Mochiah - What is your pain from? I'm assuming that your having some sort of muscle pain?
For me muscle relaxers are something I simply have to have. Without them my back spasms very painfully around where they did my spinal fusion. You can literally put your hand on my back and feel the muscles jumping.
If the pain your experiencing isn't from muscle pain - a muscle relaxer won't help. If it is, it could help decrease the number of pain medication pills you take by a bit. Just be wary that taking pain medication and muscle relaxers at the same time could knock you out quickly - and depending on the pill - each comes with it's own side effects. The soma that I take I can feel it hit my system, and I don't like the feeling it gives me when it does. For about
15 minutes I'm very talkative. When I first started taking it I had to be very careful as when it hit I felt as if my legs had turned to rubber.
