I am given 3 10 mg of flexeril pills daily for my lower back Spasms. I take 2 at night with my Dr being aware that I do, but he would rather I didn't.
1 pill at night does not work for me. I don't take any during the day as they make me VERY sleepy.
My question is what do you take during the day for your back spasms?
My pain meds cover my pain to a do-able level but my spasms land me flat on my back (well you know what I mean) and able to do nothing until they go away. Ice, heat does not help, so I end up having to take a flexeril and then am knocked out for a few hours and my sleep times is all out of wack along with any plans I had for the day.
I always thought flexeril was a muscle relaxant. Is there a specific med for spasms? Or are spasms from muscles that need relaxed?
What med for spasm's do you take and how well does it work for you?
