Hi
I haven't been on here for awhile. But in January the gp put me on to Dantrolene tablets to help control the pain and spasms in my Achillies tendons. For awhile this worked but over time I had to increase the dose.

Eventually I ended up on 5 dantrolene a day but this made me feel sick and my legs would go into really bad spasms especially at night. So I dropped the dose down to 4 a day. But 4 a day didn't work all the time and I'd have nights were i got very little sleep due to pain and spasms. I'd also get pain at times during the day.

On Friday the gp has added Clonazepam into the mix and has told me to take this about 30mins before I go to bed. Has anyone else tried this tablet? Or the combination of dantrolene and clonazepam? Any bodies experiences people have had or advise would be good to hear.
