Comment:
Had a total reverse shoulder and left elbow replacement 4 years ago and was on 30mg MS every 12 hrs for breakthrough pain and 25mcg od Fentanyl for round the clock pain management. I was slowly weaned off with good results. Recently the pain started coming back and I take 10mg Roxicodone without Tylenol with 10mg of Flexeril 3x daily and the results are great !!

Comment:
I am a C-6 (incomplete) spinal cord injury. One dose of the pill is enough to stop my spasms. However, the drug leaves sleepy 24 hours. Use it very sparingly.

Comment:
I have bad arthritis in my neck, and unfortunately have to use the computer a lot which aggravates it and causes muscle spasms throughout my neck and back. I got 3 shots of cortisone at the onset of this condition five years ago, which helped enormously, and was then on a huge amount of oxycodone for 18 months, as well as 30 mg of flexeril daily to calm spasming.
