I t seems I have been gaining slowly since I have been taking flexerill. Just a little each day! It's very frustrating. I am not hungry at all and am not eating any differently than I have been.

Hi , no flexeril does not make you gain weight.
This is odd , one of the many side effects is loss of appetite, you have not changed your routine, you are not hungry, but you still eat or is there a lack of appetite?
Because if you have a lack of appetite you should contact your Doctor ASAP.
I do not have all the answers, I think no one does, now with regards to your weight gain problem I must say it could be water retention.( I am guessing) I am not a Doctor.
I suggest the following:
Tell your doctor about any UNUSUAL or bothersome side effect. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
Contact your Doctor anyway and explain to him/her what you are experiencing... from a caring individual.

Xanax makes you gain weight and its like a muscle relaxer so does soma these both work really well with your appetite and helping gain weight. Are you trying to gain weight? whoever gave you flexaril to help you gain weight does not know what they are doing flexaril is not to help weight gain at all.

if your eating habbits have not changed its not the med itself but the side effect of the flexerall relaxing your muscles. Which is making you sluggish and tired. its relaxing your muscles therefore making you tired and probably taking away whatever motivation you had before you started taking it., away. Does this make any sense to ya ? Hope this helps
