I am a single parent of three small children (4,3,18 months), i was just prescribed flexeril and after reading the reviews I am a little worried about taking it at night...
Flexeril - Has anyone had trouble waking up to kids?
Added 1 May 2014:
*update* my dr wants me to take it for seven days right before bed so we can see if it helps my neck/back/shoulder pain. if not we need further testing. tonight will be my first night on it and i am fairly nervous.
It doesn't seem to bother some people, and others really get sleepy. I can take it at night, because I'll sleep good and have no trouble getting up the next morning, but I can't take it during the day. I don't know if you have to get up in the middle of the night for a child calling if I'd be able to get up.
And see with me, it never has even made me sleepy. Best thing to do is try it, but with a friend sleeping over to help with the children in case you are too sedated. Other things are to try the half dose (5 mg), take it earlier in the evening, etc. I hope you can work it out, this medication has helped so much with my muscle spasms. Regards - EJ23
