    It makes me sleepy so I only take it at night but unless it is cold, it works well for me. In the cold it does not work as well. I take it for muscle cramps due to orthopedic surgery that left me unable to stretch some of my muscles adequately.

    Unfortunately my pain on my lower back is getting worse. I have 2 bulging discs plus arthritis. I took as prescribed, and didn't find relief.

    Just started taking flexiril 10mg. at bedtime. Surprisingly, it is working very well for my back muscle spasms. I could hardly move before because I need spine surgery and all the muscles around the area that needs to be fused are very tight. I hope this medication works well for me because I can hardly bear my spinal bone pain.

    Comment:
    This medication seemingly has no effect on me besides withdrawal. It doesn't relax my muscles as all. It also doesn't make me drowsy or foggy minded. The only noticeable effect was the next morning my muscles were stiffer than they've ever been before. It didn't feel like knots but rather intense stiffness. I reluctantly tried a double dose a week later to see if it would have any ... Show Full Comment
