Cyclobenzaprine for restless legs?

I just thought of something while sitting here at work dreading the w/ds that I will go through when I am done tapering off this suboxone.  I just remembered that about a year ago I was prescribed some muscle relaxers for my neck (Cyclobenzaprine).  Do you guys think that if I take one or two of them when I am having a hard time sleeping from the restless legs s**t that it will help me sleep?

Flexeril is a muscle relaxant thats often prescribed for muscle stiffness and pain.    I have never heard of it for restless legs.

I doubt that will help much.  Get some Hylands Restfull Legs at Walgreens. Also,take some DMX  in the form of cold tablets. I've read it really works. Some doctors have used it for this "off label" with good results.
Try Melatonin for sleep...start with 3 capsules.
Good luck~
