Today my doctor wrote me a script for 8 ten mg tablets a day I cant find info on the max dose of this drug. Before i try this can someone tell me what dose is it toxic :&


  • hello pg. my script used to be take 3 -10mg at bed this was long long ago, and i remember the pharmacy man saying something about taking 3 are you sure patsy he even called doc office to be sure. now my script is take 2 -10 mg prn . so i would think 8 is alot ...patsy ps read your other post -and must say you had a heck of a day at doctors!
  • pg-I was on flexeril. I was only taking one 10 mg tablet and my mouth was so dry I could barely swallow. I stopped. Just my personal side effect..Have you used it in the past? I am not clear on dosing but the pharmacy/pharmacist may be able to discuss the toxicity questions before you fill the prescription..??..jade

  • Ive been using it with moderate relief in the form of 3-10mg tablets a day but today she upped it to (As many as 8)
  • that the pharmacy read the docs hand writting wrong. MAybe he wrote it for 3 and it appeared to be an 8?!?! CALL you DOC before taking your meds. When I had Flexeril it was 3 a day
  • I appreciate the advice melissa but she gave me a full med consultation and reviewed the script with me. and told me to use that amount (My dr that is)
  • advertisement
  • how many pills did you get in the script bottle?
  • That is crazy. Flexeril didn't really work all that great with me so I stopped taking it. Some people feel that it is pretty powerful but for me it did nothing. 8 per day does seem like a lot.
    I have done some googling and this is what I have found so far:
    "How Taken - Flexeril is 10 mg tablet to be taken orally with food. Usual adult dose is a 10 mg tablet three times a day. Maximum amount of Flexeril usage is 60 mg per day. Do not change the dosage without medical consultation"
  • I apologize everyone the new doseage is 60 mg a day . Thanks for your input melissa !
  • That doseage sounds better.
  • Sorry about the confusion everyone. Mods feel free to lock this thread down or delete it. I appreciate everyones input very much!
