1 Reply RSS
Can your please tell me the difference between: U169 and R180 I was taking U169 but when I got my new medicine I noticed the shape was different and the number on the new pill had R180. Can you please tell me the difference between the two before I take the R180. Thank you. ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? They both contain 4mgs of the muscle relaxant Tizanidine, they have just been manufactured by different pharmaceutical companies, which is very normal with generics. At any given time, the one a pharmacy carries may change, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, when they needed to restock their supply. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

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 pill that i found in my house. It has a U 159 on one side and and x on the other side. It have exactly what i just said. Please tell me what kind of pill it is.

I was put on anti anxiety meds I wish to God I would have never touched tizanidine I do not recommend them to anyone who wants to not have anxiety!!!! Horrible medication!!! ## The last time I took tizanidine, I had severe hallucinations for hours in the middle of the night. I have never experienced anything like this ever--it was very frightening.

I was wandering if anyone could tell me if the morning dose drowsiness and dizziness will lessen as I take it, sleeping a for two hours or so during the day isn't very productive. ## Tizanidine is a muscle relaxant it can cause such side effects, but yes, they should taper off after awhile, as your body adjusts to the medication, but that may take about a month.
