Also known as:  Tizanidine.


Generic Zanaflex is an agonist at (alpha) 2-adrenergic receptor sites and presumably reduces spasticity by increasing presynaptic inhibition of motor neurons. In animal models, Generic Zanaflex has no direct effect on skeletal muscle fibers or the neuromuscular junction, and no major effect on monosynaptic spinal reflexes. The effects of Generic Zanaflex are greatest on polysynaptic pathways. The overall effect of these actions is thought to reduce facilitation of spinal motor neurons.

The imidazoline chemical structure of Generic Zanaflex is related to that of the anti-hypertensive drug clonidine and other (alpha) 2 -adrenergic agonists. Pharmacological studies in animals show similarities between the two compounds, but Generic Zanaflex was found to have one-tenth to one-fiftieth (1/50) of the potency of clonidine in lowering blood pressure.

Zanaflex is also known as Tizanidine, Sirdalud.

Generic name of Generic Zanaflex is Tizanidine-Oral.

Brand name of Generic Zanaflex is Zanaflex.


You should take it by mouth.

It usually is taken two or three times a day.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Generic Zanaflex suddenly.


If you overdose Generic Zanaflex and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.


Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

In a double-blind trial tizanidine (DS 103-282: 5-Chloro-4-(2-imidazolin-2-yl-amino)-2,1,3-benzothiadiazole), a new muscle relaxant, was compared with diazepam in twenty in-patients suffering from acute paravertebral muscle spasm. All the patients had suffered from degenerative spinal disease for some years. Ten patients received tizanidine and the other ten received diazepam. Both drugs were administered t.i.d. for a period of 7 days. Significant improvements were reported in eight of the sixteen variables. Tizanidine was significantly superior to diazepam for two of these variables (lateral flexion of the lumbar spine, right and left). A centrally mediated blood-pressure-lowering effect was observed with both drugs. Tizanidine was generally better tolerated, only two patients reporting transient side-effects compared with five patients in the diazepam group. Like diazepam, tizanidine is a suitable drug for the treatment of acute paravertebral muscle spasm.

For localized/segmental spasticity that warrants treatment, botulinum toxin type A should be offered as an effective and generally safe treatment (Level A). There are insufficient data to support or refute the use of phenol, alcohol, or botulinum toxin type B (Level U). For generalized spasticity that warrants treatment, diazepam should be considered for short-term treatment, with caution regarding toxicity (Level B), and tizanidine may be considered (Level C). There are insufficient data to support or refute use of dantrolene, oral baclofen, or continuous intrathecal baclofen (Level U).

This Phase I, single-dose, randomized, open-label, 4-way crossover study was conducted at MDS Pharma Services, Belfast, United Kingdom. Healthy male and female adult subjects received tizanidine (8 mg) as tablets and capsules under fasting and nonfasting conditions. Blood samples were collected to determine plasma tizanidine pharmacokinetic profiles, and computerized cognitive function tests were performed that yielded a validated composite score, Power of Attention, an index of sedation.

A 60-year-old female with multiple sclerosis (MS) and supranuclear palsy (PSP) was scheduled for right eye iridotomy, left eye phaco emulcification aspiration and insertion of the intraocular lens. Her medical conditions included prolonged immobility, spastic contracture, and a history of convulsion. She was administered with L-dopa, tizanidine, bacrofen, and dantrorane. Anesthesia was induced with propofol 50 mg and fentanyl 25 microg intravenously, and inhalation of oxygen and 1% sevoflurane. Tracheal intubation was performed without neuromuscular blocking agents. Anesthesia was maintained with inhalation of oxygen-air (Fi(O2) 0.4) and 1-1.5% sevoflurane, combined with regional anesthesia. Supplemental fentanyl was administered as needed. The bispectral index (BIS) was monitored and kept between 40 and 60. The operation proceeded uneventfully. After discontinuation of anesthetic agents, she awoke immediately and the BIS index returned to the pre-induction level. Neither neurological disturbances nor unexpected event were observed postoperatively. In patients with MS, it is important to remember the possibility of drugs moving into the central nervou system easily due to the disturbance of the blood-brai barrier. Patients with PSP are usually medicated wit. various medicines which have possibility of interactin with anesthetics. Therefore, we used least anesthetic as possible. In this case, monitoring of BIS seemed to be useful to maintain the minimum sevoflurane concen trations needed.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating medical condition affecting 1.2 million people in the United States. Central neuropathic pain is one of the most common medical complications of SCI. Current treatment options include opioids, antiepileptic agents such as gabapentin, antispastic agents such as baclofen or tizanidine, and tricyclic acid. Other options include complementary, nonpharmacological treatment such as exercise or acupuncture, interventional treatments, and psychological approaches. Although these treatment options exist, central neuropathic pain in patients with SCI is still extremely difficult to treat because of its complexity. To develop and provide more effective treatment options to these patients, proper assessment of and classification tools for central neuropathic pain, as well as a better understanding of the pathophysiology, are needed. A combination of approaches, from standard general pain assessments to medically specific questions unique to SCI pathophysiology, is essential for this population. A multidisciplinary approach to patient care, in addition with a better understanding of pathophysiology and diagnosis, will lead to improved management and treatment of patients with SCI displaying central neuropathic pain. Here we summarize the most recent classification tools, pathophysiology, and current treatment options for patients with SCI with central neuropathic pain.

