I have bad arthritis in my neck, and unfortunately have to use the computer a lot which aggravates it and causes muscle spasms throughout my neck and back. I got 3 shots of cortisone at the onset of this condition five years ago, which helped enormously, and was then on a huge amount of oxycodone for 18 months, as well as 30 mg of flexeril daily to calm spasming.

i have taken flexeril for my constant back spasms and the only thing good i can say about the drug is that the pill form is easy to take (like all oral medications), thats it. As for effectiveness and satisfaction??? is there a scale lower than 1 star? the medication has done nothing for my back cramps, in fact ibuprofen helped much better than this drug ever has.

I used this medication for muscle spasms due to a back injury. I take it before bedtime on a friday because it knocks me out for 2 days. It does work but i only use as a absolute emergency.

i have been on this drug for more than ten years off and on. i take it primarily at night and it works wonders overnight on spasmed muscles plus gives me a good nights sleep. i just have to remember to allow eight hours for it to work so i'm not groggy in the am. i have tried methocarbamol, soma etc... and none work like flexeril but i do find the brand name more effective than the generic. ...
