    You should always ask the doc how long it should take before you see the full effects of any med. Some meds take up to a week or more. I would suggest if you dont see an approvement in a few more days, go back to talk to the doctor, he may have something to compliment these drugs, or at least he should re-evaluate you. I personnally have had more luck with Cyclobenzaprine for the muscle stuff, as that is what the zanaflex is normally used for.

    Hello.
    I was in your position two years ago. To be honest, the best thing that happened to me was surgery- I had a c5/c6 titanium disk fusion after two years of misery. The meds you are on are conservative but who wants to be on pain meds forever. The sooner you do it, the better. My two year wait on surgery cost me some great years of my life, my marriage, and my independence. People with neck trauma are 13 times more like to develop Fibromyalgia- I am one of those people. Waiting increases your chances for arthritis & side effects. No matter what the surgery costs, it is less than losing your quality of life. Much luck to you, Flyfree

    sounds like you need to get off those...check out maybe a small dose of oxy-contin or oxy-codone or even 10mg of methadone, but ask your doc and tell em you dont like those and you need something else.
