Can tapering off Flexeril cause any withdrawal symptoms?
Yes, you need to taper before you stop the drug.
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Understand your concern towards the withdrawal effects of flexiril as it should not be stopped abruptly.
It may cause withdrawal symptoms like nausea,lethargy, headache etc .
These are not so dangerous and appearance may depend upon dose and duration of drug intake.
It has to be tapered gradually by decreasing one forth of the dose in three days, half of the dose in another three days and can stop there after.
I would suggest you not to take atarax with this medication, as atarax should not be combined with muscle relaxant which has sedative effect such as flexiril.
Alcohol should be avoided while on these drugs.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Allegra increases sedation and hydroxyzine decreases sedation
I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards the combination of above drugs
It's better to taper Flexeril , and continue Atarax .
But atarax decreases sedation and allegra increases sedation.
So the combined effect is not advisable.
It also has some side effects.
So consult your doctor regarding this combination and follow accordingly.
Hope this information would help you.
It doesn't matter.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards the tapering of Flexeril.
The dose does not matter whether it is 2.5 mg or 5 mg,
You can just taper one forth the dose in three days and half of that in next three days and can stop.
Hope I have answered your query.
