Is zanaflex addicting?

Answers (1)

7 Feb 2012

Any drug can be psychologically addictive. Zanaflex (Tizanidine) is not a controlled substance. In high doses it can cause some withdrawal effects if stopped abruptly like increased blood pressure, fast heartbeat, tremors, rebound muscle spasms and anxiety. Most any drug has a potential to be abused but Zanaflex is not usually considered to be addictive and like I said, it is not subject to the controlled substances act. It is actually closely related to the drug clonidine which is an antihypertensive drug (for blood pressure).
