Flexeril and lortab

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril and lortab

flexeril

I am detoxing from Fentanyl and hydrocodone. Two weeks without the Fent patches. Two days without Hydro. All the usual supects; twitchy, nausea, stomach pain, not sleeping, achy, creepy crawley. My question is, would Flexeril or Baclofen (muscle relaxers) ease the cramps/pain to make it easier to sleep? Would it set me back as far as getting off the codone? Is it an opiate? Don't want to do anything to set this process back. Too much hell to go through. But sleep would be good.
I had 3 oral surgeries and have been taking 10-12 lortab 7.5's a day for 2 months.My last dose was Saturday night at 10pm.It is now Monday and my legs hurt so bad.I could not sleep last night because my legs hurt and I could not stop moving them.What is going on with my body?My whole body is beginning to ache,I have diaharrea and just want to sleep but can't.I took Tylenol Pm last night but I am wondering if that is just making all of this worse.Can someone tell me what's going on with me?
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep, Clonidine helps with the creepy-crawly feeling and helps stabilize the blood pressure. All of these medications will make your life easier during this time. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
I finally decided to stop. I am in my 14 hour of withdrawels and I am taking Flexeril for muscle spasms, Klonopin as needed for anxiety and "shakes" and immodium, I am also taking a great multi vitamin and an antioxident supplement. My biggest problem is that I have a 5 yr old that I take to school in the am and a baby I take care of all day. My question is...is there anything else I can do?
I have been taking two to three 10 mg tablets a day, to help me stay away from Norco, and the rest of the opioid family... and now I would like to stopt the flexeril... It is apparently much like the old tricyclic antidepressants imipramine and desipramine... so I wonder what kind of titration was used for them...?
I thank God I didn't take 4 a day like he wanted me to of Soma and Lortab. As far as Valium and anti-depressants, once you get on anti-depressants you are on them for life. If you stop they can cause siezures and even death. I know Valium is bad but these Generic ones are nothing like the name brand ones. The name brand I can tell I took something, the Generic are so watered down I can hardly feel them. I think the Soma is going to be a challenge, I will return to not being able to sleep.
i would advise against self-medicating with Methadone - it is WAY more powerful than lortab and harder to get off of and you would be swapping one problem for another.. yes, you can detox yourself it isnt that hard just maybe 5-7 days of discomfort and then dealing with the mental battle of staying off pills... try not to be so hard on yourself, you are not alone none of us wanted to get hooked on them but there is a way out if you do whatever it takes...
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin is a great help for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose for sleep. Clonidine regulates blood pressure, creepy-crawly feeling and will make withdrawals easier. Please don't start taking the opiates again as it will only throw you back into withdrawals once you stop again, or make you relapse.
I was so happy when my neurosurgeon referred me to pain mgmt.I thought it would be the answer to all my prayers and it has helped a lot .I also take flexeril and neurontin w/ my pain meds but I am still suffering.I thank God I found this site .Thank you so much for your kind welcome. I can't tell you what it means to have someone to talk to that understands. I will try to muster up the courage to talk w/ my PM about this .
I have taken lortab 10 for 1 1/2 years and had gotten up to 10 pills a day and quit cold turkey at home. It has been pure hell. I started taking vitamin c, but it leaves a really bad taste in my mouth. I also take an occasional flexeril when the pain is so bad, and an occasional zanax for the heart palps. I am so tired- no energy, today actually feels better, but still achy. I hear exercise, but I have no energy and tire very easy, how long is this going to take.
I have contant muscle spasms in my neck, occasional nerve pain down my legs, and pain in elbow, hip, jaw, ankle, you name it. I take flexeril (does little for me, causes some lightheadedness)and would like to change the prescript. I also take Nortriptyline and Lortab. I drink maybe 2 16 oz bottles of water a day. I switch between organic milk and soymilk. I eat a fair amount of a variety of beans, cheese pizza (bad I know), and pasta. I try to use olive oil when possible.
If I am having a good day then I do things. I am also on placquenil, darvocet, lortab, flexeril and lyrica. I use my lyrica according to my pain level because of the side effects of increase appetite and weight gain. Having rheumatoid you surely don't want to be heavy. Taking an early medical retirement was not so bad. I have more money now than I did when I was working. When working you seems to keep putting yourself in more bills. I say go for it and enjoy the rest of your life.
