Zanaflex is a very short acting drug. It only has peak action for a couple of hours. I would say that once you stop the meds you should feel back to normal in a day or two tops. Zanaflex knocks me out cold. If I take one during the day, within 30min I am so tired I can fall asleep sitting up in the middle of a conversation but if I tough it out and try to stay awake those effects start wearing off in about an hour and a half to two hours.
