If the Flexiril is not working for you, then you should talk to your Doctor about it, I would not be increasing your dosage though! I know Flexiril never worked for me, and I did not like the way it made me feel! I used to be prescribed Robaxin, and it worked very well for me, Zanaflex ( I believe that is what it is call it and it never worked for me either) I am on Baclofen 25 mg every 8 hours now and that seems to really help me, at least most of the time.
Don't worry about your Doctors nurse being aggravated with you, she is not having the muscle spasms, you are! You should not have to put up with them, they hurt! or at least mine do, my muscles knot up something fierce and when they do, God does it hurt! I do empathize with you Anice! So please talk with your Doctor about it, maybe you need to be on something different!
Wishing you only the Best!
Good Luck to You!
