I have taken coke and then taken muscle relaxer to help sleep after getting home. But you should not do it since it is very bad for your heart.

Motrin, which is ibuprofen, and Flexural, which is a muscle relaxer, can be taken together with rarely any side effects. You should contact your doctor or pharmacist to be sure it's safe for you.

I suffer from severe back spasms, and am prescribed xanax for them. Xanax is quite effective as a muscle relaxer, as is Valium, which is a little weaker than xanax. Anything you take as a muscle relaxer on top of the xanax probably wont be much added help, but there shouldn't be a problem with trying.

I've taken muscle relaxers when having laser tattoo removal and it was completely safe. Assuming you are not on any other type of medication, taking a muscle relaxer in order to take the edge off during laser hair removal should be fine.

yes. Flexeril is a muscle relaxer used for spasms and may have some pain relief if the pain is coming from spasms. Advil is for pain and inflammation and can be taken safely together as long as there are no allergies to the medications. Flexeril causes quite a bit of drowsiness.

Sertraline is Zoloft. It is an antidepressant.

You need to check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking them together. Also, it depends on what kind of muscle relaxer. Working in a pharmacy, I see a lot of Vicodins prescribed with Flexeril but not Darvocet and Flexeril. Be sure not to drink any alcohol (even cough syrup that contains it) because it might increase the effectiveness of the medication. And be sure not to take any extra Tylenol since it is already in the Darvocet. You can take Ibuprofen if needed.

first is antidepressant from modern medicine and another is herbal remedy. They should not be taken together. Results are unpredicatable in such cased. At times favourable but at times dengerous.

The should be perfectly fine. In fact, my dad who broke his back a couple years ago was forced to take a number of things in order to go to sleep after his surgery. These included AmbienCR, Percocet, and a muscle relaxant. (and maybe a little pot too. haha)He got more messed up from the pain killers than anything else. Just dont mix these with alcohol.I have taken AmbienCR with muscles relaxers together too, but it may depend on which muscle relaxer you are taking.

you can faint or have seizures. but mostly it CAN lead to death. any overdose of medicine can have its consequences. Absolutely yes.

You sure can. In fact both drugs are, often times, more effective when taken together. Just be sure to monitor intake, and not overdose. -Doc-

Yes. They can be taken together.

SAM-e should be fine with an antidepressant. It is going to interact with other hormone medications. Lexapro will be OK to take. Remember to take your Lexapro every day even if you don't feel you need it!
