Panic attacks: With this combo, you could feel sedated or drowsy -- and Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) doesn't help much with panic attacks either. There are non-addictive medications that do help panic attacks, such as antidepressants which can act preventively.

My Clonodine HCL is 3weeks past experation date.Is it safe to take for a 2 more weeks until next appt.I do not take daily,using to assist in opiate wd?

If stored in bathrooms where very hot showers are taken, or in places that are very hot/humid, they may not last as long. Your clonidine should be fine and good luck - get treatment as well as "detox" for your problem. ...Read more

On Meloxicam 7.5 mg for pain mgmt including 800mg Neuronton 3x, 5 mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) 3x, .2mg clonodine. What can I take for headache?

With that regimen...: Many of those can cause headaches when taken on a daily basis. I would discuss with your prescriber options for treatment. You could try Tylenol (acetaminophen) today but if you take it on a daily basis it can also cause rebound headaches as the other ones. I would suggest a Neurology consultation in order to treat pain and headaches as well. ...Read more
