I am also experiencing muscle spasms in buttocks? Can Xanax be prescribed to control muscle spasms?
I have a problem with L5 disc, causing pain in right extremeties?

Why would my doctor then prescribe Xanex as a muscle relaxer. I do not suffer from depression which this drug is primarily used.
I can't imagine a dr prescribing Xanax for that condition. There are many drugs that would work better without the addictive componets
Are you seeing an orthopedic or pain management doc? You probably need to be under the care of one.
The reason you are feeling the pain in the buttocks is due to the nerve. You need to find something that controls the nerve signal and swelling
You may want to consider acupuncture as well
Actually, it depends on where you live. In the UK, for instance, Xanax and Klonopin, benzos, are commonly used as muscle relaxers, and Flexeril, cyclobenzaprine, is not even available. Here in the US, doctors usually prescribe a muscle relaxer and not Xanax. My particular neurologist prefers Klonopin over Flexeril for me. I do use the Klonopin as an add-on medication if Flexeril is not doing the job. Regards - EJ23
