cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride tablets, usp rx only
indications & usage
Cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride tablets, USP are indicated as an adjunct to rest and physical therapy for relief of muscle spasm associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions.
Improvement is manifested by relief of muscle spasm and its associated signs and symptoms, namely, pain,
tenderness, limitation of motion, and restriction in activities of daily living.
Cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride tablets, USP should be used only for short periods (up to two or three weeks)
because adequate evidence of effectiveness for more prolonged use is not available and because muscle
spasm associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions is generally of short duration and specific
therapy for longer periods is seldom warranted.
Cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride tablets, USP have not been found effective in the treatment of spasticity
associated with cerebral or spinal cord disease, or in children with cerebral palsy.
Hypersensitivity to any component of this product.
Concomitant use of monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors or within 14 days after their discontinuation.
Hyperpyretic crisis seizures, and deaths have occurred in patients receiving cyclobenzaprine (or structurally similar tricyclic antidepressants) concomitantly with MAO inhibitor drugs.
drug abuse & dependence
Pharmacologic similarities among the tricyclic drugs require that certain withdrawal symptoms be considered when cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride is administered, even though they have not been reported to occur with this drug. Abrupt cessation of treatment after prolonged administration rarely may produce nausea, headache, and malaise. These are not indicative of addiction.