We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical question: What are the effects of treatments in people with trigeminal neuralgia? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and other important databases up to September 2007 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review). We included harms alerts from relevant organisations such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The first part of this review deals with arguments that the essential properties and organization of spinal interneuronal systems in the cat and in man are similar. The second part is concerned with the possibility that some interneuronal systems may be responsible for motor disturbances caused by spinal cord injuries and that these interneurones may be defined. This possibility is discussed with respect to the hyperexcitability of alpha-motoneurones and the exaggeration of stretch reflexes in spastic patients. To this end, what is known about cat spinal interneurones and about the neuronal basis and pharmacological treatment of spasticity, is put together. Interneurones in di- and trisynaptic reflex pathways from group II muscle afferents are singled out, since they are depressed by the alpha(2) noradrenaline receptor agonists clonidine and tizanidine, which is a critical feature of interneurones expected to contribute to exaggerated stretch reflexes which are reduced by alpha(2) noradrenaline receptor agonists. Recent observations that reflex excitation of extensor motoneurones from group II afferents is enhanced in spastic patients and that the pathologically strong reflex actions of group II afferents are reduced by clonidine and tizanidine support this proposal. On the other hand, a lack of effect of clonidine and tizanidine upon other types of excitatory or inhibitory interneurones argues against any major contribution of such interneurones to the abnormally strong responses of alpha-motoneurones to muscle stretch.

Stiff person syndrome (SPS) is a rare autoimmune disease. Most patients have high-titer antibodies against glutamate decarboxylase (GADAb), which is without practical value in disease monitoring. Benzodiazepines are the first line drugs, but long-term use is not well characterized. This report demonstrates ineffective benzodiazepine therapy of SPS that prompts tachyphylaxis, loss of responsiveness, and finally benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. Convulsion and anxiety correlate with high level of creatine phosphokinase (CK). Although tonus and spasm attacks were successfully controlled by tizanidine, glutamate release inhibitor, the immune response, and autoimmune diabetes development require the plasmapheresis, mycophenolat mofetil, and rituximab therapy that results in a significant decrease of GADAb, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and CK normalization. Unfortunately, reintroduction of benzodiazepine was a source of rapid and high increase of CK, LDH, GADAb titer (up to 1:15,000), IGT, and SPS relapse. Contrary to previous publications, we observed IGT that correlated with high anti-GAD level, but without high immunogenetic susceptibility to haplotype human leukocyte antigens-DR3, DQw2. This preliminary observation and the last finding of immunomodulatory properties of peripheral benzodiazepine receptor suggest that increased antigenic stimulation during benzodiazepine therapy and glutamatergic hyperactivity could account for convulsions observed in SPS. Benzodiazepine withdrawal prompted alternative muscle relaxant therapy (tizanidine). Muscular and brain abnormalities observed in SPS indicate that noncardiac CK level may be a useful tool in SPS therapy monitoring.

Baclofen is used for treatment of the spasticity of spinal origin that is a common sequela of spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis; spasticity occurs in about 50% of patients affected by these disorders. In open-label studies of oral baclofen, the drug improved spasticity in 70-87% of patients; additionally, improvement in spasms was reported in 75-96% of patients. In double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled trials, baclofen was reported to be effective, producing statistically significant improvements in spasticity. Tizanidine is the antispasticity drug that has been most widely compared with oral baclofen; studies have generally found the two drugs to have equivalent efficacy. However, tizanidine has better tolerability, in particular weakness was reported to be occur less frequently with tizanidine than with baclofen. The main adverse effects of oral baclofen include: sedation or somnolence, excessive weakness, vertigo and psychological disturbances. The incidence of adverse effects is reported to range from 10% to 75%. The majority of adverse effects are not severe; most are dose related, transient and/or reversible. The main risks of oral baclofen administration are related to withdrawal: seizures, psychic symptoms and hyperthermia can occur. These symptoms improve after the reintroduction of baclofen, usually without sequelae. When not related to withdrawal; these symptoms mainly present in patients with brain damage and in the elderly. The limited data on baclofen toxicity in patients with renal disease suggest that administration of the drug in these persons may carry an unnecessarily high risk. Intrathecal baclofen is indicated for use in patients with spasticity of spinal origin unresponsive to treatment with maximum doses of oral baclofen, tizanidine and/or dantrolene. The benefits of continuous intrathecal baclofen infusion have been demonstrated: >80% and >65% of patients have improvement in tone and spasms, respectively. The main risks of intrathecal baclofen infusion are symptoms related to overdose or withdrawal; the latter is more important because of the associated severe effects on clinical status and the possibility of death, but it is responsive to rapid treatment. Overdose primarily arises from drug test doses or human error during refill and programming of the pump, and withdrawal most commonly occurs as a result of a problem with the delivery system. Since the adverse consequences do not exceed the benefits of oral and intrathecal baclofen for patients with spinal spasticity, the benefit/risk assessment is favourable.

When spasticity produces a clinical disability by interfering with posture, motor capacity, nursing or daily living activities, medical treatment is recommended. It is mainly indicated when the muscle overactivity is diffusely distributed and should be implemented early, to prevent permanent musculoskeletal deformities or contractures. A pharmacological approach relies on the use of drugs which modulate neurotransmitters acting at the cortico-spinal level (GABA, glycine, glutamate, noradrenaline, serotonin). The aim of this treatment is to decrease spinal reflex excitability by reducing the release of excitatory neurotransmitters, or by potentiating the activity of inhibitory inputs. Evaluation of the efficacy of these drugs is determined by the therapeutic objectives which may be biomechanical, or functional. Diazepam increases presynaptic inhibition by stimulating GABA(A) receptors in the brainstem and spinal cord. In double-blind studies of patients with spinal cord lesions, antispastic efficacy has been shown, but side-effects are common. Baclofen stimulates GABA(B) receptors inducing a suppression of excitatory neurotransmitter release. Antispastic efficacy is sufficiently documented, but no definite effects on ambulation or activities of daily living have been proved. Tizanidine has an alpha2-agonist activity (at spinal and supraspinal level) and decreases the presynaptic activity of excitatory interneurones. The main clinical effects are a reduction in tonic stretch, polysynaptic reflexes, and co-contraction, with fewer side-effects but no definite functional change. The efficacy of several other antispastic drugs is documented in a few controlled studies, but the majority of information arises from open trials or anecdotal observations.

