    • Overview

      In professional practice, numerous medications are disguised as “muscle relaxants”, however just how many actually are true relaxants of peripheral muscle? In this discussion on the overall classes of “muscle relaxants”, we will endeavor to evaluate these medications based on respective mechanisms of action and truly decipher just what actual type of medications the stereotypical “muscle relaxants” actually are. We will also aim to improve patient care by providing a strategic thought process into the appropriate selection of these medications for use in patients with muscle spasticity and/or muscle spasms. At the conclusion of our discussion, we will be able to declare that “the gig is up!” and reveal the true identity of these so-called “muscle relaxants”!
