chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: My migraines were getting worse in grad school and the medications weren't touching the pain. I was diagnosed with cluster headaches and given this medication and now my life is almost completely headache free. Also, I am lucky enough to not suffer any negative side effects!
Review by Samantha79 (taken for less than 1 month):
Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: Lorzone immensely improved my severe whiplash after just one dose (effects felt next day).
First thing I noticed was that it relaxed my diaphragm, causing me to burp, and it relaxed other areas causing me to cough regularly.
Two thumbs up!
Parafon Forte DSC (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: 1984-1988 had migraine headaches that seemed to part my head with symptoms being only on one side of my head, such as running nose, watering eye, one blood shot eye and one temple throbbing. Lasted for many hours and would re-appear in minutes or hours. After taking Parafon Forte three time, I haven't had a headache since.

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: LORZONE IS AMAZING. I would recommend this muscle relaxer to anyone who doesn't want to feel drowsy or have the hangover feeling the next morning! I was prescribed to the 750mg 3-4 times a day.

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: I have been struggling with pain and fatigue from soft tissue damage after auto accident. Dr. Prescribed numerous medications. This one by far is at the top of the list as far as effectiveness and no side effects. Thank goodness I have it!

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: I used to take Flexeril for back pain until I found a doctor who thinks outside the box. He prescribed this to me and it's been wonderful! No bad side effects, a little tiredness in the beginning, but other then that nothing. Takes the spasms away. Almost a miracle drug for me! I take 500 mg 3x a day.

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: I really don't think parafon forte helped me too well. I really didn't feel any different as far as the muscle spasms, because they were still as bad as they were before. I've switched to 2mg Valium as it has helped tremendously. Plus, Valium helps with my anxiety as well. A quick fact from what I read in my pamphlet on 2mg Valium that it's purposes are for muscle spasms, anxiety, and acute alcohol withdrawals. I never knew about it helping with acute alcohol withdrawals too. You learn something new everyday.

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: I have been taking this medication now for 2 weeks. It is, by far, the best muscle relaxant I have tried. All the others made me drowsy, unable to think straight, and not able to work. I have had extensive pain in my neck and lower back due to MS and Fibromyalgia. They have given me everything in the last 16 years but this has worked best for me. I really wish my doctor had prescribed this for me earlier. The quality of life really does go up when you don't feel like you are turning to stone.

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: I take this drug as I have 2 blown discs at L5-S1 (1991) and L3-L4 2002. This drug works wonders for me. I don't take them as prescribed as it is prescribed on a daily basis. I take them when I have minor sciatica. I get the 500mg generic which is cheap. I take maybe 1 and I'm good. These pills work as they are supposed to.

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: After trying dozens of muscle relaxers over the past 1 years and having side effects like non-stop vomiting, of severe nausea (so bad that I could not get my head out of a trash can) not to mention the sharp pains in my stomach and not being able to eat anything. I figured this was just another trial. Boy was I shocked when I tried this one. Granted it's not perfect, but I have part of my life back and am not neurotic that I have at least 3 ziplock bags in my purse and one in each sweater pocket in case I can not get to the rest room in time.

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: This is the ONLY muscle relaxant I can tolerate without any side effects ie: drowziness, restlessness, irritability. I am dealing with left over nerve pain in my neck from shingles and I have tried everything for the muscle pain. Now the pain is moving down into my left shoulder and I can't get comfortable at night unless I take this medication.

chlorzoxazone for Muscle Spasm: I have been taking Chlorzoxazone for a couple of years to help with leg muscle pain caused by L4-L5 root damage. It helps significantly reduce my pain. I don't believe it makes me sleepy, although there may be a little bit of light-headedness.
