Zanaflex does the opposite for me

  1. I asked my dr. for a muscle relaxer to help my neck/shoulder pain so I could sleep at night. She ordered zanaflex 2mg. it said take one or two. I took one, nothing, so I took 2 and was awake all night. It did just the opposite for me, keeping me wide awake. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

    I had the exact same problem with another muscle relaxant, baclofen. Called my doctor and they could not believe that I had such an opposite reaction. They then gave me zanaflex, which works for me.
