I've been taking 8 1/2 mgs of zanaflex every night for 10 years. I ran out of my prescription two days ago. I'm not sure what I'm feeling other than terrible cramps and lack of sleep for 3 days straight. Help
YES, you are having mild withdrawal symptoms. Get your prescription refilled asap and call your doctor. Taking any prescription drug for that long will cause your body to be dependent on it.
I don't know what other drugs you are taking, so coming off of it so quickly, one has to consider what else you are taking.
Again, call your doctor, get your rx refilled asap, and if the symptoms get worse, GO TO the ER ASAP.
ALL THE BEST,
