Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and alcohol: if it as been a couple hours after the last beer it should be ok to take the flexural tonight

Yes: If you had two beers and you are not feeling any effects from the beer it is safe to take. I think its a good time to take it before bed, because it can make you drowsy. Better to discover how drowsy now than in the morning.
