Muscle relaxer: Used to relieve muscle tension and spasms usually following some mild to moderate traumatic event. Merely symptomatic relief, and surely does not cure anything. But what's wrong with feeling better as you heal?

Careful: This med will make you sleepy. Do not drive for at least 8 hours.
