I am sorry to hear they are banned in the UK. They are the only muscle relaxer that truly works for me. There is some interaction with certain medications and an increased risk of stroke if I remember correctly. I wonder if that is part of the reason for the ban. Many patients do well on Flexeril aka Cyclobenzaprine and Baclofen aka Cyclobenzaprine. In fact Flexeril (brand name in USA) is the most prescribed muscle relaxant for Fibromyalgia type pain.

I hope that your doctor has prescribed you an alternative muscle relaxer by now.

Take care,
