How long does zanaflex stay in your system?
i need to know how long zanaflex will stay in system thanks Asked by Clarinda Meraz 1 year ago.

Zanaflex will stay in your body at a maximum of 24 hours. I would say that after 3 days of not taking Zanaflex, if your blood was drawn, no trace of Zanaflex would be found. If you look at the package insert [information that the FDA approves and has to be with every medication], on the first page, second column there is a graph. It shows that after 1 dose, at 24 hours, there should be little or no Zanaflex in the bloodstream. Zanaflex also has a pretty short half life (~2 hours) so the graph matches.

What does zanaflex do?
if i take 2 and if i take 3 or 4 Asked by Hayden Holscher 1 year ago.

Tizanidine (Zanaflex) is a centrally acting a2-adrenergic agonist. It is used to treat the spasms, cramping, and tightness of muscles caused by medical problems such as multiple sclerosis, back pain, or certain injuries to the spine. It can come in a white pill with the markings cor 138 and 2 scores on the back that create an X. It is supplied as 2 and 4 mg tablets for oral administration. Zanaflex tablets are composed of the active ingredient, tizanidine hydrochloride (2.288 mg equivalent to 2 mg tizanidine base and 4.576 mg equivalent to 4 mg tizanidine base), and the inactive ingredients, silicon dioxide colloidal, stearic acid, microcrystalline cellulose and anhydrous lactose.

Does anyone have any information on Zanaflex?
Has it worked for you? Will it make me tired? Common side effects? (I am taking it for Fibromyalgia) Thanks! Asked by Adolph Flachs 1 year ago.

I've taken Zanaflex (Tizanidine) three times a day for about a year now. There was another one that worked a bit better for me, but I've gone blank on its name (thanks, fibro fog!) and pain management specialist refused to give me a prescription for it (the rheumatologist had me on it before) because of an addition risk. (I find that hilarious - the pain management specialist has me on two different forms of morphine!) Anyway, Zanaflex is a muscle relaxant, as you probably know. If you have problems with muscle spasms and tightness, it may help you. If you don't, it won't do much good for you. It isn't a pain reliever in and of itself. It can cause drowsiness, according to the prescribing information, but after the first few days it hasn't done so for me. I was having really bad muscle spasms, so a muscle relaxant was vital. Good luck! Answered by Isela Ruckey 1 year ago.

When I take Zanaflex at night, my imagination is more vivid, and I draw with more detail and creativity?
I draw weird illusional things, why is that? At times, not always, but I dream weird too. Asked by Dessie Renouf 1 year ago.

Did you just start taking zanaflex? I have been taking zanaflex for about 3 months now. I started with 4mg at bed time only. When I first started taking it I would have weird/horrible dreams that would continue with some sleepwalking. For example, I dreamed my friend called me saying she was hurt and in my garage. I jumped out of bed (in real life) and ran down the stairs to help her. I got to the bottom of the steps and was like wait....... this is impossible and realized it was a dream. It is not a good thing for me to be jumping out of bed and running down the stairs. Another awake dream I had was my whole ceiling was covered with sparkling skulls and crossbones. I had things like this happen a couple times. For the next week or so I had a lot of vivid dreams, mostly bad and was considering stopping the med. It actually helped a lot so I just kept taking it. After a couple weeks it was happening less often. Fast forward to now, (3 mo later) I take 2mg of zanaflex in morning, 2 at lunch, 2 at dinner, and 4-6mg at night. I only get those dreams once a week or less and i consider it a miracle drug. It has helped immensely. Answered by Ewa Kincheloe 1 year ago.


Dangers of zanaflex, i dont want to get hurt help!?
my girlfriend is prescribed zanaflex muscle relaxer. she says it knocks her out and she can sleep when she takes them. so i want to take it to help me sleep because i ran out of my sleeping pills last night. will they help me sleep? are they dangerous? im just taking one 4mg pill. Asked by Benita Vohs 1 year ago.

zanaflex is a mixture of xanax and fexeral. As long as your not allergic to either of them you should be ok. I would take a 1/2 of pill and see what that does. if it don't knock you out try a whole one. They can be dangerous if you take to much but if you try what I said and are not allergic to any of the ingredientce in the pill you will be ok:) Answered by Michell Bongiovanni 1 year ago.

Is mixing celexa and zanaflex dangerous?
I'm on 20 mg of Celexa, and I have a prescription for Zanaflex that I was given a while ago to take as needed before I was put on Celexa. I read that they were dangerous to combine, but I was wondering if I didn't take it every day, like just every once in a while when it got really bad if it would still be...

When I take Zanaflex at night, my imagination is more vivid, and I draw with more detail and creativity?
I draw weird illusional things, why is that? At times, not always, but I dream weird too. Asked by Stacey Keasey 1 year ago.

Did you just start taking zanaflex? I have been taking zanaflex for about 3 months now. I started with 4mg at bed time only. When I first started taking it I would have weird/horrible dreams that would continue with some sleepwalking. For example, I dreamed my friend called me saying she was hurt and in my garage. I jumped out of bed (in real life) and ran down the stairs to help her. I got to the bottom of the steps and was like wait....... this is impossible and realized it was a dream. It is not a good thing for me to be jumping out of bed and running down the stairs. Another awake dream I had was my whole ceiling was covered with sparkling skulls and crossbones. I had things like this happen a couple times. For the next week or so I had a lot of vivid dreams, mostly bad and was considering stopping the med. It actually helped a lot so I just kept taking it. After a couple weeks it was happening less often. Fast forward to now, (3 mo later) I take 2mg of zanaflex in morning, 2 at lunch, 2 at dinner, and 4-6mg at night. I only get those dreams once a week or less and i consider it a miracle drug. It has helped immensely. Answered by Nella Hoseck 1 year ago.


Dangers of zanaflex, i dont want to get hurt help!?
my girlfriend is prescribed zanaflex muscle relaxer. she says it knocks her out and she can sleep when she takes them. so i want to take it to help me sleep because i ran out of my sleeping pills last night. will they help me sleep? are they dangerous? im just taking one 4mg pill. Asked by Danuta Gulliver 1 year ago.

zanaflex is a mixture of xanax and fexeral. As long as your not allergic to either of them you should be ok. I would take a 1/2 of pill and see what that does. if it don't knock you out try a whole one. They can be dangerous if you take to much but if you try what I said and are not allergic to any of the ingredientce in the pill you will be ok:) Answered by Ina Hybarger 1 year ago.
