Orphenadrine: is a muscle relaxant..there is usually no euphoria (high feeling) nor is the drug addictive... The real question is if ANY of the so called muscle relaxants WORK! Hope this helps Dr Z

Low risk addiction: The most common side effects include significant drowsiness, nausea, dizziness, and constipation. There are occasion reports of abuse with orphenadrine. Addiction, however, is not likely - these reports are likely about people who would do the same thing with commonly available drugs. Your drugs are nothing like narcotics, which carry a higher risk of addiction.
