Prescribers: Psychiatrists are usually licensed physicians (MDs)who may prescribe all the usual medications a physician can and does prescribe. Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is among them and may be used to control side effects of other medications being used for treatment of his patients.

Definetely, yes: Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a muscle relaxant and is closely related to the tricyclic antidepressants. A Psychiatrist is a physician who specializes in mental disorders include depression.

A 48-year-old female asked:

Can I take goody powder while on flexerill?

Potentially: Goody powder is an NSAIDs and flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a muscle relaxer. So they work using different mechanisms; if there is not a specific contraindication to you taking either one, there would not likely be a problem taking them together.
