  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle tension: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This med (Flexeril aka cyclobenzaprine) has the side-effect of making you very sleepy at first. Over time, this effect goes away for the most part. Also, this med is not meant to be taken every day - it quickly loses it's effectiveness when taken consistently. I only take it about twice a week or so. It doesn't make me sleepy anymore. I've heard that this med is slightly related to the family of tricyclic antidepressants, but I don't know much about that.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Drowsiness, Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence), Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: It worked GREAT! I love the relief from pain however I become totally dysfunctional, I will be out for about 18 hours when I take this. So when my pain is so severe I am in a very dark place I will take a half of one to knock myself out to keep my self safe. Pain relief but a the trade off is vertical time.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Be careful, it may may make you quite grogey. I took this many years ago and it seemed to work quite well. But I guess with all the fatigue catching up to me now....I just can't take any more. I only took one tab at night, which seemed to be good for sleeping, but not so good for getting started in the morning.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence)

May 20, 2010 (Started Jan 01, 1985)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have found that my use of Skelaxin 800 mg. twice a day was a much better treatment. I had asked the Doc to change because of the expense; but now the Skelaxin comes in a generic and costs half the price. I am now back on Skelaxin generic.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence)
