He doesn't seem to be working right now. May I take your question?
I take many pills for high blood pressure. Dr. David has advised me that the Alprazolam and Flexeril have some negative reaction. I have taken the xanax since 1988. The flexeril for about a year and just found out it was not good together as there may be an interaction. I knocked down the flexeril to 2.5 a day instead of 5.mg twice a day. i was recently taking 500 mg of Nabutone twice a day for neck spurs. i have recently reduced my intake of these pills because I was starting to sleep more and forgetting. Since i have reduce the mg's i am feeling better and more aleart.These deductions in the amounts I am taking are working so is it ok to do this. The only thing i see is a slight increase in BP.
Nabumetone causes drowsiness (1% to 3% of people). If your pain is controlled well, it is okay to take it once a day.
This is Dr. David
Nabumetone should be dosed just once a day.
usually it is started at 1000mg a day, but if 500mg works for you, then take that dose
and let your doctor know you are taking it just once a day.
it can cause drowsiness, so taking it once at night time can be better
let me know if you have questions
