Comment:
I had a head/neck injury. The muscles in my neck and shoulders hurt all the time. The doctor had me try Skelaxin. After a few weeks, the pain got better to where I could actually function again.

Happy to find skeleton helps me. Dr says 3x day every eight hours. Difficult to keep that schedule but works well anyway. No drowsy or drunk feeling like flexeril.

Comment:
take 1/2 pill (100 mg) with advil when my lower back goes into spasm. Usually in a few days the cyclic pain issues are gone. I think most may be taking too much to be effective for them. Less is more for sure.

Comment:
Have had severe back.neck,and neck muscle spasms for 35 years and have yet to find a muscle relaxant that works with the exception of Zanaflex which helps but doesn't last very long. Not effective and no side effects either.
