Tizanidine doesn't assist with RLS and depending on the severity of your RLS it can actually aggravateit. Tizanidine does not affect the part of the brain necessary to feel relief. Parkinson drugs like Mirapex are outstanding with RLS. I suffer from it myself and take both medications. I can not sleep without the mirapex-at all. Definitely seek medical advice. I have had RLS since before it even had a name. Dr's didn't know anything about it so they have come a long way. Start on a low dose and gradually go up over years time. Good Luck!!
