Why is Zanaflex prescribed?
Tizanidine (Zanaflex) is prescribed alone or in combination with other medications for the treatment of spasticity of muscles, sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
What does it do?
Tizanidine, classified as an alpha adrenergic agonist, is a muscle relaxant medication which primarily works by increasing the blockage of motor neuron in the presynaptic nerves; thus, blocking impulses in the nerve and relaxes the muscle.
How should I take it?
Zanaflex and its generic equivalents are available as 2mg and 4mg tablets. It is intended for oral administration as a whole, not to be crushed or chewed, and should be taken with or without food as directed by the doctor.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is strictly advised that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
Taking the dose properly at the scheduled time is needed to attain the desired effect of the drug. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and catch the next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Zanaflex?
Before taking Tizanidine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had liver disease, heart problems, dysrhythmia, kidney disease, high blood pressure, rebound hypertension, hypotension, and hypertonia.
Avoid drinking alcohol as this may cause dizziness or drowsiness which can add to the effects of Tizanidine.
