    Hi Everyone,
    My pain management doctor started me on Tizanidine 4 mg twice a day. Question is does anyone know the side effects to this and is this drug a narcotic? Does not seem to have any effect on me at all and no effect for the pain. Thanks for all the responses.

    is Zanaflex. It is a medication used for muscle spasms. It is not a narcotic.

    Tizanidine is a short-acting muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.

    Tizanidine is used to treat spasticity by temporarily relaxing muscle tone.

    It's not for pain, but sometimes doctors prescribe it so your muscles will relax enough to help you sleep. Might that be your case?

    Wish you "success in your fight"...
