Klonopin and my muscles

Posted by Glydin on November 14, 2005, at 7:14:23

Klonopin is not noted for "great" muscle relaxant properties... BUT - it seems to work well in that regard for me. I have osteoarthritis which has led to some compensitory muscle issues. Plus, my anxiety brings on muscle tension problems. What I have noted while off Klonopin is an increase in this discomfort level with muscle soreness and achiness. SOOOO, I decided to restart a low dose of K to "see" if that helped. It has. I have done the usually prescribed muscle relaxants and I do use something occ. for pain (OTC). The muscle relaxants do not seems to do as well a job - without the baggage - as K does for me. Anxiety issues are well controlled without the use of K - the tension stuff withstanding which is a multicause problem. If K continues to help with this - which impacts my overall functioning - well, I'm back on the K trail for a while for that reason.

This is all fine and dandy with my docs, so me and my "friend" are a team again.
