  • muscle relexant

    Can you please tell me if there are any muscle relexants that do no increase your hunger or cause weight gain?

    There are several. I prefer hyoscyamine.

      I take Flexrill with no problems.

        I take Zanaflex and havent had that problem with it. I have taken Flexeral and Soma in the past and havent had that happen with them either. Good luck, hope you find something to help!

          I"m taking Flexeril 10 mg, also, with no problems, except that it makes me very sleepy. I preferred Valium 2 mg.

            I'm with the popular vote (Flexeril/Cyclobenzaprine) Honestly, I think the anti-depressants make me put on more weight, than all other meds combined!

            Status: Diagnosed October 2006 via cystoscopy with hydrodistention. Max anesthetized bladder capacity only 250 cc's. Mast cells and pinpoint bleeding found.

            Remission for me means less pain for more days than not. Frequency is inevitable with a bladder this tiny! That is ok though. The difference between when I was diagnosed and now, is that I have embraced that fact. Me and the loo, we are one.

                I am not sure what the generic name is of it. But, another one that several take is Skelaxin. I have tried it too, but the Zanaflex worked best for me. I take 4 mg 3 times a day. Hycosamine is also one I use, since it is an ingrediant in another one of my meds, Urimar-T.

                Hopefully, one of the ladies who takes the Flexerill (sp?) will be able to tell you the generic name.

                    flexeril generic is cyclobenzaprine. I take 20 to 30 mg a day. I haven't had it make me feel hungry.

                      I've only been able to take 10 mg Flexeril at makes me so sleepy. I see you take up to 30 mg a day...did the sleepy side effect wear off after continued use?
                      I'm probably going to have to ask for 5 mg tabs, since the ones I have aren't scored, so I guess they're not supposed to be split.
