Sorry, no Zanaflex advise because I was allergic to it. I have several friends who take it though, and the husband does some wacky things on it. Please be very careful with this med. It can be a doozy!! Please don't get me wrong, they both still take it, but he tends to overuse it and has been hospitalized with some truly bizarre repetitive moaning for days and days and yet she can take it just fine. We (and the Dr's) think he must have OD'd on too many meds of too many kinds but the Zanaflex is his "drug of choice" and he thinks it helps his CP more than anything else.
(I know this sounds bad....but it was done in love.... My friend now substitutes all but one Zanaflex for him a day with vitamin pills that look exactly like them. He has no idea that he is taking less of the Zanaflex, but he has not had the problem with the repetitive moaning .... like a stuck record player.. since she started laying out his meds like this. She does not want him to suffer, but she was told he would likely pass away every time he has been hospitalized like this. It goes on for days and days and then he just wakes up and becomes himself again. It's HORRIBLE....so please NEVER take too many of this one.)
