Were you looking for information on Flexeril? Flexoril is a common misspelling of Flexeril.
People with muscle spasms due to injuries, overuse, or other problems may find relief with Flexeril®. This prescription medication works to relieve muscle spasms only caused by problems in the muscles; it does not help with muscle spasms caused by problems in the brain or spinal cord.
This drug comes in tablet form and is typically taken three times a day. However, it should only be used for two or three weeks at a time. Possible side effects include dry mouth, dizziness, and fatigue. Before starting treatment with Flexeril, let your healthcare provider know about any medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements that you are taking. Also, be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have any other medical conditions, such as glaucoma, liver disease, or congestive heart failure.
