Flexeril overdose amount

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril overdose amount


Avatar f tn A Dr. just suggested I try Savella---is it not to be taken concurrently with Cymbalta? And she was a little "pissy" because I insisted I had been taking and needed to take Flexeril 10mg. 2 tabs 3 times a day instead of just one 3 times daily as "recommended" in the PDR. I take 2 Tramadol 3 times a day also and 2 Soma @ bedtime. She didn't want me to overdose. Even these meds don't take away the pain like I wish they did.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Opioid-induced hyperalgesia is a condition where the increased use of opiates, like Oxycontin and hydrocodone, heightens one's sensitivity to discomfort and reduces their tolerance for pain. Essentially, people will increase the amount of painkillers they are taking as their discomfort continues to escalate, but the added medication can actually make their pain worse.
Avatar f tn can i take my oxycotin 60 mg, flexeril 10mg, torodal 30mg, and my ambien 10mg at the same time?
Avatar f tn So I would do more and more, now percs don't really get my high unless I do a big amount, so I started taking OxyContin.. At first only 20mg a day.. Now I'm at 2 80mgs a day. I am so sick if I don't have anything, I know there is people out there who take a lot more then I do in a day, but that doesn't change my addiction. Now because I am so use to doing these pills, I don't know how to live life without them, and I am still young I am only 18.

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. Clonidine is very helpful for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
715482 tn?1286836849 45, its like thats the the amount of time my body can hold itself asleep...and today i was so tired i took 2 3mg melatonins at 5 and i was trying to sleep till 7:30 and gave up, the stuff didnt even make me tires and the RLS makes me toss and turn all night and you cant get confortable...when does it start to end and go back to normal...

