Is it anticholinergic?
(I'm trying to avoid anticholinergic drugs out of concerns about developing dementia.)
Anyone tried muscle relaxer called tizanidine, generic for Zanaflex? My pain doctor just switched me to that from baclofen. Baclofen was not helping the painful spasms in my back.
I've been having terrible migraines, which my neurologist said is from tension so he prescribed Zanaflex. I'm also having horrible muscle cramps. Not like spasms but pain like someone rubbing a very sore or bruised muscle. Are these both symptoms anyone else has with their fibro? Any tips on how to deal with both of these? I use Tylenol, Alece, vitamin D, fish oil, Lyrica, Zanaflex and Plaquenil for my Rheumatoid Disease. I also use.heat and cold when needed. Any other suggestions?… read more
How are any of you getting to sleep? I will fall asleep, but it's only for 45 minutes and then it's off and on for four hours and then I'm just up. I've tried ambien, lorazepam, temazapam, flurazapam, valium, zanaflex, flexeril, sleepy time tea,melatonin, valerian root, and some antihistamines.
I've heard that it can happen, but have never spoken with anyone that has experienced it. I have felt great the past few months! I lice in SE Louisiana so we don't have much of a winter here. The past two weekends it's been super cold for us. It bothered me and I had pain, but not like I normally experience with cold weather. I take Lyrica and Zanaflex daily and I also have Percocet and Toradol for pain.
I wanted to know what kinds of pain meds ppl have tried n if they work.
I use to be on hydrocodone But they me off that now I take tramadol. It work kinda
I have seen that some of you take muscle relaxers and I would like to know what kinds & if they work well. I feel like my body is constantly tense. Thanks for any help
My doctor just added Skelaxin to my medications, I was wondering if anyone else is on it or has tried it and their thoughts.
