Is methocarbamol good for migraine? Muscle Relaxers – such as cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), diazepam (Valium), metaxalone (Skelaxin) and methocarbamol (Robaxin) may help as well, especially with neck pain (present in 70% of migraine patients). They can also help to promote relaxation leading to a deeper sleep which again may break a stubborn migraine.
Will muscle relaxers help a migraine? Muscle relaxants can be surprisingly effective for the prophylactic treatment of migraine headaches. It is surprising because migraine is a brain disorder and not a disorder of muscles.
What is the best muscle relaxer for migraines? A safe, non-addicting muscle relaxant, tizanidine is useful for migraine and chronic daily headache. Tizanidine may be used on an as-needed basis for milder headaches, or for neck or back pain. Cyclobenzaprine (10 mg) is helpful for sleeping, and helps some with migraine and chronic daily headache.
What is the most prescribed drug for migraines? The most commonly prescribed class of drugs for migraine are the triptans.
