My dad is currently on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicine. He recently pulled something in his back and can verily walk. Would it affect him if he was to take a muscle relaxer to relieve the pain. He wont go to the doctor for he dont want to miss work. Thanks for any suggestions and comment.
Call your pharmacist and ask them the question, tell them what he is taking for the bp and cholesterol and ask if it would be ok to take the muscle relaxer, give them the name of it and if there would be any interactions.
In the mean time your dad can try either heat from a heating pad and if that doens’t help he could try an ice pack, 10 minutes on 10 minutes off, he should try the ice first to try to alleviate the swelling, heat would be to relax the muscles. But its one or the other, not both ok, depending on which one makes him feel better.
he will have to be rather stationary for awhile to give this time to heal up.

I was a car accident and a car hit the passenger side of my car. I didn’t hit anything but my arm hurts.
I got a muscle relaxer and pain med from the Dr.
It really hurt before the Dr but now its a little better but till hurts.
I know it will take a long time to heal but how long? It was a severe strain.
tissues take 6 wks to heal;; but they don’t just ‘magically’ heal & then your problems are resolved;; we, as humans, tend to ignore malfunction to a limb because we just NEED to get back to what we were doing before;; do this right, & you’ll be feeling better in about 3-4 wks…not that it’s healing sooner, but just on time;; ya gotta get the info from your doc on when you can start activity to this arm & WHAT TYPE of activity you can perform;; gentle is the key..progression is the smart way, & not re-injuring will allow you to heal on time;; wish I could help ya more, but your doc knows the specs..contact him with all questions you have..his medical assistants can help you too…good luck!! but slow & steady always wins the race..oh, & btw, it helps to assist this arm against gravity..so if you are lifting it in any way, shape or form, help with the other arm until you can get this pain down..ESP under your covers @ night…good luck!!

Please don’t tell me to ask my doctor. I had back surgery 12 years ago and have been to many docs. None of which has helped. Please don’t tell me to stretch, do palates, etc. I’ve tried everything non-chemical already. I was wondering if anyone has personal experience. Every muscle relaxer I’ve tried just puts me to sleep. And pain relievers just make me really awake.
I have tried everything under the sun that’s over the counter.
I’m on tramadol, darvocete, and nabumetone. only the tramadol makes me really tired, the darvocete seems to work and the nabumetone is a good anti-inflammatory. i also just got done using the 6 day prednisone (steroid) pack…those are my suggestions.

my back hurts really bad and it feels like theres a knot in my muscle
i think my stupid oversized boobs are at fault here
i took 1000Mg of ibuprofen like an hour ago and its not working
so i was thinkin about poppin one of me madres muscle relaxer pills
there called carisoprodol
i just wanted to make sure im not gonna like tweak out if i do so
yeah im gonna do it
but thanks for your help
immmmm fine so far
no worries iv done more dangerous things
ill let you know if i die though
Taking 1000MG of ibuprofen is dangerous, lie on your back and rest I’m sure it’ll kick in soon enough if it hasn’t started already. NEVER mix drugs, and always talk with a pharmacist or doctor, i know Yahoo Answers can be very helpful, but we’re talking about something that can cause death due to drug overdose, don’t trust YA! for that.

I found some pills, V 2410 carisoprodol, and decided to take one. Now I LOVE vicodin, but i’m curious as to how this differs from that and if you think one is better than the other!
Well, first of all, Carisoprodol is a generic muscle relaxer. The two medications are for 2 complete different things. Sounds like you are taking them for, not the right reasons. You’re not going to LOVE them when you get hooked. I’d quit while you are ahead and don’t create a problem. Also, take too many and you could OD just like any other drug.

My dentist gave me Carisoprodol (a muscle relaxer) for my tight jaw muscles, and my doctor gave me Xanax for my anxiety. Can I take these together or will it not be good if I do?
It would have moderate interactions at most.
Long list here but in alphabetical order.
Type in carisoprodol and it will list all the drugs that it has interactions with.

what exactly is this? is it like xanex? i found one on my floor and i looked it up but got no good info on it. thanks
Its like a muscle relaxer/painkiller.
xanax is for anxiety and panic attacks.
But you may have scored take it.

it is a kick butt muscle relaxer and my drug of choice when I have spasms from arthritis.
i don’t use it often because it makes me feel boneless, which is the whole point I guess.
It is also called Soma and is definitely a narcotic. Most doctors are very reluctant to write much of a prescription for it and I am lucky to get a 4-5 day supply no matter how much I hurt but it works for me very well.
