For Muscle Spasm: "Honestly, it didn't noticeably work for my back and pelvic pain at first when i took the recommended 10mg dosage. So instead of taking 10 mg, I took twenty. If you do that, it works enough to make muscle pain tolerable. I wouldn't recommend taking more than 2-2.5 of the 10mg pills unless you want to sleep though. However. You will get the best sleep possible! If you take more than 10mgs, and taking tylenol in between doses. For extreme pain and discomfort."

For Muscle Spasm: "I am so glad I found this website, until just now, I have never heard of Cyclobenzaprine helping anyone; including myself. I'm on Morphine ER 2xs daily, as well as oxycodone hcl 20mg, up to 5xs daily, why do I need this anyways? But I did try it to help with some stiffness, as for an update, I'm still taking Valium as a muscle relaxant. it may not help the pain, but at least you want remember having it !!!!"

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) for Muscle Spasm: "Taking Flexerill gets results for pain relief especially when taken with Tramadol, but I have started having severe pain and pressure in the very low abdominal area like a very painful bowel movement. Starts in the middle of the night and lasts for about an hour. I only use once or twice a week and only at bedtime, but now I am thinking this may not be the drug for me."

For Muscle Spasm: "I have taken 5 10mg at once and got zero from it. I had cancer on my spine (had Spinal surgery ) and my whole back is a scene from the terminator. Lucky to be alive. But flexeral does nothing for muscle spasms"

For Sciatica: "For my migrains, back spasms, and sciatica, this was a fantastic find. I take as needed, which is weekly. I have sleep problems and it helped with that too. I take an hour before bed, drink plenty of water with it and in the morning. After a shower, I'm alert again. Sometimes, for whatever reason, I do have drowsiness, but maybe that is hormone related or dosage. I suspect it builds up and then my body hangs on to it at times more than others. Water and nap and I'm usually back. A quick walk to get the blood moving. I'm disappointed I can't do more with my lower back problems - therapy, strength training, yoga, etc. Surgery won't work. This drug has made my year so much better. Thinking of a themepark first time in yr"

For Muscle Spasm: "It worked to get rid of neck pain and muscle spasms , but even with half a dose, I am unable to function the next day. I would be a dangerous driver. I feel like my head is wobbly and could fall off any second. I will not take it again until or unless my neck pain is so bad i don't care if I do anything the next several days. I gave it a 6 because it was effective according to the guideliines, but my first thought was a 3. At least with neck pain I could function."

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) for Muscle Spasm: "having had pain meds in the hospital were awful following Hip replacement. I was given hydrocodone and they think it was the cause of my BP dropping to 60/40. To avoid those opiots they gave me flexeril and it relieved the most excruciating spasms of my entire operative leg. Not quite sure but that it also is a source of giving me hypotension. If you are going to be comfortable laying down. My recommendation is this."

For Fibromyalgia: "I have been on this medication for about 10 years, since first getting diagnosed. Initially, they wanted me to take three times/day-I was a zombie. So, the rest of the time, I just have taken to sleep. Not really effective anymore for that."

For Muscle Spasm: "It knocked me out for 12 hours. Didn't get rid of my pain. Made me feel confused and very irritable. I'm still feeling effects 5 days later (small waves of confusion/anxiety with nausea). I wouldn't recommend it. Rather have someone stand on my hurt back all day than to use this again."

For Fibromyalgia: "I have been on this medication off and on for several years and have had Fibromyalgia for over 20 years. Cyclobenzaprine along with Lyrica have allowed me to live a somewhat normal life. I get a far more restful sleep and am able to sleep through the night instead of waking every hour or so. My previous Doctor retired and it took me almost 2 years to find another . For 18 of those months I was without medications,( walk in clinics would not prescribe these medications) my quality of life diminished and I came very close to losing my job. Once I found a new Doctor and I was back on my medications, within a few weeks I was able to function again. For me Cyclobenzaprine and Lyrica have been the perfect combo to help manage my FM"

For Sciatica: "I took as dr told me and no results have I had. They didn't even take edge off so I doubled up and still nothing. And I haven't taken any pills in years since my last surgery. These are crap"

For Muscle Spasm: "I have tried this several times. While it works well for the muscles spasms I can't function the next day. I am very confused and looking for something to get it out of my system. I just read it can stay in your system 5 to 10 days"

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) for Sciatica: "I have been taking Flexeril 10mg in Combination with Celebrex 200mg. I take both PRN and they work great. I started in 2005 on both meds from a accident at work. Now I also have Fibromialgia , RA and Osteoarthritis. I continue to take flexeril at night and it works great for me. I use a heated mattress pad and flexeril to sleep comfortable and I wake up with less stiffness and not as sore."

For Muscle Spasm: "Tried this drug for chronic neck pain. Doctor prescribed as better than Norvo. NO WAY! Tried first one 10mg before going to bed. Got bad insomnia . Couln't sleep at all--and neck pain was WORSE. Bad night--Will try once more during day. If pain doesn't get relief I'm dropping this as worthless."

Fexmid (cyclobenzaprine) for Muscle Spasm: "This was prescribed for lower back pain. I was to take 1 before bed to help me sleep. Unfortunately, my body often reacts opposite to what is expected. It gave me insomnia. My brain refused to shut off while taking it. The doctor switched me to Soma, which works well for me."
