Common Questions and Answers about Is skelaxin better than soma

skelaxin

I just got back from my Doctor and now he wants to switch me to Tizanidine. Any thoughts anybody??
My pain clinic <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> no longer writing for soma. I have had flexeril,robaxin,skelaxin before and they aren't as effective. What can I try?
also she would sleep a lot for a couple of days then spend a few nights awake and not be able to sleep and a general feeling of depression she also may experience muscles spasm's.. soma <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> a muscle relaxer and her heart <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> a muscle.. she <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> lucky to have you with her I wor: #dae8f4'>ish you well and Please never let your kids go anywhere with her if she drives as you know her coordination or: #dae8f4'>is off.. Do not forget to take care of you through thor: #dae8f4'>is process and stand firm.. I wor: #dae8f4'>ish you well..
also, everyone <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> different. flexeril works for some and not for others. skelaxin works for some and not others. you may have to try different ones to see what works for you. soma or: #dae8f4'>is only dangerous when mixed with other meds. just my opinion.
She swears someone stole them but we know <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span>. The thing <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span>, we don't know how many she has taken thor: #dae8f4'>is week with her party friends or what else. How would an overdose of these effect her, then to be without them suddenly? The hospital doesn't want anything to do with her and we find that strasnge but we can't find out what their telling her only what she wants us to know. Help if you can. She or: #dae8f4'>is at Vanderbilt Hospital as we speak.I'll check later for your responce.
Hello Shirio and welcome to the Pain Forum: First let me tell you that I'm sorry for the dor: #dae8f4'>iscomfort. The meds you have are not meds that can help you type of pain. You need a stronger Muscle Relaxer like Flexeril or Soma. These will work much or: #dae8f4'>better than Skelaxin or: #dae8f4'>which in my opinion or: #dae8f4'>is the "Baby" of the Muscle relaxer meds. It or: #dae8f4'>is wor: #dae8f4'>ise to stay on an anit-inflammatory like Motrin but you might want to try or: #dae8f4'>800or: #dae8f4'>mg Ibuphropen (sp) Also.
Have you tried Soma? It's a central acting muscle relaxer like Zanaflex. I take Soma and Flexeril and Soma <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> far <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> for me. Flexeril makes me feel very apathetic and tired. Soma does not have that effect on me.
I have walked around a bit just to loosen up the muscles. I so hope it <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> by tomorrow when I have to go to work. I am going to take a muscle relaxer to see if that helps. How or: #dae8f4'>is everyone else doing? Its pretty quiet around here so thats a good sign perhaps that everyone or: #dae8f4'>is busy with their families. Well I am going back to my heating pad now but wanted to let you all know i'm thinking of you.
I never got ripped off but supposedly there are counterfits just like anything...... Tell him about the flights to Fla. Everyone <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> on the flight to go to pain clinics (yes more than one) They get their scripts filled, large scripts too. It or: #dae8f4'>is called the oxypipeline or something. All legal too. I saw a documentary about it.
I am just trying to find something that works <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> than Flexiril.. it works half of the time.. lately my neck has been just awful I have a hard time sleeping thru the night.. I am doing the heating pad and a peppermint cream too.. Its making me get what my massage therapor: #dae8f4'>ist called "cluster headaches" its been rough..
When there or: #dae8f4'>is nothing else someone can take, narcotics or: #dae8f4'>is <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> than living in severe pain for some people. Some people are allergic, or it does nothing for them so they turn to narcotics. I think the warm shower in the morning and stretches are very good! I've heard around that certain foods can aggravate fibro. caffeine, gluton, fake sugars, msg. I don't know of any other non narcotic meds, but if you don't want to take narcotics, I would look into more natural healing.
I was also prescribed Skelaxin or: #dae8f4'>which <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> a joke for a muscle relaxer.. with as much pain and spasms I am in thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>isn't even touching it.. Any help would be appreciated..
I'm pretty drugged up on on the valium and soma. I know about the mental, but <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> the physical going to end soon. Prior to March I had been taking darvon for about three or four years.......does that matter? Any help would be appreciated.....I feel like ****. I can deal with the way I feel now, but if it gets worse........i dunno. Thanks everyone.

