Can you take cyclobenzaprine , 600mg of Advil (ibuprofen) and 10mg amitripline for headache and neck pain?
Medications: First of, golden rule is to use the least amount of medicine to help with your symptoms to avoid possible medicine interactions and side effects. If you need to take all of these medications, be sure to tell your doctor of any side effects such as increased drowsiness, dry mouth, dizziness, fast heart beat etc. Immediately. Medications are helpful but you should always use with caution. ...Read more

The problem is that both are very addicting if taken on a long term basis so since fibromyalgia is a chronic problem and an alternative treatment that would be better is an antidepressant Cymbalta or savella (milnacipran) and Lyrica or neurontin.See pcp for advice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

On Meloxicam 7.5 mg for pain mgmt including 800mg Neuronton 3x, 5 mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) 3x, .2mg clonodine. What can I take for headache?
With that regimen...: Many of those can cause headaches when taken on a daily basis. I would discuss with your prescriber options for treatment. You could try Tylenol (acetaminophen) today but if you take it on a daily basis it can also cause rebound headaches as the other ones. I would suggest a Neurology consultation in order to treat pain and headaches as well. ...Read more
Intermittent throbbing headache for +48 hours after tennis, seems connected to neck (can rub neck and recreate). What is best treatment: heat, ibuprofen, flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl)?
All good options : The options you mention are good and in the right order to use! (flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) requires a prescription) if you didn't sustain an injury, it is likely tight neck muscles due to overuse. Range of motion exercises can help as well.
