Cyclobenzaprine HCL is a muscle relaxant used in the treatment of muscle discomfort and pain caused by sprains, strains and other muscle injuries.
It works by forcing the central nervous system to release certain substances into the body, so that the muscle can be relaxed.
Cyclobenzaprine HCL comes as an oral tablet to be taken two to four times per day for less than three weeks, or as suggested by your doctor.
Common side effects of this medicine include dizziness, drowsiness, upset stomach, fatigue, dry mouth, blurred vision and a bad taste in the mouth.
Cyclobenzaprine HCL may be used to treat other medical conditions, as prescribed by your doctor.
