Discussions that mention cyclobenzaprine

Pain Management board

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]My daughter also struggles. She actually has bi-polar disorder. Benzodiazepines (like Valium, klonapin, even flexeril--"i.e. cyclobenzaprine") are Central Nervous System depressants. Narcotics on the weaker end of the spectrum--like Darvon, or Vicoden, hit some of those same receptors. In reality the more "pure" BIG GUN narcotics such as Morphine, are supposed to be "Euphorics". For "normal" people, when they wear off it's no big deal. For folks with addictive tendencies, they tend to become angry, irritable or depressed--and/or drug seeking. My daughter has similar problems managing pain killer useage. 50% of people with mood disorders suffer from addictions. My daughter utlizes Ultram when she suffers from pain because she can't risk addiction. [/FONT]
