I need a muscle relaxer that actually works.......
Before my operation I was on Soma 350mg at night before bed. This helped a lot but only for a few months. After that It seemed to not work as well.
Post op I was on valium 5mg 2x a day... This helped a lot but docs don't seem to want to prescribe it for any longer than a few weeks.
After that I was on flexeril 10mg at night and that dried me out so bad I had a nose bleed so I stopped taking it.
After that (NOW) I was prescribed skelaxin 800mg 3x a day. I have been taking it for about 3 weeks. It seems to help maybe 20%
I need something else... something a lot stronger. The skelaxin is ok for when I have to work but when Im not working or when I am going to bed I need something a lot stronger. I really liked the valium because even if i only took it for example today... it seemed to even help into the next day.
I am going to tell my doctor the skelaxin is barely helping and I need something stronger. What other muscle relaxers are out there?
