Tizanidine belongs to the class of medications referred to as skeletal muscle relaxants and is primarily used to alleviate the spasms and increased muscle tone resulting from multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, or brain or spinal injury. Tizanidine works by decreasing brain and nervous system activity to facilitate muscle relaxation.

Uses and Dosage

Tizanidine is available in tablet and capsule form for oral administration. It is typically taken two or three times per day with or without food. Follow the prescription label instructions precisely. Do not alter the dosage or frequency of administration unless specifically instructed by your doctor.

It may be possible to open tizanidine capsules and sprinkle the contents on soft foods, such as applesauce. Discuss this approach with your physician since the effects of the medication may differ from those observed when swallowing the capsule whole.

Tizanidine capsules and tablets differ in their absorption rates, so one form cannot substitute for the other. Each time you refill your prescription, double-check the medication in the bottle to ensure that you have received the correct product. If you have any concerns regarding your medication, speak with your doctor or pharmacist without delay.

Your physician will most likely initiate you on a low dosage of tizanidine and gradually increase it based on your response.

Do not discontinue taking tizanidine without first consulting your physician. Abruptly stopping tizanidine may result in faster heart rate, increased blood pressure, or muscle tightness. Your doctor will likely decrease your dosage progressively.
