Discussions that mention skelaxin

Drug Interactions / Side Effects board


I'm on Mobic-1x a day, skelaxin- 3x a day and have prn's for ultram and ativan. What happens if I need to take all these in one day? Could I take all these the same day? My ultram is for pain, and ativan anxiety. I'm a total med phobiac but may have pain and anxiety the same day. Just hopefully not until someone answers this! :D

Well... let's put it this way:

Each of these drugs can cause depression of the central nervous system and the respiratory system. Taking them together will compound the situation.

Consult your doctor, but it seems extreme to be taking both the Skelaxin and the Ultram daily.
That's why I was asking. I'm rx'd the utram and ativan per my primary care Dr. A spine specialist just rx'd me the skelaxin and mobic. I told her about the ultram and she said that's fine. I didn't mention the ativan as I do take it rarely, but I thought what if? Thanks for you thoughts. Oh, the skelaxin is for decreasing my muscle spasms, and the ultram for pain. Mobic for inflammation I guess.
