I'm taking 750 mg three times daily for severe muscle spasms due to Fibromyalgia, Spinal Stenosis, and spinal arthritis. I'm finding I'm quite sedated, and experiencing stomach upset from this med. I'm not very happy with thus drug at all. Having read previous comments, I'm very well hydrated. I drink at least 3 liters water daily, so I know it's not dehydration.

I have scoliosis and DDD along with other chronic pain conditions. I had taken Flexeril in the past and it seemed to work a little and it did not make me extremely drowsy. Well I changed doctors due to moving and my new doctor insisted this medication would work better and not make me drowsy. Well he complete opposite happened..I can barely function due to feeling like a zombie plus the spasms are ... Show Full Comment

I've taken this medication in the past a few times, but I just got prescribed to take it again for muscle spasms resulting from sciatica. Right now I can take 1-2 500mg tabs up to 3x/day as needed for pain, so basically up to 3g a day. Honestly, friends of mine that have tried this medicine in the past have told me it doesn't work for them, but it always has for me. It really does ease ... Show Full Comment

I have spondylolisthesis of my L4 over my L5 and Adult Degenerative Scoliosis. My dosage is 1000mg (2x500mg) every twelve hours. This combined with Diclofenac Sodium 75mg (every twelve hours), has completely discontinued all pain that I had. And I had been taking 800mg of Ibuprofen four times a day, which wasn't touching the pain. I have had no side effects other than occasional drowsine ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This drug makes my muscles warm and goes deeper into my muscles than flexeril. Very very inportant with muscle spasms and the knots and pain from them is to drink adequate water. I hope the person 30 yo man who says he is in horrible pain and it hurts to breathe. I believe hydrating yourself will do wonders. Anytime my symptoms get that bad the first thing I ask myself is if I am dehydrated after ... Show Full Comment
