Common Questions and Answers about Mobic muscle relaxer

mobic

I am trying to find a muscle relaxer that is not addicting that will help me when I need it.. I have taken the following in the past.. Flexiril- helps some.. not all the time.. makes me sleepy Skelaxin- didn't work at all Soma- doesn't do anything for me.. I wonder how people get high from it.. I dont feel anything from it.. Robaxin- (do they even make this anymore?) I took this one along time ago.. I remember it helping some..
I had to stop it by the 5th day because the side effects were awful and that pill almost killed me. As far as I know this medication (Mobic) is prescribed for arthritis. For pain I took a muscle relaxer Flexeril and it worked since the first day I took it. In 2 days I was pain free in my neck, arms and shoulders after having non stop pain and numbness for months.
some times when you are on a muscle relaxer for a long period of time it can cause twitting.
I was also prescribed Skelaxin which is a joke for a muscle relaxer.. with as much pain and spasms I am in this isn't even touching it.. Any help would be appreciated..
Could they tell anymore from an MRI than a CAT scan? She is being sedated with a Muscle Relaxer, Vivacan (1/2 pill 4-6 hrs), and Mobic. Our concerns are that she is still light sensitive, open eyes for several minutes results in eyes twitching, and she has had a lot of need to cover her eyes with her hands, towel, etc. when she is awake. Our intuition says we need to get a neurologist involved. How long should we wait?
I was told you needed to take it for several weeks for it to work well, but I decided I could not go that long without sleep so stopped taking both. I now take Mobic and sometimes Relaflex ( muscle relaxer) at nite.
I have learned that when my neck is starting to swell or spasm my ears begin to ring and thats my cue to take an anti inflammatory or a muscle relaxer. It all depends weather I am working or at home as to which one I take. Just wanted to give my opinion that I do think it is related to Cervical issues, Good Luck.
And if my back gets bad and really tight which it does fairly often right now cause I had spinal surgery 5 months ago two bone fusions and two screws but neway back to what u was sayin when it gets tight I also take baclofen which is a muscle relaxent and between those two I have no problems and I prefer baclofen over flexeril cause flexiril knocks me out and also skelaxin is also another good muscle relaxer to that my doc said tell ppl bout causeost docs will give u handful of samples of and i
My PCP, at this same time, prescribed 15mg of Mobic (an NSAID), and 10mg Flexeril (a muscle relaxer) to treat my low back pain which I started taking daily for 1 month. I have since discontinued those meds, and am not having the low back pain. My PCP prescribed Bentyl, for colon spasms... it did nothing for the pain. He also prescribed aciphex for me to take daily (I don't seem to have heart burn or any other GERD type symptoms). I took it for a week and stopped because it wasn't helping.
Right now, I am only taking (for the Fibro in general) Robaxin, which is a muscle relaxer that I like a lot, and I just started Mirapex and it seems to be working already for the aches, etc. I am still exhausted...
I do smoke and I am also on the Nuva Ring. they also gave me a script for Skelaxin, which is a worthless muscle relaxer in my opinion. I have only taking maybe 4 of those.. Any ideas??
i take long lasting and short lasting pain meds, plus a muscle relaxer. i am about at my wits end, this has been going on for almost a year. my question is have you any ideas, or have you heard of this type of pain before? i know you can't diagnose me through the internet, but maybe you have some ideas.......does it sound like psychosomatic pain?
My doctor has also got me on Prozac (depression), Depakote (mood stabilizer), Norco (pain medicine), Soma (muscle relaxer), and the low dose of Savella (25 mg x 2 a day.) As for non-narcotic meds, there are plenty out there that you can give a try-I did. Some suggestions to look into: Flexoril, Methocarbamine, Skelaxin, Mobic, Norflex, and many others. Here's a link to an article I got from Web MD in my email inbox: 5 Types of medications help ease Fibromyalgia symptoms. http://www.webmd.
I am taking a very strong NSAID now plus an antiseizure med, a muscle relaxer, and a low dose of vicodin. I stopped the NSAID for a short time and my body (especially my shoulder and my lower back) swelled up so bad. When I began taking the NSAID again my condition improved. I don't get pain relief per se from NSAIDs, but without them, I would have intense swelling. I have been tested for RA and am negative, at least one year ago I was.
More so than a diagnosis I'm hoping for suggestions of relief to the pain.
I took Skelaxin before and i remember it being very weak as far as a muscle relaxer goes.. My chiro thinks the issue is the curve not being in my neck and my head pushing forward.. I think its strange that I got two totally different opinions.. My hubby thinks I should get a third.. This sucks.. I gotta go to work soon..
