Flexeril and urine drug screen

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril and urine drug screen


I have a question, I took a drug screen but I took flexeril, will flexeril make you fail a drug screen. Anyone that can help me I will be ever so greatful!!!
I am being treated at a local pain management clinic with flexeril, cymbalta, an anti-inflamatory, trazadone to help me sleep, and percocet 7.5 for pain. Injections in my back and neck failed. I also underwent RFNA (basically had the nerves to the affected areas burned), this procedure also failed. The clinic I attend, as do most clinics, require regular urine screens to assure that the meds are being taken properly.
The drug screen had soma, flexeril, codiene, darvocet, ampetemines and it said inconsistant on a couple of them- I was taking ms contin and lortab,ibuprofen, cipro for uti, and some supplements from health food store. The same meds I have always taken. As for the day of the drug screen there was no one to take the cup from me I stood in the hall holding it for 5 minutes before a nurse said to put it in the little room with other cups of urine.
Clonidine(a high blood pressure medication)for your hot and cold flashes and night sweats.....Flexeril(A muscle relaxant)for your stomach and leg spasms (the leg spasms is where they get the term "kicking the habit")milk of magnesia for vomiting and St. John's Wort(can be found in any health food store or supermarket)for anxeiety(the shakes) you can beat the Opiates and opioids!! Nothing will help you to kick Xanax.....NEVER START!
Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about the VA and how it works so I don't really have any advice. Yes, they can do a drug screen by using blood (even hair, saliva, any sort of bodily fluid really) but in most cases they don't, I believe it has something to do with the cost and the fact that they probably just don't want to. I hope you're doing OK today. and I wish you the best of luck sir!
A few months ago, I had really bad neck pain on the left, along with a lump behind my ear and had an Xray, which of course was negative. My PCP said it was muscle strain and gave me Flexeril and Iburofen. The pain went away, lump is still there, but of course nothing was on the Xray so the doctor dismissed it as a lymph node. About 6 weeks ago, I noticed my big toe on my left foot was twitching. Moving back and forth by itself.
I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
My son recently tested positive for TCA (tricyclic antidepressants ) He's has taken L-Tyrosine, benedryl, immodium and melatonin. Everything else on the 10 panel drug screen is negative. Does anyone know what caused this?
Well July 25, 2012, I received a letter which was dated June 19 but postmarked by regular mail on July 25, 2012, stating he was terminating our relationship because I failed a drug screen for Xanax and Hydromorphone. Now, the Xanax has been prescribed from my PCP for the last five years, no break, and the Hydromorphone was prescribed in February.
Then there was usually another drug put on top of that Tramadol. And they told me to take more. I always thought it was the other drug, not the Tramadol. Yeah. I was wrong. 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.
It does not seem to be related to exercise since I can go for a run and feel nothing... but then I can be sitting and all of a sudden my calves (always both at the same time) start to ache and feel tight. Sometimes they feel so sore that I can almost not walk. Water seems to help on occasions. I can't understand why all of a sudden I may be becoming dehydrated so that doesn't seem logical... The aches come and go without warning and sometimes it's much worse than other times.
I was referred to pain management from my neuro and my new pmd is sending me for a urine drug screen. Reading from my paper, I'm being screened for Amphetamines, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Cannabinoid, Cocaine, Opiates and Phencyclidine. That's it. And they are not using a gas chromotography to test for opoids. For those of you in pain management, is this just a baseline type screening, or are they digging with those?
I was very close with my nurse, and I asked her after why I wasn't informed about it, not that I cared, but I was just curious, she said anyone with state insurance was required a drug test, and a signature or approval was required. Ridiculous, maybe, but I'm sure it's just for the best interest of the child.
Hi Everyone, We're so glad to see you here. Please come in and make yourself at home.
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....
She said this drug has damaged our neurotransmitters. and it may take up to a year for it to correct and possibly need help with antidepressents. I just wanted to tell you the reality. Because I thought the worst was over....and it isn't, at least for me. I know how horrible the emotions are. To hear and see a grown man to his knees tells me I'm not just overreacting as a crazy woman....this is real.....be safe....you are not alone. Oh dear!!!!
If my current script had run out, I have no doubt that he would've written a new one then and there and sent me home. I had to do a urine screen and sign a pain contract, and then we scheduled some new appointments....and that was it :-). Simple and to the point. And what I had been begging my neurologist to do for 8 years (send me to a plastic surgeon to talk about a breast reduction) my PM doctor did on the FIRST visit. I was very happy.
When they tested him, they found speed in his urine sample, and he swears that he has never done that, and I belive him. My question is, is there any way that any of these drugs has speed in them or was it just a medical mistake, or something else?
For your own piece of mind I would buy a urine test at the drug store and do it myself as well. The urine tests used to screen for Hydrocodone levels which is the drug you have in the Vicodin 10/325 is the one you will want to make sure to get. You have to read the boxes carefully as they don't all screen for that drug. They aren't very expensive and then you will have the ability to urine screen yourself once and see how the test comes out for yourself.
I know what everyone on this board is going through. It was a drug that made me feel great and energized and I was happy taking them. I cannot find anything online stating what this drug can do to your body but I just assume it can't be good. Try what I suggested. It couldn't hurt.
My Gp keeps trying to get me onto it though. Give yourself some time on the Subxone too its a different drug and only 1/4 of an opiate compared to afull opiate like methadone. A month to stablise would be good for you.... if you still feel the same try 6mg..Suboxone..
Vicodin was my first and favorite drug. It started after a series of surgeries and it got bad from there. I craved them bad (still do but I am fighting it) and would do almost anything to get them. In my home town pain killers are like the black plaque and it is very hard to be a recovering addict here but I want it bad and if you do you can also beat it.
I have been on naproxen, on Flexeril and that's it. Neither helped very much. I have been to another chiropractor, who did order an x-ray. He said something about deterioration of the spine and told me I must come for treatments for a long time. My whole upper body had started to twist a bit, as I tensed up from the pain and he said he could fix that. Well, I did go three times weekly for about six months.

I guess I forgot to say that I have severe lower backpain due to an accident 3 years ago. I started off using this drug for relief and the longer I took it the more I needed to get the same effect. I hadn't realized I had a problem until I came to this website, now I see that I do. I do receive a script for this med, but I've had a few doctors in the past few years because of insurance purposes so it has been easier to get these pills.
My doctor put me on neurontin, and it did help. It's actually an epilepsy drug, but there are tons of anecdotal evidence of it helping for other things (off-label). It helps rewire misfiring nerves. After my pregnancy, I took it for foot pain. Didn't help my foot, but in a few days it totally solved my contestant feeling that I needed to use the restroom even when I didn't. My docs also put me on norortriptyline (antidepressant).
I have no other symptoms ( I dont think) I have had blood tests, urine tests and X rays all of which are OK. I would love to hear it anyone has any ideas what this could be as my Doctor has openly admitted he is stumped. Ta..........
