Not with Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl): Health benefits of red wine are limited to 1 serving/d for women and 2 servings/d for men. The sedative side effect of Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is what you are using for sleep. Interaction with the red wine not a great concern. However, together, may be too sedating. Also, alcohol within a couple of hours of sleep interferes with restful, recuperative sleep.
