I have been suffering sleepless nights for around 4 years with back and hip pain. I could never lay down for very long. This drug helped me right away and I finally got atleast 5-6 hours of sleep. It seems to wear off after around 6 hours, tho. I have not experienced dizziness or any other side effect yet but have only been taking for two weeks. I am just glad I can get some sleep.

Treatment for lower back sprain. Relieve spasms a little. Took it before bedtime. I kept waking up 2 hours after falling asleep. After 3 days, experienced blurred vision. Doctor pulled me off medicine. Still have blurred vision in left eye after 24 hours.

This medication works well for spasm in my lower back due to a terrible car wreck. I have noticed I am losing some hair after taking for about 1 year. I also have nightmares some and it has made me sleep walk.
