Thank you for your question.

Can you please let me know what your symptoms are and why you would like to use a muscle relaxant.

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you currently on any other medications for anything?

Please let me know.

Kind regards

The muscle relaxants that you can take include medications such as flexiril (cyclobenzaprine) or tizanidine that you can take with osteoporosis.

So you can mention these to your doctor.

Let me know if you have more questions.
