Flexeril and ibuprofen together

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril and ibuprofen together


Avatar n tn He assured me that my Bowels are are clear and that the Endo can cause the spasms and pain I am having in my rectum. I chose to go the route of BC pills, and also ha gave me a scip for Flexeril and pain meds. He wants me to take the BC pill for a month or so along with the other meds and he said hopefully I should start feeliong better in a few weeks.
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.
903710 tn?1248393412 feels like my eyes will explode from my head and my jaw hurts and then my teeth hurt. Am I nuts? I wake at night with both hands/arms numb, tingling, and in intense pain and it takes 10 to 30 minutes for it to stop enough to go back to sleep. I am exhausted, frustrated, and scared...I find myself crying at my desk by mid afternoon as the pain just gets worse... Is there anyone out there that understands or can give me some good advice..I have tried so many things it is unreal?
318928 tn?1248181016 For me, its annoying and aggravating. The problem is that I abused ibuprofen, tylenol, robitussin and the like when I was a teenage. I have to be very careful about the types of OTC remedies I buy. I have never took the recommended dose of anything. I am a true addict. THe affliction of severe pain is such a problem since I usually need 1000mg of ibuprofen to calm it so I can function and that disappoints me.

Avatar m tn Muscle spasms seems like it fits the best, the weird thing is that it happens so frequently with me, about 40% of the days in a year and those days are usually grouped together. 90% of the time it happens it's while I'm laying down (and thus, trying to go to sleep) and when it does happen I can stand or sit straight up to make the thumping go away, but once I lay down again it comes back. This has been going on for probably more than 7 years. Is this cause by muscle spasms? Is this curable?
298579 tn?1192250448 That's interesting, for sure. The tailbone, the vagina and the rectum are very close together. It makes sense that nerve damage to the tailbone area could also affect sexual functioning and might produce the "butt cramps" we experience. The other things I've read that realistically seem to be be associated with Proctalgia Fugax are Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Endometriosis.
1035252 tn?1427231433 Any magnesium tablet,alone or with a vitamin or other mineral,works for RLS as well. It can all be taken together(cold med,Hylands,and mag). And,yes,Valerian root and Melatonin work. Again,not 100% but they really help! The tea is good,too. Hot showers work as well as baths but it's just nice to sit so we talk about the baths a lot... Do not worry about this. Get on here and post. You'll get plenty of hand holding,just not in person.
Avatar n tn i'm feeling very low today. my husband and daughter went out for their weekly tuesday dinner together...it's nice. now it's just me (and my neurotic dog) and my thoughts...i feel like i'm truly going nuts. no doubt about it, the buprenex helps, but at this very low dose it is hardly touching the anxiety. i don't know what to do...i ordered more to arrive the 18th, which is the absolute earliest they would allow.
1331115 tn?1401672466 You guys really stick together, and that is WONDERFUL! I am glad you have some great support there. Give one of them a call if you get weak and thinking that a pill might help!! Keep us posted please. I'm cheering for ya!!!
211940 tn?1267884866 I can only lift my arms sideways up so far or straight up or behind me. My husband and I have to shower together because I can't shampoo my own hair even. Even combing or brushing is an effort. And so far they are searching for the answer to this one. They have taken x-rays to make sure nothing is broken again. But leaning more towards an arthritic condition or tendonitis I think. I don't know but I'm not so sure.
Avatar f tn I just finished another round of physical therapy where I met all of my goals so I was discharged, but I my left leg still constantly aches. I have tried Ibuprofen and Naproxen and Flexeril (in case is was spasm related) but they don't seem to work. If only I had a live-in massage therapist. The pain runs up the ourside of my leg. It is most intense in my lower leg. Ankle and thigh. My doctor won't prescribe anything.
Avatar f tn They include neck bending (touching chin to neck – hold exhale and relax) and shoulder rolls (touch shoulder blades together in a circular motion and then relax), to name a few. Optimal resistance-exercise results are usually obtained when lifting 60-80% of maximum lifting potential. However, if you are just starting, you should start at 40-50% of maximal capacity. You would benefit from an evaluation by a physical therapist who can prescribe you with an appropriate exercise routine.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried massage therapy, it helps but only for a short period.Then I have to go back to the massage therapist again and again, my insurance will not pay for that.
Avatar n tn I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried message therapy, it helps but only for a short period. And I have tried changing my pillows on my bed and sleeping in different positions and nothing seems to help for long term. What can I do?
Avatar f tn Went to an orthopedic and he did an mri and I suggested therapy and wearing a belt. He agreed and I Started therapy. The therapist would make my hip go out and one leg would be longer than the other and painful so I would go to the chiropractor to put it in. Changed orthopedics and he thought it was sciatic and I went to PT and also had my back in traction. He sent me to a pain doctor who injected pain killers and steroids in the sciatic joint.
Avatar f tn But one thing is the past few nights I have taken 800mg ibuprofen and 5mg flexeril to help with the restlessness. It works! Should I stick with ot or slowly taper it down to get use to a normal nights sleep? Ive tried the tea hot baths and melatonin etc. They put me to sleep then I'm wide awake at 3am. I also can't afford no sleep because I am a stay home mom of 3 year old twins. Any suggestions would help.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar f tn Also, please note that there is a major drug interaction between tramadol and cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril). Taken together can further increase the risk for seizures. Below is an article by Mayo Clinic Proceedings May 2010. It may help you and your physician make better choices in pain management. Please access it through http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2861975/ Please note: Hepatitis C is a serious liver disease that is contagious and can progress to chronic infection.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I really hope your situation gets better and that you get some relief. About taking the flexeril and the dilaudid together. Any time I have gone to the ER they have given me dilaudid and flexeril. I take a pain med with muscle relaxer every day as the disc herniations in my neck cause muscle spasms, which compound into straightening my neck which causes more muscle spasms and pain. Best of luck with your doctor's appt! I hope you get the help you need!
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar n tn I endured long strenuous physical therapy and im on neurontin,flexeril,lortab and ibuprofen do you have any ideas?????
Avatar f tn See if your doctor can write you 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. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
1207048 tn?1282177904 I have taken Tylenol (I avoid taking ibuprofen due to stomach issues) and I have an icy hot patch on. It is making it tolerable but I doubt I'll be getting many chores done today :-( Due to my DH's work schedule, I won't be able to see my neuro before my scheduled appointment next week. At that time I will talk to him about this muscle issue. In the past he has concentrated on my other issues. I'm wondering what the usual medicine for spastic muscles is.
Avatar f tn 60mg Baclofen a day, Flexeril or Zanaflex on top when needed, Tramadol or Vicodin (never together) 1000mg Ibuprofen. Then I don't move. Sorry you are a fellow sufferer but you are in good company!
748543 tn?1463449675 The average person swallows 2000 times a day, causing the upper and lower teeth to come together and push against the skull. People who have a poorly aligned bite or missing teeth can have related problems, such as frequent headaches or Sleep disorders, because their Jaw muscles must work harder to bring the teeth together, straining the surrounding muscles." a simple Google search for TMD would have provided this author with a wealth of informative sources regarding her subject.
Avatar f tn There is a headache powder that I take that works wonders most of the time and it has an anti inflammatory and tylenol and caffeine. Totally ok to take together. Now, I would do that for 20 days in a row or anything, but it's totally fine to see if it helps. Really, if it's that bad, a doc needs to see you anyway, right?