Hey i just went to the docter today regarding my horrible headaches which little does she know are from detox she gave me samples of mobic she said is a combination muscle relaxer for headaches and another med it really helped mine maybe ask your doc hope this helps luv ya ~~~~Chros
The neurologist has sent me to a pain management doctor, he has given me some meds for pain( I swear they don't work), my Motrin seems to work better.....also gave me a muscle relaxer too. I started physical therapy last week.....3 visits thus far.....and 3 more next week.....I really feel better when I leave the office....but, as the day goes on.....the pain starts building....I really feel he's working the problem area, and it's going to take more visits, to rid me of this pain.
You can always try a new Dr Or see if there is something else non-narcotic they can prescribe for the pain. Zanaflex is a good muscle relaxer. avisg tells me that Mobic is a good pain reliever. See what they say about these. It is true the body makes more pain to get the drugs. I am not sure if this is so for valium. It is for opiates. Ibuprofen 600s or 800s works for the pain too.
I haven't missed too many days and the one that lasted a while, I took fioricet and it was gone in no time. I was supposed to be on a muscle relaxer but I had a reaction and they never gave me a new one, figures. All of the issues I've been having are : loss of vision(more often now than before the mobic), headaches, dizziness(almost none since the mobic), swooshing in my ears(about the same).... poor balance- same. I think that's it...
All I can say is request some of the nuerontin from your doctor, a prescription strength pain pill, Ultram is non narcotic and works great, and also a muscle relaxer if they will. Mobic is also in my script list, it's a script strength anti-inflammatory, like Aleve, and works wonders, especially if you also have arthritis like me (at least that is confirmed by X-rays). I hope this helps and if you find out anything else, let me know!!!
Chamomile tea right before bed. The RLS drove me crazy and luckily for me I had a very low dose script for a muscle relaxer. Congrats on making the decision to take your life back and on your 2 days clean. In my opinion it's 10% physical and 90% mental. Keep thinking about how your life was before the pills and how wonderful it's going to be after. We are all here if you need support or encouragement. Stay strong, stay positive and God Bless....
The only things that really make sense to me are the Ms-Contin and the MSIR. As far as the Zanaflex goes, a muscle relaxer is usually a good thing, so that's understandable. With the amount of opiates you are prescribed, there should be no need for anything at bedtime for sleep because with all this stuff, it's amazing to me that you stayed awake long enough to type your post! And I am only half kidding there! Are all of these things prescribed by the same doctor?
So the latest accident was only months ago and I suffered daily horrific back and neck pain in and out of the doctor taking percocet and valium (as a mild muscle relaxer) everyday since Jan. percocet regularly since Oct of 06. In the army you dont see 1 doc you go to a clinic and get who is avaliable by the way. One visit I was accused of drug seeking, understandable but very frusterating. Tried several anti depressant which like the migraine meds I had sever side affects.
I also have prescription pain medication and a muscle relaxer to use when the over the counter stuff doesn't work. Sometimes heat packs also help - at least for a little while. I don't know what the strength of the naproxen is that your doctor prescribed, but I know that the over the counter medication Aleve also contains naproxen - again I don't know at what strength though.
I know that's not much, but might take some away. How about a muscle relaxer? I know there are some safe ones. I know it is hard to be in really bad pain when you are fighting addiction. I have relapsed MORE than once over pain getting so bad I couldn't stand it. Hang in there, and find something you can take that's not habit forming, PLEASE!!!
My current med list is Cymbalta 90mg a day lyrica 225mg 2x a day Ms-Contin 30mg 3x a day MSIR (instant release morphine) 15mg as need for BT Mobic 15mg once a day Zanaflex (tizanidine) 4mg 3x a Day Adderall XR 30mg Once a day BusPar 7.
He had me on 2 different narcotic pain killers as well as an anti-inflammatory drug and he also had me on a muscle relaxer as well as a benzodiazepine for sleep since i have what he called a sleep disorder. i had been on these medicines for 3 years almost to the day the trouble started.
and then my back is stuck in an arch for about an hour while I lean against a heating pad on the couch and wait for my muscle relaxer to kick in. I can hear my discs popping in or out of alignment when I start moving again (the noise you would hear if you "popped" your back, neck ,or even fingers). I am in Louisiana ,and our weather has been crazy lately....25 degrees one week and 50 the next. I have noticed that it is definitely more severe on nights that are colder.
