Can you take a 10mg Flexeril for muscle spasms if you took Alleve 2 hours ago?

Recovering from shoulder surgery and currently in Phy Therapy 2x a week. Normally take Alleve for pain as needed. New problem this week is severe muscle spasms. Was having an ok day from spasms until now...

Sorry...I take only one 220mg Alleve.
You can definitely take Flexeril 10mg for muscle spasms but it is better to take the flexeril 10mg after 3hrs after you took the Alleve..But I cud answer the question more briefly and specifically if you tell that what is the strength of Alleve you are taking...
My doctor told me that you can alternate stuff every two hours. I alternate flexeril with advil or and alleve and flexeril every two to three hours if I need to for neck pain. No probelms at all. Good Luck. Michele
I would agree, yes you can. I take three 10 mg flexorill a day and they work great. Some people get knocked out tired from it but not I, as I am on suboxone and it is hard to feel effects of any drug.
