Smile Norflex

Has anyone been prescribed Norflex, if so did it work for your back.

Re: Norflex

I guess no one currently on this board has any experience with Norflex.

Norflex is in the class of drugs known as skeletal muscle relaxers. The generic of Norflex is orphenadrine.

Other drugs that are often prescribed for back issues are Flexeril, Skelaxon, and valium, to name a couple.

Are you having muscle spasms or why was Norflex prescribed for you?

Re: Norflex

I have been prescribed Soma for my back muscle spams and I don't think it's working very well. I was wondering if anything else would be more effective.

Re: Norflex

In a word, yes. Call your doctor. There are many choices with muscle relaxers and I have found a far greater reaction to them than to any other classification of drugs. I've tried some that didn't do anything, and one I was given after surgery made me think I'd been given LSD! It seems to be a matter of trial and error as to which ones work well for the individual patient.

Fairly common ones are Flexeril and Skelaxin.
