Xanaflex & zanax seem to help with pain better than pain pills. Why is doctor determined to prescribe me potent pain meds instead of zanax which seems to help me more. i have vertibrae damage & memory loss due to sever injury. i'll always be on medication. they are making me dependant on opiates, why not benzo 's instead. they seem to help mme more. does anybody out there have a similar situation ?

I have never used Zanaflex, I have used the xanax and have had it to help, I deal with chronic pain, In February I caught a nasty fall I had already had 4 vertebraes that were damaged in January, then when I caught the fall in February I damaged the disk in my back which affected my shoulders, the anti-inflammatory medication Aleve (over the counter) has helped maybe with the memory problem this is why it is among the doctor's concerns about using the Xanax, he may prefer the Zanaflex and the pain medicines he has prescribed, I am so sorry so much time has passed but it is my sincere hope that you are greatly improved.
