On this episode, I discuss cyclobenzaprine pharmacology. Cyclobenzaprine is an older skeletal muscle relaxant.
Cyclobenzaprine can have a significant number of anticholinergic side effects.
The anticholinergic side effects of cyclobenzaprine can include sedation, dry eyes, dry mouth, urinary retention, and confusion.
Cyclobenzaprine is not well tolerated in the elderly and cause more problems in that patient population.
Cyclobenzaprine has a similar structure to the Tricyclic antidepressants.
