I took 10 mg at bedtime last night. Four hours later I was in agony. My left leg was cramped from toes to hip. My right foot and calf were cramping. I thought I was going to have to go the emergency room. Drank some tonic water which helped but woke up two hours later with the same pain. Took 600 mg ibuprofen and that finally took care of it. Wow.
I took .5 mg of Flexeril for the last 10 years and it just now started causing me cramps at night I took one in the morning one at night I quit taking the one at night in my legs quick cramping but I need to find something new I was taking flexor all because of my bad neck and now my neck is starting to bother me due to the fact I don’t take it at night now so now I don’t know what to do is there another muscle relaxer that could replace the Flexeril
I have been on the medication for 6 weeks. I have had severe leg cramps for 5 weeks. Had no idea it was the meds. Nothing else in my routine has changed. It’s so bad, I have woken my husband up 5 nights in a row trying to get out of bed. Walking helps, but it can still take 30 minutes to get rid of the cramps. It always starts in the calf. I’ve had them move down to my toes and around my ankle. Good to know I’m not crazy. Done with this medication now.
