Hey Sarah,  Sorry I am a little late in responding...Rj is always so on the ball though...  tongue .  I too have to read the side effects of every medication that I am prescribed....but I have a CMT (certified medication tech.) certificate and am used to dealing with medications and have to worry about side effects and interactions with all the other drugs that I take.  Anyhow, I took flexaril for a while for muscle spasms with my MS and all it did do was lower my blood pressure (slightly)...but this was before all my current blood pressure problems.  There is another muscle relaxant Zanaflex which is quite effective, I take this now, and don’t have any problems with it regarding my heart rate and blood pressure which both are constant problems.  I hope the Flexaril works well for you and you get some relief from your pain.  Hugs
