 2  TMJD,severe back/neck spasms I've taken this on several occasions, and each time have noticed that the mental side effects are atrocious. That said, this drug does relieve the pain associated with severe muscular tension. Unfortunately, as soon as the medication wears off, I find myself somewhere between rage and profound depression. I'm groggy, weepy, needy, and feel entirely out of control for upwards of 2-3 days afterward. For me, these effects outweigh the benefits of this drug. The medication works; however, it should be dispersed with a label stating that you might what to jump out of a window when you finally wake up from the mini-coma it induces. F 27 1 weeks

 4  Used to treat muscle stiffness. Drowsiness- Itís advisable that this medication not be taken if you do not intend to rest the next day. Use care when operating a motor vehicle and/or electronic devices that require mental alertness. Please be advised that this medication is muscle relaxant, NOT an analgesic, therefore it does not effectively provide pain relief. I use this medication to treat muscle spasms/cramps and stiffness. My usual dose is 10-20 mg qhs PRN. M 27 3 years
10-20 mg 1X D

 4  Fibromyalgia Fatigue, dizziness Normally this medicine isn't used on a long term basis but my doctor made an exception because it helps fight the fibromyalgia muscle spasms so that I can get a good night's sleep. Because I've been on it so long, I no longer feel tired from it during the day. It has not lost its effectiveness nor have I needed a dosage increase. This drug can easily become addicting so use in moderation is advisable. F 23 2 years

 4  Tension Headache at base of skull Drugged feeling in the morning...but tolerable. Able to go to work. Nothing would release my tension headache..which I've had 24hrs per day for 12 weeks. This did start to release it. I take 10mg per night and 5mg in the day. I am also on Paxil and probably the two together make me feel more drugged than other people would. But it's worth it to get some relief. F 41 3 days
