In brief: Let me try

The management of cyclobenzaprine overdose should follow the same pathway as any tricyclic drug.
Gastric decontamination is fairly effective because the anticholinergic effects of cyclobenzaprine delay gastric emptying and therefore it becomes possible to obtain tablet residues even after significant time elapse. After that the heart manifestations should be addressed. Please below.
