IbuprofenFlexeril #3: Do you take Ibuprofen in order to reduce the number of #3 pills taken in a 24 hour period of time? You must be dealing with spams or cramps since you included Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) in your medicine list. It's okay to "stagger" these medications but the best thing is keeping the use of all of these to the bare minimum in order to keep your risk of kidney and liver impairment as low as possible.
