Zanaflex (Tizanidine) 4mg Taken as needed, usually before bed.
This is a muscle relaxer. It is a heavy duty med at first but as tolerance builds up it loses it strength.
Why I took it:
I get muscle spasms day and night. I started this medication due to losing lots of sleep due to spasms waking me up and keeping me up.
Why I no longer take it:
Went over a month without taking it thanks to cannabis. Ended up putting it away. May turn back to it if I find the need.
When I started taking it:
This med gets started with a titration schedule of taking one a night before going to bed for two weeks, then increasing as needed.
For the first week I took Zanaflex it would knock me out, and I slept better than I have in a long time. After the first week I grew a tolerance and the medication lost its effectiveness.
If I ever take it, it would be before going to bed.
