Percocet and flexeril together

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and flexeril together


Avatar n tn A week later I started getting hullucinations at night and had the Dr switch the Vicodin and got Percocet. The hullucination didn't stop and I ended up finding out that it was caused by Flexeril after searching the web. That flexeril should be avoid at all costs and it has a long 3 day half life so its going to take a long time to finally get out of me... So switched to Robaxin for the muscle relaxer. At this time I got up to 10-12 Percocets a day because of the pain.
Avatar f tn For 13 years I have used a durogesic patch and percocet together with lower to stronger strengths at the present. For 8 years I have used a durogesic 75mcg patch changing it every 48 hrs.- due to BREAK THROUGH PAIN. Along with the patch I use Percocet 7.5/325 mg 4 tablets a day. Plus, through the years I have changed other medications but at the present I also use: Neurontin 300mg 3 capsules 4 times a day Flexeril 10 mg as needed (up to 3 per day) Valium 5mg q 6 hrs.
Avatar n tn Well, my mouth still feels raw, and am getting more little blisters, and I think it may be a reaction from the Percocet. Bob, I know you are gonna make it, and my heart will be with you. I know it won't be an easy thing to do, but you will make it because you want to. I am trying to find a site on aol, that use to be here, ask a dr or something like that. Do you know what I'm referring to? Have a great holiday yourself, if I don't hear from you before.
Avatar n tn are these drugs safe together in the dosages I mentioned above and 2.
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 I dnt take more than I'm supose to but need them in order to do my day to day things. I am full of energy and happy when I take the percocet and like I have said I'm a bad mother when I'm withdrawing from them. When will I feel normal again? Will I ever feel normal? I am on my cell so if I am slow to reply that is the reason. This sight isn't mobile friendly.
Avatar n tn If you think its gonna be bad...its gonna be bad! If your anxiety gets bad and bp rises..take an ativan. I would try and save the xanax for sleep. By tomo you will have muscle cramps esp in your legs..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..
557689 tn?1225419256 Thanks for your support guys, I went ot my doctor last friday and confronted her about the drug test results and my pain condition and she kinda stepped back a bit and gave me back my flexeril and upped my xanax for me,.....she also gave me a sample tube of "VOLTAREN GEL" which is some new anti-inflamatory drug, it comes with some small strips of paper that you squeeze the gel onto for an exact measurment and then apply to whatever area is affected,....

Avatar n tn At this time last year, I was having a hard time eating and I was dependent on Morphine and a pain patch and using Percocet for break through pain. I had several ER visits and hospitalizations for pancreatitis and pain control. My enzyme levels were always just slightly elevated or normal. My PCP finally suggested that we seek out help from another specialist. I had also done a lot of research and the closest doctor who had his name all over the research was Dr. Martin Freeman.
Avatar f tn Anti-convulsant, muscle relaxers (flexeril, soma, or a benzodiazepine like Valium used off label), and a anti-depressant (if you stay on the Tramadol, the dosing of the anti-depressant needs to be started low to reduce the risk of serotonin syndrome as Tramadol possess properties that act like a anti-depressant. I don't know what your dose was of the Gabapentin but you may just need the dose increased. Medications are all started at the lowest dose to minimize side effects.
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.

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?
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 was on 4 percocet a day since my 1st accident for Myofascial pain. My doctor gave me 8 more percocet a month. I am also taking 1 Flexeril at bedtime and 4 Protriptylene before bed ( to help prevent migraines that started after #1 accident. I will get a CT soon to check new injuries. I have been told to pursue "conservative" treatment by my HMO. So the 1st time I had physical therapy, pain management, and Physiatry without much success at stopping pain.
372416 tn?1242669352 When I take the 2 together it cuts my Klonopin usage down by 90% and I don't have the social anxiety that I had before. I have had 7 knee surgeries, 2 ankle surgeries, and 3 hand surgeries. SO, I have been on Hydrocodone at dosages as high as 200mgs a day and i am off of that thanks to this drug. I just have a little trouble sleeping with it. I hope this helpps.
1581408 tn?1296510470 Instead they gave me a prescription for Percocet It's now 3 months since the accident and I am still in severe pain in my spine, now mostly in the area of the fracture more so than where the disks are bulging or the parts affected by arthritis. I was also beginning to lose some sensation in my fingers and even lower arms, and often becoming "fumble-fingered" (ie: dropping things, unable to grab them properly, etc.).
Avatar n tn the other driver fell asleep at the wheel and hit me very near head on. i sustained multiple injuries and really never should have lived through the accident ...but i did. here is a quick rundown on injuries: closed head injury; four facial fractures w/ two blow out fractures of the left orbit; "regular" bone breaks: clavicle, sturnum, humerus, radius, ulna, at least one rib... shattered bones: wrist, patella...
680303 tn?1239988440 They do hurt more when more tense, but the pain started as soon as I pulled my back but not one doctor has put that together, I am so tired of going on and off but taking nothing hurts too much. I give anyone big credit that can do it. Hydrocodone is vicodin? I get these mixed up.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar f tn 00 last night. Do you think its the xanax and flexeril that are keeping the w/ds at bay? Or has it not been long enough for them to start kicking my butt? I was only taking 2 .5mg a day, but the dr upped that to 3 a day while Im going through this. I had never taken flexeril before, so Im not sure if those help or not yet. I guess my question is how long do you think it will take me to go through w/d since I have these meds to take.
Avatar f tn These are Flexeril, Robaxin, Skelaxin, Baclofen, or Zanaflex. All of the things I mentioned above both medicinal and non medicinal are meant to all add up together to put a small dent in the pain to get it to a decent level. It's not about just getting enough opiates to do the job. The key is being very realistic about spine issues and managing pain. 30 Percocet is a regular starting dosage as you haven't been on anything prior to this...correct and you are new to this PM..
Avatar f tn And I found that the oxycodone that is in Percocet is derived from the opiate thebaine which possesses stimulant properties, which is why it makes so many people more alert and awake than drowsy and sleepy. The dose of Percocet that you were taking is well below 4,000 mg a day and in fact is even well below the tentative new maximum dose of 2,600 mg per day. Additionally, the FDA is considering a maximum one time dose of 650 mg versus 1,000 mg.
Avatar m tn I cut up one or more of these lidocaine patches and put over the stings and used one of my percocet 10's I had from a prior prescription and the two combined did help the pain, but from my long term use of these lidoderm patches, I feel they aren't worth the cost if that is the only thing for pain you are prescribed, for by themselves, they don't seem to help anything but surface pain. I have heard they help sunburn pain, but I haven't had that problem to try them for that purpose.
Avatar n tn I have both hydrocodone (Vicodin) and oxycodone (Percocet), and have only used them when it was necessary, because they have always made me nauseous. I have cut them all in half to take them, and know that I need to take them with food, and just before I lie down for the night. Could I be addicted to my pain medication? I would hate to think that I might be straddling the line between necessity and addiction.
Avatar f tn I needed both a titration in strength for both the morphine and percocet and my pain was still more than I could handle but it was much more controlled than it was in the beginning. Switched insurances this year and had to find a new doctor and it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. My new doctor put me on Opana ER, 30 mg twice a day along with percocet for breakthrough pain.
1331804 tn?1336870958 The Opana (oxymorphone) is a much stronger medication than morphine and percocet. I talked to my pharmacist and he thought the titration was very high and suggested that I call the ER to get a more definitive answer. He said in opioid resistant patients (like myself), I would probably be okay. He asked if I would have family members around to monitor me tomorrow when I take my first dose and I do. My husband and son will be here tomorrow.
