Cyclobenzaprine opiate

Common Questions and Answers about Cyclobenzaprine opiate


Avatar m tn 's who prescribe it, do it becuse they belive it not addicting like a opiate based drug. I dont know if Tram is opaite based myself. I am currently in remission of abusing my oxy for chronic pain. I got into this bad habit of snorting them and taking too many and running out early of course. I started my recent refill off correctly this time. Im taking oraly and only as directed and am doing quit well.Great pain coverage and my cravings arnt to bad.
1337425 tn?1278177587 My son is trying to get me to switch over to taking Tramadol, and insists that it's non-narcotic. He's not a kid, he's 32 years old, and is dead set against me using any type of opiate pain killer. I'm 12 days clean cold turkey from 210 mg oxycontin and 40 mg percocet per day. Can anyone answer this question for me so that I can show him?
1322872 tn?1275105462 Hi everyone of my fellow opiate strugglers, My husband and I both have become addicts to any kind of narcotic painkillers that we can get ahold of... Sad to say that it all started with me and my rx's. I was given several prescriptions over the years for vicodin or perc's. I used to be able to take just one 5/500 vic and it would mess me up for a few hours... Now I can take 6 of them at a time and I literally feel nothing but nauseous from all the Tylenol in them.
Avatar n tn - each are opiates. Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer and if often ordered with - one - opiate. Unless instructed to do so by my physician I would not take the three meds together. Bad idea! Hope this helps.
1686743 tn?1306009051 o) To some degree I think an opiate is an opiate is an opiate. In my case hydrocodone had worked best for my particular pain, even better then the bigger opiates. I know that makes little sense other then the explanation that everyone is different and every pain region responds to differently to different meds. When I developed a new source of chronic pain (my huge lumbar/abd mesh failed), hydrocodone did not touch that pain....
1155483 tn?1262436247 2 months ago I requested to drop to the 10mg Oxycontin. I also have been taking Meloxicam and Cyclobenzaprine PRN. I asked my GP, who I have been seeing since early childhood and who I trust completely in medical matters, to attempt a Non-narcotic treatment plan. He took me off the meloxicam and put me on Toradol (Ketorolac) 10mg 3xDaily. Now, I have researched a bit about the drug, checking the insert and also several websites, such as Drugs.
597547 tn?1251040364 ) and i have about 10 cyclobenzaprine 10 mg muscle relaxers.. (m 751 imprint code) I'm going to try taking a fourth of a sub after i wait as long as i can with nothing, and try to space them out taking a quarter of a sub each time... does anyone know if u can take the cyclobenzaprine with the sub?? also, regardless of the sub, do u thank that they muscle relaxer will help with withdraws??
199177 tn?1490502134 Some facts on tramadol its highly addicting .,Its a synthetic opiate and is not to be used by people who have addiction issues .It is also a double whammy because not only does it work for pain but it also works as an ssri anti depressant . If you abuse it and take more then the max dose you are putting your risk of seizures .The wd coming off this drug is far worse then any other drug I have ever taken. There are hundereds on this board that have been addicted to tramadol .
Avatar f tn Tramadol is used to relieve moderate to moderately severe pain. It is in the class of opiate agonists and works similarly to how morphine and codeine change the body feels the pain. It is important to take it as directed because overdose can cause acute liver failure. From the posted information, I derived that your pain is probably from kidney stones. Passing kidney stones can be extremely painful. It is important to hydrate as much as possible to help flush them out.
Avatar f tn I would doubt that any opiate would last a week so this patch is in all likelihood not an opiate which if I understand correctly would be a good thing for you.. According to your mid May post on the Addiction Forum you have struggled seriously with opiates in the past and continue to have strong cravings. You stated you were taking GHB... very dangerous and I do believe it is illegal. I am not street drug literate.
Avatar n tn Up until recently, I was taking 1 Tylenol #3 at bedtime which helped to lessen the nighttime pain, and in another way, helped to ease the morning pain as well. My new doctor (I recently switched) doesn't believe in long term opiate painkillers, and took me off the Tylenol #3.
Avatar m tn They are not a good combination with opiates, and since you are tapering, you are still on opiates. Which one are you taking, flexerol (cyclobenzaprine)? They do work, and make you drowsy as well. That's also why they can be addicting! Plus they can cause respiratory depression including failure, both voluntary and involuntary when taken with opiates, so be careful.
Avatar m tn Oxycodone seems appropriate if you are not on another short acting opiate. I hope you'll let us know the outcome. Please keep in touch.
Avatar m tn Is the only WD symptoms u are having the leg pain? Restless legs are associated with opiate withdrawal..I di not have it but many do...I have read all kinds of therapies to help with say neuropathic pain...r u a diabetic?
Avatar f tn has me on are wayyy to potent for me. I am told these are not that bad. I was on cyclobenzaprine. One 10mg tab, within half hour I could sleep for 24. I have already chekced with my pharmacy although they are safe to take with what I take for perscriptions. Anyone here that has experienced these? Also, will they AT ALL help with my w/d's??? Thanks all in advance!
Avatar f tn Told pain management I refused opiate treatment. I will not go back on the evil drug. If you need a support person I'm here and will listen and help in any way.
Avatar f tn approach and prescribe - for example - benzos to alleviate the anxiety that is common with opiate withdrawals, but caution must be exercised to prevent trading one addiction for another (or worse yet, simply adding a new one). From what others have said, the anti-anxiety medication you were prescribed seems to be on the safer side, and with any luck, you won't need it for long.
Avatar n tn What's so bad about Tramadol is that it's an opiate. Addicts stear clear of opiates,no matter how weak,because they WILL awaken the sleeping monster. Many people have a difficult time withdrawing because Tram also contains an antidepressant. If you increase your Tram dosage you can experience seizures. I think you know all this though... Was the Tramadol prescribed for you? V.
Avatar n tn •Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), •Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and other tricyclic compounds (e.g., cyclobenzaprine, promethazine, etc.), or •Other opioids. Administration of tramadol may enhance the seizure risk in patients taking: •MAO inhibitors (see also WARNINGS - Use with MAO Inhibitors), •Neuroleptics, or •Other drugs that reduce the seizure threshold.
1985289 tn?1328583194 Hun any opiate or semi synethic opiate will just continue to drag out your detox. You did a nice, long slow taper. At some point you will have to totally detox. What withdrawal symptoms are you experiencing now? Yes there will be rebound pain when you detox. It will take a month or two to re-evaluate your pain. Don't let the fear take over, just treat your symptoms. Take it one day at a time. Stay hydrated, eat light foods, keep your mind and body busy. Use immodium.

