tizanidine a narcotic

Is tizanidine considered a narcotic? Thanks ## Hello, Donald! How are you? No, Tizanidine is a muscle relaxant. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for your response to my query as to whether tizanidine is a narcotic. You are very helpful and appreciated. ## Will Tizanidine give me a dirty U/A for benzos?

Tizanidine is considered a narcotic

People that take Tizanidine will test positive for opiates. It's considered a narcotic, because there's 1 ingredient that they use in this and its used in opiates like perks. The reason I know? - I just got prescribed it and it is a muscle relaxer, but my doctor told me it is considered a narcotic and he gave me a urine stick to take home, so he knows I'm taking it. Just so you people know, it will show up positive. Editor's note: We do not verify the credentials of our users and nothing stated in our forums is intended to be taken as medical advice. ## You are wrong. It absolutely is not a controlled substance therefore not a narcotic. There is no opiates in zanaflex. Please know what you are talking about before you respond. ## Actually Tizanidine will NOT test positiv...

white pill p180

white oval scored 4 ways on one side and p180 on the other ## I believe the imprint you were looking at was actually R 180, it matches this description. It is manufactured by Par Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 4mgs of Tizanidine, which is a muscle relaxant that is used to treat pain associated with strains, sprains, and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache. Do you think the letter could be an R?

expiration of tizanidine

Found a bottle of tizanidine filled in 2015. Will it be safe to take? If so, will it still work? Also can you take seroquel with tizanidine? ## This medication does not become dangerous once expired, but it may start to lose efficacy, according to FDA reports. They can be taken together, if they have both been prescribed for you, but you may experience more severe side effects than usual, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, and confusion. When was it filled in 2015? Usually, the expiration date is a year from the date it was dispensed to you by your pharmacy. ## It was filled 4/2014 and it says expires on 4/2015. Sorry looked at the expiration instead date filled, so I guess that tells me its too old, right? Thanks for taking time to reply. So are they really bad? ## I have a bootle ...

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.

Tizanidine 4mg drowsiness and dizziness

I have been on tizanidine, for about two weeks give or take. I was wandering if anyone could tell me if the morning dose drowsiness and dizziness will lessen as I take it, sleeping a for two hours or so during the day isn't very productive. ## Tizanidine is a muscle relaxant it can cause such side effects, but yes, they should taper off after awhile, as your body adjusts to the medication, but that may take about a month. Learn more Tizanidine details here. Are you taking it regularly, rather than on an as needed basis? That's how these medications are usually prescribed. ## I've been taking it for about 3 months and it still makes me drowsy. I can't take my morning dose unless I have time to lay down and take a nap. My body gets used to most prescriptions fairly quickly...

Thank you ## @Curiosity, I just had a few questions about your pill in order to help narrow down some prospects: *Could the letter "u" on your pill possibly be depicted as a logo of some sort? *How are numbers arranged on the pill relative to the "u"? (e.g. is the "u" sitting above a score line on one side with the "158" underneath it or are they pictured exactly as you described "u158"?) *Whereabouts did you get it from?

i found a large round white pill with m 324 what is this

I found a large white pill with M 324. What is this? My son found this, and gave it to me. I am very concerned. ## Hi Sussn, How would describe the imprint in so far as the way it's arranged on the pill? For example: Is the "M" sitting over top of the "324" or is the the "M" on one side and "324" on the other; etc? Based on your description, the closest match I'm finding is a round white pill (approx. 10.00 mm in size) with an "M" over top of "724" on one side and is cross-scored (+) on the back. This particular pill reportedly contains 4mgs of Tizanidine hydrochloride, which is used as a muscle relaxant. For verification, the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 00378-0724 and is manufactured by Mylan. I hope this helps! ##...

Tizanidine feels toxic, like I need to clean it out!

Basically have been trying to manage shoulder or possibly neck tensing issue for about 4-5 months now. I also try to remain active. Go to the gym regularly. One day woke up with my right side stiff, and very little feeling in it. Called doc. Who suggested this stuff. Tried it twice. And still feel...off. Foggy, light headed, random drops (then spikes) in blood pressure pulse etc. Not at my self which is normally pretty lighthearted and goofy. I called the doctor for a follow up. Doc didn't believe me saying those problems are rare. I have not taken another pill so as to avoid making matters worse. Any one else run into this? Any advice or opinions for what to do next? Any suggestions or ideas on detoxing from this stuff? ## As a follow up. I was lucky. I got into see a acupuncture s...

Tizanidine-HCL

## I was prescribed tizanidine for muscle pain will this medication trigger my anxiety ## I wouldn't think it would. Everyone is different but this is a muscle relaxer and therefore has some sedating properties associated with it. If anything I would think it may calm you down some. I've taken it for years and never had an issue with it causing anxiety ## How are you doing on it, Susie? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications?
