No: Cyclobenzaprine (flexeril) is not a narcotic but it can have significant side effects which are similar to narcotic medications. Side effects include drowsiness or dizziness. You should not take alcoholic beverages or operate a car or other machinery while taking this medication. The medicine is used often as a muscle relaxant to treat back spasms, for example.
