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. ## Hello, Michelle! How are you? I can't say as to whether or not he's tried getting high from them, but these tablets won't do that. It is just a muscle relaxant and its common side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Have you talked to him about it?

round white pill with u 169 on one side
Large round white pill with what looks like a u and some numbers and scored on other side so it can be broken into 4 pieces ## Hi Sister, Based on my research, a round white pill marked with "U" & "169" on one side and cross-scored on the other, is identified as a 4mg Tizanidine tablet, manufactured by Unichem Pharma. This medication is reported to be a skeletal muscle relaxant marketed for its use in treating muscle spasms, but does have a few other off-label uses as well. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Tizanidine Details I hope this helps!

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...

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?
