Suggest medication for muscle pain after having a spine surgery

My wife takes cyclobenzaprine for muscle pain related to her having had spine surgery.Because we do not have any health insurance to help pay for them,we cannot afford to buy them as they are fairly expensive.Is there any over the counter item that will work to relieve muscle pain as cyclobenzaprine does.If there is one,can you tell us what it is.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your wife and let me tell you that you should encourage her for bearing the pain because once the threshold achieved the natural analgesic effects starts and this is the best way to fight against the pain otherwise all the pain killing medicine are same just their potency matters, take care and have a nice day.
