Doctor insights on:
Taking mobic (meloxicam) for torn meniscus for a week. Not improving. Any advice? Can't sit at work or drive or sleep comfortably.
Taking 50mg trazadone for sleep. Pulled a muscle exercising and would love to take 10mg cyclobenzaprine and 15mg meloxicam. Any issues?
Multiple medications: Trazodone is an anti-depressant and can be used for insomnia. Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer. Both of these medications can cause drowsiness. Meloxicam is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. You can take them together, just be aware that they all can cause drowsiness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
