My whole left side of my mouth paining very bad causing bottom back tooth on left side to pain. ## Hello, Tissua! How are you? No, this will not help with a toothache. Tizanidine is a muscle relaxant that used to treat the pain associated with strains, sprains and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. You should see your dentist for an appropriate medication and treatment.

Tizanidine Medication
6 Replies RSS
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.

Tizanidine Abnormal Dreams Hallicinations
3 Replies RSS
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 ...

I was prescribed Tizanidine 4 mg and took 30 within a 4 week span. How long would this amount take to get out of my body? Any info appreciated! ## Hello, Beezer! How are you? The FDA classifies Tizanidine as a muscle relaxant, so there is no reason to worry about being on it. It is not addictive or habit forming. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Did you have a bad reaction to it? ## I had an awful reaction to this drug. Combined with my blood pressure medicine (Bystolic) I took one of the Tizandine in the evening - have fibromyalgia and restless leg syndrome. May husband found me passed out in the bathroom with blood flowing from my head. Evidently I passed out when I went into the bathroom during the night. I have a huge scar on m...

APO TI 4 and U 169
2 Replies RSS
What is the difference between these 2 pills? I never had a problem with the smaller APO TI 4. But the other (U 169) i get extremely itchy and feel like it will never stop. My pharmacy only carries the U 169 now. HELP. ## Hello, PJ! How are you? They are both listed as containing 4mgs of Tizanidine, which is a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. However, the inactive ingredients may be different and there might be one in the U 169 tablet that's manufactured by Unichem that you are allergic to. Have you discussed the problem with your doctor? ## Hi Verwon. Thanks for your reply. I'm going to the pharmacy on Monday. Waiting for Dr's appt. Can't wait to find out what the deal is.
