I took 900mg of flexeril and I need to know what side effects this drug has on a male genital area? The doctors said I was not suppose to make it through this overdose, but I did. But now my penis is not the same in length nor girth. I need more information on side effects and possible conditions this type of overdose might cause in this area. ## Well, that was a crazy thing to do! I am an RN, and you should be glad it didn't kill you. I would ask your dr about your issues with penis; I don't know of any such side effects from my other OD pts that I have had. Good luck. ## why would you do something so stupid? Is a penis size worth dying for?? Wake up ! ## Jonathan, you took 900mg of Flexeril, were brought out of an OD. And all you're worried about is the size of your penis?...

i have chronic back pain however try not to take medication unless i have to. i have left over flexeril 5mg from a prescription written in dec. 2009 and expires 2010. is it safe to take for muscles spasms or should i toss it. i like to keep some in my cabinet because the few times my back gets really bad i am unable to get out of bed. ## Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant and you should contact your doctor for a new prescription, because it does lose efficacy past the expiration date, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. This creates the danger of overdose, by taking more, to get the relief you need. Almost all medications have a limited shelf life and will start to lose efficacy past that date. Are there any other quest...

Has anyone else had a slightly tingling tongue from taking Fexeril? I just cut my 10mg in half for my first dose. ## Can you be more specific as to what you mean by tingling? The FDA lists the typical side effects for this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications? ## I wanted to take half a pill of 10mg flexaril (cyclobenzaprine)for my back pain. 10mg makes me to tired the next day sometimes. But it made my tongue numb and a little of my lip numb. I guess I should have cut it in half and then take it never expected this. I have been taking this medicine on and off for years. Never had any bad side effects. It just makes me sleepy. But it just feels so strange to feel numbness in my mouth and no mayo clinic write up or ...

Is flexeril a narcotic? What type of drug is it? ## Read the package insert. It's addictive. ## Flexeril is not a narcotic! It is a muscle relaxant. It is not a controlled (C-II, C-III, C-IV, C-V), it is just a Prescription (Rx-Only) medication. ## ANY DRUG THAT BUILDS DEPENDENCY IS DANGEROUS FOR AN ALCHOLIC OR A DRUG ADDICT. BE CAREFUL ## Any drug can be toxic, it is the dosage that determines the toxicity of the drug. ## Is a Flexeril (V 2632 yellow pill) a narcotic? I know what it's used for. I just don't know if it is an opiate or not... ## I have a prescription of flexeril that's four years old and I have been having muscle spasms in my back from shoveling snow. Is it still safe to take the flexeril? ## My friend overdosed on Flexeril within a span of 3 days! Would ...

I would like to find out more information on myoril plus tablets, including its effects & side effects. ## How effective is Myoril Plus for lower back pain? ## I am hoping to get a prescription for Flexeril/Bencoprim. Where do these drugs come from? ## Will i get back pain relief when on 10 mg suboxone and 30mg oxycontin? This is advice I require. ## I have pains at the left side of my lower back. Sometimes it moves upwards. It's more severe if it's cold or if i bathe in cold water. I have been taking tramadol and vega 100 for my libido.

Was just wondering what these pills do as doc gave it to my wife without proper name on it. Round yellow pill with E41 imprint ## Flexeril is a fairly potent muscle relaxant. They added these to my pain regimen when Congress cut down the amounts of opiates (Morphine) a person could take. ## I went to the pharmacy and asked them for asthma tablets and they gave me these small round yellow pills with E41 imprints and it stopped the asthma but I'm feeling really nauseous n have a headache after taking it...

I took a urine test and failed for benzo. I've only been taking flexeril... Can that cause a dirty result for benzo? ## The Cyclobenzaprine in Flexeril isn't known to cause false positives for Benzodiazepines, but it has been known to cause them for Tricyclic antidepressants. Where you taking anything else? Even over the counter products? ## I have flexeril what will it show on a drug screen ## Will tramadol show positive for benzos ( ## Tramadol will cause false positives for Methadone. It happens to me every time I take a drug test. ## My pain mgmt doc tests for it! Had some overlap of Rx for tramadol and Norco, took a few trams to ease the pain when Norco ran out, and there it was, earned me a stern lecture and only a 1 mo Rx for Norco instead of usual 3 mo.

