I have RA, Fibro and Scoliosis. I have taken them all up until Friday when this drug was prescribed. I am only 29 and I cannot remember not hurting. Well, Took one dose, slept and woke up pain free for the first time in 16 years! I was able to wake up with no brain fog as well.

My doctor prescribed Zanaflex 4mg for a strained muscle in my back. Within 15-30 minutes I feel drunk, slurred speech, vision blurred, then I finally pass out.

I sleep solid for about 4-6 hours, and I wake up fee ... Show Full Comment

Real bad reactions. Hospitalized twice in 2007 because of it. Spent 2 months in bed. Have never gotten back to feeling like I did before using it. Liver enzymes went through roof. Protine went way down. Doctor thought I would die. They even sent tests to California. Side effects sneak up on you and doctors can't figure out what is causing the problems.

Comment:
Works wonders for the spasms. Which is why I took it for 8 yrs. But it is highly addictive and nearly killed me when I stopped taking them. I suffered a small stroke from my BP going so high, non stop vomiting and diareah for 10 days. Lost 40 pounds in 2 weeks. Didn't sleep for a week straight. Hallucinations, dizzy and couldn't walk at all. I slept on the floor in the bathroom for ... Show Full Comment
