Comment:
I get severe back spasms, so bad that I can't sit or drive for 8 weeks. This medication does help a lot, but it makes me sleepy so I cut the pill in half often when using. Mine are not coated though so they taste terrible even though I'm swallowing them.

Great if you don' mind sleeping! Even after telling Dr I am sensitive to muscle relaxants in small dosages, I was out very quickly with this one. I also woke up feeling a bit disoriented

Comment:
I am only on the medication once a day for muscle spasms and pain. Since the medication is not in my system all day it is not very effective. Anyone one else have the problem of only being prescribed 1 a day and not having much relief from it?
