So I am on valium for back spasms and various opiates for pain depending on how bad it is that day. Anyway valium makes it much easier to fall asleep just from the reduced pain aspect of it. However it seems that no matter what time he falls asleep he'll wake up at like 10 am. Not a huge problem because his earliest class is 11, but he's used to waking up anywhere in between 7-9 depending on how late he was up. Then his doc put him on skelaxin which he said shouldn't sedate him as much, but it does even more and it's not even as fun! Is there anything in the benzo class that will relax the muscles in his back without keeping him down and out for so damn long?
