I'm allergic to red #40 (a common allergen) as well as yellow dyes #10 & #30. So first, is there a manufacturer that currently makes a 5 mg or 10 mg cyclobenzaprine (generic for Flexeril) product without those dyes? Then next, if it's made, what national chain pharmacies carry the product? I'll scrape off a colored coating if I can't get a dye-free pill. The reason I'm looking for this is because the last two makers of dye-free 10 mg imipramine (generic for Tofranil) suddenly quit making it. I've taken that for 20+ years to control my interstitial cystitis, migraines, IBS, food allergies, and fibromyalgia. Flexeril is a close chemical relative of Tofranil so I figure it may be a helpful substitute.
There is an app called 'epocrates' that anyone can download the free version. It is also available for desk top. Every manufacturer of the pills is represented by pill pictures. Perhaps that will help you identify a non-dyed pill.
