My doctor prescribed Skelaxin but it's not covered by my insurance plan. Is it better than other skeletal muscle relaxants?
I was on Skelaxin for 6 weeks and found very little relief from chronic, agonizing muscle spasms, waist down. The co-pay for this drug was very high, also, even on Medicare Part D. My doctor then stopped the Skelaxin and I have been on Robaxin 750 mg three times a day, along with Neurontin 300 mg and Norco 10 mg three times daily, and will increase to four times a day in a couple of weeks. I have seen a big difference in pain and spasm relief from the Robaxin, Neurontin and Norco mix. I was eager to try the Skelaxin, even at such a high price, as I had read so many good reviews about it; however, was honestly disappointed in it's effects.
