It's amazing how certain meds affect certain people so differently... I also take Zanaflex....the 6 mg. at 1 1/2 at a time...and they don't do anything to me...they don't really even help me with the muscle spasms...
I concur with the others that say you should call the Dr. to get the 4 mg. tabs called in...I wouldn't want you falling asleep while your daughter is playing the flute....
I have been a spectator for so long..Now it's time to participate.......

Metformin HCL ER 1000 mg. at night..Glipizide 10mg. 2X in the morning
Lantus 35 units at bedtime with Solostar Pen
I have been on 4 mg Zanaflex for over a year. They prescribed it to take throughout the day which is impossible as it makes me totally loopy. I take 2 at bedtime and within 20 minutes I'm a goner.
Just went for my re check and they insist I need to be on it during the day and I told them no way!!
So I'm now being switched to Skelexin which he says does not cause the fatigue, we'll see!!

You usually have great advice for me so maybe just maybe i can help YOU>
I take Flexeril 10 mg tab 3 x daily for my fm and spine issues. Maybe you could try that med.
I believe it can be in a lwr dose as well.
There is a new Extended release muscle relaxer called Amrix out there now. You may ask for a sample or a small amount scrip to try.
I hear in the Fibro Boards alot of people take Malic Acid/Magnesium for muscle pain may want to try that yourself. I take Vit D 2000 iu everyday myself.
I hope you can find a good med and dosage that is helpful to you.
I also agree with White Beard to at least go back to Pharm and see if this is what it says it is on pill bottle. Also maybe the pharmacist will give you a 3 day amount of old dose.
