Diagnosis first: You are currently taking a combination muscle relaxant and nsaid. Its hard to imagine a specific "leg" condition that this combination would be used to treat. Nsaid's are good for musculoskeletal pain, Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxant for spasm, and medications like Neurontin are for nerve pain. Diagnosis first. Other considerations for chronic pain are effexor, cymbalta, and savella (milnacipran).
