How much Zanaflex works?

I'm prescribed 4mg zanaflex as needed for neck leg and back spasms. What dose are you on and what do you take it for? I'm wondering if my dr can increase it cuz its not really working as good as it used to

I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I am on standard treatment. Pain meds, Cymbalta and Lyrica. They help but I cannot do normal daily activities without a great deal of pain. I would like to try medical marijuana but don’t know if that is possible in the state of GA.
