Hi everyone, I posted this on the Fibro board as well because that is what I have but got no response so maybe it belongs here? I have been taking flexeril on and off for over a year now - along with some other meds. The dosage prescribed is 10mg up to 3 times per day. Usually I took 1/2 pill in the am and then a whole one at night. A couple of weeks ago I got sick and needed to take a prescription cough syrup (tussionex) So I stopped the flexeril ( I have done this before with no problem) Anyway for about a week I experienced horrible heart palpitations along with migraine, dizzines and just feeling awful - then stopped the cough meds and waited about 2 more days and took flexeril again but only 1/2 pill at night - first 2 nights were fine but then on the 3rd night about 2 hours after taking it my heart started to jump around a bit - lasted about a half hour. Oh I should mention that I also take xanex and that did help sometimes during my horrible week. Anyway now I am afraid to take the flexeril again and it really helps my muscle spasms. Anyone have any idea what happened ??
