There are other ingredients in the tablet that would also be inhaled, and their effect would be unknown. ...Read more

Is there any other medicine for muscle relaxer, to relax muscles in the throat, besides cyclobenzaprine, because that makes my eyes blurry and headache?

Muscle relaxants: There are a variety of muscle relaxants available, with variable amounts of side effects. Sedation is a very common side effect, and muscle relaxants have risks from this.

I'm taking losartan, meloxicam, flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and amoxicillin and what I wanted to know is it safe to take all together? Someone please help me....

I'm taking losartan, meloxicam, flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and amoxicillin and what I wanted to know is it safe to take all together? Someone please help me....

Mixed effects.: Losartan tends to heal the kidneys. Meloxicam is potentially harmful to the kidneys, causes salt retention, hypertension and can therefore cause heart failure. It might be best to avoid nsaids if one can get relief of pain with other medications. In this case, perhaps you could get by without the meloxicam. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Yes if needed: But only one time a day since meloxicam is a nonsteroidal antiinflamatory pain medicine taken 1 time a day & cyclobenzaprine acts to relax muscle and can be prescribed more often. Can be prescribed daily together for acute musculoskeletal pain and spasm, like a back strain or arthritis flare with associated spasm. Both can make you very sleepy, so do not try to drive or anything. ...Read more

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

My doctor put me on Lexapro (escitalopram) and the muscle relaxer zanaflex. My question is it safe to take together without causing serotonin syndrome?

My doctor put me on Lexapro (escitalopram) and the muscle relaxer zanaflex. My question is it safe to take together without causing serotonin syndrome?

Possibly with EKG: The medication Zanaflex works by working at norepinephrine receptors and Lexapro (escitalopram) works primarily through interacting with serotonin receptors. The precipitation of serotonin syndrome in the context of their concomitant administration would not be predicted by anyone. However, Lexapro (escitalopram) and Zanaflex together can change your heart rhythm and so you may talk to a doctor about the role for an ekg. ...Read more
