my son has scoliosis and was prescribed this drug. I however was prescribed valium for anxiety. Just wondering if he is experiencing similar effects when I give him his medication as I and if it is safe for him
The are both muscle relaxers but they aren't related chemically.
I have been taking tizanidine for a few years now for my back and it is a little sedating so I usually take it at night. I have taken valium off and on over the years as well, and although it has a muscle relaxing affect, the valium also works on anxiety and is extremely addictive. Some people who are more sensitive to medications may feel more relaxed by the tizanidine than others but it is not an anxiety medication.
