A 33-year-old female asked:

I am on flexeril but i am almost out and my script isn't due yet so i have had to cut my dose down from 30mg a day to 10mg a day but i have been having withdrawal symptoms im also on gabapentin should the gabapentin help with the flexeril withdrawals?

Well, I am a physician myself. I have been on Flexeril and Gabapentine. You have to slowly wean down on Flexeril then gabapentine. You will go thru withdrawal, fasciculation spasms. I take mag ox 400 mg daily Good idea to wean down on these meds, or eventually stop 🛑. Good luck

If you can, wean off the flexeril by tapering off higher doses, such as By 5 mg every few days, Best of luck!
