also. Now I take Restoril one night and the next I use over the counter sleep aids. I know how miserable it is not to get enough sleep. I don't like taking the sleeping pills, but in order to function at all, I have to. 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.
I have also found that Rescue Remedy spray helps me to relax and sleep easier. And a massage is a great way to loosen those muscles and get your body in the mood t sleep.
I take Zolpidem for sleep every night. I don't take Lyrica but take Gaba, flexeril and Clonazepam. The Zolpidem puts me out very well, but I still wake up with pain throughout the night like you mention. I take the 10 mg with 1mg of Clonazapam. Can you ask him for a anti-anxiety medication to take with the sleeper? Maybe ativan which has a shorter half life (I think---I'm not a doctor)?
Flexeril (muscle relaxer) Klonopin - generic brand clonazepam. (anxiety and relaxer as well that helps spasms on my back) Robaxin - generic brand Methocarbamol. (muscle relaxer) Baclofen (muscle relaxer) - But I had severe allergic reaction to this med. Nausea: Penergan Compazine ------------------------ I have tried Lidoderm patch, very little effective and doesn't really relieve my pain.
had prescribed the Klonopin. My Neuro and PCP are pretty straight forward that vitamins and Calcium are fine, but I should stay away from other supplements since the interaction of these OTC supplements have not been well studied with the other medications. The benzodiazepines are well understood and my docs consider them safe for use with my Copaxone, Baclofen, IVSM, Norflex and Lisinopril.
a beta blocker (same as blood pressure med) and of course anti-depressant. But..I noticed my clonazepam and beta blocker do not seem to work all that great...and I really would hate to take more than I am suppose to. I have though taken one in the afternoon during alot of this with the meds. I am suppose to take 2/day.. they are .5's. But I will take one at bedtime if I have to. I also have muscle relaxers, which I hope will work for that restfull leg sh*T.
At the ER, when I was placed into the MRI machine I had to lie flat on my back and while in the machine the buttock area and outside part of my thigh went into major spasms. I spent the next 4 weeks in bed writhing in pain. Meprigan didn't help my pain at all. For 3 years after that, I couldn't lie flat on my back because the muscle in my hip and thigh pull so much, go into spasms and get pin stick sensations in my thgh.
I am in good general health. I have clonodine, clonazepam and neurontin to help me along with Flexeril. Is it safe to stop or do I have to taper? I have been prescribed these drugs for severe, unrelenting pain in both of my feet. I have been to neurologists, rheumatogists, podiatrists, to no avail. I am desperate to get off these meds as they are changing my personaltiy and they no longer work anyway. I don't want to ruin my liver. Is it safe to quit cold turkey?
Posted By Dru on December 22, 1998 at 18:06:25: Upon getting out of bed one morning in early September, I fell down since my right leg would not support me. This lasted for only a few minutes. (This recurred once early in December, again upon awakening.) Since September, I have experienced a variety of symptoms that vary in severity day to day, even hour by hour.
I am only on Clonazepam 1 mg and 10 mg Flexeril. I take OTC medication as I was trying to stay away from any other controlled medication. I know if I am taken off of the clonazepam I will not sleep. It helps me reach REM sleep and stops the tremors. I have tried all out there and this is only med that works!
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Gorgeous sunny day. And people who understand. Welcome. We're so glad you found us!
Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
