For Muscle Spasm: "My doc put me on this 500mg 2 daily took my first one feel like I am getting a sore throat am not able to sleep, muscle spasms still regularly. I don't understand to the new laws. I was on Soma's which worked great but to now if you are or have been on a Benz u can't have Soma's. The doc has quit writing that med. I've been on 20 different meds for spasms now they took the only thing that worked and gave me this which, by the way, my insurance company doesn't cover. Now I have to pay out of pocket for something that I .think is garbage"

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: "I was prescribed Lorzone and was given a sample by my doctor. I took medicine around 6 PM went to bed at 11. Woke up at 1 pm with a condition very similar to getting a piece of food stuck in esophagus. I could breathe, but was unable to swallow. My saliva became thick and foamy and had to spit it into a cup. Had my wife take me to Emergency room. Had an endoscopy which when I woke up I was fine."

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: "I ALMOST DIED FROM LORZONE!!! Who ever took samples to a Pain Doctor's office knowing it can KILL you if you take other pain medicines with this KILL. I was not told this, I was just told to take two 750mg tablets a day. I swelled up in the face, hands and legs. I became so sick I had dark urine and could not eat as all I could do was throw up and have coffee ground diarrhea. I WAS GIVEN SAMPLES FROM A PAIN DOCTOR! No information was on the boxes! Before you take this make sure it goes with all your medicines you are on or you could DIE! (check your drug interactions) I MAY NEVER BE THE SAME. Who ever gave those samples to a pain Doctor's office they are trying to kill people!! I can not tell you how many days I took the samples as I lost my MEMORY! I called the company they are to blame for this in my book!"

For Muscle Spasm: "Today was my first day trying the drug....I got a headache, stomach ache and 0 pain relief, darn it! Was trying you get off Robaxin which works great except I am losing a lot of my hair from it. Both of these drugs have a high percentage if you are over 60, darn it again!"

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: "I had had a full shoulder repair done about 9 days to go they stuck me on this and when I first started taking it the side effects were a little crazy but after the initial 24 hours of taking it it works absolutely amazing I'm able to sleep. When I first started taking it at the doctor had recommended I take the whole pill 750 milligrams which I did knock me out so I can sleep in it was right after surgery and now I'm down to a third of the pill and it still works the same way it's an amazing muscle relaxer and I would recommend it to anybody. Some people may say that's not long enough on the medication to know whether or not it truly works but I'm telling you after a full shoulder repair it works just fine at work how it's supposed to."

For Muscle Spasm: "I am being weened off Vicodin ( for RA joint stiffness and pain) by my "pain doctor" because I consume alcohol and it shows in my urine sample.So now I am not allowed my 10 year perfect solution for my RA/osteoarthritis joint pain with my 7.5/325 tablets prescribed 3x/day.I take one at 5:30 am before I walk 4.5 miles 6 days a week-it's like oiling my my joints.I often don't take the others during the day.BUT I know I have them for backup.So, he prescribed this chlorzoxazone at 500mg.The first morning I took it, after my walk I had to sit down and couldn't get up for 4 hours;I was confused,like a zombie,and wasn't normal 'til 5pm.The healthcare system is wrong, and I am another victim."

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: "I suffer from degenerative arthritus, bulging n herniated discs as well as severe muscle spasms. Just took my first dose of this at 1500mg 3x a day. There is no sleepy feeling and finally i have a little relief. Before Lorzone i was on a strong muscle relaxer that didnt' do much. Even with my norco's and nucynta i was in extreme pain n could barely breathe. After this first dose of lorzone i can breathe without the extreme pain. I still have pain in my spine n thorasic area but its more tolerable than before. I hope this continue's to keep the severe pain away. I am on medicare and disability so i hope when the samples are over, the cost of the script isnt to high. I have high expectations of this med, praying it works out good."

For Muscle Spasm: "I was prescribed Lorzone recently by a pain specialist when I explained that all other muscle relaxants I have previously used were too sedating. I was pleased to find that though it is a 'new' medication (presumably repatented, since Paraflex was around since the 1990's), my insurance covered its generic form, Chlorzoxazone. In my experience, this is not a medication that is going to alter your mental state or give a drowsy effect; I do notice significantly reduced muscle spasm activity when taking it and none of the negative effects so common with other medications of its class. It does exactly what is expected and no unwanted side effects for me."

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: "I've tried almost every muscle relaxer out on the market, nothing worked as well as Lorzone! Its been a Godsend for me. I have multiple chronic spinal issues, some that cause severe muscle spasms. Lorzone has made my life more bearable. It may take about a week when you first start to actually work on your spasms, then continue as directed and you'll notice a difference in the amount, and severity of spasms. I've also noticed within a week or two of stopping Lorzone the spasms return. :( Unfortunately I'll be on meds for the rest of my life. My insurance only pays a very small part of cost, I use the coupon that lorzone provides, ask your doctor for it, its on the box of samples they get from the company."

Lorzone (chlorzoxazone) for Muscle Spasm: "Rx Lorzone 750mg, bid. Took for 2 days, unable to tolerate. Caused vomiting,dizziness, felt like limbs coated in cement. It worked great on spasms. Headache and other side effects not worth taking drug. Will stop and tell my doctor."

For Muscle Spasm: "I am a 35 yr old female. Fibromyalgia diagnosis was in October 2013 after 1-2 years of unexplainable symptoms. Just recently woke up with a kink in my (right sided) neck, mid back, shoulder, pectoral, bicep and entire arm/arm pit pain, cramps, spasms. 6 days after it started I went to the ER and was diagnosed with tortecollis. ER doc gave me a shot of Norflex and Toridol. He sent me home with scripts for flexeril and voltaren. I saw my doctors nurse practitioner the next day & she told me to stop the voltaren and started me on a medrol dose pack and told me to continue taking flexeril. The flexeril didn't relieve any pain. Later in the week I called the NP again & was told to quit flexeril & start 500 MG paragon forte. SURPRISE no relief"

For Muscle Spasm: "I have been taking the generic form of Parafon Forte 500 mg since 1997 for my back, neck & leg spasms due to fibromyalgia, sciatica and neuropathy. It was not the first, second or even the fifth muscle relaxant I tried. None of the sodas, flexerils or amytripline, or NSAID type meds made much difference. So I did some online research and found this med to be the strongest muscle relaxer (as of '97 at least). I asked my pain management doc for this med.I am still using it 18 years later. This is not a new medication"
