Flexeril Withdrawal

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) treats muscle spasms and relieves pain from sprains, strains, and other muscle injuries.1 People who stop using Flexeril after a significant period of time may experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are not dangerous, but they can be very uncomfortable. Treatment usually consists of tapering the dose, but people who abuse the drug or other drugs should seek help at a rehabilitation program.

Flexeril Withdrawal Symptoms

Flexeril withdrawal symptoms include nausea, headache, and lethargy.2 The severity of withdrawal symptoms depends on:6

  • The dose.
  • How long the person used the drug.
  • Whether the person took Flexeril with other medications or drugs (people may mix Flexeril with alcohol, barbiturates, and other central nervous system depressants to enhance the effects of these drugs).

Treatment for Flexeril Addiction

People who have been abusing Flexeril or combining it with other substances should consider an addiction treatment program to help them quit Flexeril. People who were prescribed the drug should speak to their physician about discontinuing it.

Flexeril addiction treatment centers can help you understand why you compulsively use Flexeril or other drugs. Treatment often includes detox, individual and group therapy, medical supervision, and aftercare planning.
