A:

There are several muscle relaxers, or skeletal muscle relaxants. They include cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), methocarbamol (Robaxin), and tizanidine (Zanaflex), among others. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, there is no clear evidence that one is better or stronger than another.
