Let me try: The management of cyclobenzaprine overdose should follow the same pathway as any tricyclic drug. Gastric decontamination is fairly effective because the anticholinergic effects of cyclobenzaprine delay gastric emptying and therefore it becomes possible to obtain tablet residues even after significant time elapse. After that the heart manifestations should be addressed. Please below.

What is the definition or description of: Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) overdose?

Too much: The definition of an overdose is simply experiencing side affects from the medication secondary to taking more than the prescribed dose. These side affects can range from mild to severe, even to the point of sudden death. A flexeril overdose implies that a person is suffering side affects of the flexeril secondary to taking to high of a dose of it.
