Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and is used to relieve muscle spasms. The initial adult dose for muscle spasm is 5mg three times a day and this can be increased to 10mg three times a day if required. It should only be taken for up to 3 weeks.
You shouldn't take 2 x 10mg cyclobenzaprine together, unless you doctor has advised you to do so.
I do not recommend you do that, I have and I was sooo dopey it wasn't funny. Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer and it will relax you too much if you do take two of them. You should only take two if your doctor o.k.'s it and don't drive your reflexes will not be the same. hope this helps, marjorie zych
It is a muscle relaxer and your heart is a muscle, if you take too much at one time it can stop your heart
Ask your doctor, he'll know the right answer, not people on the web. If you want advice about muscle relaxers, BE CAREFUL! Your heart is a muscle; so, technically your heart will relax and slowly stop beating until you die. So take the right dosage, if the dose is to low and you can't see a doctor quickly, take a pill and split another in half, then take the half and the whole pill. Be safe.
You guys are silly they higher dosages than 10 so why not take two?? I have a bad back and I have taken why higher than that! Lol
It's not recommended that you do that for the simple fact that Flexeril is used to relax your muscles. ALL your muscles, that includes your heart. And when taking two at a time CAN stop your heart. I've seen it happen and I've done it myself. It can also cause sever swelling in the back of your throat, making it hard to swallow or breathe.
I take one and a half because, like you said, one doesn't do much. But I do not recommend you even take over one. There are other drugs that can help you be relaxed.
Yes, nothing will happen, I take it myself nd have taken up to 3 including 1 hydrocodone nd 1 gabapentin at the same time
While a dose of 20mg is fitting within the daily limit you should check with your doctor first. My pharmacist told me that it relaxes all muscles, it makes no differentiation between skeletal and other muscles. This was directly from my pharmacist whom I trust more than know it all's on the internet. That is why a glance at the drug fact sheet with your scrip says an overdose may impair heart and respiratory function. And shouldn't be mixed with alcohol. Call your doctor. They know your health history and are more equiped to answer your question. Hell, even a 24 hour nursing line would give you better information than you will get here.
Can I take 2 tablets of cyclobenzaprine?
I just took 30 mg of the cyclo and 2 gabapentan I'll let u know if I die
I took 5 last night and slept well... no problem.
I just took 4 cyclobenzaprine 10mg at once by accident thinking they were my spirnolatone because they look the same and I picked up on wrong bottle didn't notice until after will I be ok trying to call doctor or pharmacist But I'm so nervous I'll od
I took 6 pills of 10mg all at once of cyclobenzaprine and I also had xanax in my system from the day before and I'm suprisised I didn't OD. But it made me really , really tired and confused. Plus I was at school so in every class I would just pass out and my teacher kept waking me up to ask if I needed to go to the nurse and I could barely respond bc I was so out of it. But that's all I remember cause my memory was kinda messed up.
