I found an old bottle not real old of skelaxtin, I must have taken it and not liked it but today I gave in and took one. I dont really know if it helped but I dont know if I should take another later or if this isnt a good drug to be on. I cant take much more pain.

I've used it and it didn't do anything. If it makes you feel any better, it is a pregnancy category "B", which is the same as benadryl. Don't worry too much about it.

I have a bottle of Skelaxin that was prescribed by my primary. It made me very nauseous when taken as prescribed. I then tried Flexeril which seemed better. My physiatrist told me Skelaxin has more potential for becoming habit forming but Flexeril can cause more fatigue. I tend to use the Flexeril which
doesn't make me tired for some reason, but I have discovered that trigger point injections of lidocaine work better than either muscle relaxant. When I've had muscle spasms and taken muscle relaxants as my doctors recommend
I'm really not sure they do any thing for me. Once again, we really are all different with our body chemistries and how we metabolize drugs, so what's
great for one, often does nothing for another.

Oh, yes, I almost forgot. It DID make me throw up. Ughhhh! I was at someone's house when it hit me, too. Very embarassing.:o
