Dear Ari

Thank you for visiting

Unfortunately, spasms are part of every day life, when you have a high spinal cord injury. I would suggest that you take Valuim 5mg tablets, twice daily, as well as Neurontin 300mg, twice daily. This should eleviate your symptoms, seeing that there are no other pathological reasons for the spasms. Your GP will be able to provide you with a prescription.

Kind regards

Dr Anrich Burger
