Muscle Relaxers

No, nothing like you are looking for.... for a very good reason too. If good pain pills were that easy to get to, the whole nation would be addicted.

If I were you, I'd drink a whole bottle of wine... like 5 glasses. That'll loosen ya up!

Hm, I don't think so. I tend to agree with some of the others...maybe a shot of brandy or tequila (that's a whole other post! LOL) might do you some good. The closest thing that I've gotten is Advil PM to at least help me sleep. It helps with the pain, too.

Combined with the dreaded BenGay or IcyHot (applied topically, of course) is good. And - stretching is good. Try 5 slow stretches and hold them for 10-15 seconds (I assume the pain is probably from your shouldertops up the neck and into the base of your skull. Wild guess).

No, unfortunately I don't think there's much out there in the way of muscle relaxers OTC here in the US. We'd ALL be hitting the pharmacy if that was the case.

Ask the pharmacist. I got OTC muscle relaxers but cannot remember what it was called. But it really worked.

That's so cute, a bendy rock. Try taking a really hot bath or using a heating pad. You can also schedule a message. Feel better soon.

The best I've found (besides Aleve) is ThermaCare wraps. Stick 'em on your neck, and they melt the pain away.

Excedrin Back and Body works wonders, but as far as muscle relaxers, etc. well they are Rx only!

Try a hot tub soak, or a sauna (at the gym). Begin to exercise your neck (slow rolling for side to side, etc) each night and in time you'll see a new flexibility.

You might try a Benedryl; an antihistime tab-- they knock me out and I sleep pretty soundly and get really relaxed

I highly recommend a good massage and use that new product ACTIVE ON That should do the trick
