My dr has put me on zanaflex. I know its a muscle relaxer. It seems to not help. Has anyone got any relief from it or side effects?
as you know everyone reacts differently, this includes meds not doing anything at all. you may want to try another muscle relaxer if your showing no noticable improvement, and after that a benzodiazepine or anti-epileptic(dont remember if your already on a benzo or not, sorry) would be my recomendation but i would try a muscle relaxer first. Im very sure people have gotten relief as well as side effects but if your getting neither (since this is a med that has the peak plasma level at about 1 hour after taking it) it may just be the chemical in the med.
Sorry sweetie, I have not taken this or if I have it has been a long time ago and it must not have worked for me either. Maybe you should talk to your doc about it and he/she could suggest another type. I tried Methocarbamol I think that is how it is spelled. It is a muscle relaxer that worked fine for me. And it wasn't anything like Soma (the demon drug) for me. And, I think that is the generic name for Robaxin. You can check on the drugs a to z tab at the top of this page for more information. It can be habit forming. best of luck kimmie1
