Paraflex side effects

Recommended Posts

I recently started paraflex (chlorzoxazone) for muscle spasms in my neck and upper back. I've only taken it before bed but today I took one during the day. About an hour later I became - and still am - dizzy and lightheaded. Like I had a good drink but not drunk.  I don't think I should drive.  Otherwise I feel ok. Still, anxiety tells me it's a serious thing! Google tells me dizziness is a rare side effect.  

Has anyone taken this? What are your side effects?

This is normal. I take a similar medication, zanaflex. Most of these meds you take at night to help with spasms at night. You also are most often not to drive under these type of meds. You will be just fine.
