    It is the only muscle relaxant that helps my severe spasms in my jaw, back, and spine. It is getting harder to find a physician who will prescribe it though.

    Aside from sometimes making me sleepy I haven't had any problems with the drug. If I'm wide awake then they don't make me sleepy or drowsy, but if I am physically exhausted or slightly tired then they will usually help me to sleep pretty quickly.

    The dr just switched me a few weeks ago, it makes me sleepy a lot faster but it seems to be working better. I can only take it at night unless I'm in so much pain I have to stay home and take it but their is no way I can drive on it