1453990 tn?1329235026 It works directly on spasticity, it is a skeletal muscle relaxant (High Test Flexeril) and in my case, has some anti-seizure properties that may help with the myoclonic activity.
233616 tn?1312790796 answering your ??? from the mental attitude thread: yes, thank you! Grade 1 stage 3/4, some stetosis/fibrosis/bridging and spleen also enlarged, I've noticed it doesn't allieviate much of the left side liver pain. (the part they didn't biopsy even though that's where all my pain is). It seems to come and go on it's own umpteen times a day, with only mild relief from Ultram. Ultram only mildly helps my bent spinal cord and 4 ruptured disc injury as well.
1315236 tn?1273993425 It does hold a high level of deaths by overdose. Problem with F is that because it is absorbed in the blood, by way of the skin patch, folks get impatient and slap a couplke more on, way before it's called for. Then they perhaps take a hot shower, heating pad or the like, and by doing this, send a super high level into the blood stream, thus causing Cardiac Arrest. Depression is another reason doctors will sometimes start their patients on a lower dose. This is a super powerful pain killer.
Avatar m tn I would make it very clear that the opioid component of the medication is not sufficient at reducing your pain and explain that you can't take more than one hydrocodone as you will overdose on the tylenol. Let me know what your doctor says. If she is still giving you the runaround, ask to be referred to pain management.
Avatar n tn ranging from percocet, vicodin, skelaxin, flexeril, methadone, valium, xanax etc. My problem is with the narcs. I seemed to have kicked the methadone problem with the help of percs and vics. My problem has consisted of anywhere from 8-15 oxycodone's or hydrocodone's per day. Now I have 18 vicodin left and I'm trying to figure out how to do this without going thru the cold sweats, diarrhea, RLS, etc.
382594 tn?1266614213 WICHITA, Kansas (May 23) -- She found her husband on their bed in a pool of his own vomit, dead from an accidental overdose of drugs he received from an online pharmacy. Every night before her husband went to bed, he would open a prescription bottle of the muscle relaxant Soma and swallow the eight or nine pills it took for him to fall asleep, said the woman. She spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity because she wants to protect her husband's identity and not embarrass his family.
1331804 tn?1336870958 no Percocet and see how it went? There was no risk in overdose as they take your total amount of opiate intake per day which was 95mg....So.....that would have been just 60mg per day to start..... Well...whatever you all decide....that's the best as I'm certainly not a Dr. but I've been at this over 10 years and my best friend is a PM Dr.... Good luck...
Avatar n tn I don't remember what caused them but I remember everyone warning me about my daughter and the amount she was taking being dangerous if she ran out or quit on her own, because of seisures. To try and shorten this, my niece has been having seisures for the last month. Yesterday had to be rushed to hospital by ambulance for horrible seisure. She had total of 5 yesterday, 7 today. To beat all the hospital only kept her overnight.
Avatar m tn at 67 yrs. old that amount of acetaminophen cannot be good for you!!! So many pills and all the crap that is in them are going thru liver and kidneys and you and something better change soon and you had better demand that it does. Do Not Drink the legal Drug (that kills etc but no script necessary!) Serious --you won't notice and it will creep up on you and kill you---maybe in your sleep but probably choking on you know what. If you are running out??IS it because of pain?Or?
Avatar f tn The main thing is to NOT double or change the Dr.s prescription like you did with the Opana. You can possibly overdose, die, or have the things I listed before which is to get flagged by your Dr. for abuse. So...I hope that you will give this medicine a proper amount of time. Another red flag for a Dr. is if you only take a medicine for a few days and say it's not working and want to switch. As I wrote before...each new medicine needs to be tirated up in dosage by the Dr.
Avatar f tn It all started out with two tiny 10 mg hydrocodone and now has progressed to black tar heroin. I am in the grips of addiction and have no idea how I can get out of this prison. From the outside, many would think my life is normal, lovely even. But it is anything but. I am a mother of 3 with a 3 bedroom house and a $50,000 shiny black suv that I pay for myself.
Avatar n tn The issue is is that she will self adjust her pain meds, for instance, she will overdo her daily amount for a while and then have to cut down so she has enough until refills. I guess my questions are: 1. do you self adjust your pain meds often? and if so, by how often and how much? 2. does your spouse/significant other get involved with your pain meds meaning does he/she have access and monitor them to make sure they are not low?
Avatar m tn Up until 5 years ago, I was on lithium for bipolar disorder (I was diagnosed in 2000), and had a very bad overdose experience in April 2008. I was immediately taken off of the drug and supplanted with another (Seroquel). This all may be purely coincidental.
544292 tn?1268886268 Getting off this stuff will save me a HUGE amount of pain in the future. I liked waking up happy! It reminded me of how I used to wake up pre-Tramadol. More water, lots of vitamins, ice and rest. Progress and regression. It's all part of the game. You can't fool Mother Nature. And I'm IGNORING the text message that said,"Let me know if you change your mind and I'll bring you something." Drugs. Pushers. They think they are helping. No more.
Avatar n tn Stopping methadone at 60mg is dangerous and very hard on your body. If you don't have anything you can take today, get some aleve, it's naproxen just not in the amount that a perscription would be, so take however many aleve add up to anywhere from 250mg to 500 mg depending on how your body responds to naproxen. ( if each aleve is 100 mg taking 5 is the same exact thing as taking a 500mg naproxen.
522415 tn?1242941355 I was afraid to overdose so I just suffered. Then a friend of mine told me that his wife is also on them and she takes two at a time which helps. So that is what I did. It did help. I told my doc & he said no that is to much and then switched me to morphine. Just tell the doc what you are taking is not doing a thing. See what he says.
Avatar n tn My best advice is to taper about 1/4 the original dosage amount each week. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO CONSULT A CERTIFIED PHYSICIAN ABOUT YOUR TAPERING, SO YOU WILL NOT BE UNCOMFORTABLE. Everyone is different, but at a 1.5 mg dose, tapering should be very comfortable for you. The only reason you should have problems is if you were abusing the drug, which from what I understand you were not. Good luck, but like I said the best thing for you to do is consult a physician.
Avatar n tn However I am still abusing the fioricet. I take from 6-8 a day so I am pretty close to your amount. I have been through detox a few times where they gave me phenobarbital for the withdrawal. I have found the hardest part of withdrawal has been the headaches and extreme anxiety. The last time I withdrew I was able to taper by taking 1 instead of 2 pills at a time. My doctor gave me ativan for the anxiety which did help.
Avatar n tn i think anything i say to my doc will fall on deaf ears and if anything he will cut me off, which would be devistating, i still depend on that month supply and hardly any doctors will presribe Soma anymore, and i cant stand flexeril just makes me fall asleep. i guess i need to keep looking for another doctor.
Avatar n tn During this past year, my daughter was using OC's, snorting heroin and then even started injecting. She almost died once of an overdose; benzo.'s and heroin. I thought that would scare her, but she did try it again and found that she couldn't stop. She is now going to a meth. clinic; she is at 75 mg., but I am so afraid of her not being able to get off.
Avatar n tn i take on a huge amount of pressure. all of my siblings got into ivy league schools and i have to look at schools that will take me. not only in academics but on the sport field. all of my siblings have been captains of there sport. and that so far is the only goal i have been able to complete for my family. i want to get help for this but it would crush my family and make others look down at them for something i did.
Avatar n tn **** that, I'm stronger than that. I feel like if I put half the amount of effort doing good things with my life than i did chasing pills I would probably be a millionaire. I will be praying for eacha nd everyone of you, Just know you're not the only one going through this hell on earth vicious cycle, That helps me to know.
Avatar n tn Thank so much for responding--There is a certain amount of relief that it is all out in the open--Somehow I always knew if I continued this insanity that this day would come--I have never seen him so ANGRY! I'm crying so hard I can barely type. I have mentioned in previous threads that he has no idea about this disease and the insanity it brings! He thinks its just a matter of willpower and just stop! Oh yes and he said that it was MY PROBLEM and I had better fix it!
