Took this medication for middle back spasms for a whole week, it was totally ineffective. Pill are to large, hard to swallow, side effects were nausea, pain in my stomach. Waste of money not to mention felt worse than before I took them.

My calves have hurt with spasms for a year. I had been taking Soma 350 (muscle relaxant) for relief. I have been taking the Skelaxin for 2 days and my legs don't hurt at all! Amazing!
