Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril with advil


Avatar f tn I decided to come off the med and as always I tapered down, I went from 10mg to 5mg with no issues. I had few very mild headaches that were easily resolved with Advil. I stayed at the 5mg for 3 weeks then went to 2.5mg for 3 weeks and jumped off with no issues.

Avatar m tn My daughter seems to get worsening symptoms if she takes anything stronger then Advil. Dr. gave her some Tylenol w/ codeine to try and help her pain but she says she starts getting bad pains in her back, chest, jaw, when she takes this. This also happened when she was given medication for migraines. I know mostly everyone has neck pain, but Holly is complaining that it hurts to even touch her neck, do others have this issue. Thanks again for the info and help!
Avatar f tn Since being dx'd with Fibromyalgia or CFS/ME, what steps do you take to deal with your pain and what medications are you taking to treat your symptoms? What would you say your daily pan level is (how you feel most days on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the lowest and 10 the most severe pain?) I am on Lyrica, Ultram, Sertraline, Detro, Estracel for Fibro, Menopause and Neuropathy. At night I take Trazadone and Xanax so that I can sleep, otherwise the RLS/PLMD would keep me up all night.
Avatar m tn I use Zanaflex instead of Flexeril. It seems to not make me as groggy. Just a thought. Advil or Ibuprofen, along with the muscle relaxer, works as well as opiates for me. I don't have any knowledge on Lyrica.
Avatar n tn Had a few drinks... (never had a problem with drinking)... took some advil with me and 1 2mg xanax.... came home with all of my advil and 2mg of xanax.... The only time I thought about the devil pills was when I didn't have the energy to walk the strip...but I powered through it. I am not sure about the "intense" desire to relapse...that was suppposed to come in week three.... well... week three is up for me tomorrow and I have had no desire.... If you like HipHop....
Avatar f tn I have been off work this past week so to deal with pain I take several soaks a day in my jacuzzi bathtub with Dr. Teals Epson salt with eucalyptus (it's great), lidocaine patches, massage heating pad, 12 Advil Liqua gels (max safe dosage) and Flexeril. However when I return to work before the day is up the pain is excruciating and at the age of 50 I'm no where near ready to retire financially!
537974 tn?1213748515 I has nothing to do with stress or post nasal drip or sinuses. It may have something to do with food allergies and intolerances. Just a guess but that is all I have right now to work with.
Avatar m tn Anyone know if flexeril will help with the rls at night.....I'm heading on day six clean...but these cramps and lack of sleep is killing me..
Avatar n tn Hi, It is not advisable to take Cortizone (Cortisone) without doctor's advice. Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) along with anti-inflammatory analgesic (Ibuprofen) will help in releaving your symptoms. I would suggest that you should go ahead with your appointment with the doctor.
Avatar f tn You never know if you will have a reaction to a medication and if it was not prescribed to you and you received it from someone else that person could potentially be in trouble with the law. I do not believe Flexeril is addictive. But, please call your doctor instead. That's just my two cents! WTG for being clean from vicodin for 3 weeks!!! AWESOME!!! Keep staying strong hun!!!! You know, Ibuprofen or naproxin works great too and you can get them over the counter. Good luck!!!
Avatar n tn My son also has never c/o radiating pain,numbness, or tingling in any extremity He has played no sports for a month with little improvement (flexeril helps him sleep) He is frustrated bored, and wants only to know what is wrong with him. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn I have never had any problem with biting down or TMJ. He prescribed flexeril and told me to take advil. How much longer will the pain last? What is going on with me? I can't focus on work nor can I think clearly because I have so much pressure in my head.

