Cyclobenzaprine Dosage For Sleep
Neither best: Many drugs have sedation as one of many side effects, such as the two you mention. In fact, Restoril (temazepam) is an old brand of hydroxyzine I'd written for years ago whose use is implied by the name. Yet it is primarily an antihistamine. Better to ask for currently used drugs whose effects are more specific for insomnia. ...Read more
My doctor prescribed me cyclobenzaprine for headaches, is it okay if I used it as a sleeping aid also?
Insomnia: Problems sleeping can lead to chronic health issues. I think u need investigations into "why" u are having sleep issues. This might also be related somehow to your headaches. As the other doc pointed out- cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and not a sleeping pill or headache remedy. Best to get at the root causes of things. Have u seen a sleep specialist? Working on "sleep hygiene" should help. ...Read more

I would recommend seeing your family doctor for a referral to a sleep clinic for an overnight polysomnogram. Best wishes. ...Read more

Seeing info on benefits of red wine, but I take flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) at night for sleep, Ultram in the am and sometimes at noon for pain. Is red wine a "no go? "
Not with Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl): Health benefits of red wine are limited to 1 serving/d for women and 2 servings/d for men. The sedative side effect of Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is what you are using for sleep. Interaction with the red wine not a great concern. However, together, may be too sedating. Also, alcohol within a couple of hours of sleep interferes with restful, recuperative sleep. ...Read more

Taking 1/2 Soma at night for sleep/muscle spasms. Looking for shorter-acting muscle relax. That won't change natural sleep architecture. Tried flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl)?
Talk to your PCP: There are other frequently prescribed muscle relaxants including Flexeril and skelaxin (metaxalone). I generally prefer skelaxin (metaxalone) as it is better tolerated while Flexeril tends to be overly sedating. You should discuss with your primary care physician which medication is right for you. ...Read more
For sleep aid, patient with severe insomnia you dr. Had to choose between prescribing Amitriptyline or Trazadone or Flexeril, (cyclobenzaprine hcl) which one would you choose? And how would you monitor it?
Adjunct, side effects: It all depends on the situation. The bigger question to me is "why does the patient have insomnia? " and then deal with that piece. You mentioned that you're on methotrexate, but not why. Similarly, you've had a cardiac catheterization, but don't state the reason. The choice of drug when treating insomnia, if a drug therapy is required at all, depends strongly on the other conditions. ...Read more

Is it safe to double up on Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) 5mg if my one dose an hour ago hasn't touched my pain? Will I be able to wake up in the morning? And function?
At night: Best try one or two in bedtime. It depends on your tolerance because some people get very sleepy from it. That is why it is best to take it before you go to bed night. You have to give it a chance to clarify your pain, help your sleep, and help decrease the pain sensations. Some people will not tolerate 10 mg at bedtime, but you can start at five and then slowly increase it to the 10 and see how ...Read more
How much time should be inbetween a dose of 100mg gabapentin and: 5/325 hydrocodone, 10mg cyclobenzaprine, or 1mg xanax (alprazolam)? Gabapentin scares me.
Gabapentin scares U?: Really? Because the hydrocodone and its pharmacology would worry me more. I have seen people get side effects on small doses of gabapentin for sure. But I've never seen them have trouble stopping compared to Hydrocodone. You should not take all those drugs together. I think that's a lot (especially if you happen to be petite?). Check with your doctor for rationale dosing schedule to following. ...Read more