Avatar n tn When I came off of sub after about 7 weeks or so (taking 8-12 mgs, and then weaning down to 4mgs for a couple days) my withdrawal started bad on day 2 (skin was crawling, couldn't think straight, plus all the other opiate wd symptoms), while I was at work. I faked a flu and took flexerils/cyclobenzaprine to keep myself asleep for 3 days and then on the 4th day I was completely fine.
1415174 tn?1453246703 But only your physician can give this advice. Flexeril is not an opiate but if you have been taking it regularly you may experience some withdrawal like symptoms. Your body will "look" for this drug... when it doesn't find it it reacts. According to what I have read it's called the "Discontinuation Syndrome." Symptoms include, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, sweats, insomnia, malaise, and a few others.

Avatar f tn Why did you want trammodol instead. A opiate is a opiate if you were addicted to hydro you will be to tram there is no safe way. Not for an addict.
3170462 tn?1344721152 Like many of you with an opiate addiction, I began taking hydros for legitimate pain. My two sources of pain are endometriosis and chronic back pain due to my left leg being a touch shorter than the right. The endo is being treated with surgery in the next month or so. However, unless I go to Japan and get one of those leg stretching surgeries or begin to stack my stilettos, the back pain is for life. I'm aware that there are non-narcotic options available to minimize this pain.
Avatar n tn As far as the Tramadol, most people don't understand that although it acts on your opiate receptors the same way as Vicodin, or any opiate does, it is a partial antagonist/agonist. This is the reason many doctors prefer it in place of Vicodin or other agonists. Most opiate medications are full-agonists. They bind strongly to receptors and therefore provide pain relief and a side-effect of euphoria.
Avatar m tn You need better pain control, that's for sure. I take Lyrica, it is not an opiate, and it is very good for overall pain and discomforts. I know, that's just treating symptoms, but you DO have symptoms that need proper addressing. And by the way, a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, while not the primary reason for what's wrong, is within the Social Security Disability parameters.
1349329 tn?1276988802 There's only one thing that will get rid of WDs, a drug that attaches to the same brain receptors as an opiate. You will read many assurances that tram has a very low strength opiate like affect. But the metabolites (what your liver changes tram into) may be 200 times stronger. I've heard nothing but bad stuff about this drug. Even before I quit taking narcotic pain pills I told my doc, "NO MORE TRAMADOL".
Avatar f tn Just being able to talk to other people who have gone threw it before gives you hope! The opiate withdrawal Day three is the worst then everyday will get better.You only have to do it once!
