I broke a rib in a bad fall on cement stairs yesterday. It was not displaced. ER doc gave me a prescription for oxycodone. I know oxy is for pain, but I seem to be getting muscle spasms in my back that are excruciating. When I turn in a certain direction the pain just takes my breath way and I'm in the house just screaming in agony.Can I take both the oxy and a muscle relaxer together or is the muscle relaxer going to be better than the oxy? I only take one prescription drug, Simvastatin. I am 68 years old with no medical problems and extremely active.
Hi Denise! The proper answer would be to ask your doctor, but, as long as none have any interactions, should be ok to take together. Know I was prescribed oxycodone and a muscle relaxer for a condition and took them together with no problems. Take care and hope your rib heals soon!
