about a week ago I took tizanidine and woke up from a nightmare in a full blown panic attack and have not been ok since.

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 out of system

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... ...

round whit pill, with e 44 on on side and a criss cross on the other. This is a SKELETAL MUSCLE RELAXANT ## This medication is also known as Zanaflex ## What other drug is in my tizanidine? ## Nothing. That is the active ingredient. If you want information on the inactive ingredients, then that depends on what company manufactures the pills you are taking. While inactive ingredients are considered by the FDA to be 'medically inactive', they do sometimes have an effect on some people, so finding a generic manufactured by a different company can help. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness and dry mouth. ## I need to know what drug it is tainted wth that effects the heart very bad.

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 8MG taper schedule?

What is a good taper schedule after taking Tizanidine 8 MG every night for 6 years? ## Hi Missy, Due to the length of time you've been taking this drug, it's hard to say what method might work best for you. I can only offer my opinion, but think it could just come down to making a decision based on trial and error, if you reduce the dosage by a little too much or not enough (every few weeks). If it were me in your shoes, I would try cutting the pills into halves or fractions if necessary. Then consistently take that divided dose for a period of several weeks and taper down that way. Your body should tell you instinctively if the divided dose is suitable or if you need to wait longer before tapering down again. Just remember that even if it takes you months to a year or longer to... ...

e 44 round white pill tizanidine

I suspect my husband is insufflating pills. I found a bunch of small pills with E44 on one side and lines on the other side.

I can't say as to whether or not he's tried getting high from them, but these tablets won't do that. It is just a muscle relaxant and its common side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Have you talked to him about it? ...

Soma, Cyclobenzaprine or Tizanidine

Is Soma a good muscle relaxer? Right now I'm taking Tizanidine which is not working very good. I use to take Soma but they were cutting that out so I just asked for something else. Is DAN 5658 any better? ## No Dan 5658 is not SOMA. They do however make a decent SOMA ## Cyclobenzaprine is a bit stronger than Tizanidine, but it really depends on how well it works for you. Soma is the strongest available, it contains Carisoprodol, but due to how often it is abused, many doctors will no longer prescribe it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of muscle relaxants as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Have you tried taking it, yet? ...

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 WAS TAKING SOMA 3 AT BEDTIME INSURANCE DOES NOT WANT TO PAY FOR SOMA NO MORE THEY GAVEME TIZANIDINE 4MG HOW MUCH TIZADINE I SHOULD TAKE AT BEDTIME ## Hi I saw your thead and if your ins does want to oay for your soma, be aware that soma is an inexpensive medication.

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.

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 ... ...

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... ...
