 5  Muscle sprain & spasms Dry mouth, thirsty all the time & slight drowsiness I've been Amrix (which I found out was the ER version of Flexeril) for about 2 weeks now. In the beginning I didn't notice much of anything so I think you need to take it a few days before noticing any results. When it did kick in and my body was receiving it at the same time each day, it did wonders. This coupled with Ibuprofen was a lifesaver. Spasms stopped spazing out and the strain slowly got better. I would recommend this to other patients however; it is pricey. Luckily my doctor gave me a coupon that made my copay $5! F 36 2 weeks

 5  Muscle Spasms/Lower Back Pain Desire to sleep was strong at first but i take it at night, so that dosen't bother me. With the coupon provided by the manufacturer on their website, the cost is about $10 a month. When I have extreme pain, I add a Vicodin or Tramadol. It has also just recently went generic ! I also use this drug for PMS/Menstrual Cramps and it works great. I would encourage new users to to start this drug over the weekend, so you can see how your body will react. I have no problems, driving or going to work after taking this drug, but everyone is different. F 28 180 days

History
 5  Muscle Spasms/Scapular Bursitis Expected drowsiness & Dry Mouth. Worked well for me. I had the expected drowsiness initially the first few days of taking the medicine but that has since diminished. Doesn't really make me that drowsy now. This did help with the chronic muscle spams that I had, but just seem to take the edge off. Might require slightly higher dose than 10 mg, but will let the Doctor decide that when I return. Only real side effect was dry mouth, or feeling thirsty. M 29 1 months

 5  back spasm A bit of dry mouth, but not enough to stop taking the medicine. My doctor told me to take it between 6 and 7 PM so that I wouldn't be drowsy the next day. He also said it didn't matter if I took it with or without food. It worked really well and I wasn't tired the next morning like some of the other muscle relaxers have made me in the past. M 28 10 days

 1  muscle relaxer/pain I took this pill roughly 10-10:30 Tuesday night. It's now 11:48 and I still don't feel right. I've probably been awake about 6 hours today max. I just keep sleeping and I feel so lethargic and not right. F 40 1 days

 2  neck-nerve/muscle pain extreme dizziness and fatigue I took just one pill at about 8:30 at night and the next day at 7am, i could barely get out bed for work. I almost fell asleep driving and the fatigue and dizziness have lasted all day so far and its 1pm in the afternoon. I hope it wears off soon but im worried the feeling will last longer due to other patients experience. The Amrix drug fact page i dont believe is honest about what percentage of patients experience somnolence and dizziness. I will never take this again F 29 1 days

 1  Back spasm Extreme drowsiness, faintness, brain fog, zoning/focus trouble, excessive sleep and moodiness. Took it one time for my spasm last Saturday, and it worked great on the spasm but left me dysfunctional for two days afterward. Still not feeling myself, and here it is Tuesday. Will stick with pain meds, heat, and PT. F 49 1 days

 3  Pain in the shoulder joint Extreme drowsiness and disorientation. I took the pill in the evening not long before going to bed. I had a very hard time getting up in the morning and was disoriented and groggy at school (I'm a teacher). I felt like a Zombie all day. I fell asleep while proctoring an exam, then later after school while doing prep work on computer. At home, I fell asleep at the dinner table. After dinner, I went to bed and slept for 9 1/2 hours, extremely rare for me to sleep more than 6 hours. The pain went away though and I was glad I didn't need to take another pill. M 63 1 days

 4  Neck Spasms Chronic Increased AM drowsiness. At first getting up in the AM was challenging. I stopped taking the drug after 10days. My dr convinced me to give it another try. I have been on it again for 3 weeks and feeling better than I have in years. I am still very tierd in the AM but work full time at a professional position. Since I am not in pain I can focus better on work and less on pain. F 39 21 days

 4  neck & back pain headache when i first wake up but gone within 2-3 hours this medication does not make me drowsy at all, no hangover feeling the next day. i was afraid i would have trouble getting up the next day, but although it helps me sleep, i have no trouble getting up. it helps me a lot more than short term muscle relaxers! i'm by no means pain free, but it does take the edge off F 35 1 months

 4  Deep muscle spasms The most notable side effect is drowsiness; since it's a 24-hour extended release medication, it comes with 24-hour extended release drowsiness! I take Amrix 15mg capsules, 1-2 as needed for deep muscle spasms. It's great for releasing muscles that are locked tight and not responding to shorter acting muscle relaxants, but it's not suitable for long-term daily use because of the drowsiness. F 36 6 months

 1  Low back pain (herniate disc L4-L5) I took Amrix 30 mgs at 5pm and the next day I could not function. Very sleepy and "drugged up" feeling. Felt like I could not concentrate. All I wanted to do was sleep. I will never take this medication again. F 49 1 days

AMRIX  (CYCLOBENZAPRINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Cyclobenzaprine is used short-term to treat muscle spasms. It is usually used along with rest and physical therapy. It works by helping to relax the muscles. This medication is not recommended for use in older adults because they may be at greater risk for side effects while using this drug.
