Wow, 2 posts in 1 day; unusual for me lately. Anyway, are muscle relaxers safe? I was curious because the heart is a muscle and do these muscle relaxers also relax the heart? This may not be a very smart question but I haven't tried them and have read that someone takes them at night to help relieve the pain. I have skelaxin and flexeril. I just have been afraid to take them. I have taken valium for relaxing but wondering if I should stop the valium and take the muscle relaxers? My doctor gave me both but I was afraid to take them both; silly me, huh? Any advice, opinions? Thank you all so much, BlueSky555 Any advice?
