Does Anyone Use Muscle Relaxants?

Does Anyone Use Muscle Relaxants?

Im having lots of pain in my lower back and hips which is now spreading to my abdomen and affecting my ability to urinate. My husband thinks i should ask my doctor for muscle relxants but ive taken baclofen before and it didnt work. Just wondering if anyone is taking them and the name of the relaxant

I told my doctor that about Tizandidine and he told me to take 1/2 in the morning and a whole one after dinner. That seems to work a lot better for me. Maybe this would help you! Soft hugs!

I use flexiril as needed. It helps him. But not a whole lot.

That's what I use tizanidine is very helpful. I take it 3 times a day with a tremadol together when having a bad day just a little quicker action. I take bacolfen every nite before I go to bed
