    Do any of you know if Skelaxin is one of the muscle relaxers that helps with deep sleep?

    Hi - No,
    I do not think so. My doc gives me this for day time use & Flexeril (other muscle relaxer) for night time.
    Others opinions may differ.

    I didn't get much out of Flexiril, but I have found Tizanidine to work pretty well.

    and do not notice any help w/ sleep. I do take benedryl to help with sleep because it is not addictive and does make me sleep better through the night.

    My Rheumatologist gave me Flexaril to enhance the other meds at bedtime to improve sleep.

    I will ask him if the Skelaxin will work just as well as the Flexeril to enhance sleep.
