Episode 285: Cyclobenzaprine – flexing the data around its use in acute back pain

In episode 285, James and Mike look at the evidence around the use of a very old drug, cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), for acute back pain. We find it does have some effect but it also produces sedation etc as would be expected from a tricyclic antidepressant. We remind listeners to use low doses and not to give it three times a day.
