Tizanidine Overview

Tizanidine (trade names Zanaflex, Sirdalud) is a drug that is used as a muscle relaxant. It is a centrally acting α2 adrenergic agonist. It is used to treat the spasms, cramping, and tightness of muscles caused by medical problems such as multiple sclerosis, ALS, spastic diplegia, back pain, or certain other injuries to the spine or central nervous system.

tizanidine out of system

I was prescribed Tizanidine 4 mg and took 30 within a 4 week span. How long would this amount take to get out of my body? Any info appreciated! ## Hello, Beezer! How are you? The FDA classifies Tizanidine as a muscle relaxant, so there is no reason to worry about being on it. It is not addictive or habit forming. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Did you have a bad reaction to it?

white round pill u 159 on the front
1 Reply RSS
It's a white round pill with u 159 on it and I want to know what kind of medicine is in it ## Hi Sally, Is there any chance that your pill might say U 169 as opposed to U 159? Reason I ask is because the round white pill I found has U 169 on it and reportedly contains 4mgs of Tizanidine hydrochloride; used as a muscle relaxer. For verification, the pill itself is manufactured by Unichem Pharma based out of the US. Please post back if you have any additional information regarding that finding. Hope this helps!

I have a small white round pill with lines cutting it in quarters and on the other side it has E and below it is 44. I was told it was a roxy 30! Can anybody help?? ## Based on the description provided, this is NOT a Roxy. The imprint E 44 on a white round is identified as Tizanidine hydrochloride (4 mg). Manufacturer: Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc. National Drug Code (NDC): 00185-4400 Tizanidine is a drug that is used as a muscle relaxant. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Tizanidine Details Hope this info helps! ## Be VERY careful with tizanidine. I had an rx for it for a gunshot wound. It worked great for about a year and then literally overnight it became so powerful that it nearly killed me. I took my normal dose at 8 am and by 9am I could hardly walk, talk, etc. My ...

i found a large round white pill with m 324 what is this
1 Reply RSS
I found a large white pill with M 324. What is this? My son found this, and gave it to me. I am very concerned. ## Hi Sussn, How would describe the imprint in so far as the way it's arranged on the pill? For example: Is the "M" sitting over top of the "324" or is the the "M" on one side and "324" on the other; etc? Based on your description, the closest match I'm finding is a round white pill (approx. 10.00 mm in size) with an "M" over top of "724" on one side and is cross-scored (+) on the back. This particular pill reportedly contains 4mgs of Tizanidine hydrochloride, which is used as a muscle relaxant. For verification, the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 00378-0724 and is manufactured by Mylan. I hope this helps!

What is this pill used for and is it a narcotic? ## Hello, Tanya! How are you? I believe the marking you're looking at is actually TI-2. It is manufactured by Apotex and they list it as containing 2mgs of Tizanidine. The FDA actually classifies this medication as a muscle relaxant and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Was taking soma till my insurance put me on tizanadine 4mg once a day which does nothing is that a comparison choice? ## Hello, Annie! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. No, none of the others are really as good as the Soma. The closest might be Skelaxin, which contains the active ingredient Metaxalone, so you may want to ask your doctor about trying it. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I WAS TAKING SOMA 3 AT BEDTIME INSURANCE DOES NOT WANT TO PAY FOR SOMA NO MORE THEY GAVEME TIZANIDINE 4MG HOW MUCH TIZADINE I SHOULD TAKE AT BEDTIME ## Hi I saw your thead and if your ins does want to oay for your soma, be aware that soma is an inexpensive medication.

Tizanidine Abnormal Dreams Hallicinations
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Tizanidine 12mg at night and 4 mg in the morning for over 3 months and have been experiencing some alarming abnormal dreams that caused Hallicinations. It seems the Hallicinations occur when I am already tired and then take my normal medication dose at night. Until last night the Hallicinations never caused me to jump out of bed in extreme fright. I typically remember when I have the hallucinations and they always frighten me. The Hallicinations are always thinking someone is in my room and I always demand "who are you?". Last night when the same thing occurred I actually jumped physically out of bed and tried to escape my room past the hallucinated "person" and remember having difficulty getting out the door of my room. I made it out and it seemed at ...
