My herniated disc has not been hurting for about 4 months but the pain has come back with lower back pain and it's hard to bend over and move just wondering if I should take 10 milligrams cyclobenzaprine or 500 milligrams Naproxen
I did some research and I don't think if you took both would hurt or have any interactions:
There were no interactions found in our database between cyclobenzaprine and Naproxen Sodium DS
Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.
Cyclobenzaprine is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain or injury.
Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
Naproxen is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tendinitis, bursitis, gout, or menstrual cramps.
The delayed-release or extended-release tablets are slower-acting forms of naproxen that are used only for treating chronic conditions such as arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis. These forms will not work fast enough to treat acute pain.
Hope this helps!
