My mother suffers from MS and has taken this medication, but it did not help her much.
But bare in mind that not all organisms react in the same way to medications regarding benefits and side effects.
Zanaflex (tizanidine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication used to treat spasticity, a condition involving muscle spasms, cramps, and tightness that is often caused by multiple sclerosis (MS) or spinal cord injuries. This medication is short-acting (each dose only lasts for a few hours) and should be reserved for daily activities when spasticity control is most important.
