Tizanidine - does this pill work like a valium?


Rajive Goel 27 Dec 2011

Tizanidine hydrochloride (Zanaflex) 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 or diseases. It is short-acting (each dose only lasts for a few hours) and should be reserved for daily activities when spasticity control is most important.

Valium (diazepam) is a prescription medication that is used to treat the following conditions: Anxiety; Alcohol withdrawal; Muscle spasms; Seizures (when used along with other seizure medications).

Both meds cannot be compared to one another as both have different functions, however, please do seek more medical advice from a doc/pharmacist.

Take care, best wishes!
