I had back pain so bad today I couldn't stand. I took 1 10mg(my dads)cyclobenzaprine tablet Will this cause me to fail a military drug test in 10 days?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
I take 1 tablet of .05 klonopin and 20mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) at night, but I still can't fall a sleep, can I add 1mg of melatonin ?

Shldr neck muscle pain. have 10mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl). how long to feel relief other than just being sleepy? I take 1/4-1/2 tablet at bedtime
1-2 hours.: The time that it takes to work will depend upon the specific situation. It is absorbed rather quickly, so will have some benefit within the first 1-2 hours. When used for acute treatment of muscle spasm, it is usually prescribed to be taken three times per day, because the effect may wear off within 8-12 hours, even though the drug has a long half-life (an average of 18 hours). ...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 3 more doctor answers
