Cyclobenzaprine From Aurobindo Pharm

4 posts in this topic


My Pharmacy just changed suppliers on one of my meds. The new suplier is Aurobindo Pharm. and I am wondering if anyone here has taken it, without any issues.

I have been trying to reach them for about an hour, been transfered 3 times and they end up transfering me somewhere else. :angry: No one seems to be able to give me a response, so I am weary to take it.

It is the generic for Flexeril. The pill itself looks completely different a lot bigger,orange color, triangular on the right, and straight on the left, with a letter "D" and a number 87 on one side. It is the 5 mg.

You might want to check I find it helpful in checking various medications

Hi Sylvia,

Yes I checked there first, but wanted to make sure with the actual company that makes the medicine.

On the glutenfreedrugs website it lists flexeril and cyclobenzaprine as gluten-free, but on the generic it only lists 3 manufacturers, and Aurobindo not being one of them, I wondered.

Good news however, they called me an hour ago, and it turns out that in fact it is gluten-free.

Thanks again,

Glad you found out it is gluten-free, Miriam! In very rare instances (like an excruciating toothache with a scrip for an antibiotic and vicodin), I've also asked to see the printout of the meds to check the ingredients as I had just come from the dentist and needed something fast. Not my preferred way of doing it but I didn't have time for the pharmacist to check with the manufacturer.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne. Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
