Norflex Side Effects

What do you suggest if my friend admitted to me that she is addictive to norflex. long ago she had a back operation and was addictive?
Not sure what ? is: What can I suggest for you? None of us can ultimately get someone else to stop hurting themselves - they have to decide that it is a problem. You can express your concern about them and tell them you care, but pushing your point of view can become nagging and be counterproductive. Norflex does not cause physical dependency, so it is a psychological issue. Try Alanon for your issues with her. ...Read more
