I went to my regular pcp today b/c of the horrible flair up I'm in right now and he gave me a new muscle relaxer called Amrix...it's supposed to last 24 hours and he told me to take it at night b/c it causes big drowsiness. Does anyone take this and what do you think? I've been in almost constant spasm for about 3-4 days and my zanaflex and skelaxin hasn't touched the spasms. Maybe I'm used to them?
He also upped my pain routine from oxycondone 10mg twice a day with break thru endocet to oxycontin 20mg twice a day with break thru endocet. So far, I can't tell I've taken any narcotics in about 4 days since my flair up. I was hoping for lyrica like we talked about, but he wanted to stop the spasms and said we'd add it next time. He's very nice and I'm sure he will. All this stuff is getting pricey though
BTW, is oxycontin or mscontin better and which is cheaper...I know kadian is very $$$$, right? He mentioned that one other time, and I'm so happy he didn't Rx it!
