... insomnia? My doctor had prescribed 10mg - 20mg. It doesn't help that much for my cervical & spinal stenosis! I thought that diazepam is supposed to relax the muscles to allow for a better night sleep! Also have severe fibromyalgia & ostheoarthritis (taking Lyrica for that problem. My psychiatrist has added Remeron 15mg to my regiment for sleep. Anyone have these issues? Would really like someone with a similar problem to comment on this question!

I'm not a Doctor but it seems odd that your Physician would prescribe a benzodiazapine as a long term sleep solution. Perhaps the prescription is written "as needed"? In any event, the Remeron should help. For a period I was on Tizanidine as a night time muscle relaxant which really helped with sleep. But in considering Tizanidine as a potential form of therapy you would most definitely want to make sure the prescribing Physician is aware of all of the medications you are currently taking as there could be some serious interactions.
All the best and take care for now.
