Prescribed cyclobenzaprine(10mg) one a day at night, etodolac(500mg) 2x a day and prednisone(20mg) 2 tablets daily. Are these meds ok to mix?
Maybe: Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer, and works with either of the other two. I prefer not to mix the steroid (prednisone) with the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (etodolac), as one can potentiate the other's side effects. It's done sometimes though. I tend to use the steroid acutely, for a short period of time, the use non-steroidals. ...Read more
No: Cyclobenzaprine is a type of muscle relaxant, and not an opoid medication (narcotic). Because it can affect the way you feel, some people can become psychologically dependent on it if they take a lot over an extended period of time. But it is not a narcotic or opoid medication. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How many hours do I have to wait after taking cyclobenzaprine 10mg bottle says take 1 three times a day?
Typically 6 hours: Typically a three times a day medication refers to your awake hours rather than an entire 24 hours. It is usually every 6 hours such as 8a, 2p, and 8 pm, for example. The medication you are asking about can make you sleepy, so some people can only take it at night before they go to sleep or they can try a reduced dosage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
