    I was recently privy to the treatment of a patient with cyclobenzaprine overdose. This article details very well the protocols used in the management of such patients. There is very little data regards the management of such patients and this article certainly adds to the body of literature in this field. I must convey my regards to the author(s) for such a presentation.

  2. Need for greater restraint in prescribing skeletal muscle relaxants specially to the elderly

    I would like to add to this article by pointing out the potential toxicity of skeletal muscle relaxant at theraputic doses, especially in the elderly population. I am interested in geriatric medicine, as guest faculty at UCSF we have seen a spate of confusion and agitation associated with the prescription of this class of drugs recently. Poly pharmacy in the elderly is something that needs to be looked at. This class of agents in particular can be associated with vast manifestations.