The results support tizanidine as an effective prophylactic adjunct for chronic daily headache, including migraine, migrainous headache, and tension-type headache. These results also suggest the possible importance of an alpha2-adrenergic mechanism underlying the pathophysiology of this spectrum of headache disorders.

Twelve studies (469 patients) were included (6 on stroke, 3 on spinal cord diseases, and 3 on cerebral palsy). Tizanidine was assessed in four trials (276 patients, 142 exposed), dantrolene in four (103, 93), baclofen in three (70, 55), diazepam in two (127, 76), and gabapentin in one (28, all exposed). Most trials were of small size, of short duration, and their methodologic quality was inadequate. Ten trials were controlled with placebo and only two were direct comparisons between drugs. Efficacy outcome variables were heterogeneous. Only four reports described the magnitude of the antispastic effect. The incidence of adverse drug effects (drowsiness, sedation, and muscle weakness) was high.

Centrally acting alpha-2 adrenergic agonists are one of several pharmacologic agents used in the treatment of spasticity related to disorders of the central nervous system. In addition to their effects on spasticity, certain adverse cardiorespiratory effects have been reported. Adults chronically treated with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors may have a limited ability to respond to hypotension when the sympathetic response is simultaneously blocked. The authors present a 10-year-old boy chronically treated with lisinopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, to control hypertension who developed hypotension following the addition of tizanidine, an alpha-2 agonist, for the treatment of spasticity. The possible interaction of tizanidine and other antihypertensive agents should be kept in mind when prescribing therapy to treat either hypertension or spasticity in such patients.

Early and late facilitation of the quadriceps H reflex elicited in the common peroneal nerve--attributed to non-monosynaptic group I and group II excitation, respectively--was investigated in 14 spastic hemiplegic patients. All received a single dose of tizanidine (150 microg/kg) or placebo in randomised order at 10 day intervals. Repeated measurements were made at baseline (T0), 45-90 min, and 120 min after drug intake. Spasticity was assessed by modified Ashworth score in the quadriceps muscle and by a leg tone score calculated by the sum of the modified Ashworth score in five muscle groups.

Twelve spastic patients received single oral doses of a new anti-spastic drug DS103-282 (Sandoz) 6 mg, baclofen 20 mg, and placebo on three separate days. Passive stretch responses were measured before administration and for four hours afterwards. DS103-282 was more effective than baclofen, and both drugs were more effective than placebo. Analysis of the recordings confirmed that DS103-282 had a specific effect upon stretch reflexes independent of its effect on resting muscle tone. Its action appeared at 30 to 45 minutes after ingestion, with maximum activity at 60-90 minutes. Unwanted effects of DS103-282 were drowsiness and (in one case) potentiation of antihypertensive therapy.

Spasticity is one of the most common motor and tonus disorders during the initial phase with traumatic brain injured patients. The evaluation of spasticity is mainly clinical but it is very important to prevent complications such as limitation of range of motion, pain, decubitus ulcers. The therapeutic options consist in classical indications such as baclofen, dantrolene, tizanidine, benzodiazepine, associated with physiotherapy. Other additive therapeutic options could be discussed: use of toxin botulinum in focal spasticity and intrathecal baclofen infusion in case of severe spasticity (often associated with dysautonomic disorders.).

In a parallel-group study, 15 healthy women using OCs and 15 healthy women without OCs (control subjects) ingested a single dose of 4 mg tizanidine. Plasma and urine concentrations of tizanidine, as well as several of its metabolites (M-3, M-4, M-5, M-9, and M-10), and pharmacodynamic variables were measured until 24 hours after dosing. As a marker of CYP1A2 activity, an oral caffeine test was performed in both groups.

Children have generalized dystonia more often than adults. The most frequent secondary dystonia are due to cerebral palsy, and often it is associated with other movement disorders like spasticity. The study of dystonia must consider the diverse heredo-degenerative causes because the genetic counseling, natural evolution and treatment may be specific. Among the primary dystonias, torsion dystonia DYT1 and dopa responsive dystonias (DRD) are the more frequent. DRD can be produced by mutation of GCH1 (DYT5) or other enzymatic defects of the neurotransmitter formation pathway. The clinical features of DYT1, DYT5, DYT11, DYT12 and other primary dystonias presenting in childhood are described. The treatment of dystonias depends on the anatomic distribution. Focal dystonias are best treated with botulinum toxin type A. Most of generalized dystonias are improved by oral drugs (trihexiphenidil, baclofen, clonazepam, tizanidine, tetrabenazine, neuroleptics) in monotherapy or in associations. Intratecal baclofen and deep brain stimulation are the most useful treatments of severe childhood dystonias.

