    I took flexeril for a while but it didn't seem to help me much and I didn't like the weight gain side effect so I quit using it.

    Good luck,

    I used Flexeril for a few years. I now use Klonopin. It works much better for me.

    The Flexeril caused weight gain and I was always hung over the next morning, and to be honest sometimes it did not work. With Klonopin I fall asleep within 10 minutes and I stay asleep, no teeth grinding or leg kicking, wake up next day refreshed, no hang over feeling. It also helps my general anxiety feeling.
