Hello and welcome to DC, Mrs. Little - Flexeril sure does help with muscle spasms. I cannot say for sure about anxiety though. This medication isn't meant for long-term either. I can see that being on this med for muscle spasms can also have a side benefit. Lots of medications have other benefits than the ones they were prescribed for.
Can you talk more about how you are feeling or how we can help you???

Hi Mrs. Little4,
I'm so sorry about the panic attacks you are suffering, they are hellish indeed.
But Flexeril could harm your baby, as Mary indicated, so no Flexeril, OK?
Do tell your doctor about your panic attacks, there is probably something that you can be prescribed that won't hurt your baby. Do you know why you are having panic attacks? This is an anonymous website, you can tell us anything that you wish, we don't know who you are nor do we care. We are just here to help.