Hi regarding the pill DAN 5658 do you need to be a certain weight to take 10 miligrams ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? No, it is fine to take, if it has been prescribed for you, however, it may not be appropriate for young children and the side effects may be intensified in the elderly. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The next day after taking flexeril you will feel very groggy for at least half of the day

littie white pill with dan on1 side and 5656on the other ## i believe the number is 5658. if it is, this is a generic form of flexeril (a muscle relaxant) made be watson pharmaceuticals. you can check out their product pictures under generics (i believe on page 5). ## Ann is correct, as far as I know, their distributor Major Pharmaceuticals lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. NDC code: 00904-7809 It is commonly used to treat the pain associated with muscle sprains, strains, and spasms. Is there anything else I can help with?

I am a 48 year old woman with fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. At bedtime I take Zanaflex 4 MG, Tramadol 50 MG and several other meds that don’t concern me as they’re not things that would affect my heart or breathing. When I took my meds tonight I noticed that I forgot to take my noon meds so I took those as well, forgetting that I had put a 10 MG Flexeril in with them because I was having bad muscle spasms this morning. I know I shouldn’t have taken all of this together. I called poison control and he didn’t seem concerned. I have a high tolerance for pain meds and muscle relaxers anyway so I think I’m fine too, it just never hurts to ask. ## How are you doing? Did you experience any adverse effects? The FDA warns that combining these medications cou...

Flexeril absolutely does show up on a drug screen as an anti-deppressent. Anyone who says otherwise should not be commenting on something that they know nothing about ## Why would flexeril show up as an anti-depressant? Flexeril is not an anti-depressant. ## No it does not.I've been taking them for awhile and never failed a drug test for urine or hair follicle. so u are right don't talk about.something u know nothing about. ## I'm an RN in the ER and we do test for tricyclic antidepressants for the reason that it is a group of prescription medications that can alter your mentation and are often abused, including flexeril. It doesn't mean people who take flexeril are in fact abusing it, but that they should have script for it. ## It can cause false positives IF antidepres...

Just wanted to know what this is used for ## I'm sorry, but I can't find anything listed under this name. Did you mean Flexeril, which is a muscle relaxant? ## I find my hubby using them and I am curious ## I have found that Flexim also goes by the names Methocarbamol and Robaxin. Methocarbamol is a central muscle relaxant used to treat skeletal muscle spasms. Under the trade name Robaxin, it is marketed by Actient Pharmaceuticals in the United States and Pfizer in Canada.

which is a more potent drug, soma 350 or flexeril ## The Soma is much more potent and effective as a muscle relaxant. The Flexeril tends to be very mild and only helps with slight muscle spasms. Learn more Soma details here. Learn more Flexeril details here. Which one has been prescribed for you? ## Soma is more potent, but I'm on Balcofen 20mg And it's working better and it's safer in the way of balking out!! ## I take soma daily and it has never effected me as bad as a flexeril . It knocked me on my butt ## Does one need a prescription if ordered from Canada? ## Soma is a drug that gives relief from muscle pain and spasms. Don't know any one in Tn. That will write prescription. If anyone knows of such any help will be appreciated.

Don't take this pill it was subscribed to me by a doctor and it made me feel even worse!! PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS PILL THEY NEED TO TAKE IT OFF THE MARKET!! ## HI, Chanel! Sorry that you had problems with this medication. This is a generic for Flexeril that contains 10mgs of Cyclobenzaprine, it is just a muscle relaxant, but you may have experienced some side effects from it, it can cause nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and drowsiness. Learn more Cyclobenzaprine details here. What types of problems did you experience? ## I have severe DDD and bulged discs in my vertebrae between C4-C7. I am politely agreeing to disagree with you. The medicine has some side effects (dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness etc) but nothing that should have someone screaming to take it off the market. I, for ...