Comparator studies that assess treatment effects in a clinical setting have improved the understanding of the efficacy and tolerability of prophylactic treatments for chronic migraine (CM). It is premature to recommend device-based treatments, such as occipital nerve stimulation, vagal nerve stimulation, and patent foramen ovale closure for CM, because clinical trials are in the preliminary stages. Physical therapy techniques, like applying heat or cold packs, ultrasonography, and electrical stimulation, have been shown to lessen pain. Nonpharmacologic treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy, stress management, and biofeedback, have been investigated and proved effective in some areas of pain management, including migraine. However, pharmacologic interventions may be necessary for effective, long-term prophylaxis. Several medications under investigation, including topiramate, gabapentin, tizanidine, and amitriptyline, have proved efficacious in reducing the number of migraine episodes and the pain associated with migraine, although adverse events may prevent continued use of some agents. Evidence supports the use of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) for CM, with or without medication overuse, to achieve a significant reduction in headache episodes. Efficacy of BoNT-A for CM is comparable with or better than that of valproate and topiramate, with better tolerability. Predictors of response to BoNT-A for CM appear to include predominantly unilateral location of the headache and the presence of cutaneous or muscle allodynia. BoNT-A has been demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated, with rare discontinuations due to adverse events. Recent clinical trials indicate that rational combination therapy may have a place in treating refractory CM. Well-controlled multicenter trials are awaited.

Effects of clonidine and tizanidine, which have antinociceptive and alpha 2-agonistic actions, were studied on the release of substance P from slices of spinal cord from the rat. Veratridine-evoked depolarization induced a 2-3-fold increase in the release of substance P from the slices of spinal cord. Exposure of the cord tissue to 10 microM clonidine and tizanidine significantly reduced the release of substance P. The inhibitory effects of clonidine and tizanidine were attenuated by pre-exposure of the tissue to 10 microM piperoxane, which has alpha 2-antagonistic activity and the inhibitory effect of clonidine was attenuated by 10 microM yohimbine. Moreover, the inhibitory effects of clonidine and tizanidine were also blocked by a small dose of prazosin, an antagonist for alpha 1- and alpha 2B-receptors. None of the antagonists had any effect on release of substance P, when given alone. These results suggest that alpha 2B-adrenoceptors are involved in the inhibitory effects of clonidine and tizanidine on the release of substance P.

Treatment of manifestations: Drugs that may reduce spasticity and muscle tightness include baclofen, tizanidine, dantrolene, and diazepam. Physical therapy and assistive walking devices often reduce contractures, provide support, and promote stability. Occupational therapy helps with activities of daily living. Surveillance: annual neurologic evaluation to identify potential complications of spasticity, such as contractures.

Migraine research has traditionally focused on the more common episodic form of the disorder, but recent clinical trials have started to focus on chronic migraine or chronic daily headache. Topiramate, onabotulinum toxin type A, gabapentin, petasites and tizanidine are among the agents that appear to be effective in the treatment of chronic migraine. New acute medications including an inhaled form of dihydroergotamine will soon be available and neuromodulatory procedures such as occipital nerve stimulation may be effective for the most disabled patients. In the past few years, other studies have shed light on potential risk factors for chronic migraine such as medication-overuse headache, temporomandibular disorders, obstructive sleep apnea and obesity.

One of the treatment alternative of withdrawal symptoms of patients suffering from opiate dependence is to apply the clonidine in combination or itself. This remedy is not in commercial trade in our country. It is expectable according to the recent data analysing the effects of the alfa2 adreneregic agonist tizanidine that tizanidine has the similar protective effect as clonidine with the resembling target point. Based on this theory a research was done, in the course of which the i.v. heroin users who presented themselves at the Drug Outpatient Department of Buda between 1.10.1998-8.01.1999. were divided into two groups. The groups had got the usual detoxification treatment, but in the experimental group tizanidine were given in 3 x 8 mg/day dose too. Sixteen patients were in the tizanidine group, 10 patients were in the control group. The patients estimated the intensity of 7 symptoms of withdrawal (sweating, nervousness, insomnia, tremor, diarrhoea, muscle pain, drug craving) on a subjective scale day by day. The analysis showed that the tizanidine treatment decreased the intensity of the withdrawal symptoms in every symptom type examined. The ten days long acute withdrawal period were accomplished by all of the patients, but in the short course of the following (mean 9 and 11 weeks in the treated and the control groups respectively) there were three relapses in each group (3/16 in the treated and 3/10 in the control).

Spasticity is a frequently observed motor impairment that develops after stroke; it can cause pain and disability in those affected. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tizanidine, a centrally acting alpha(2)-adrenergic agonist, in the treatment of stroke-related spasticity.

The effects of the opioid agonist dextromethorphan and the alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonist tizanidine on ouabain-induced cardiac arrhythmias were investigated in rats. Ouabain (10 mg/kg i.v.) elicited ventricular arrhythmias in all of the control rats. Administration of dextromethorphan (25 mg/kg i.v.) and tizanidine (0.1 mg/kg i.v.) 30 min before ouabain treatment significantly reduced the incidence of arrhythmias. We suggest that dextromethorphan and tizanidine showed these effects by decreasing excitatory amino acid (EAA) activity. It can be speculated that opioids and other EAA antagonists may have antiarrhythmic actions through both their central and peripheral effects as well.

A series of perturbations was applied to the spastic ankle joint of twenty-one spinal cord injured subjects, and the resulting torques were recorded. A parallel-cascade system identification method was used to separate intrinsic and reflex torques, and to identify the contribution of these components to dynamic ankle stiffness at different ankle positions, while subjects remained relaxed.

