I just wanted all of you to know that I am so excited to be here! I hope each of you has a day with minimal pain. I am better so far today than I have been in quite some time, yay! Hope it sticks, lol! I finally gave in to taking the muscle relaxer with my other meds. I don't know if that's what made such a difference or not. We'll see. Do any of you have to take that too? I bucked it for a long time because I was afraid of taking it with pain meds and gabapentin. Its methocarbamol.

Sleepingbeauty, muscle relaxers help my fibro pain, especially my calves. I sleep better when I have to take them. Mine is Parafon Forte. Wishing you a great day! 🙏🌼

I take Zanaflex and it knocks me stupid. I forget conversations and fall asleep eating or having a conversation. I only take it now if I'm desperate (which I'm getting close to today).

That's the one I was on before this one and I threw that stuff in the trash! I was like i had been tranquilized! I told them I couldn't take that mess. So they prescribed this one. Much better. I can function on this. You may want to ask about it.

I've been on oxycodone, klonapin, xanex, and tizanidine (muscle relaxer) for almost two years now. I was on methacarbomals for awhile but switched when they weren't working as well
