Re: Question about getting meds..
You can consider trying the Flexeril and if that works for you, then no need to fill the Tizanidine. Or if Flexeril doesn't work you have the Tizanidine. Neither are controlled substances but a concerned pharmacist could call the doctor to make sure he's aware you are filling both. When I tried Robaxin in didn't work at all so my PM doc put me back on Soma. When I went in to fill it one week after Robaxin the pharmacist asked if I was aware that Robaxin and Soma are both muscle relaxants, etc. I told her Robaxin has made me nauseous so I was changing back to Soma.
I did at one time try Zanaflex/Tizanidine but it made me so dizzy I had to end that one too. I keep reverting back to Soma 350.
