Frequently Asked Questions About Flexeril Addiction
As a medication prescribed to treat muscle injuries, tenderness, pain and spasms, Flexeril has helped countless Americans work through short-term discomfort. While this drug is safe to use when taken as prescribed by a doctor, it can be dangerous if taken recreationally.
When taken in high doses, or along with other substances, Flexeril produces a mild euphoria, accompanied by feelings of sedation and relaxation. However, this experience is usually coupled with uncomfortable side effects, including elevated heart rate, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, confusion and nausea. These risks and adverse effects increase dramatically when Flexeril is combined with other substances, particularly alcohol. Alcohol and Flexeril use can cause memory loss, decreased motor skills, decreased cognitive function, and seizures. If excessive drowsiness and rapid heartbeat occur, you may be overdosing. It’s important to err on the side of caution if you’re experiencing these symptoms and contact a medical professional immediately.
