When I had Vicodin (for killing the pain of bartholin gland abscess), I did use one for my cramps. Just one, once a month. It helped immensely, better than the birth control even. However, I no longer have any. I now have muscle relaxers (I sprained my back last month while moving, doctor prescribed them to me and I only took one). Tizanidine, to be specific.
Have any of you treated menstrual cramps with muscle relaxers? Do they work at all? I'm expecting my period soon and NOTHING else works. I'm already dreading the pain and if I can use my muscle relaxers that are prescribed to me, I will be so happy.
