Can you take flexeril and valium together

Common Questions and Answers about Can you take flexeril and valium together


1207048 tn?1282177904 I was taking the high dose of Valium before I switched to Zanaflex. According to my doc, you can use the Zanaflex on a normal basis, and then compensate any pain with the Valium, something I haven't tried yet. Stretching actually does wonders for the leg spasticity as well. I'm not talking about the kind of stretching you do for a warm up, this kind of stretching brings tears to you eyes at times. Stretching helps especially if you don't have any meds for it.
Avatar m tn there is something you can get OTC that is compairable to valuim..i say be carefull with the trams, thats another prob, are they given to you by doc? if so takin them a few days might not hurt, however when detoxing cross addiction can happen easy..the blood presurre meds, is that because you have underlying health issues?
Avatar f tn You have absolutely no choice to go with a slow tapering. You can go quicker than the table I showed to you, this is up to you and your doc based on how you are doing thru the withdrawal. I repeat just to make sure you understand you simply can't go off cold turkey after such high dose chronic use of benzodiazepines. It is EXTREMELY dangerous. Please work with you doctor for a safe cross-tapering method.
Avatar f tn I wanted to post something on the topic as I am a Chronic Pain patient who has become pregnant. I'm currently in my 23rd week of the pregnancy and am having trouble finding a Pain Management Provider who will see a pregnant woman, or a high-risk OB who will treat Chronic Pain. I have been told that Maternal-Fetal Medicine Speicalists will provide pain relief for pregnant chronic pain patients, however I been told that mine will not.
Avatar f tn You can use epsom salt baths and take melatonin for sleep.Some people take valerian.If you can get through the first week or so you are well on your way.The hard part is after the withdrawals to stay away from these drugs altogether.If you want the clean life for yourself and your family more than you want the drug,you will win the battle and stay a winner.Just decide that this stuff has no place in your new life and keep posting for we will help you along.

217229 tn?1192766004 My Rheumatologist / Internist has prescribed Lyrica and Cymbalta together. Now - with that in mind - I need to tell you that I finished Treatment for Hepatitis C, with Sustained Virologic Response (what is considered a cure) - with Interferon and Ribavirin --- I finished it last year in March/February. But have had pain for the last 3 years, which I associated with Hepatitis C, etc. I ALSO HAVE ADVERSE REACTIONS TO MEDICATIONS and have ADHD.
209656 tn?1272300665 I still take a minumal of the Valium and .5mg at night on the Klonopin for those stupid panic attacks..which whe talked much about already - lol Okay so where do I get the Clonodine?
5082295 tn?1371254511 You should start to see some relief within an hour. If it said you can take 2-4, take the 4. You need the extra vitamins and minerals during wds. Your body is deficient . Maybe try a multivitamin too. Bananas helped my legs some during wds. Can you get in a nice hot bath and try to relax for a bit? It can do wonders! Good luck to you!
544292 tn?1268886268 And Like Nancy in my crazy red shoulder padded double breasted BLAZER, I JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS!!! ... and now I'll rest, try and let some of the bad energy of the pain and this last week go so I can work all weekend and next week too. One day at a time. I was pretty sure last night when I got home and was so tired and disoriented that today might be like this. It is worth it.No matter what. Getting off this stuff will save me a HUGE amount of pain in the future. I liked waking up happy!
Avatar f tn What were you taking before you quit? How much a day of what drug? What's your plans for quitting? What aftercare have you planned or considered?
Avatar n tn the flexeril will help with that..and lots of hot baths. And of course you will need the immodium too! Take it as soon as you first get a tummy ache..before you start having bathroom problems. Keep posting so we can help you as much as possible. I have been where you are..I was taking about 200mg of hydro. I tried c/t and couldnt hang so I went the sub route. However, if you set your mind to can be done. I also did not have this forum at the time and knowledge of detox.
356518 tn?1322267242 I know how difficult it is to take care of small children and be in pain and sometime wonder how you can care for them when you feel like you cant even take care of yourself because the pain takes over. I have two girls that are now 7 and 8 years old and they keep me running. There are days I cant do the things I want to with them and they do understand to a point but I always feel guilty and feel like I am letting them down.
Avatar m tn Flexeril and soma are both muscle relaxers....doesn't seem as if teking both each day would be of any benefit...flexeril is the safer of the two as far as addiction....there are some warnings posted as far as anti-depressents and some of the aminos...I was on lexapro (anti-depressent) during detox...nuerontin, I also take flexeril rarely but it can help you sleep..I followed the recipe without difficulty...amino acids are naturally occurring/some our body makes and some we get from foods we eat.
Avatar n tn Yeah My girlfriend had complications after a hernia surgery and she was put on this stuff. She doesn't take or enjoy pills at all and the doctor was very careful with this stuff. She was on for a few weeks and then they slowly tapered her off because as stated above it can cause seizures if you abrubtly stop. it didn't even help her pain either but that is not really relevant. It doesn't seem like much is known about this stuff so i would be careful.
Avatar f tn It is pretty cheap (10 bucks a day) and all you have to do is show up at the clinic and in five minutes you will have dosed and you can leave. It is easier than going cold turkey, and you can ease your way into sobriety. BMAC is right, do not stay on methadone for longer than two months. Then you will be addicted. To those who don't think they can do this on their own, please consider methadone as an option.

