2 Can patients take Flexeril and Ambien together As a muscle relaxant it is used together with physical therapy and other measures for.
In contrast to the benzodiazepines which non-selectively interact with all three subtypes of GABA –alpha receptors, zolpidem predominantly and selectively binds to the GABA – alpha-1 receptor. Zolpidem is a nonbenzodiazepine short-acting hypnotic substance that potentiates effects of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), the strongest inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, by binding to benzodiazepine receptors places located on the GABA-alpha receptors with chloride channel macromolecular complex.

Zolpidem is an imidazopyridine sedative-hypnotic which interacts with central benzodiazepine-receptors. They showed more active against the spontaneous contractions and those induced by KCl (60 mM) or by CaCl2 (0.01-10 mM) in Ca(2+)-free depolarizing medium than against acetylcholine (0.1 mM)-induced contractions. Both of them also showed more effectiveness against the tonic component of the acetylcholine-evoked contraction than against the phasic one. This observation let us speculate that the mechanism of action of zolpidem may be related to an action on Ca2+ influx through voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels due to an interaction with low affinity receptor located at the plasmalemma as has been suggested for diazepam. All the drugs tested were less powerful against contractions induced by oxytocin than against those induced by other agonists. The IC50 values obtained indicate similar behaviour of zolpidem and diazepam. To examine its effects on uterine smooth muscle we have compared with those obtained by diltiazem, papaverine and diazepam on different experimental models.

"Susie" forgot her Ambien for sleep, so "Jane" said, "Here, I have a muscle relaxer that you can take." I said, "Absoluy not, you can't take.
Does anyone else use or has previously used this muscle relaxer? I read that insomnia is a side effect and am trying to see if Ambien is.