I had been taking Soma 350 for years because I have six crushed vertebra and recently my doctor changed to Parafon Forte 500. So far it's not as effective as the Soma was so I'm asking anyone if Flexeril would be better choice than the Parafon Forte. Thanks. ## It's my experience that Flexeril is better than PF (that's such an old drug, didn't know they still made that?) but nothing beats Soma. I've heard that docs are trying to get patients off Soma's because - besides being such a great street drug - IT FREAKING WORKS! Nah, that last bit was my rant. The Big Evil Three are (or used to be) Xanax, Soma, and hydrocodone. I was on those for years because they effing worked. My doc had no problems with me on those drugs but apparently the DEA did. And they broug...

I've been taking the muscle relaxers flexeril 10mg 2x a day and or methocarbamol 750mg 3-4x a day. Neither of them work. What is the strongest relaxer I can ask my dr for. I suffer from low back pain daily. ## I am so much pain, and feel like i have tried everything, I just want relief. I can not move my neck. I'm on soma 2 tabs 350mg, 4 times day. is there anything stronger? ## i have had good luck with Zanaflex. (generic Tizanidine HCL 4MG) I use it for fibromyalgia which is awful pain throughout the body it helps to get some rest too. relaxes the muscles. ## I have tried all of the muscle relaxers,have degeneritive disc disease,two bulging discs.sciatica.and muscle spasms in legs and soma 350 mg 3x day has been the best for me,also helps me with the anxiety of the pain meds a...

I just took 15 pills of Cyclobenzaprine of 10mg for pain. It's a yellow pill with the letter V on one side and 2632 on the other side. And im also taking bupropion 2x a day. Is this dangerous (?) cause I'm getting scared now. ## Hello, Rose! How are you? Did you suffer any adverse effects? Why did you take so many? This is a muscle relaxant, not an actual analgesic, but taking that many could still be dangerous, because it can cause depression of the central nervous system. And I'd like to add a note for anyone else that reads this in the future, if you have reason to suspect that your life or the life of someone else may be in danger, please call poison control or be send at your nearest emergency treatment facility. While there are those of us online that are always happy ...

I think I may have strained something. Have numbness and pain in hip joint. Have on hand Flexeril, Voltaren, Voltaren gel, Robaxin Prednisone and Lorcet. Have used heating pad and tens unit with gel. No relief. Trying not to have to go to doctor. Will any of these meds be effective alone or in combination? Never had the numbness before---skin hurts to touch. ## Seeing a doctor would be your best option, to be honest. Given the numbness, there is a risk of your having some nerve damage starting, according to NIH reports, and delaying proper treatment might only make it worse. Do you take any medications regularly? Why do you have a TENS unit?

I am going to be tested, but am not sure which test I will be required to take. can u tell me what the test will show if I take flexril, tramadol, prednisone, and nyquil ## As far as I know, prednisone shouldn't show up at all, and neither should the other things but each of the other is a possibility. Tramadol isn't necessarily an opiate but it works with the opiate receptors and can cause a false positive. Flexeril is a skeletal muscle relaxant and also isn't tested for on any ua as far as I've ever heard, but it has been known to cause false positives for benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Ativan, etc.). And also NyQuil contains alcohol I believe and if your test includes alcohol as a panel it can show up depending on how far apart your last use was from your test and ot...

I took 2 10mg flexerils because I was in pain. They are non narcotic muscle relaxers. But my concern is I dont have a prescription and I had a random ua the next day.will it show up in my ua, and if it does what does it show up as? ## Flexeril has been known to show false positives, but only for tricyclic antidepressants, which aren't substances that are tested for on standard drug screenings. Learn more Flexeril details here. Do you know what type of test was done? ## Its an 8 panel urinalysis ## I don't know if Flexeril will show in UA results for sure, but it's likely that it will. Having been prescribed Flexeril in the past..(in my opinion) it is a misnomer to state that it will not have the same or at least similar affects as a narcotic or opioid. Flexeril has "May ...
