I don't know whether or not I should take a muscle relaxer

My neck is absolutely killing me. It’s not time to take pain meds for about 2 more hours. But the muscle relaxer makes me so sleepy and it’s only 6 pm. It will basically end my night if I take it. I don’t know what to do.

Would you rather sleep now or stay awake with discomfort? That’s basically your choices.

Could you get through with some heat or bio freeze until a little later?

I take flexeril occasionally for my back and it makes me tired too. :yawning_face:

I had really bad back pain for about 6-7 months. They prescribed Naproxen and a muscle relaxer. During the day the Naproxen took the edge off, but the pain didn’t ease until I took the muscle relaxer at night. It didn’t knock me out though.

yea, I guess I should just take it. It doesn’t knock me out, it just makes me useless.

Clozapine does that to me. Makes me useless for hours.