Spontaneous hemopericardium is a complication of anticoagulant therapy with not only vitamin-K-antagonists, but also with nonvitamin-K-antagonist oral anticoagulants. We report a polymorbid 75-year old male under a therapy with dabigatran, valsartan, amlodipine, nicorandil, furosemide, atorvastatin, bisoprolol, metformin, tizanidine, pantoprazole, and tramadol. He suffered from chest pain for 4 months. Coronary angiography showed only ectatic coronary arteries. He started taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. He was hospitalized because of dyspnea starting 10 days before admission, melena, and renal failure. Hemopericardium was diagnosed and pericardiocentesis yielded 2000 ml hemorrhagic fluid. Review of previous echocardiograms showed a 4 mm echo-free space, epicardial fat or pericardial effusion. A small (<10 mm) echo-free space in a patient on anticoagulant therapy should not be considered as trivial, but additional imaging studies should be carried out. If a pericardial effusion is newly diagnosed in a patient during anticoagulant therapy, the pharmacotherapy should be revised concerning potentially interacting drugs, like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and dosage of the anticoagulant drug. Vitamin-K-antagonists with their possibility of laboratory monitoring and availability of an antidote should be preferred over nonvitamin-K-antagonist oral anticoagulants.

Chronic daily headache (CDH), a heterogeneous group of headache disorders occurring on at least 15 days per month, affects up to 4% to 5% of the general population. CDH disorders include transformed (or chronic) migraine, chronic tension-type headache, new daily persistent headache, and hemicrania continua. Patients with CDH have greater disability and lower quality of life than episodic migraine patients and often overuse headache pain medications. To date, only topiramate, gabapentin, tizanidine, fluoxetine, amitriptyline, and botulinum toxin type A (BoNTA) have been evaluated as prophylactic treatment of CDH in randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, or active comparator-controlled trials. The evidence supporting the use of BoNTA as prophylaxis of CDH is composed of larger and longer trials, as over 1000 patients were evaluated for up to 11 months duration. Compared with placebo BoNTA has significantly reduced the frequency of headache episodes, a recommended efficacy measure for headache trials and has been demonstrated to be safe and very well tolerated with few discontinuations due to adverse events. Side effects are generally transient, mild to moderate, and nonsystemic. The results of clinical trials using traditional oral pharmacotherapy, while supportive of their use as prophylactic treatment of CDH, are limited by several factors, including small numbers of patients, the choice of efficacy measures, and short treatment periods. The use of oral agents was associated with systemic side effects, which may limit their effectiveness as prophylactic treatment of CDH.

A crystallization series of tizanidine hydrochloride, used as a muscle relaxant for spasticity acting centrally as an α(2)-adrenergic agonist, yielded single crystals of the free base and the hydrochloride salt. The crystal structures of tizanidine [systematic name: 5-chloro-N-(imidazolidin-2-ylidene)-2,1,3-benzothiadiazol-4-amine], C(9)H(8)ClN(5)S, (I), and tizanidine hydrochloride {systematic name: 2-[(5-chloro-2,1,3-benzothiadiazol-4-yl)amino]imidazolidinium chloride}, C(9)H(9)ClN(5)S(+)·Cl(-), (II), have been determined. Tizanidine crystallizes with two almost identical molecules in the asymmetric unit (r.m.s. deviation = 0.179 Å for all non-H atoms). The molecules are connected by N-H···N hydrogen bonds forming chains running along [2 ̅11]. The present structure determination corrects the structure determination of tizanidine by John et al. [Acta Cryst. (2011), E67, o838-o839], which shows an incorrect tautomeric form. Tizanidine does not crystallize as the usually drawn 2-amino-imidazoline tautomer, but as the 2-imino-imidazolidine tautomer. This tautomer is present in solution as well, as shown by (1)H NMR analysis. In tizanidine hydrochloride, cations and anions are connected by N-H···Cl hydrogen bonds to form layers parallel to (100).

This study evaluated Fos-like immunoreactivity in rat lumbar spinal cord neurons following peripheral noxious heat stimulation and the modifications induced by pharmacological agents. Under urethane anaesthesia, the hindpaw was stimulated by dipping it in a regulated temperature bath at various temperatures (44-65 degrees C) and for various durations (5 s to 2 min). There was no Fos-like immunoreactivity in lumbar spinal cord neurons when the paw was stimulated at 44 degrees C for 15 s. From 46 to 52 degrees C, the number of Fos-like immunoreactivity neurons increased with increasing stimulation temperature, but was decreased at 65 degrees C as compared to 52 degrees C. At 52 degrees C, the number of Fos-like immunoreactivity neurons increased with the duration of stimulation. Fos-like immunoreactive neurons in the L4 segment were almost exclusively located in laminae I-II. On the basis of the results of the latter experiments, we chose a stimulation of 52 degrees C for 15 s to perform pharmacological investigations. The number of Fos-like immunoreactive neurons induced by the heat stimulation was significantly decreased by pretreatment with morphine (42, 64 and 75% decrease as compared to control values after 2.5, 5 and 7.5 mg/kg i.v. respectively), and these effects were blocked by naloxone. When various stimulation intensities (46-52 degrees C) were used, the effects of morphine (5 mg/kg i.v.) were most marked when the temperature was highest. In morphine-tolerant rats, morphine (5 mg/kg i.v.) was half as potent in decreasing Fos-like immunoreactivity induced by the heat stimulation than in non-tolerant rats. RB 101, a systemically active mixed inhibitor of enkephalin-metabolising enzymes, significantly decreased Fos-like immunoreactivity induced by heat stimulation (19, 29 and 48% decreases as compared to control values at 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg i.v. respectively) and these effects were blocked by naloxone. Aspirin (150 mg/kg i.v.), proacetaminophen (300 mg/kg i.v.) and tizanidine, a centrally acting myorelaxant (0.25-1 mg/kg i.v.), had no effect on the number of Fos-like immunoreactivity neurons induced by heat stimulation. The use of immunochemistry of the c-Fos protein as a pharmacological test in order to gauge antinociceptive effects at the dorsal horn level is discussed.

