When would flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) be indicated for migraine treatment? Also, would it be daily dosing or a prn medication?

When would flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) be indicated for migraine treatment? Also, would it be daily dosing or a prn medication?

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl): Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a muscle relaxant & would be used if the migranes were being triggered by muscle tension which is uncommon since most migraines are vascular in nature. I would think if prescribed for migraines it would be prn but there are better choices if you have true migraine headaches that could prevent or treat them. ...Read more

Not drugs...: I usually treat these issues with occlusal splints coupled with a steroid for the first week of splint therapy. This works with 99% of cases. A properly-fabricated occlusal splint will do much more than any pill. ...Read more

Mixing drugs perigesic and cyclobenzaprine should a person take the two drugs together?

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

Is flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) a drug that can get you kicked out of military service?

No, but...: It will ground you if you have airborne or diving status, and your profile will/should indicate you are on muscle relaxants which may impact safety and keep you from doing your MOS. You may be stuck in the motor pool for a while until you are considered safe by your treating military doctor. Being on a limiting T3 (liothyronine) profile long enough - regardless of reason - will send you straight to the MEB. ...Read more

Cyclobenzaprine: Http://www. Rxlist. Com/flexeril-drug/clinical-pharmacology. Htm

Half life is about 18 hours (up to 37 hrs) so by 10 days, you should be through 7-13 half lives so the amount in your blood should be negligible. So would not worry. Do not take any more unless you have a prescription (if you have a valid prescription, then it usually does not cause problems with drug testing). f/u/ w/ doc. ...Read more

Cyclobenzaprine HCl will it show up in drug testing?

As a tricyclic: Cyclobenzaprine is not chemically similar to benzodiazepines, which include drugs such as xanax, (alprazolam) ativan, valium, and klonopin. There should be no cross reactivity between cyclobenzaprine and benzodiazepines on drug testing. Cyclobenzaprine is chemically similar to tricyclic antidepressants, such as Elavil (amitriptyline). Some panels for substances of abuse do include tests for tricyclics. ...Read more

Need to ask for information on the test used, and method of confirmation / follow-up testing (first usually qualitative, confirmatory quantitative).

Will flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) give you a false positive on a drug test? I have recently been prescribed flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and took a drug test and I failed it. I do not do drugs and it showed up as THC why is this

Not likely: Most drug tests use a first test, TLC or thin layer chromatography, as an initial screen. This test is prone to cross-reaction or "false positive" results for some substances. Usually if the TLC is positive, a second test, gcms or gas chromatography mass spectroscopy is used to confirm. This test is much more specific for specific molecules and not likely to yield false positive results. ...Read more
