Answer

Muscle Relaxants

Muscle relaxants help to relax tight muscles and can be used in conjunction with NSAIDs.

Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril)

Muscle relaxants may be helpful in some patients with LBP and seem to have additional benefits when used in conjunction with NSAIDs. Muscle relaxants can be used as short-term adjunctive medications and should be taken hs to take advantage of their sedating side effects.
