Hi Ed,

Although the dose she took exceeds the recommended 30 mg/day, respiratory depression is not a known side effect of Cyclobenzaprine. Combining it with alcohol will potentiate the effects of drowsiness. Alcohol, however, can cause respiratory depression and so she should be monitored for overdose and seek emergency medical attention in the event that she drank toxic amounts.

Regards,

Dr.Bridget,PharmD,CGP

Her last drink was at 11:30 but she was extremely intoxicated. Dhe took the pills 3 hrs ago. She is just now starting to get sleepy but is still very coherent and in conversation. Should we still seek medical attention ?
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 1 year ago

Since she does not have signs of alcohol toxicity (confusion; difficulty remaining conscious; vomiting; seizures; trouble with breathing; slow heart rate; clammy skin; dulled responses, such as no gag reflex; and extremely low body temperature), she will not require medical attention.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
