Muscle Relaxant. This medication is used on label for muscle spasm and off label as a sleep aid and bruxism control. In many patients it has a sedating effect and also can produce dry mouth. It is currently being tried on fibromyalgia patients. Chemically it is closely related to the tricyclic antidepressants. Lower doses are used to avoid side effects still providing the therapeutic effect.
