How Does Fexmid Work?
Cyclobenzaprine is a central nervous system relaxant. What it does is it relaxes the nerves to reduce nerve impulses from the muscles shooting towards the brain. In effect, this eliminates pain and relieves muscle spasms that cause it.
Fexmid Dosage and Treatment
Fexmid is not a chronic or maintenance medication, so it can’t be used to treat long term conditions like cerebral palsy. Your doctor will likely only prescribe the medication for a short period of time until the spasms subside. Use of Fexmid for periods longer than 2-3 weeks is highly discouraged.
Do not exceed the prescribed dosage amount, and do not change the dosage schedule as instructed by your doctor. If you feel that you might need to extend the prescription to achieve optimal results, consult your doctor and inquire whether it would be possible to continue the use of Fexmid for your case.
The dosage amount for Fexmid changes from person to person. Depending on your condition, your doctor might prescribe an initial dose of 5 mg, three times a day. For more severe cases, doctors may increase the dose from 5 mg to 7.5 or 10 mg, three times daily.
For individuals who are hepatically impaired or for elderly patients, the dosage frequency may be adjusted to just twice daily. The specific schedule or time of each intake may vary.
Benefits of Fexmid
Fexmid helps relieve the pain associated with sudden onset muscle spasms that result from fatigue or muscle overuse. In some cases, doctors may also use Fexmid to relieve pain caused by certain musculoskeletal disorders.
