I have not ever heard of Amrix till now. Not sure it would work for me, never know though. Flexeril caused me the major heaves and made me a foggy dwarf. I too used Robaxin in the past with success. However, the last few years, Zanaflex has really been a life saver for me. it works and does not knock me out. But, my new pain mgt wuit rxing it to her patients because she said they had started a black box warning back in the spring of 07. Well, I looked it up and they did not black box it at all. They sent a warning letter out to drs that is could possibly interact with about
5 other medications resulting in the mix could make the drug work like a heavier dose had been tkaen. I plan to print this out & give it to her at my appt this month. When I asked in June for a script
she said no-then told me why. Then she decided to go ahead and write the script
because I use the PRN, and they really work for me. But she only wrote the rx for 40 pills.. better than nothing tho.
I would make a good dwarf in fact osteporosis is helping me become a dwarf by shrinking me.
