Not a good idea.: Not if you are planning on driving or operating heavy machinery or have significant pulmonary issues like sleep apnea. Both can lead to drowsiness. You should also avoid drinking alcohol which is a depressant like ativan. Ativan can cause respiratory depression at higher doses like narcotics which could cause apnea and even death. Take the flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) during the day. ...Read more

Half life 8-37 hrs.: Half life of cyclobenzaprine ranges from 8-37 hours, with the average half life being approximately 18 hrs. It is metabolized in the liver through the cyp450 enzyme system.

Can I take 2 10 mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) at one time? Is there a big risk with doing that?
Don't take 20mg:
The maximum dose of flexeril is 10mg 3 times per day. A higher dose will give a higher peak level in your blood, and could cause sedation, cardiac arrythmias, and other serious stuff.
Flexeril is a weak muscle relaxant. In my experience, people with severe spasm often do better with baclofen, or robaxin, (methocarbamol) or tizanidine. ...Read more
Ask your doctor: Many drugs have interactions with each other and that includes this combination. Both of these meds. Have a "sedative" like effect and the combination is at minimum additive. If you have been on one medication for some time than the second will likely be less prone to cause an issue than were you to start both at the same time. This is an issue that a professional should be actively managing. ...Read more

Should be ok: Benadry is an anti-allergy (anti-histamine) and Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is essentially a serotonin anti-depressant med. But you might feel a little extra sleepy, so be careful about machinery/driving etc and try it out with some supervision the first time b/c everyone has individual reactions. ...Read more
