What is Cyclobenzaprine and Can I Get it Online?

Anybody who has suffered from back spasms knows how crippling they can be. Other muscle spasms can be just as painful. Maybe you’ve heard about cyclobenzaprine before. What is it, and can you get it online?

What is Cyclobenzaprine?

Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer that helps stop muscle spasms and reduce pain from an injury. Cyclobenzaprine is the generic name. It’s also sold under the brand names of Flexeril, Fexmid, and Amrix.

It’s not available over the counter; you need a prescription for it. One of the benefits of cyclobenzaprine is that it is not a narcotic and comes with less risk of abuse or addiction, although it should be used for no more than two to three weeks at a time.

What is it Used to Treat?

Cyclobenzaprine relaxes muscles to relieve stiffness, pain, or discomfort as a result of injuries or muscle strains. It’s usually prescribed with a recommendation for rest and physical therapy to heal the injury. It’s only intended to be used for two to three weeks at a time while an injury heals and isn’t meant to be a long-term pain reliever.

Cyclobenzaprine Side Effects

Like any medication, there is a risk of side effects with cyclobenzaprine, including:

  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn
  • Heart problems (fainting, confusion, heart palpitations)
  • Nausea
  • Serotonin syndrome (agitation, hallucinations, nausea, seizures)

If you are experiencing any of these side effects you should talk to a doctor to see if you should consider an alternative treatment.

  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)
  • Antidepressants
  • Guanethidine
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
