I have high blood pressure and my doctor gave me these pills to sleep. But it took away the pain a little. I still have a little pain and Im not sleep yet. Is it ok to take another one?
Cyclobenzaprine name brand if Flexeril, and it is a power muscle relaxer. The reason it helps people sleep is because of the side effects of making people drowsy. It is usually prescribed in 5mg and 10mg doses and can be taken up to 3 times per day or as prescribed.
As the drug is processed by the liver it is converted into Phenobarbital, but the drug also has an incredibly long half life in some people.
Take as prescribed, if it is not working talk with your Doctor.