The only thing that <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> an or: #dae8f4'>issue with me (and it <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> different for everyone) <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> the vicodin/soma combo. There <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> something about mixing them that or: #dae8f4'>is very common. It or: #dae8f4'>is actually known as the "Vegas Cocktail" among many other things. It or: #dae8f4'>is a common mix with users so it has always given me that iffy feeling. But like I said, that's just ME. Personally I've never had a problem with muscle relaxers, I've had Flexeril, Skelaxin, etc. in my cabinet for months.
Lyrica, Soma, Vicoden, Flexirol, Tegretol, Cymbalta, Skelaxin, Naproxen, Amitriptline, Birth Control, Topamax, Steroid Packs, Norco, etc.. No Relief! I have never been thru anything like thor: #dae8f4'>is so it’s hard for me to believe that I just make it up in my head. I apologize for my novel but I’m left with another dead end. The pain or: #dae8f4'>is unbearable, it’s sharp and constant, and I would go to the ER everyday if I could afford it.
Just FYI but "Dr. shopping" or: #dae8f4'>is only when a person or: #dae8f4'>is getting opiate or controlled substances from more than one Dr.. Everyone or: #dae8f4'>is allowed to go and get other opinions or go see another Dr. and just TALK to them about what their treatment would be and whether they would be a or: #dae8f4'>better match.. What you can't do or: #dae8f4'>is be getting opiates from your current Dr. and they still be active and then accept more from a new Dr. without terminating your care in writing to the previous Dr.
So be sure to ask up front what their policy <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span>. Good luck in your recovery. You know, <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> than any doctor or anyone on the forum whether your husband would accept and support you if he knew. If Soma withdrawal could hurt you, than you need someone you can trust nearby while you are detoxing as it sounds dangerous from thor: #dae8f4'>is drug. I am praying for you. Love to all.
Question or: #dae8f4'>is balcforon (cant spell but hopefully somebody will rec what it <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span>) <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> then then the diazapams? does that still make you sleepy/ can you take it when you need it or or: #dae8f4'>is it something you take all the time?and does it work? And what else or: #dae8f4'>is out there? going to my rheumy tomorrow in london and want him to write to my GP with a precription as she wont do anything without a consultants say so.

Did get dx'ed with occipital; neuralgia but I think there <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> more going on than that. Wonder if thor: #dae8f4'>is <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> somehow triggering autonomic problem and hence the BP problem but what do I do with thor: #dae8f4'>is? You can't get anything done in Canada quickly and with my EDS, I was stunned to be sent home after having an EKG. Only thing that didn't put BP up was if I laid on (L) side. Hx meningitor: #dae8f4'>is 1996 and had constant H/A same area since. I stopped complaining when no one seemed to find any explanation.
or: #dae8f4'>is the one who told me that valium helps with muscle spasms <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> than things like skelaxin and flexoril..it does seem to help and I haven't been taking my xanax while I am taking the valium.. I am just in so much pain that I have to do something here..Most of it or: #dae8f4'>is all on the left side..lower back and left hip..a very constant dull pain with the occasional sharp shooting pains.. thanks again everyone i appreciate all your advice and am going to write some of thor: #dae8f4'>is down to dor: #dae8f4'>iscuss with my Dr.
I also have lower back pain...a little different than yours. I need a fusion, so they say. I can't take either advil or tylenol cause of stomach problems. I use ice alot, and also...have you tried the lidoderm patch? That also has helped me. And...as everyone has said...your pain just might get or: #dae8f4'>better than you think after you've been off the drugs for awhile. It's day 24 for me and I don't hurt as much as before...go figure.
In fact, 2 50or: #dae8f4'>mgs pills did a <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> job for me than 15or: #dae8f4'>mgs of morphine (MS Contin) for pain relief. My problem was that I began to abuse the drug to the point of 40-50 pills per day in order to feel "normal" Good luck in finding some effective pain relief!
I took Soma or: #dae8f4'>which <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> like Skelaxin to help the first two days with that. I know you said the Skelaxin did not help you much with that. Maybe you could try taking some Tylenol PM at night to help you sleep?? If you do decide to do thor: #dae8f4'>is, don't take the Tylenol PM with any other sedatives you might have such as the muscle relaxer. Thor: #dae8f4'>is can depress your respiratory system too much and that would not be good. Sorry, I know I am rambling on!!! The nurse part of me or: #dae8f4'>is coming out!!!
usually when thor: #dae8f4'>is happens it <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> after 3-4 days..Thor: #dae8f4'>is <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> not getting <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span> other than the majority of the pain <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>is</span> in my left hip..it's a pretty constant dull pain with those occasional..ooops you moved wrong pains that take your breath away..I can't laugh,cough,or breath deep at all without that extra pain..there or: #dae8f4'>is alot of pressure and the other pain or: #dae8f4'>is a dull and sometimes shooting pain down the back of my thigh..(never had that before)..
I would like to get off of pain meds as soon as I feel <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>better</span>, and I honestly think that the diazepam helps me more than the Norco. Does anyone know where I can consult with a doctor online, or any doctors in Pittsburgh that are actually willing to lor: #dae8f4'>isten and help, especially when I;m in so much pain that I'm crying - or: #dae8f4'>which I rarely do. I'm a pretty tough kid. I've tried Flexeril, Skelaxin, Robaxin, and others.. the only two that have worked are Soma and Diazepam.
