Treatment of Chronic Male Pelvic Pain Syndrome
My previous question number 11098 refers.
Do we have Skelaxin(Metaxalone) or Flexeril(Cyclobenzeprine Hydrochloride) available in this country or anything similar to treat CPPS (Prostatitis).
They are I believe a type of agent which acts to block neuromuscular pain.
I would like to use something similar if they are not available.
Can you advise

Omega, I couldn’t find it in any of my books, but I’ll ask an urologist for you in the week. Please e-mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za if I don’t get back to you within a couple of days. Good luck.
