  • Norflex - anyone use this?

    After I had an allergic reaction to nortriptyline my doctor ended up prescribing me norflex (orphenadrine citrate) a weak muscle relaxer instead of flexeril because it can be used for long term use. Just wondering if anyone has used this and any effects you can tell me about. It says to take it at night and can cause drowsiness OR insomnia. Boy hope I don't have insomnia! I seem to react that way to alot of meds. It would be nice if it helped me sleep instead.

    I'm a little confused because the pharmacist told me that just because I can't take one tri-cyclic doesn't mean I can't take another but you don't know unless you try. My doctor GP on the other hand told me if I'm allergic to one I'll be allergic to all. So now I'm confused.

    I did take the norflex last night. I wouldn't say I had insomnia but I slept lightly and tossed and turned all night. I suppose I should give it a few nights before asking to try flexeril instead. Anyone try both of these and had a different reaction to each?
