I have been taking 70mg of balcofen for the last two years and my daughter has asked me to check what effect it has on my heart because it is a mussel too. Thank you Rhonda Hansen
Cardiovascular side effects including hypertension, bradycardia, and orthostatic hypotension have been reported.
The heart is not the same kind of muscle as the muscles in your back and extremities. Muscle relaxers work on striated muscle, those like are in your back.
The heart is a smooth muscle. It has some cardiovascular side effects as masso supplied, but it doesn't have a direct effect on your heart.
