Diazepam is a: sedative and caffeine is a stimulant. If any thing, they might cancel each other out. However, equal parts uppers and downers don't necessary make you feel good. If you get nauseous after 2 cups of coffee, why not stop at one? or 1 1/2? Or half decaf, half regular? Or tea (which has a lower concentration of caffeine.)? Hope this helps. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Controversial: There are studies on both sides of this issue, with some researchers finding that tramadol did reduce withdrawal, while others finding that it either did very little, or in some cases actually made it worse. A problem is that doses of ultram in the therapeutic range (300-400 mg/day) can cause seizures. My patients have told me mostly that ultram did very little for them, but a few got + results. ...Read more

Does flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) help with restless leg syndrome?

May help but....: Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is not used for rls. That being said, if you have other muscle relaxant issues, Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) may help. As monotherapy it likely won't completely resolve. If you truly have rls, the best treatment option would be using a dopaminergic agonist (pramipexole or ropinirole.) see a sleep medicine specialist and he/she can help determine if you truly have rls, and treat correctly. ...Read more

I take hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, xanax, (alprazolam) and cymbalta. Xanax (alprazolam) as needed, cymbalta brand new - causing nausea. Can I take ondansetron?

I take hydrocodone, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, xanax, (alprazolam) and cymbalta. Xanax (alprazolam) as needed, cymbalta brand new - causing nausea. Can I take ondansetron?

Wouldn't recommend: you are already on several drugs which inhibit serotonin reuptake, increasing their levels - amitriptylene, Cymbalta (duloxetine) and cyclobenzaprine all have that potential, and ondansetron does it big time. This can result in the serotonin syndrome which is dangerous and even potentially fatal. All of these drugs also produce sedation. I would talk with your provider and pharmacist about safety of this. ...Read more
