Gary, why in the world would Canada ban Flexeril? That's downright silly to me as it's non-addictive, simply a muscle relaxant... Soma is addictive... but can you get Zanaflex? Supposed to be sorta the same family, maybe stronger though in relaxing properties... I've tried it once, not been too impressed yet with it, but then didn't have much of a chance with it. Neuro has suggested we might switch becos my tolerance is getting too high to the Flexeril.
Yes, Quinine is good for malaria too, but it's also awesome for the restless legs. Neuro commented how the OLD legatrin actually used to have regulated Quinine in it, whereas now when you look at the Legatrin ingredients, it doesnot, and it's actually simply Tylenol PM... at nearly twice the price! So I just use the Ty Pm now. Legatrin is nothing more than that.
HBird, it's odd but Botox actually makes sense but I'm also afraid it makes sense that if Botox freezes out the wrinkles so that the muscles don't make wrinkles per se, then it might also make the muscles that twitch/spasm freeze into uselessness too... I'd be a bit wary on this idea. I guess it'd be interesting to try, but what if you did it, and it acted like a paralysis instead? Kind of a weird thought to me, I'm just thinking out loud here. :) Alot to ponder.
Spasticity has become my number one nemesis now in my right leg... it triggers enormous pain on a regular basis so that a good day is if I get thru half of it without limping or spasms of pain at some point.
