Does Anyone Take Zanaflex For Muscle Pains/spasms And If So Does It Help.

Rheumy ordered it for me today.

My Rheumy told me not to take those. And that the side effects compared to benefits just isn’t worth it. Later on I thought my rheumy is right! The goal should be to be on fewer meds and not more meds with horrible side effects.

Hey hey doll. Yes. I take it and yes it helps. I have learned to listen to my body more. Where is the pain?

Have you had any recent labs done? Possible low potassium, calcium or etc.? I have alot of muscle spasms at night, when I take muscle relaxers. It causes me to feel sluggish next day.

I take an over the counter muscle cramp med from Hylands and it does help. I usually get lots of cramps in my calves and back at night when I try to sleep.
