I was told that Flexeril has tendencies to make one relapse and was given a different muscle relaxant. Methocarbomal was one of them, but gave me headaches. They gave me Tizanidine.

Just wondering how to cut down on doctor visits.

I'll check it out. Probably ask the pharmacist first to see if I should ask a doctor as well for permission...
