I have taken Robaxin twice now and each time it works great for me and my back pain, it seems to stop my back getting worse and within 24 hours I am back to fully fit again.

After trying several different muscle relaxers, my doctor had me try this one. It has really helped the severe muscle spasms that I have in my back. I can work with no drowsiness. This med really works for me

I was given this for muscle strain and muscle spasm after a re-injury at work. I was given Flexoril the first time. They gave me this because they said it wasn't as harsh. They were right. The side effects of the dizziness and sleepiness isn't as bad as with the other drug and I felt much better using it along with a heat pad.

I had a major back surgery and was having severe muscle spasms after. I could not get out of bed nor could I walk for long without having a muscle spasm. They had started to give me this medication and within two doses, I had seen a difference. I am glad they put me on it.

This drug has worked for me. I have 2 herniated discs, and Deg. disc disorder. I am upset that is for short term only. It's the only thing I have taken that works very well. I have been on it for 3 years but my Dr. recently took me off of it. Haven't found anything else that works yet.

I was prescribed Robaxin for muscle spasms(side effect of Degenerative Disk Disease) and almost immediately developed small, itchy bumps on soft tissue areas of my body. I was subsequently advised to stop taking it. Oatmeal baths and Benadryl were also advised as to relieve this side effect.
