Depends on lots..: Length of effectiveness depends on many factors...Pill strength, how often have you used the drug (getting used to it), time of day, have you eaten with it and other meds you may be taking. All of these will factor in the equation.

Difference between cyclobenzaprines and cyclobenzaprine hcl?

Apparently not.: There is no difference. The hcl is used to form the finished product through dehydration. These are given in tablets, like apo-cyclobenzaprine (10 mg tablets), Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) (5 and 10 mg tablets) and fexmid (7.5 mg tablet). They are also given in capsules. The preparation amrix, is available in 15- and 30-mg capsules given once-a-day, extended-release. The brand name is flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl).
