Hello, folks. My friend has been diagnosed with torticollis. I have heard that this can be corrected with surgery, although his doctor recommended only muscle relaxants for the beginning. I wonder how this can be effective. Can anyone tell me something more about this? I will be very grateful. Bye, folks!

Hi to you too. I am not sure if muscle relaxants alone can help. They work through receptors for GABA neurotransmitters. However, they can be used alone or in combination with other drugs. They are usually used with the ones that act through receptors for acetylcholine. Valium is one of the most famous ones here. If your friend has some doubts, he should discuss that with his doctor. He will tell him the details. Bye! Good luck!

Hi. I have also heard about the possibility of using muscle relaxants in the torticollis treatments. They can be used alone. However, they can show some side effects. Your friend should be careful there. Those would be: fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness and weakness. People also complain on: diarrhea, dry mouth, appetite changes and upset stomach. I hope this will help. Please, let me know if you need some more info. Bye!
