All patients receiving chlorzoxazone should be instructed to immediately report any signs and symptoms of hepatic injury such as fever, rash, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, right upper quadrant pain, dark urine and jaundice, and to discontinue the drug promptly should they occur. Chlorzoxazone therapy should also be withdrawn if abnormal liver enzymes (e.g., AST, ALT, alkaline phosphatase, bilirubin) develop.