I suffer from 3 bulging discs and take flexeril and lortab as needed for the discomfort (usually once every few months or so). Occasionally I suffer from heartburn and was told certain antacids react differently with different medicines. I've never heard of this and was wondering if there was any truth behind it.
Spoke with her recently and she is still having the same symptoms -- taking morphine 2x/day and Lortab for the breakthrough pain with minimal relief. The major muscle goup on the front of your thigh is called the quadriceps (actually made up of 4 different muscles) -- the main mover (rectoris femoris) is actually a knee straightener and a hip bender. At its shortest point, the hip is bent with the knee straight.
Everyone is different in their detox, My day 10 I started feeling much better and more energy, I was taking lortab 10 + 10 a day or sometimes more. The xanax helped me sleep thru a lot of it, and flexeril for the cramps in my joints but I agree with others that if you can make yourself move, walk around, I tired easy, but that's o.k.-take it slow and don't give up.
i am on lortab 10/5 which is vicodin and parafon forte 500 muscle relaxerwhich is for my disc degeneration and i have arthritis in my lower back....then my neck is messed up but nobody has been able to tell me exactly what is wrong they just say the muscles must be somehow messed up.....it does help my arms and legs and the rest of my body a little but it only last for 2 - 3 hours if i am not have a bad day.... and the night is the worst for me... i dread it somedays....
I have been taking tramadol, lortab, and flexeril for arthritis for tmj for a injury I recieved form getting hit by a car when I was younger. 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.
I take Neurontin, Flexeril, Phenergan, Lidoderm patches and sometimes Lortab for the pain. I welcome anytype of help, answer, or suggestion. I am very scared! A little bit of history about myself. On November 4th, 2008 I was advised I had little stomach lining after I had the light ran down my throat. And that I would have to start taking iron shots, B12 shots and I can't remember the other information the doctor have me.
I have trazadone but it just makes me tired and anxious and flexeril which doesn't seem to do anything at all. Did I try to do to much at once? I'm starting to think I should have done one at a time....but I'm a "right now" kinda person, and think I just wanted to be totally clean too fast.
My husband has a c6, c7 dislocation. Been managing with medication (lortab and flexeril) but still in pain. Meeting with the neurosurgeon on the 23rd of May. Has anyone had the surgery? He hates living on medication and expensive without insurance...
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.
Now I am going cold turkey and all I have is some vitamins, and flexeril. The ortho doc put in Ultram for me. Should I take it. Will it help me with the w/ds. Bottom line - my reg. doc was not in. New doc wanted to be a **** and said no meds. Go cold turkey and deal with it. I asked if there were any non-narcotic meds to take (clonidine ect.), he said nope. Anybody have any Idea's. I need them. My wife understands how bad this is going to suck for me now.
) My surgeon said this was a 'corrective surgery' and any complications or future problems dealing with back/hip/leg pain would most likely not be a result of my rods. I'm frustrated, hurting and tired of taking flexeril every night...it makes me feel too lethargic.
I have been on Methadone for the past 5 years and also take Lortab for break through pain and also Celebrex and have a TENS unit. I have been to lots of specialist and everyone reccomends different things which Workmans Comp seldom will pay for. Finally After almost 8 years I get to go back to the Neurosurgeon to discuss surgery options on the 20th of April. following is my MRI results condensed. at L3-L4 there is a diffuse posterior disc bulge without evidence of hernation.
I am 30 days clean today from a 7 year addiction to those and I am still having withdrawals like fatigue, insomnia and horrible bone and low back pain. I have about 90 lortab in my cabinet and it is very hard not to take them for the pain but every day for the last 30 days I have managed to stay away from them. I am using ibuprofen and rubbing mineral ice on my back and wrapping it with an ace bandage and lying on a heating pad every night. It really helps. I also take HOT bath soaks.
My husband and I are also on Suboxone and are really doing very well w/ that. It has changed my life and I believe that it was the best and ONLY choice for us. Wow - being on this side of things is AMAZING. I am really loving life and I don't think I have EVER said that in my life. Anyway - I WILL be on here later tonight, but you can also email me at mistake.***@**** anytime if you would like.
answering service and the guy on call must've felt sorry for me. He prescribed 4 Lortab. My husband and I went through the drive thru window at Walgreens at 1:00 a.m. All I could think of was the fact that we've got babies that are born into this world feeling (withdrawal) like I was feeling. Now I'm on vicodin (5 mg per pill). I think I'm making some progress, but still wake up in the night after 6-7 hrs. Any suggestions on making this easier? How long it takes? Anything?