Back pain and the whiplash syndrome are very common diseases involving tremendous costs and extensive medical effort. A quick and effective reduction of symptoms, especially pain, is required. In two prospective randomized studies, patients with either lumbar radiculopathy in the segments L5/S1 or the whiplash syndrome were investigated. Inclusion criteria were as follows: either clinically verified painful lumbar radiculopathy in the segments L5/S1 and a Laségue's sign of 30 degrees (or more), or typical signs of the whiplash syndrome such as painful restriction of rotation and flexion/extension. Exclusion criteria were prolapsed intervertebral discs, systemic neurological diseases, epilepsy, and pregnancy. A total of 100 patients with lumbar radiculopathy and 92 with the whiplash syndrome were selected and entered in the study following a 1:1 ratio. Both groups (magnetic field treatment and controls) received standard medication consisting of diclofenac and tizanidine, while the magnetic field was only applied in group 1, twice a day, for a period of two weeks. In patients suffering from radiculopathy, the average time until pain relief and painless walking was 8.2 +/- 0.5 days in the magnetic field group, and 11.7 +/- 0.5 days in controls p < 0.04). In patients with the whiplash syndrome, pain was measured on a ten-point scale. Pain in the head was on average 4.6 before and 2.1 after treatment in those receiving magnetic field treatment, and 4.2/3.5 in controls. Neck pain was on average 6.3/1.9 as opposed to 5.3/4.6, and pain in the shoulder/arm was 2.4/0.8 as opposed to 2.8/2.2 (p < 0.03 for all regions). Hence, magnetic fields appear to have a considerable and statistically significant potential for reducing pain in cases of lumbar radiculopathy and the whiplash syndrome.

There is a large body of evidence for the effective use of tizanidine monotherapy in the management of spasticity. A case study demonstrates that combination therapy can effectively control spasticity while better managing dose-dependent adverse events, although additional studies need to be performed to confirm these results.

Data from three placebo-controlled and 11 active-controlled studies of tizanidine were combined to permit analysis of the subsets, which were too small to evaluate within the individual studies. Overall analysis of placebo-controlled data confirms the effectiveness of tizanidine in reducing muscle tone in patients with spasticity of spinal cord origin. Subset analyses suggest that patients with more severe spasticity are more likely to respond, but age, sex, and race were not predictive of response. Comparisons of tizanidine with active controls showed no differences in efficacy compared with baclofen or diazepam. However, when compared with controls, patients treated with tizanidine did not experience increased weakness. Furthermore, patients tolerated tizanidine better than the control medications. More patients experienced adverse events during tizanidine treatment buy zanaflex than did patients receiving placebo. The most common adverse events reported were dry mouth, somnolence, asthenia, and dizziness. Mild elevations in liver function tests were noted occasionally, but improved in all patients with dose reduction or withdrawal. Three patients from the double-blind database reported formed visual hallucinations. All three cleared; two continued tizanidine, and one discontinued.

1. In standing humans, toe-up rotation of a platform induces a short-latency (SLR) and a medium-latency response (MLR) in both soleus (Sol) and flexor digitorum brevis (FDB) muscles. Toe-down rotation evokes a MLR in the tibialis anterior (TA). The SLR is the counterpart of the monosynaptic stretch reflex, but the origin of the MLR is still debated. By means of tizanidine (an alpha 2-adrenergic receptor agonist) we tested the hypothesis that the MLR is relayed by group II afferent fibres, since animal data indicate that tizanidine or stimulation of monoaminergic brainstem centres decrease the excitability of spinal interneurones supplied by those fibres. In addition, we compared the effect of the drug on these responses with that induced by stabilization of posture. 2. Eight subjects received tizanidine (150 micrograms kg-1 orally) or placebo, in a single-blind design. Platform rotations were delivered prior to administration and for 3 h afterwards. Both TA- and FDB-MLRs decreased in size, starting from about 1 h after tizanidine administration. Sol-SLR was unaffected. Response latencies were unchanged. Placebo induced no changes in any response. In each subject, the extent of TA-MLR depression induced by holding onto a frame and by tizanidine was superimposable. 3. The selective effect of tizanidine on MLR supports the notion that it is relayed through group II afferent fibres. The similar effects of holding and tizanidine on the response suggests that Clomid Reviews it is modulated by monoaminergic centres.

Four trials involving 139 participants were included. The primary outcome measure in each was pain relief. Three trials with an unclear risk of bias compared one of the non-antiepileptic drugs tizanidine, tocainide or pimozide with carbamazepine. In a trial of tizanidine involving 12 participants (one dropped out due to unrelated disease) one of five treated with tizanidine and four of six treated with Geodon 150 Mg carbamazepine improved, risk ratio 0.30 (95% CI 0.05 to 1.89). Few side effects were noted with tizanidine. In a study involving 12 participants there was an improvement in mean pain scores with tocainide similar to that with carbamazepine, but significant side effects limited its use. In the pimozide study more participants improved on pimozide (48/48) than with carbamazepine (27/48) (risk ratio 1.76, 95% CI 1.37 to 2.26). Up to 83% of participants reported adverse effects but these did not lead to withdrawal from the study. A trial with low risk of bias involving 47 participants compared 0.5% proparacaine hydrochloride eyedrops with placebo but did not show any significant benefits or side effects.

