  • When I told friends at work about the experience, several told me they had good results with the drug too

      When I injured my back at work a couple of years ago, the pain was excruciating. A pulled muscle led to my entire back locking up and kept me flat on the bed for three days. My doctor wrote me a prescription for Flexeril,or cyclobenzaprine HCL, a muscle relaxer.

      I was to take three 5 milligram a day for two weeks or until my back had healed a bit. I did not notice much difference after the first dose, but that may have been because of the

      activity of getting in and out to see the doctor.

      After I had the second dose, two things happened. I got sleepy and relaxed, and my muscles finally eased up a bit.

      I was able to walk, slowly, on my own. I rested for much of that day and the next day after taking the third dose, although I was much too relaxed for my own good, I was almost free from the gripping pain.

      The painkillers I had taken did not accomplish this, only this ...

      • Godsend muscle relaxer. When I told friends at work about the experience, several told me they had good results with the drug too.

        When I injured my back again last year, I asked for it by name. Again, the pain eased and I was able to gently get back to my routine.

        I did not have side effects from Flexeril other than the relaxed, sleepy feeling, and that seemed to clear a bit once I had it in my system for a few days anyway.

        It didn’t interfere with anything I was doing or cause me to oversleep.

        I just “chilled” a lot. I’ve started having some chronic back problems and now I have a standing prescription for this drug to help me get through painful flare ups.

        I honestly don’t know what I would do without it. If you have any kind of muscle spasm issues, and can tolerate the sleepiness for a few days or so, this is a medication well worth trying.

        It has been an absolute lifesaver for me.