Avatar n tn I have taken muscle relaxers Flexeril, and in the past I had Xanax and I hate putting things in my body, but as I am sure you can understand I get desperate. I am also taking Tylenol, Aspirin etc…and am really watching my dosage but it gets hard to control sometimes (controlling the dosages taking a few extra a day than the recommended amount) I know that a lot of things can have adverse reaction both supplements and prescription.
420469 tn?1217650963 My doc told me that when I get tired, I will get more of those twitches. I have gotten them in my lip, and I could see it in the mirror. BEWARE! I have to say it is the most annoying in the eye. What do you think? Anyway, the only suggestion I have is get some sleep. If you are like me, that is easier said than done. Hey, it could be worse. It isn't painful, is it?
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Avatar m tn So i just got back from ht ER I know nobody on here is a doctor and all the free asking doctor board's take weeks to get back to you. Anyway I am already on Valium (for years) and Lamitctal However the ER doc prescribe oxycodone, flexeril, and for some reason ativan? Which I kept telling them i don't understand since i am already on 20mg valiums?
Avatar n tn For the past year, I have been experiencing burning and stinging in my vulva (which is NOT made worse by peeing), which comes and goes but can last for over a month and is extremely uncomfortable. The area looks normal, and there is no unusual discharge. The last time I had these symptoms was in March - they came on suddenly with a stinging sensation, and lasted for 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn And neither is the other but it has strong effects like Valium only stronger. If you have medication left over and you think you can get through the psychological thing then I would start reducing the dosage. Don't go cold turkey. You can access a physician that treats people who have got hooked by no means themselves, adrug addict is a different story they need treatment which you probably don't. You to could go back to your original physician and explain what's happened.

198154 tn?1337790865 So what are your options then, assuming that you are working closely with a doctor, ideally a psychiatrist, there are lots of ways you can go. Some require a prescription and some do not. I will list/describe them in no particular order and please, feel free to add your own: 1.Trazodone(Desyrel)-Traz is an old school antidepressant. It is rather mild in its effects and nowadays it is rx'ed more for insomnia than for depression.
1035252 tn?1427231433 thank you so much! Can you take the 5HTP, L-taurine, Valerian root, and L-theanine at the same time? it seems like an overload, so if I had to pick and choose which ones to take, which would you guys recommend? Sorry again I know i"m bein a pain but since we ARE getting our new house, I have a limited amount of $$ to spend on this (hoping to spend $50 or less - I know that's probably unrealistic, lol) so I would like to know which ones are the most effective..alone or in conjunction.
544292 tn?1268886268 Understanding is essential! You can do this. And yes. Eventually you will heal!
