Drug Mode of Action ::
Cyclobenzaprine, a centrally-acting skeletal muscle relaxant, is structurally related to tricyclic antidepressants, thus they share similar properties. It acts on the brain stem, decreasing tonic-somatic motor activities influencing both the ? and ? motor systems. It is used as an adjunct in the symptomatic treatment of painful muscle spasms associated with musculoskeletal conditions.
Drug Interactions ::
Plasma concentration may be increased with the use of cimetidine, diltiazem, disulfiram, methylphenidate, ritonavir, and verapamil. Side-effects are increased by adrenaline, amiodarone, general anesthetics, SSRIs, antihistamines, antimuscarinics, antipsychotics, anxiolytics and hypnotics, clozapine, disopyramide, diuretics, flecainide, MAOIs, moclobemide, moxifloxacin, nefopam, nicorandil, noradrenaline, phenothiazine, pimozide, procainamide, propafenone, quinidine, selegiline, sibutramine, sotalol, terfenadine, thioridazine, and tramadol. Effects of adrenergic neurone blockers, clonidine, barbiturates, nitrates, and primidone are reduced while effects of baclofen, opioid analgesics, and thyroid hormones are enhanced with concomitant use of cyclobenzaprine. Carbamazepine and rifampicin may increase metabolism of cyclobenzaprine. Effects may be antagonized by oestrogens. Avoid use with brimonidine, entacapone, artemether with lumefantrine, or sibutramine. CNS effects may be enhanced by other CNS depressants.
