Having gone thru 4 spinal surgeries, I ended up with failed back surgery syndrome. Previously my resultant spasms were treated with narcotic pain medications. Feeling frustrated that I was unable to be up on my feet for short periods of time, I dug out my Amrix ER. This has made such a difference in my stamina.

I get bouts of muscle spasms in my lower back but mostly in my upper back and neck area which more often than not turn into migraines. I do take Imitrex for the migraines but needed something for the muscle spasms. The doctor prescribed Amrix ER and it worked great! I felt a little quiet and tired but as long as it continues to work I can deal with my almost non-existent side effects.

Comment:
I was prescribed this for neck spasms caused by stress (I have a history of anxiety and depression) I am tolerant most things and have had Soma and Flexril in the past, no real issues, but with this stuff I turned MANIC, crying, angry, shaking, racing thoughts. I didnt put 2 and 2 together till about yesterday, I WILL NEVER take this stuff again.

Good news for all you folks out there that need this medication but can't afford it, it now comes in a generic. My MD told me to take it at dinner time because it takes 8 hours to start working. I did have one episode of tachycardia, but I don't know if it's this medication or another I'm taking. I will give this medication a fair chance and see what happens.
