Flexeril Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Flexeril Pneumonia Reviews

Sat, 09 Jan 2010
My mother, 87, was given Flexeril for a tight shoulder muscle. After 7 pills is having hallucinations. Mentally sharp otherwise. Last pill was on 12/29/2009. How long can we expect these? She is an invalid.

anxiety, anger, and exhaustion
Mon, 18 Apr 2011
I was taking Flexeril after I was diagnosed with a rib contusion following heavy lifting. I am taking Lexapro, Adderall and Trazadone already for A.D.D. depression and sleep deprivation. The Flexeril made me extremely tired, irritable, so much so that after a 24 hour period, I was nearly suicidal, possibly homicidal. I threw the medication away after reoccuring this feeling several times.
