I am on clonidine 0.1 mg 2 x day. Doctor also prescribed flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) for help during a panic attack as i don't want to take addictive meds. Okay to mix?
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. Please consider a comprehensive evaluation with a psychiatrist, who will be well-versed in effective treatments for panic. Psychotherapy is important also! ...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?

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
