What do you suggest if my friend admitted to me that she is addictive to norflex (orphenadrine). Long ago she had a back operation and was addictive?

Not sure what ? is: What can I suggest for you? None of us can ultimately get someone else to stop hurting themselves — they have to decide that it is a problem. You can express your concern about them and tell them you care, but pushing your point of view can become nagging and be counterproductive. Norflex (orphenadrine) does not cause physical dependency, so it is a psychological issue. Try Alanon for your issues with her. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with severe back spasms on my lower right side. I have tried heat, TENS, Norflex, (orphenadrine) and stretching. Any other Tx ideas?

I have been diagnosed with severe back spasms on my lower right side. I have tried heat, TENS, Norflex, (orphenadrine) and stretching. Any other Tx ideas?

Back spasms: Some easy remedies are magnesium — we use it in IV drips but you can soak in Epson salt bath — just put about 5-6 cups in the bath (this is magnesium). Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer. I also like high dose omega 3 fish oil (around 5000 mg) at this does it start working as an anti-inflammatory. I prefer skelaxin (metaxalone) as the muscle relaxer I use. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If you have referred pain to your neck from the tmj's (jaw joints), then palpation of the joints should elicit discomfort. If that is the case an occlusal splint may help with symptoms,. ...Read more
