Vicodin with flexeril

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin with flexeril


Avatar f tn Flexeril is a muscle relaxant. Sweetie, I would ask your doctor about something like that before taking anything. 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!!!
1415174 tn?1453243103 I've tried both Soma and Flexeril (not at same time!) for muscle relaxers (I have fibromyalgia, lupus, severe arthritis). Really the only side effect I've experienced with the Flexeril is that it makes me VERY sleepy, but when I'm hurting and having trouble getting the rest that I need, that actually is a good thing!
623065 tn?1275503695 Generally with spinal injuries, or neurosurgery, if a patient is looking at back surgery Flexeril (muscle relaxers) and Vicodin (pain killers) are the main medications used to help with the pain. If he has chopped the pills up, then he's most likely NOT abusing them. The reason I say this is because he would be taking several pills WHOLE. He probably took one and realized he was really sensitive to them, so cut them up so he could take a smaller dose so he would not be so tired.
Avatar f tn prescribed Medrol which I finished taking over a week ago. I have also been taking Vicodin and Flexeril. The Vicodin seems to be constipating me (bonus). The pain intensifies when I wake up and try to get out of bed, but it is not isolated and remains constant throughout the day. I've tried ice packs and heating pads. I haveHave had this for about 6 weeks. Just wondering if anyone can give me advice or a magic cure. I stopped boot camp two weeks ago.
1457315 tn?1288459746 Wry neck? That what Dr. said. Medrol dose pack twice. vicodin flexeril. C collar . massages and traction. Chiropractor. Cured! Now........It is starting up again? I don't want to go through all of that again. What is making my neck go WRY? A physical therapist at work said sleeping under a ceiling fan. Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Vicodin is a pain reliever with tylenol. The other two are antidepressants,one an SSRI the other an SNRI. To me taking them together make no sense. They do travel different pathways in the brain/body, one holds Norephineprine where it is needed for energy and pain reduction. Serotonin is held where it is needed by both meds which help with depression. Trust your doctor. He must have assessed that your depression is serious and a source of your pain besides the Fibromyalgia.
Avatar m tn Before I went in for my appointment I went to urgent care and they gave me an rx of flexeril and vicodin. Will that show up on my new doctors computer, or does she have to dig for that info?
Avatar m tn You should be OK on those things but I would not start at the full doses of L-Tyrosine. Build up 500mg at a time and see how you do. You shouldn't need the valium with the Flexeril. Neurontin sometimes has helped with w/ds so that should actually benefit you.
1185172 tn?1264284610 Thanks - yes, I did flush them. I've tried lyrica and cymbalta and they both raised my controlled hypertension to uncontrollable, so no luck there. I take klonopin & flexeril for sleep and they work fine. I just started about a week ago on effexor, I know it won't help with the pain, but hopefully it will help with my attitude. I stretch and swim which helps with the stiffness, it's just the pain in my joints is horrific at times as you know and it hurts to just barely move.
232328 tn?1207090071 Hi there. I was prescribed flexeril today for some back pain. Can anyone tell me exactly what it is? If it is addicting? Will it make me sleepy/hyper, etc?
Avatar m tn I just seen that you posted. Sorry so long to get back with you. The flexeril never helped me. It did not even make me sleepy. Why don't you call the posion control hotline and believe it or not they can help you. If not they can give you a number to call. If you don't want to do that call your local er and let them know what's going on for him.
2730764 tn?1340148833 There is really no easy way of detoxing from home. I have dealt with hundreds of addicts who have all told me horror stories of doing it by themselves. I would only guess that if are successful in doing it at home you don't end up in my clinic. Just in case you are curious, it takes us three to four days to detox a patient and get him/her back home drug free and feeling well on Naltrexone therapy (no opiates).
Avatar m tn I'm so sorry your daughter is having such problems. Chronic intractable pain has been one of the most debilitating symptoms I have. I don't know how old your daughter is, but my symptoms began to emerge when I was in college. I was unknowingly exacerbating the pain by wearing halter tops, racer back sports bras, bikinis that around the neck, etc. Before I made that connection (and on other "bad days" too), I missed lecture after lecture because I couldn't even move my head.
Avatar m tn I am assuming that your family doctor has x-rays. You need to see a physical therapist and strengthen your inner core. There is nothing the doctors can do to fix the problem. The operation is far from perfect and usually results in more pain. The muscle relaxants do help some people, but can't help people with severe problems. You do need to see a neurologist and get an MRI. They will work with you, even if you don't have insurance.
Avatar f tn I took him to ER, where MRI indicated herniated and Bulging disc among a lot of long words wrong with his lower back. First visit sent home with a neuro surgeon referral and Vicodin. Back to hospital 2 days later Vicodin not working another MRI, showed same thing. Sent home with Percocet 10 mg and valium, for three days. Primary care called in more Percocet and changed his muscle relaxer to Ativan. Still in pain, he started drinking after being sober for over a year.
Avatar f tn Now I have 3 doctors writing me scripts for 60 Vicodin, 30 Vicodin and 60 Hydrocodone 650 tab. I want to quit and not sure cold turkey is safe. I know my neck will still hurt and feel like someone stabbed me but I can't take the lies and manipulation of acquiring enough pain medicine anymore. I am cranky and quick to anger when I don't take at least 6 a day. That and I have gained 35 pounds because I HAVE to have sugar-candy and cereal and icecream.
1142551 tn?1264736930 I'd like an answer to this question, too! Not just my feet, but often my hands, and even my entire body. I'll feel extremely chilled, yet I'll be sweating. And if it helps any with the responses you and I receive to this question, I'm not on any DMD yet. I take Gabapentin/Neurontin, Lisinopril and Atenolol, Imdur (a nitro therapy for my heart), Crestor (for cholesterol), Flexeril, and I take Vicodin when I'm in pain. That's about it.
Avatar f tn Before getting pregnant i was taking tramadol and flexeril to take the edge off if my jaw started locking up. Now my ob just has me on the lowest dose of flexeril but it seems to do nothing for it. Just 10 more weeks though i think i can make it if i've gotten this far.
757527 tn?1237893063 My doctor prescribed 5mg Flexeril daily. I took one last night and my pain went from a 8 (on a 10 scale) to about a 3. Has anyone else tried these? Can they be used long term? I'd rather not have to rely on medicine, but if this is helping me, I may have to stick with it. I also get myofascial massages, use warm heat, take Vit B50, and am trying some new supplements for muscles and joints.
Avatar f tn Today I am going to start my taper off of vicodin which I have taken irresponsibly for over a year. I also take Fioricet, flexeril, and have been perscribed Zoloft which is about week 5. Also going through Klonopin withrawals which has made me shake like crazy. The zoloft increase caused me a week and a half of nausea which has finally subsided. I'm so scared. My two children are counting on me and like many, nobody knows what I'm really going through.
Avatar f tn Hey his is my first time posting I'm 29 I've been taking vicodin 10mg for almost 2 years off an on but worse in these last few months.