Avatar n tn I have had chronic rhomboid muscle pain on the right side for 10 years, and have seen numerous MD's(MRI with no significant problem found), Chiropractors (Adjustments & pressure point message), Physical Therapists (waste of money) and a Neurologist that is currently performing acupuncture. I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night.
1460652 tn?1340252330 i was hit on the driver side door.the er sent me home with flexeril, but i cant take it because it gives me heart palpitations.my back spasms from my left shoulder blade down the back of my rib cage on my left side when i move.i cant sleep and it feels like someone is stabbing me when i take a deep breath.ive tried advil, it helps a little.ive never had a back problem before.how long should i expect it to last?is there anything besides rest and using a heating pad that i should be doing?
4374421 tn?1379880751 My guess is the muscle spasm. A disc injury usually has some leg or arm pain associated with it. That's good news! Bad news is that spasms aren't fun at all! Get a muscle relaxer into your system and just chillax for a few days and you should be good to go. Motrin, Advil, etc. should do the trick. Stronger prescription muscle relaxers like valium, flexeril, soma, etc. can be used if your not better after a few days. See your doctor if your not better in like 5 days or so.
1943759 tn?1324048851 He says it feels like a pintched nerve. This is the second time he gets it. He's been taking Advil for the pain and been putting ice hot but it doesnt help much. Is there something he can take for the pain? Its fraustrating to him because it affects his work (he's a driver).
Avatar n tn I used to be a Pharmacy Tech so I know the combination of all these drugs can be (or is) dangerous and initially (while on Tramadol) he didn't use the Percocet but I found out he was using the Flexeril with the Tramadol. He tried only 1 Naproxen and it made him sick so he said "No Way". But now he's using Percocet (supposedly alone) but I've found a few Flexeril missing from his bottles.
Avatar n tn legs, the urge to move the affected extremity, and the fact that symptoms were somewhat relieved with intake of a muscle relaxant such as cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril). RLS does not only occur at night, although symptoms are usually more severe at nighttime. I noticed you mentioned that bloodwork done was okay. However, you did not mention what were the tests done. Was blood glucose and iron levels determined?
Avatar f tn So I assure you it could be much worse. I'm not trying to minimize your pain, if it can be managed with advil, thats great. I think you just need to give it a little more time and don't be so discouraged.
Avatar n tn 15 minutes, got into bed with a heating pad and now my pain is worse. What should I be using, heat or ice, or atlernating? Also, should I be concerned about pneumonia or any other lung issues although I do not have any respiratory symptoms? How long should I wait to see a physician if the symptoms persist?
1581408 tn?1296510470 I was initially diagnosed with mild arthritis in my lumbar spine at 16, and was told to manage the pain with Tylenol or Advil when it got too uncomfortable. In 2005, after several years of the pain getting much worse - the point that I was taking 5 Advil (approx 1000mg) every 4 hours and still not getting enough relief, I was sent for a CT scan and MRI of my spine. The results - I had 4 bulging disks, 2 cervical and 2 lumbar. The doc's put me on a combination of Mobil & Tramadol.
Avatar m tn As soon as I finished the Augmentin (I still had 5 more days of the steroids) the knot/pain on the left came back - again not relieved with Advil, Ultram, Flexeril, heat, ice, stretching, massage, etc. I also have chronic low back pain but I have never had a problem with my neck or upper back. However, after the tick bite I developed pain in the area of the tick bite that felt like a really sore, deep muscle pain so now both areas are very painful.
Avatar f tn but i have to say it was tempting when he came back into the office with a script of hydros and muscle relaxers and i gave them back, and told him how i have been addicted, and that i would deal with it using icepacks, stretching and 800mg of advil. i think i caught him offguard, and he told me, he respected me for being honest. so i hope i can stay this strong... I won against the demon today. but theres always tomarrow....
1563995 tn?1296005797 hey lexus just a warning watch it with that flexeril it's a little demon of it's own i know what they say about it but there full of it, i heard it's just as bad if not worse quitting those so be careful and don't trade one for the other just some advice if your at a week i would flush that garbage down the toilet....hope your feeling better ..jeff..
Avatar f tn 30mg Roxy's are pretty powerful things, so it may linger a while. I'm gonna be honest here, I tried Flexeril during most all of my detoxes. They never seemed to help me at all. That being said, I'm pretty tolerant to muscle relaxers, so none of them did me very much good even when I was using. Try them before bedtime, they may help you to sleep. Please, resist the urge to take large doses. Keep it at or under the dosages on the bottle.
645800 tn?1466864555 Of late I have been having a lot of pain and am looking for maybe some suggestions of how to deal with it. It is in the area of my stomach and sides just below my rib cage and think it is due to spasticity of those muscles. Normally I am fine but if I cough or sneeze it just about brings me to my knees. Each day it seems to be located in another area one day in the middle, next day the left side, then back to the middle followed by the right side.
Avatar n tn During the day the intensity level fluctuates and becomes more/less severe along with neck tension, facial tension and ears plugging more. This has been going on for over seven years. In the least six months I’ve tried PT, went to the pain management clinic where I got trigger point injections for my shoulders and headaches. The injections helped my shoulders my shoulder pain but not me headaches. I’ve seen a GP, neurologist, ENT, physical therapist, allergist and chiropractor etc.
