Common Questions and Answers about Can i take percocet and flexeril


1415174 tn?1453246703 I had very bad side effects from Flexeril. Just on one dose I was speaking and the words coming out of my mouth was not what I meant to say. It made me extremely foggy too, to the point where I could not fuction. It took 3 days for the med to completely get out of my system. I will never take it again.
Avatar m tn I was told celebrex and flexeril was a no no by my ob and by the pediatrician. I was on it for several years and stopped it when I got pregnant and was told I could not resume taking it until after baby was weaned. Im not sure about the other meds. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Avatar f tn She had neck surgery about 5 months ago, and I feel she has become addicted to percocet. Two weeks ago, while drinking and I believe and OD of either percocet, flexeril or both, she had a severe car accident, broke her neck (which did not severe her spine) and her leg, and various bruises and bumps (the only reason she is in such good shape is BECAUSE she was wasted; but then again, the accident wouldn't have happened in the first place-chicken/egg syndrome).
Avatar f tn At home, the basic technique is to space out the amount your friend takes on a consistent manner until you take only at night, than half that amount at night, than every other night and then none. I would say he should space out the pills and try to cut down by 5 mg a day. See if his doctor can write him 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.
Avatar n tn My physcian was appaled when she called the drugstore to learn of this and has since ensured my scripts are clarified. I only get percocet and they do still exist. I am at the moment trying to not take any pain meds and am trying ultrasound therapy as I do not want my body to be ruined by the need for pain pills. I am sharing this as an information item to help anyone who may not be aware of the Endocdet problems.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed this for extreme violent muscle spasms. Dr said non narcotic non addictive. Well my experience with Dr and Percocet i no longer believe in their opinion. So experts can u give me truth. Thanks so much.
Avatar f tn Is Flexeril a addictive drug? I just got off of percocet and I don't want to get dependent on something else that may be addictive.
Avatar f tn I started taking them due to a sports injury and now I am struggling to stop. I have not taken more than 10mg in a day which I know is not a large amount. I am still worried about my withdrawals due to the amount of time I have been taking them. The big reason why I am afraid to stop is because of the withdrawals. Will my withdrawal be bad?
1466164 tn?1301205416 ive been on percocet since march,off and on, i am having a hard time getting off them and staying off them, right now i am having some weird side effects that are not listed like waking up stiff and swollen and really sore hot achy, then i take 2 i feel a little better then 4 hours later i take 2 again then i feel better, im up to taking 8 a day. i need help and advice, can i die? how can i get through the withdrawls without problems? I have tramadol and flexeril to help is that good?
Avatar m tn I have been taking about 30 mg of percocet a night for about 2 and a half months. Every now and then I would skip a night. Basically I take 4 7.5 pills between 4-10 pm. If I stop now, would it affect me? Should I taper off or just stop? Is 30 mg a lot or a little of it?
Avatar m tn Now, I'm out because someone stole some and I do not have enough to take myself off gradually...So I'm pretty sick. I've not told anyone, and I'm wondering if talking a half of one 2 times a day so 1 perc total today and one tomorrow will be enough , i'm sure i'll still deal with the worsening pain and stomach pain , but how sever is it on my body? I have heart palpataions every now and then, and today they are pretty noticable ....
Avatar m tn I ran out about 1 hour ago, and am so afraid I can't do it. I called ER and they said I would have to go to inpatient, but I don't have anyone to watch my son for more than the weekend. What would be my best solution to ease withdraws and not give myself a heart attack? I only have access to Flexeril.
Avatar n tn I actually sopped all together about 2 yrs ago....But now I am back...I basically take whatever I can get my hands on...sometimes I may get Vics other time Oxy's, Pirks, whatever I can get...I have been trying to stop, but the second I get the chills I cant take it...I actuallu stole Pirks off my mom one time when her Neck went out....This addiction is HORRIBLE....Anyway, I am tring to stop , buying these off the street is killing me, I am constantly broke and my LIVE - IN BF has NO clue.
Avatar f tn My pain Doc told me that I wouldn't have withdrawals being on the patch if I don't take the Percocet. It's hard for me to get through without the Percocet...for the pain and life but I have to do it. My appointment is 2 weeks away and I only have 10 Percocet left but plenty of Fentanyl. I have to get through. I'm tired of the lies and trying to get an early appointment, etc. Enough is enough. I can do this right??? Thank you again!!!
1802044 tn?1316007025 The worst part is there is this heavy cloudiness/dizzy feeling in my head that makes me feel like I could die at any moment, and my mind is racing constantly, I feel very anxious. Should I take a pill to alleviate these symptoms or will that just put me back at day one of my withdrawl? I gave my medication to my parents to control my doses if I should need to take one. I don't know if I should suck this up and just deal with it or take a pill to calm myself.
