I suffer from DDD. I have had 7 different back surgeries over the last 15 years. I havent found a medicine that helps me. I have tried robaxion, flexirill, zanaflex, baclofen, skelixan,and klopnin. Is there anyone out there that works? I'm have surgery next week and I'm trying to see if there is something out there that works.


  • I found soma to be helpful.. but only for a few weeks. Same with valium.

    Another surgery in the near future. I am 26 years old.

    Current Meds- Norco 7.5/325, Cymbalta 60mg, Gabapentin, Adderall 20mg
  • I went through 7 lumbar surgeries in a short period of time and it left me with terrible back spasms. I went through trying many of the oral MS meds and none really worked. So the doc did a series of Botox injections into my lower back every 3 months for just over a year. It allowed everything to heal without trying to rip itself apart.

    Hope your doc finds a way to help you.
