i took 2 mg tizanidine days ago how long should wait before taking phenobarbital ?
this is what i found about that phenobarbital oral will decrease the level or effect of tizanidine oral by affecting hepatic enzyme CYP1A2 metabolism. ## it was exactly two days ago i took tizanidine ## Hello, Cradle81! How are you? That would generally only be a concern if they were taken very close together, as in hours of each other, not days apart…..and Tizanidine is just muscle relaxant, so reducing the efficacy of it is not as big of a concern as if it were a heart medication, or other life-sustaining substance. You should double check this with your doctor or pharmacist to be safe, but most likely there's nothing that you need to worry about here. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you? This is a prescription medication and you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor has prescribed it for you. That said, this is a 4mg Tizanidine tablet and yes, you are correct, it is a muscle relaxant, but since I am not your doctor, I can't tell you what the right dosage would be for you to take. Is there anything else I can help with?

white pill riso
What is this pill for, white , oval whit the letters RlSO , and a cross in the back ## Hi, Shortie! How are you? The markings on these are a bit hard to read, they tend to not imprint very well, but what I believe you're seeing is actually meant to be R180 and the tablet contains 4mgs of Tizanidine, which is a muscle relaxant, it's a generic for Zanaflex. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache. Learn more Zanaflex details here. Can you please double check the people and see if that S is perhaps actually an 8? Thanks!

white oblong pill with 724 & M on the other side
White Pills the are oblong & have 724 on one side & the other has a M on it, What could this be? ## 724 M white pill is in the generic name, Tizanidine 4mg, or brand name, Zanaflex 4mg. It is a fairly potent muscle relaxer. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache. It's a very good muscle relaxer. ## Catscry, the pill you described that contains 4mgs of Tizanidine is a round tablet and the M724 are both on the front of the tablet. I can't find anything listed for an oval or oblong pill that has an M on one side and a 724 on the opposite. Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? ## Verwon, I confirmed this pill as Tizanidine, the generic, because I have actually had this exact pill prescribed and given to me by both a Walgreens and a CVS p...