Avatar f tn Thus, it is not easy, but it gets better and better over time and you can look forward to a drug free healthy energetic you in the future. When you take opiates for a long time like you have, your body's physiology has been altered. Your central nervous system has created a multitude of opioid receptors that all are screaming for endorphins (opiates) to fill them, but your body has now forgotten how to make them by itself.
539990 tn?1219478355 I am on day 2 0f percocet 80 -100 mgs a day for a month. Can I take xanax for anxiety and soma for the muscle pains at the same time?
1529480 tn?1291880734 Hi, I have been exactly where you are! My pain doctor would not listen either. Every time I saw him I would complain that the morphine made me feel "out of it" and that I did not like it. He kept insisting that i take it and then proceeded to up the dosage! Six weeks later I woke up in the ICU hallucinating and suffering from kidney failure! I don't remember how I got there, in fact, I don't remember the whole month of February(2010), and now I suffer from short term memory loss.
Avatar f tn For 13 years I have used a durogesic patch and percocet together with lower to stronger strengths at the present. For 8 years I have used a durogesic 75mcg patch changing it every 48 hrs.- due to BREAK THROUGH PAIN. Along with the patch I use Percocet 7.5/325 mg 4 tablets a day. Plus, through the years I have changed other medications but at the present I also use: Neurontin 300mg 3 capsules 4 times a day Flexeril 10 mg as needed (up to 3 per day) Valium 5mg q 6 hrs.
Avatar n tn I too am not chasing a high. I miss my natural highs and it's eating me up. I don't know how much longer I can hold on. I'm so depressed and feel so helpless.
Avatar f tn When I had the Rx filled my Pharmacist said I could not take the Flexeril and Lexapro with the Cymbalta as it can cause some kind of syndrome that can be fatal. So I stopped both. A week later I saw my Pain Management/Orthopedic Surgeon and they said they were taking me off Percocet. I thought ok I don't want to be on all these drugs anymore so ok. BAD BAD BAD decision.
Avatar n tn The second part is, whenever I do get them- I feel great when I take them, I am never sick feeling never anything but healthy and happy but no matter if I take them for 2 days or 2 weeks, when I am out of them, I get uncontrollably crabby, emotional, chills, sweats, basic flu symptoms, is this in my head or becasue my body has been use to them in the past, even now just taking them for a normal amount of time it could cause withdrawls.
Avatar f tn He had a lot of medical problems. So began the journey with oxy, hydrocodone and Percocet. I believe he is addicted. How can he detox off this at home?
Avatar f tn It didn't help at all, and it actually made me more anxious, and I didn't sleep at all on night 5. I did take an Ambien, and it did nothing for me. I've smoked in the past, and it made me relaxed, but it really turned me off of it. Each day got progressively better from there. At the start of this, I didn't clean my house of leftovers from the taper. This was a mistake. Because on day 9, feeling NO w/d - I thought... hmm, my back kinda hurts, wouldn't a vicodin clear that right up?
Avatar n tn Question for the experts: I've been taking about 6 Percocet 7.5's &/or Hydrocodone 7.5-10mg 5x's a day for 4 months now for chronic pain. I'm all out & can't get any filled till 3-3 & would like to try my Neurontin 600mg tid to help with the opiate w/d symptoms. I can go get my Rx for Neurontin this am & only have 1 7.5 Percocet left. Planning to take 1/2 now & 1/2 at 10am. After that I plan on using Neurontin 600mg 3-4 x's daily for w/d till I can refill the other on 3-3.
395684 tn?1216001324 The narcotics are not working, I am still in pain, no one will help and I can't take much more. I lost my job because of missing so much, I need to get healthy so I can get to work. They have given me every kind of medication you can think of, such as the following : amytripiline, neurontin, lyrica, flexeril, valium, percocet, vicodin, oxycontin, prednisone, cymbalta, celebrex, Ibuprophen 800 mg, Motrin 800 mg, naprosyn, imitrex, skelaxin, soma, toradol, tylenol w/codeine.
395684 tn?1216001324 The narcotics are not working, I am still in pain, no one will help and I can't take much more, I get up every day and wish that I didn't, there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel and I am not sure how much more I can take, please help me if you can. I have even went to the Cleveland Clinic which is one of the three top ranked hospitals in the United States, they didn't help at all. I lost my job because of missing so much, I need to get healthy so I can get to work.
Avatar f tn Fentanyl withdrawal is not fun. So I would say go slow. How much Percocet do you take? You may want to keep that to help you as you lessen the fentanyl. Then when fentanyl is finally done, you can do what is needed wor the Percocet. Do you know when you next surgery will be?
1324871 tn?1288985306 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 .
Avatar f tn I have had 4 surgeries in 2 years and each time I come off the Percocet it seems worst . I am winging off now and it isn't fun . I know if I do it cold turkey I will be done in 5 days. I just don't have it in me this time . I have another Friend who has battled for 3 years coming off Suboxone and he is down to a crumb and cant seem to get past it. He even had a implant put in him if he took opioids he would get ill.
