Can i take benadry along with relafen?
im taking a muscle relaxer called relafen its not to strong but i have this mad alergies that are annoying me and i was wondering if i can take 150mg of benadryl what i usualy take the relafen is 750mg and i took it about to hours ago Asked by Anastacia Niewiadomski 1 year ago.

Relafen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that works in the same way as ibuprofen. it relaxes uterine smooth muscle but it does not relax the striated muscles of your arms and legs. you may take Benadry with it but you may notice increased drowsiness. the usual dose of Benadryl is 25 to 50mg 3-4 times daily. do not take 150mg of Benadryl at one time. the usual dose of Relafen is 1000 to 1500mg daily. if you're taking 750mg daily, you may be under dosing yourself.

Relafen with Ulcerative Colitis?
So the doctor prescribed relafen to my friend, and I was looking up some information about the drug.

So the doctor prescribed relafen to my friend, and I was looking up some information about the drug. He gave it to her in place of vicodin because he said she would get addicted to vicodin if she kept taking it. My friend has ulcerative colitis. All of the pages of information I am finding about this relafen drug say that people with stomach ulcers shouldn't take it, and a few specifically mention ulcerative colitis. I keep asking her to call the advice nurse to double check before she takes any, but she won't. Does anyone with any knowledge of this drug or situation have a suggestion? Thanks in advance. Answered by Shellie Harpold 1 year ago.

Relafen was a drug prescribed me and I have a stomach ulcer. It made me ill. Your friend needs to talk to her Colitis doctor to see if he/she even wants her to be on this drug. Vicodin is a sissy pain pill and I don't see how anyone can get addicted to that. I took Morphine for 4 years and was able to stop. Pain medication really depends on what the pain is for. There are so many side effects to drugs, but not all people get all the side effects. Though with a very serious problem such as Ulcerative Colitis, I don't think I would want to take any chances. My husband has colitis issues and I know just how horrible it can be. If it were me, I would want to seek out other possible methods to relieve where the pain is coming from before taking a bunch of drugs. vicodin is one of the weakest pain relieving drugs there is. It ranks with the Ultram and Ultracet, Darvon and crap like that. Answered by Guadalupe Defouw 1 year ago.

First of all, if it truly is "ulcerative colitis" it is an inflammatory condition of the COLON, hence "colitis". It does not involve the stomach. Since it is an inflammatory condition, it is treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, but NOT Relafen. It makes sense to use Relafen, but there are other drugs that more specifically work to reduce inflammation in the colon. This is because the tablet is specially coated and does not release drug until it reaches the first part of the colon. Relafen releases drug into the stomach and small intestine and is likely much less effective for his condition. I would question this doctor about treatment with a drug that is better suited to his condition. Answered by Kerry Farenbaugh 1 year ago.

I am a pharmacy tech student.. Relafen can cause ulcers and kidney damage.. It is non-sterodial anti-inflammatory drug(NSAID).. It is used to treat minor pain and arthritis( rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis,ect) Yes, that is true people who have stomach ulcers should not take this medication... But ulcerative colitis does not affect the stomach... Answered by Ola Strausser 1 year ago.

I am not going to comment on these drugs but can suggest you something to cure your friend. Tell your friend to take Isabgul after every meal without fail and at night before going to bad takehalf grounded Methi powder only tip of the spoon every day . within a week he wil show great improvement.

Can flexeril and relafen be taken together?
Asked by Katrice Zarlengo 1 year ago.

It is perfectly fine to take Relafen (nabumetone) and Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) together. It is actually very common for an NSAID (Relafen) and a muscle relaxant (Flexeril) to be used together for pain. Just make sure you follow the prescription and make sure you talk to your doctor if you are using Relafen long term. It is typically safe to use for an acute problem or as needed but using it continuously has some significant risks. It is also best to avoid alcohol when using Relafen and Flexeril. Answered by Velma Bowron 1 year ago.

It all depends on what you are really having to use these medications as one is a muscle relaxant and one is an anti-inflammatory.So, if you have nothing serious,don't mix them as you can develop a tolerance to them and when you will really need them, they won't work.If you tell me a little about the symptoms, them I will see if it is write or not to use them together.

Does the drug Relafen produce a high?
I have a sprained ankle and my doctor prescribed me Relafen to take. Tomorrow, I have to present a speech at work for a conference, and I'm afraid to take it if I'll feel symptoms like a pain killer would give me. Should I take my medicine in the morning or wait until after my meeting? Asked by Nadene Stower 1 year ago.

Relafen is a painkiller which can be taken on an as-need basis. Your doctor probably prescribed this for your axle to simultaneously reduce the swelling. If you take this drug with food in the morning, you should be fine. Answered by Eugenio Gubler 1 year ago.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RELAFEN (anti-inflammatory) or Motrin for pain relief?
what is the difference in results or affects between Motrin versus Relafen for back pain? Is one more effective than the other? Relafen longer acting but would Motrin or alike give faster relief for pain at times? Asked by Deanne Ringold 1 year ago.

They are both part of the same class of drugs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory). One is longer lasting. Some people will get relief from Motrin (Ibuprofen) and some will love Relafen. It is truly individual so try different ones (including Naproxen and others) and find out which works best for you. Motrin works best for me but does not for my wife. Trial and error will tell you which is the best for you. Good luck Answered by Ellis Earnshaw 1 year ago.
