Discussions that mention cyclobenzaprine

Pain Management board

I have degenerative disk disease and I am currently on Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine), 10mg 3 times daily. It worked really well for about a week, then i started taking it less as the pain began to subside.

Today my back hurt worse than ever, so i took another flexeril. no relief. then I took another 4 hours later and got no relief again. Several times during the last couple of weeks I have experienced mood swings and become extremely irritable while on flexerin. Nothing is going wrong, but I feel completely depressed and I cant really do anything about it. has anyone had a similar experience on flexeril?
