    on if I can take these together.

    I take zanaflex 2x a day, it's the only way I get a bit of relief from the muscle tightness and spasms.

    My rhuemy just gave me Mirapex, but I am afraid to take it.

    I have a low tolerance to most med's, so it is scary to start a new one.

    Rhuemy said just don't take zanaflex, but how will I function? I'm already homebound as it is.

    The pharmacist had no idea if they work together or not. I looked up drug interaction sites, and got no info there either.

    I know both zanaflex and Mirapex can lower b.p. which mine is already low.

    Does anyone have a similar experience, as to what you did?

    I'm thinking of taking them a few hour's apart and see what happen's.

    I can't type anymore for awhile but will read all post's, if not respond.

    Thanks in advance,
    Claudia

    I don't take either, but check out the website drugs dot com. They have a really good interaction checker there.

    Good luck on the Mirapex, let us know if it helps!

    fisrt Sueliza, thanks I'll try that site.:)

    Shatteredcrystal-Love the name by the way. May I ask if you are taking them at the same time, and what dose you take?

    Thanks,
