I am glad that med is working for you! Flexeril never did anything for me except make me "Dopey" The military used to give me Robaxin for muscle spasms and that worked pretty good but you had to be on it for awhile before it started working. I got that mostly for back spasms.
Baclofen has been the Godsend for me! I am on 25mg every 8 hours except my night time dose at 10Pm and then I take 30mg of it. I take that 24/7 and have been on it for several years, even though I am on it 24/7, every now and then I will have periods that I will have bouts of severe muscle spasms, I get them in my Legs,( calf's and thighs, especially the inner thighs, boy that can be a real BEAR!) feet, back, the neck is pure torture for me! and arms, and hands! I don't think that there is any place on my body that they don't strike! To me there is very few things as painful as when a muscle knots up tight and will not release! To be woken up in the middle of the night from a very sound sleep with them has to be the very worst! I absolutely hate them!
I do sympathize and empathize with you Patti, I sure do hope that the Amrix works for you!
Good Luck to You!
