I have been taking Adderral for probably a little over a year now along with xanax when needed. What does flexeril do while taking adderall both in the morning together before work?

I've been taking a Flexril generic called Cyclobenzaprien on and off for a while for pain in lower back/ disc tears/spine desinigration. I use to take just about every night for few months till I started getting side effects such as depression, auditory hallucinations (sense of hearing things that were not said), paranoia, dry OMFG dry mouth ( I would drink several cans and cans of soda). This was after 3-4 straight months of use. Made by Cadista I think (horrible generic). I stopped taking this medicine abruptly and experienced my IBS flare up like a muther f-er. I take 240mg oxycodoneIR a day, yet my diarrhea spasms broke through badly, also gasy for 2-3 days.

I was given Flexeril when I broke my back. I don't remember anything after that. At first, I thought it was the trauma of the diagnosis. I now realize it was the medication I was given.

My husband of 44 years takes this for back pain. He is a very passive agressive person normally. When he is taking this he only comes out of shell to distribute the worse of his normal personality. He displays increased road rage and makes everyone his enemy. He stays away from those he doesn't want to see his behavior and goes into hiding. This is a serious drug given to the wrong person who can be abusive. His doctor agreed so he changed doctors.

Linda, I feel for you! sounds more like bi-polar. Have you considered removing yourself from this abusive situation? YOU come first; take care of YOU!!!

Sleeping ok?

Any crazy dreams or phantom spasms? I just made that word up.
I have both flexeril and percocet and I've been waking myself up almost every now through the night. I am trying to see which one of the two are doing this to me but have relinquished taking pain pills because of these night terrors.

I took 45mg of mirtazapine then was prescribed flexeril .
| Michelle
It caused me to get serotonin syndrome. luckily I realized this because I couldn't get an apt or call back from the doctor. so I stopped the flexeril and three days later finally was able to see a doctor. They said I had the syndrome and had to stop the mirtazapine immediately . It causes very bad confusion , no sleep and dialated my eyes for a week and a half. So it was difficult to see. Then many blood test to check all organs and ct for possible stroke or hemmorage. It was horrible and can cause death if not caught soon enough. please be careful with these medications.

RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) after taking Flexeril
| Holly Fox
I was detoxing off of opiates (cold turkey) and extremely uncomfortable. I was into my 3rd day of hard detox and took one of my boyfriend's Flexeril pills with onset of RLS almost immediately. It is a symptom I was dealing with already and had in the past when I detoxed, but this was so intense and sudden that there was no doubt that it was from the Flexeril. Obviously, I have detoxed from opiates and opioid derivatives for quite sometime and consider myself very knowledgeable on the subject, unfortunately. So, this particular incident has forever been a prevalent subject when discussing opiate detox for me.

I have RLS And am prescribed hydrocodone. It works with the central nervous system within the durra (the fluid) in your spine and calms it down. I've had the symptom since I started getting migraines 14 years ago. I've recently been on a forum and was informed that people have had back and neck pain and RLS that also accompany migraines.

RA and Lupus
| Tricia
I'm 54 years old. About a year ago I woke up one day and could not get out of bed because every muscle and bone in my body was on fire. This was the day after I hosted a baby shower and was on my feet all day. Fast forward. I was diagnosed with RA and possibly lupus. A couple of months prior to this episode I had a bald spot in the back of my head. I was also losing hair over my ears. I was put on plaquenil 400mg a day and entolac 1000 mg a day. The plaquenil made me crazy so now only take 200mg a day. I also take a 10mg flexeril at night every night up from 5mg not too long ago. All these medicines have the potential to cause hair loss but since I upped the flexeril to 10mg I'm noticing a lot more hair loss in the front especially right in the middle. Actually getting little bald areas and my part in the front is getting wider. So here I am on this website trying to find out what's causing this hair loss. I also recently started taking Omega 3 Krill 300 every day and cutting down to one endolac 500 mg a day instead of 1000 mg. Guess all we can do is experiment. Anyway, I'd rather be in pain than bald!
