Katie,

It's always hard to place cause and effect when there is are different meds flying at you from all sides.

But just to answer the direct question: No, you cannot expect the effect of any blood pressure drug to be effective 3 weeks after taking it, probably not even after 3 days!

The flexeril (which I hate like poison) can be causing MANY of your symptoms....it'a really TOUGH drug to tolerate for many people. SOMA (carisoprodol) is a much kinder muscle relaxant IMHO but all the docs are very quick with the flexeril prescriptions.
