about a week ago I took tizanidine and woke up from a nightmare in a full blown panic attack and have not been ok since. 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. If you have this drug, I suggest you throw them out quickly. It is a horrible drug. ## I have been taking tizanidine for over ten yrs and couldn't manage without it! My muscle spasms are so bad that I would be curled up in a ball on the floor without it. I'm sorry that your body has reacted negatively to it but not ...

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

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).

Tizanidine Medication

I have had hallucinations and terrible, very realistic nightmares. I finally figured out that it was only after I took my tizanidine. I thought I was going crazy. I am not going to take it anymore and hope that I return to normal. My husband also complained about me acting and speaking unusually. ## Glad to hear you stopped taking it. Tizanidine does seem like a pretty dangerous medication when it comes down to possible side effects. MedlinePlus lists "changes in vision" as well as "seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist" to be common but serious side effects of Tizanidine. Learn More: Tizanidine Details Have you already started looking into other alternative treatment options? ## I have had hallucinations when taking this as well! They usually occur in the da...

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?

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...
