I : I am glad you asked. Cyclobenzaprine (flexeril) can be started at a dose of 5-10 mg taken at bedtime. The 10mg cyclobenzaprine is a non-scored tablet. Studies have shown that the tablet does not break evenly, even with a pill cutter, so it is recommendted that it not be split. There are however 5mg tablets as well.