Tinnitus, the phantom perception of sounds, is a highly prevalent disorder. Although a wide variety of drugs have been investigated off label for the treatment of tinnitus, there is no approved pharmacotherapy. We report an open-label exploratory pilot study to assess the effect of muscle relaxants acting on the central nervous system on tinnitus patients. Cyclobenzaprine at high (30 mg) and low doses (10 mg), orphenadrine (100 mg), tizanidine (24 mg) and eperisone (50 mg) were administered to a maximum of 20 patients per group over a 12-week period Clomid Fertility Drug Side Effects . High-dose cyclobenzaprine resulted in a significant reduction in the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) score between baseline and week 12 in the intention-to-treat sample. On the other hand, other treatments were not effective. These results were confirmed in an explorative analysis where baseline corrected THI and Clinical Global Impression scores at week 12 were compared between groups. The present open trial presents a new promising pharmacotherapy for tinnitus that should be validated in placebo-controlled double-blind trials.

Animals Mysoline Dosage were exposed to 10 min of spinal ischemia to induce an increase in SRA. Increase in SRA was identified by simultaneous increase in recorded electromyography (EMG) activity and ankle resistance measured during computer-controlled ankle dorsiflexion (40°/3 s) in fully awake animals. Animals with increased SRA were divided into several experimental subgroups and treated as follows: (i) Tiz administered systemically at the dose of 1 mg kg(-1), or IT at 10 μg or 50 μg delivered as a single dose; (ii) treatment with systemic Tiz was followed by the systemic injection of vehicle, or by nonselective AR antagonist without affinity for I receptors; yohimbine (Yoh), α2A AR antagonist; BRL44408 (BRL), α2B AR antagonist; ARC239 (ARC), nonselective AR and I(1) receptor antagonist; efaroxan (Efa), or nonselective AR and I(2) receptor antagonist; idazoxan (Ida); (iii) treatment with IT Tiz was followed by the IT injection of selective α2A AR antagonist; atipamezole (Ati). In a separate group of spastic animals the effect of systemic Tiz treatment (1 mg/kg) or isoflurane anesthesia on H-reflex activity was also studied.

Rofecoxib increased the area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC(0-infinity)) of tizanidine by 13.6-fold [95% confidence interval (CI) 8.0, 15.6; P < 0.001), peak plasma concentration (C(max)) by 6.1-fold (4.8, 7.3; P < 0.001) and elimination half-life (t(1/2)) from 1.6 to 3.0 h (P < 0.001). Consequently, rofecoxib markedly increased the blood pressure-lowering and sedative effects of tizanidine (P < 0.05). Rofecoxib increased several fold the tizanidine/M-3 and tizanidine/M-4 ratios in plasma and urine and the tizanidine/M-5, tizanidine/M-9 and tizanidine/M-10 ratios in urine (P < 0.05). In addition, it increased the plasma caffeine/paraxanthine ratio by 2.4-fold (95% CI 1.4, 3.4 Inderal Xl Dosage ; P = 0.008) and this ratio correlated with the tizanidine/metabolite ratios. Finally, the AUC(0-25) of rofecoxib correlated with the placebo phase caffeine/paraxanthine ratio (r = 0.80, P = 0.01).

Intrathecally administered amiloride (12.5 μg to 100 μg Celexa Overdose ) and tizanidine (0.5 μg to 5 μg), given separately, produced a significant dose-related suppression of the biphasic responses in the formalin test. Isobolographic analysis revealed that the combination of intrathecal amiloride and tizanidine synergistically reduced phase I and II activities. Intrathecally administered yohimbine antagonized or attenuated the antinociceptive effect of amiloride, tizanidine and the amiloride-tizanidine mixture. Intrathecally administered amiloride synergistically interacts with tizanidine to reduce the nociceptive response in the formalin test, most likely by activating α2-adrenoceptors in the spinal cord.

Although spasticity of varying severity affects up to 80% of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) during the course of their disease, the symptom is often overlooked and undertreated. Despite the availability of oral antispasticity treatments (baclofen, tizanidine and others), approximately one-third of MS patients in Europe and the USA experience moderate or severe nonfocalized spasticity. At present, a thorough clinical evaluation of MS-related spasticity that takes into account the patient's own perception of spasms, spasticity-related pain and other associated symptoms is not common in daily neurological practice. Some of the usual spasticity scales, such as Triphala Drug Interactions the Ashworth and modified Ashworth scales, reflect the observer's measurement of spasticity at a particular point in time. Herbal (smoked) cannabis has long been recognized as a possible option for relief of spasticity and neuropathic pain, but pertinent concerns about psychoactive effects and addiction risk have prevented its common use. An innovative method of benefiting from the mode of action of cannabinoids while limiting their drawbacks is to reduce peak plasma levels of 9-delta-tetrahydrocannabinol and counteract psychoactivity with higher than naturally occurring proportions of a second cannabinoid, cannabidiol. Sativex® oromucosal spray (1:1 ratio of 9-delta-tetrahydrocannabinol/cannabidiol) has recently been approved in a number of EU countries and elsewhere for use in patients with MS-related spasticity who are resistant to treatment with other antispasticity medications. In clinical trials, Sativex provided initial relief of spasticity symptoms within the first 4 weeks of treatment (trial period) in up to about half of patients resistant to other available oral antispasticity medications and demonstrated clinically significant improvement in spasticity (30% or higher reduction from baseline) in three-quarters of the initial responders. Adverse events were limited mainly to mild or moderate cases of somnolence and dizziness. Under everyday clinical practice conditions, Sativex at a mean daily dose of <7 sprays/day, was shown to relieve spasticity in about 70% of patients previously resistant to treatment. Clear improvements were also noted in associated symptoms such as sleep disturbances, bladder problems, loss of mobility and cramps. In large observational studies, >80% of patients reported no adverse events with the use of Sativex and interim data from safety registries in the UK and Spain indicate a low risk for serious adverse drug reactions. Follow-up studies in Sativex responders support continued benefit without the need to increase doses for at least 1 year. Sativex appears to be a promising solution for a meaningful proportion of patients with MS-related spasticity who have inadequate response to current antispasticity medications.

