Advice & Tips: I originally prescribed this medication to be taken TID (three times daily). I couldn't even keep my eyes open. I now take it most every night. I do find a difference when I don't take it. My muscles tighten up more than "normal". My muscles use to tighten up badly to the point I had no function in my legs at least 6 days out of the week.

Side effects: sleepiness
