Amrix (Cyclobenzaprine) is a muscle relaxant used, in combination with rest and physical therapy, to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain, injury or spasm. It can reduce the severity and frequency of spasms, and reduce pain by relaxing the muscles. Amrix is a centrally acting muscle relaxant, which means it doesn’t directly affect the muscles. It exhibits its affects through the central nervous system by blocking signals from the brain that would normally cause the muscles to tense and spasm. By doing this, it can relieve muscle pain and stiffness without serious disruption to muscle function.
