Currently in tx/lower back and hip pain (mostly on iliac crest) only flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and Ultram help-xr neg?

Limit treatment.: If that effective rx is effective, complete a 3-4 week course of treatment. However, if the problem does not resolve, have it further worked up beyond the xrays. You do not want to stay on Ultram for prolonged period. For most problems, I give it 3-4 weeks to get better or resolve, before more intense workup. ...Read more

Tramadol & Concerta: Tramadol is an opioid with analgesic (pain blocking) & serotoninergic (mood altering) effects. Methylphenidate (Concerta) is an amphetamine and acts in the brain as well — essentially 'revving' things up. Having 2 drugs work in the brain could be a set-up for side-effects (SE), such as seizures -rare but serious SE when used in combination.

Seeing info on benefits of red wine, but I take flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) at night for sleep, Ultram in the am and sometimes at noon for pain. Is red wine a "no go?"

Seeing info on benefits of red wine, but I take flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) at night for sleep, Ultram in the am and sometimes at noon for pain. Is red wine a "no go?"

Not with Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl): Health benefits of red wine are limited to 1 serving/d for women and 2 servings/d for men. The sedative side effect of Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is what you are using for sleep. Interaction with the red wine not a great concern. However, together, may be too sedating. Also, alcohol within a couple of hours of sleep interferes with restful, recuperative sleep. ...Read more

Bruised my ribs 1 wk ago. Was given Tramadol (can't take opiates) and Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl). I am so constipated, no BM since injury. Took MOM & NOTHING-HELP!!!!

Colace, (docusate sodium) senna: There are other combinations such as prune juice or colace and senna or miralax (polyethylene glycol) that can help with the constipation. Unfortunately the tramadol may be constipating as it has opioid like properties even though it is synthetic. Therefore, you may want to try topical diclofenac, also called Pennsaid or lidocaine, or lidoderm patch for the pain. ...Read more
