Would Flexeril or Skelaxin (metaxalone) be more effective for upper trap & neck spasms/tension? Which one is less likely to cause unpleasant side effects?

In brief: Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl)

This medication can be used on a longer-term basis and actually has a chemical structure related to some of TCA.
It will also improve your sleep. The main concern is urinary retention in males with large prostates. Check with your doctor what is best medication for your individual situation.
