Hey everyone! I am having one hell of a flare up these last few days and need to know which one of my muscle relaxers is the strongest.
I have:
Baclofen - 10mg
Methocarbonal - 750mg
Cyclobenzapr - 5-10mg.

I also have valium 5-10mg.

In addition I am taking a Xanax .5 when I go to sleep. (I use the xanax as my sleeping pill).

Thanks for any help!!!!

  • Oh poor you!! :( I'm on Methocarbonal, same mg's as you and they have not helped with my really bad flare ups. However, we're all different and it's probably best to check with your doctor or a pharmacist who can best advise you. I hope it lets up soon.

    As Paul said, contact your pharmacist and also talk to your doctor.
    Flexeril and Zanaflex are stronger than Rhobaxin(Methocarbonal), but then again, different medications react differently for people.

  • I was having SUCH a bad day and my PM has it prescribed for me to take a muscle relaxer at night on top of the xanax. I am too "out of it" when I do...and have saved those nights for those really rough nights. However last night was the rough nights multiplied by 100...so I was desperate as to which one of my muscle relaxers would have really relaxed those darn muscles in my back.
    I ended up just taking .75 of my xanax rather than the .5m.
    It got me to sleep - but I was tossing and turning all night.
    As if it didnt make matters worse - I just got a new mattress and I HATE it. It is killing me and this is mattress #4 so I am too shy to bring back yet another one...kwim?!?!
    I may leave this battle to my dear hubby.

    Hope everyone has a pain free day!!
    Thanks again.
