Tizanidine Overview

Tizanidine (trade names Zanaflex, Sirdalud) is a drug that is used as a muscle relaxant. It is a centrally acting α2 adrenergic agonist.

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 tha

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?

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...
