I am sorry you have neck pain.

what dose of cyclobenzaprine? 5mg?

this can be used up to 3 times a day to help to try to relax muscles

you can also use a heating pad and ice packs alternating on your neck to help relax neck muscles and ice down inflammation and pain

have you tried heating pads and ice packs yet?
