Oral Muscle Relaxers May Not Be The Only Answer

    Oral muscle relaxants are usually used by physicians to address upper and lower back pain caused by muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, tension headaches and MS muscle pain.

    Some examples of oral muscle relaxants are: carisoprodol (Soma), cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), diazepam (Valium), metaxalone (Skelaxin), methocarbamol (Robaxin), baclofen (Lioresal).  These agents are designed to work in the Central Nervous System (CNS).  These agents inhibit the impulses or sensations in the CNS that transmit the muscle pain by causing sedation, drowsiness.  Of concern, some may even cause dependence with long term use. Several of these agents also have abuse potential, and their prescription is strictly controlled.  People are advised not to drive or operate heavy machinery while taking oral muscle relaxers.

    Cramp911 relieves muscle cramps in as little as 15 seconds.  It has been reported by many people that Cramp911 exhibits muscle relaxant properties to relieve neck and back spasms plus muscle spasms related with Fibromyalgia and MS.  One major advantage that Cramp911 has over oral muscle relaxants is the absence of drowsiness.  People can continue to perform their daily activities free from taking a pill, and without concern of drowsiness.  Cramp911 is applied topically, and relief has been reported to last up to 8 hours.
