Not enough info: There really is not enough information to answer your question. Cyclobenzaprine is classified as a muscle relaxant although it probably works through mild sedation which helps with the relaxation.

Read label on bottle: If you look on your medication bottle your doctor will have given you exact directions as to how long to wait between doses. Often times it's simply daily.

Well, ....: You should be ok this one time, but you should increase fluids and eat something to help with the double dose that you SHOULD NOT have taken. Only take any medication as it is prescribed.

Heavy sedation: I'm not sure what the "750" is, but I suspect you are talking about combining a muscle relaxant cyclobenzaprine and the pain medication hydrocodone 7.5 mg/acetaminophen 750 mg for acute muscle sprain, like from a low back injury. Be careful for heavy sedation side effect. You must not drive, work with any dangerous machinery or perform any tasks that could be unsafe. Hope that helps ...Read more

Should be safe: I assume you mean pyrigesic or Acetaminophen (tylenol). This is a non-narcotic pain killer, and it should have no difficulty being combined with the muscle relaxant cyclobenzaprine (flexeril). Just stay under 4000mg, and ideally 3000mg, of pyrigesic per day for the health of your liver. ...Read more

I took 20 mg of cyclobenzaprine not realizing I was only supposed to take 10 mg. Should I be concerned? I am worried.
Probably no worries: Usual dose of cyclobenzaprine from 10-30mg. Daily or 15-30 as a one time dose in extended release form. Therefore, it sounds like you're within the limits of normality. You may experience some side effects such as fatigue, lethary, slurred speech, and blunting of your thoughts but this is all transient and will get back to normal in less than a day. Good idea to let your doc know what happened. ...Read more
