My doctor prescribed me cyclobenzaprine for headaches, is it okay if I used it as a sleeping aid also?
Insomnia : Problems sleeping can lead to chronic health issues. I think u need investigations into "why" u are having sleep issues. This might also be related somehow to your headaches. As the other doc pointed out- cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and not a sleeping pill or headache remedy. Best to get at the root causes of things. Have u seen a sleep specialist? Working on "sleep hygiene" should help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I took 20 mg of cyclobenzaprine not realizing i was only supposed to take 10 mg. Should i be concerned? I am worried.
Probably no worries: Usual dose of cyclobenzaprine from 10-30mg. Daily or 15-30 as a one time dose in extended release form. Therefore, it sounds like you're within the limits of normality. You may experience some side effects such as fatigue, lethary, slurred speech, and blunting of your thoughts but this is all transient and will get back to normal in less than a day. Good idea to let your doc know what happened. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How many hours do I have to wait after taking cyclobenzaprine 10mg bottle says take 1 three times a day?
Typically 6 hours: Typically a three times a day medication refers to your awake hours rather than an entire 24 hours. It is usually every 6 hours such as 8a, 2p, and 8 pm, for example.
