Getting Tizanidine Out Of My System

beezer Says:

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 my forehead now. I think I must have gotten up too fast and passed out fro a drop in blood pressure.

Hello, Flash! I am so very sorry about what happened to you!

Yes, it was likely due to the interaction of taking them both, the Tizanidine can amplify the effects of the Bystolic, so it likely caused your blood pressure to go too low, as reported by the FDA.

It's generally considered a minor interaction, but for some people, if your blood pressure is already normal or slightly low, it could cause a problem.

Additionally, it's normal for your blood pressure to be lower, at night, which could just aggravate the whole issue, then suddenly standing… Wow!

I'm glad you're okay, though.

Have you found something else to take?

Yes, I still take the Systolic and now take Flexeril- Cyclobenzaprine. I have had no further problems with dropping blood pressure at night.
