Hello everyone,
 
I have spastic Cerebral Palsy and usually I post in the chronic pain forum BUT...my doc just started me on the muscle relaxer Dantrolene on the 11th (so this is day 9). And I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with it...since it's used primarily in patients with either Cerebral Palsy, MS, stroke, or spinal cord injury.
 
She has me on a slow upward climb, for the first week I was taking 25mg once per day, now this second week I'll be taking 25mg twice per day, next week will be 3x a day etc.
 
So far I haven't noticed much of a difference in terms of the muscle spasms, but I'm guessing that's because the dose is so low?
 
Any experience, advice, anything would be much appreciated! Thank you :)
