Flexeril vs zanaflex

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril vs zanaflex

flexeril

I take Zanaflex which is much like the drug Baclofen. Zanaflex produces more drowsiness and sedation than baclofen. Are you taking it as a muscle relaxer?
Have you tried muscle relaxants such as Zanaflex or Flexeril? This sometimes occurs after trauma such as motor vehicle accidents. Muscle strains can lead to tension headaches or trigger migraines. Cervical spine abnormalities should have been pickep up by the spine films done. However, if you have numbness and tingling in your limbs or weakness, an EMG may be helpful. Talk to your docs about symptomatic treatment and try some warm showers/baths, ibuprofen, and perhaps a muscle relaxant.
While I am not on remicade, what I am seeing from patient comments is that a positive change happens for most around the second injection. Regarding Remicade vs Enbrel vs Humira, some doctors prefer one over the other. I am curious, though. What meds were tried before remicade? Usually the docs start you with something like relafen and plaquenil. It can take up to 3 months to determine if that is working.
I'm a about 185 days clean and still learning about forums vs. groups, posts of your own vs posting on other peoples "threads", etc. can all be confusing until you toot around a bit. You're getting it. Don't get discouraged ok? Two things, first.....YOU DESERVE HUGE PRAISE FOR YOUR WEEKS OFF METHADONE!! Don't give up, don't go back ON something. You have so much already behind you. I have no personal experience with methadone, but many forum members DO.
so that tells u the abuse potential of this drug...It is a muscle relaxant..but unlike flexeril, zanaflex, skelaxin, soma breaks down into a metabolite that is habit forming,,,in its original form it is not so much so//but after it is metabolized, it becomes a substance that is habit forming making it different than other muscle relaxers on the market..and is becoming less and less RX-ed because of this A competent DR will usually have a patient other MRs before he offers soma..
Zanaflex and Diazepam for the spasms; the Duragesic patch for pain, and MSIR morphine for break-through pain. Radio Frequency Neurotomies in the cervical and the thoracic at T1-T2 to get the nerves under the scapula. Also, botox injection into the spasm. I can live ok now.

I have been on naproxen, on Flexeril and that's it. Neither helped very much. I have been to another chiropractor, who did order an x-ray. He said something about deterioration of the spine and told me I must come for treatments for a long time. My whole upper body had started to twist a bit, as I tensed up from the pain and he said he could fix that. Well, I did go three times weekly for about six months.
