Relax!

I saw an orthopaedic surgeon (oral) last week because I have TMJ. He prescribed me Flexoril (I think that's how it's spelled), to take prior to falling asleep. Apparently I clench my teeth in my sleep, despite the fact that I sleep in a bite guard. I know, ZEXY!, right?

Anyhoodle, combined with my super-intense weekend at a horse show in Georgia this past weekend, I feel like I could sleep for six days straight. Me no likey the drugged feelings. Must decide if agonizing jaw pain is worth the trade for "What's in your hands, it's in your hands, zombie zombie zombie-e-e!"

uh, take it from me, that you need 12 hours from taking flexeril to come back to your senses, assuming 10mg dosage. I find the same results from 5mg without the 12 hour window. I break mine in half and it lasts twice as long.

If you decide that flexeril is not to your liking, I will gladly take it off your hands :p

I clench my jaw so badly in my sleep that I can barely open my mouth when I wake up in the morning. I'm busting my teeth all up, its a sad, sad thing.

P.S. Flexoril is for pussies.
