Tizanidine 4mg drowsiness and dizziness
3 Replies RSS Share
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...

Round, white, E44 on the front, cross on the back ## A child in my school is said to be using this medication for a mood disorder. Could this be correct? or did the mother give me the wrong medication? ## Sandoz Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as containing 4mgs of Tizanidine, which is a muscle relaxant. So, while it may be calming, it i not usually used to treat mood disorders. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Amy, can you please double check the imprint and post back? Thank you!

I have a small round white pills with u158 on one side and when I searched for the type of pills they're it comes back saying no results and this can't be true and I'm looking at the imprint clearly, can you please tell me what it's used for. 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 thought I should note that I also located a very similar looking pill ...

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.

i found a large round white pill with m 324 what is this
2 Replies RSS Share
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! ##...
