Believe me not by choice. The Flexiril do not seem to be working other than causing the bad side effects. I haven't slept much since discontinuing Soma. I'm wondering if these side effects are normal. My legs (and other parts of my body) are jerking really bad at night. Just about the time I start to doze off my legs jerk violently and wake me back up. If I do finally fall asleep, I jerk all night. I've also noticed if I take one before bedtime I get bad indigestion. I've never had problems with indigestion and believe me I have lots of G.I. problems. This is the third muscle relaxer I've been on since they won't perscribe Soma anymore. Does anyone else have these side effects?
