Muscle Spasms / Tremors Question

hey ,,,

Can anyone suggest some medication that actually works when it comes to helping ease muscle spasms? ...Clofen has helped me with the easing of cramps ...but nothing has ever stopped the acutual spasms causing the weakness / cramping .....

First of all, does your doc know why? I had a lot of problems with cramping and tremors when my calcium and magnesium was low after a serious illness. Might be a good idea to have those blood levels checked out.

Yes, and don't forget your B vitamins. A multivitamin supplement. I've forgotten the last two days, going right now to get mine. I take methocarbamol muscle relaxant.

Is that methocarbomal a pill you have to get a script for?

Yes, you have to get a prescription, and it's 4 times a day for about a year, but my problem's lasting beyond that.

I was hoping you'd describe your symptoms, and I'll look at previous posts to see if you did. Your Dr. might prefer a different muscle relaxant. This is the first time I've heard of this one. Have had pulled muscles now and then all my life, and don't remember what brand I had then.

My calcium is about 10. Is that good?
