Thanks for writing to us.
The medicines like Flexeril are not likely to show on a drug test as this is not among the drugs of abuse. Usually it takes around 4-5 days for this to reduce to the undetectable levels. Please do not worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
