Cathy, I take Skelaxin 400mg 2x/day, sometimes 3x/day if the pain is bad enough. I have taken it for a long time and find that it helps put some of the pain at bay. when I take it 3x/day I get sleepier than otherwise. That is really the only side effect I get from the Skelaxin.

Just remember, everyone's body is different. Not everyone experiences the same side effects. I hope that it works for you and gives you some relief! Don't hesitate to PM me if you have more questions.

Cathy,

I take 800mg. It says to take them 4 times a day, but that makes me tired. If I take 2xday, im not too tired and deffinately not high either.I think they work, but I also take celebrex, an occasional vicodin and use lidocaine patches. I had horrible side effects from lyrica, cymbalta and flexeril so I try to be picky about my meds.

hope you find the right combo...psk
