Flexeril and dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril and dogs

flexeril

Im currently out of tramadol and xanax and have no choice but to go cold turkey, my doctor is a pusher and wouldnt help me anyway. I just took my last dose of xanax last night(2 mgs) and took 200 mgs of tramadol about four hours ago. Im feeling withdrawals already and i know its reallllly idiotic to go cold turkey off xanax so my husband(who doesnt use at all) is trying to track some xanax down for me so i dont have a seizure or die.
I've had dogs for 60 years and know a little something about them. I recently got ripped off by a vet and didn't feel to be had again. Of course, if I had the money, I would have called the vet, who would have told me to bring my dog in and then run expensive tests and then told me what I already knew and then prescribed a vet formulation of flexeril that is identical to human.
-) Currently I'm in a wheelchair because I stumbled over my dogs bed and broke both lower leg bones ... for the second time in five years. I guess I shouldn't have kept myself so slender ... and should have taken my vitamins! Go figure. I have no doubt that the combination of meds you're taking aren't helping you're 'outlook' on life. No doubt that is why the doctor(s) keep trying to get you on antidepressants ... also because depression can cause pain.
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.
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
I feel more tense too and am getting some brain zaps. I also take Wellbutrin,Voltaren, Flexeril and Topamax which may be helping some. That is interesting about Topamax and Fibro...I've never heard that before. I take it for migraines and I have not lost alot of weight but I don't eat alot to begin with, but I am over weight. My daughter lost a lot of weight on it she had to get off of it...it actually blocked her sweat glands.
It sounds like you have everything you need The Hylands helped me tremendously as did the Valerian Root. I also walked everyday with my dogs. the movement helped more then anything. with moving and packing it will help with the anxiety and aches. I took Hot showers and they worked just as well as a bath.. make sure you drink a lot of fluids. although you were on a small amount it still causes slight dehydration so get a good sport's drink to replace electrolytes.
Wellbutrin XL300 mg daily, flexeril 10 mg q HS, naproxyn or ibuprofen sporadically. Vitamins and supplements sporadically. Non meat eater. Moderate exercise and work entire life. Never smoked, ETOH 1-2 glasses of wine a week. For the past 5 months I have noticed increasing lower extremity weakness (Right greater than Left) with knees buckling with no warning and falls. Gait has now deteriorated and I have foot drop and hip flexor weakness. I cannot run or perform RAM.
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).
I know I'm no doctor but a pain like this lasting 4 weeks is not normal. She prescribed me to Immtrex and Flexeril. I've been taking the Flexeril three times a day since and it's helped some but only at the times I take it. I'm iffy on the Immtrex, I took it for a headache I was getting and it made my heart pound in my chest. I've searched the web up and down and the way I'm feeling leads me to whiplash however I haven't suffered any neck trauma, it all developed after a migraine.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
When I was pregnant with my daughter at 20 I had gestational diabetes and 2 years later it came back full time. Your poor doggie! I have 2 dogs a toy poodle Jody and a Heinz 57 Missy. My poor Missy is 14 years old and was just diagnosed with congestive heart failure. We have had her since 1995 and it is going to be a very sad day when she is no longer around.
Soma and flexeril are boyh muscle relaxers. They should help you relax and sleep, especially if you have the restless legs at night. Hang in there.
I plan on sitting around and doing office paperwork (can't find my desk and its tax time) and playing with Diesel and trying not fall over things that are not there.
I walk my dogs as soon as I am able to in the morning, and it's an agonizing 1-2 block walk, I can't do more then that. Taking motrin does absolutely nothing for me, I have flexeril, and have taken more then I'm supposed too and that isn't helping either. My GP said I have a little arthritis, but a little wouldn't cause agonizing pain would it?
I was up and around cooking, cleaning, on my computer and outside with the dogs. One last benefit. It is an anti-seizure med that blocks.the pain.signals and relaxes the nerves. You won't have to worry about having a seizure. Good luck to you. I hope you find relief soon. This drug for me worked.immediately so maybe you coild get a sample from your dr. Thank you again. Take care.
Like right now I have been up for 3 hours and I dont have any leg pain at all and a TINY amount of back and shoulder pain/tension. I have taken No Percocet today and only Taken 10 mg of flexeril which I use for my muscle relaxer cus my shoulders have huge knots in them. On top of that I had my 3rd session of Accupuncture on friday....I hope these good results are here to stay! I feel good!!

Hello Tramadol Warriors! Top 'o the evening to you and welcome. We're glad you found us! You can do this.
I am having a hard time stopping and I know I need to . I have taken this for a long time. First, I was prescribed this med and then I found other ways to get it. Knowbody knows I take it as much as I do. Anyone....have some advice?
I tried doing a fast taper from Fentanyl (really more of a CT,) and at the same time came off oxycodone, flexeril, ambien, ativan, and maybe more I can't remember. I wound up in the hospital ssvsrely dehydrated. When I tried again, I tapered one drug at a time and it was still very difficult. I was coming off these voluntarily.
I went to my GP complaning of no sense of smell, saw a surgeon and surgery was recomended, I was given a prescription for Prednisone, a steroid, this gave me some sense of smell, and here's the but, I had the operation and still could not smell, so more Prednisone, well the upshot is that the steroids have caused my Osteo-Necrosis, this is when the heads of the long bones die, so have now had core decompression on one hip and the other totally replaced. Oxycontin.
It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been over and over it again and again. It makes no sense that I would know more as a user of the drug than they would. There's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on other drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. It's a Narcotic. It's just been slipped thru the schedule.
Sounds too good to be true. (AND IT IS!) The fact is, there's already pain killers here in the house and I'm not going to take any of those either. I'm not taking anything. I'm going to ice it, lay down, rest and realize that my body has been thru a heelllla fight and it just needs a break, a breath. A moment. A freakity frackity day off. I've been in a tough battle for 21 solid cold turkey days and before that; the taper AKA "Let the pills run out....
The cat passed away from kidney failure and I had to leave on of my dogs with hubby. I brought the other one here to live with me. She's the light of my life. I still haven't get past the cravings but am taking xanax and sleep alot. Actually, to be honest...I'm so damn depressed I can't stand myself. At least when I sleep I can forget this miserable life for awhile. So......back to the bed for me. I don't think I can get past this addiction. I'm counting the days till my next refill....13 days.
Well, about a month and a half ago I almost went into a coma, I was asleep for over 50 hours - I could hear the phone ringing as my husband and brother and mother called and called, hear the tv, the dogs barking but could not wake up. I stay in bed most all day every day and have not had the motivation to even check into these drugs. So my brother looked into it and said, I'm lucky I'm alive now.
