Cyclobenzapr And Gabapentin?

Cyclobenzapr And Gabapentin?

Can I take cyclobenzapr (muscle relaxer) and gabapentin together? I am in some major pain tonight and I have some cyclobenzapr on hand and would like to take one.

Yes, sorry was going to answer this last night and passed out! Gabapentin is the main med for your Fibro. It has been around for a long time and works like Lyrica at a fraction of the cost. Downside to gabapentin is you have to take more pills because it's not as potent as Lyrica. Lyrica is super expensive though. The muscle relaxer is exactly what it says. To calm your muscles. That I believe is the generic of flexeril. Should be a tiny orange pill? I have found that is one of the main muscle relaxers prescribed and makes you very tired. If you can, try taking that at night. So I take gabapentin three times a day. And if needed the muscle relaxer before bed. I also take ultam 100MG two times daily. You should always be informed by your doctor though? Let me know if you have any other questions. How many times a day do you take it?
