white oval tablet with cross on 1 side & R180 on the other
I got these from my friend for pain until I get to see my pcp. Really would like to know what this is because it works. ## This is a bad idea you should never Take medicine prescribed to someone else even if you have same symptoms . There are many factors a doctor has to take ineffect to give you medicine. Other meds or over the counter, age, weight, ## @Joyce (thread starter), Based on my research the white oval pill you're describing is identified as a 4mg Tizanidine hydrochloride tablet, which is mainly marketed as a skeletal muscle relaxant for treating muscle spasms, but happens to have a few other off-label uses as well. For verification, it's also reported to be manufactured by Par Pharmaceuticals. I hope this helps answer your question! Patty is right though about not ta...

e 44 round white pill tizanidine
I suspect my husband is insufflating pills. I found a bunch of small pills with E44 on one side and lines on the other side. Could he be making himself feel high off of these pills because they are in the same box as a broken credit card and a cut in half straw.

round white pill with TI on one side and a chevron on the other side
An unlabeled bottle of small white pill with TI on one side and a chevron on the other side was found. I was thinking it Tizanidine, but it does not appear like any I have seen. ## Hello, Nate!

Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

Tizanidine Abnormal Dreams Hallicinations
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 ...

tizanidine 4mg or soma 350mg stronger
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 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?

I also have m 724 with a cross on back side i know its a muscle relaxer but is ut safe to sleep on i been taking half i didn't know if the whole thing would hurt me or make me sleep better thankyou ## Hello, Deedee! 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?
