      Once I'm done with muscle relaxers I guess I might have to start at 5mg and then 10mg usually don't feel to good for a few days when starting

    It just shows how much medical assessments are so misjudged! I was on 25mg Amitriptyline and was put on muscle relaxers but was not told to stop taking the former at all????? Good to hear you managed your cold turkey easily!
