I have a son with background of drug abuse. These drugs showed up when I picked up my prescripton drugs at pharmacy.
Fisrt of all i hope you don´t have MS... my mother has it... no words.
Tizanidine Hydrochloride interacts with many other drugs one of them is alcohol.
Alcohol can increase the absorption of tizanidine, possibly increasing the levels of the medication in the blood. Combining alcohol with tizanidine can cause additive effects, such as increased drowsiness, confusion, memory loss, or difficulty breathing. It is best to avoid alcohol while taking this medicine.
I am not saying your son is doing both, but if he has a past history with drug abuse, I would be concerned.
I am 41 , bipolar among many other issues..one of them drugs and alcohol for 20 years been clean and sober for 8.
I recommend a hair folecule test because it shows what he has been taking for the past six months, you see the more conventional screenings (blood & urine) are more limited (and there are ways to pass them... I did more than once) some look just for 6 drugs some for 10, , know the hair test is expensive but very accuarate... if you decide to go ahead with it pin point ( to the person that will take the hair sample) for Tizanidine Hydrochloride , the other substances will show up no matter what.
Before i "graduated" from my program I had a hair folecule test, I obviously passed it.
It´s the best one... from my experience.
