Flexeril and lidocaine

Postby TATT » Sat Nov 30, 2013 12:50 am

I just spoke with a fibro lady in America via Facebook, she is on Flexeril which is a muscle relaxant. Lidocaine lotion for pain, she says that's expensive but recommends.

Anyone here know of this ?

Just been reading about these drugs and they are not license for people with fibromyalgia in the uk.

Would be worth a try if they could used them in this country


But both are highly addictive

The Lidocaine cream is actually Emla cream which you can buy over the internet for the purpose of numbing an area prior to getting a tattoo. Hope this helps if you want to try it .

I have taken Flexeril many times over the years. It is a muscle relaxer. It really did not help with the fibro.

I use Arnica gel and it really helps on my hips, hands, legs and knees.
