Cyclobenzaprine doesn't seem to do any affect what's going on?

Not enough info: There really is not enough information to answer your question. Cyclobenzaprine is classified as a muscle relaxant although it probably works through mild sedation which helps with the relaxation. I am not sure why you are being prescribed this medication so I cannot really tell you why it is not helping you.

How long do I have to wait to take another cyclobenzaprine 10 mg?

Read label on bottle: If you look on your medication bottle your doctor will have given you exact directions as to how long to wait between doses. Often times it's simply daily. Other times it's multiple times per day but it depends on many factors so one size DOES NOT fit all! I'm happy to be available for additonal questions or a private consult if you'd write me at: www.