Spasticity is a common disabling feature of multiple sderosis. A variety of drugs are in regular use as oral treatment induding badofen, dantrolene, tizanidine, and diazepam. Published evidence of effectiveness is limited. Most trials are of small size, of short duration, and have not reported on functional outcomes. Studies have been published which suggest that badofen, tizanidine, and diazepam are all effective in reducing dinical measures of spasticity, but there is little evidence that they lead to an improvement in patient function. There is no evidence to suggest any difference in Levitra Vs Viagra Review effectiveness between them. The evidence that dantrolene has any effect on spasticity is of poor quality. Diazepam and dantrolene are associated with more side effects than baclofen and tizanidine. There is evidence for the effectiveness of gabapentin in reducing spasticity and improving function in the short term, though longer-term studies are needed to establish its true value. One randomized controlled trial of threonine does not support its effectiveness.

The overall efficacy and tolerance of a new skeletal muscle relaxant DS 103-282 was evaluated by treating 10 patients with chronic spinal spasticity. Other agents such as baclofen, dantrolene sodium or diazepam had been only minimally beneficial in these patients. Treatment was started with DS 103-282 at a mean dosage of 7.4 mg. per day which was adjusted according to response up to 14.5 mg. per day at the end of the 8-week trial period. Objective rating assessments showed improvement in spasticity, medullary automatism and clonus. No changes were recorded in the reflex pattern nor improvement in disability scores. Only a few mild side-effects were reported, there was a noticeable absence of sedation, but reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure was noted in most patients. DS 103-282 appears to have demonstrable myotonolytic action and in view of its good tolerance it deserves further investigation.

Nine trials of different non-antiepileptic drugs involving 223 participants were included. Each trial investigated one non-antiepileptic drug. Two trials tested baclofen. In one, more people gained 50% reduction from baseline than with placebo (relative risk 15.00, 95% CI 0.97 to 231.84, P value = 0.05). In the other, slightly more participants on baclofen had a 75% reduction in attacks on the 10th day compared with carbamazepine (relative risk 2.38, 95% CI 0.83 to 6.85, P value = 0.11). One trial showed no significant difference in reduction in average daily frequency of attacks with L-Baclofen compared with racemic baclofen. Tizanidine was investigated in two trials. In one, the proportion of people with reduction in the average number of paroxysms per day increased with tizanidine compared with placebo (relative risk 8.00, 95% CI 1.21 to 52.69, P value = 0.03). In the other, one of five participants improved in visual analog scale score with tizanidine and four of six with carbamazepine (relative risk 0.30, 95% CI 0.05 to 1.89, P value = 0.20). One study showed that the improvement in mean values of pain scores with tocainide was similar to that of carbamazepine. In one study more participants improved during the pimozide than the carbamazepine period (relative risk 1.78, 95% CI 1.39 to 2.28). In one study, proparacaine hydrochloride 0.5% instillation into the eyes was not significantly different from placebo (relative risk 1.06, 95% CI 0.37 to 2.99, P value = 0.92). In another, there was moderate or marked improvement in seven of nine participants treated with clomipramine and three of nine with amitriptyline after a 12-week treatment (RR 2.33, 95% CI 0.87 to 6.27).

Amiloride has been reported to produce a wide variety of actions, thereby affecting several ionic channels and a multitude of receptors and enzymes. Intrathecal α2-adrenergic receptor agonists produce pronounced analgesia, and amiloride modulates α2-adrenergic receptor agonist binding and function, acting via the allosteric site on the α2A-adrenergic receptor.

Tizanidine, an alpha-2 adrenergic agonist, is a centrally active muscle relaxant and a spasmolytic drug. The aim of our study was to investigate the activity of tizanidine on maximal electroshock seizures (MES) in mice. In the first part of the study, convulsive current 50 (CC 50) value to produce seizures was found. Then, tizanidine was given intraperitoneally (IP) at the doses of 0.5, 1, and 2 mg/kg, and orally (PO) at the doses of 5, 10, 20, 40 mg/kg. We found that tizanidine at the doses of 1 and 2 mg/kg IP and 40 mg/kg PO caused a significant protection against MES. In the second part of the study, after pretreatment with yohimbine, an alpha-2 adrenergic receptor blocker, at the dose of 2 mg/kg, anticonvulsant effect of tizanidine is diminished. We concluded that the mode of action of the anticonvulsant effect of tizanidine may be mediated by the central alpha-2 adrenergic receptors.

The anti-spastic effect of a new drug, tizanidine, was compared with that of baclofen in a double-blind clinical trial; 40 seriously handicapped patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) were randomly allocated treatment with one or the other drug for a 6-week period. The antispastic effect was evaluated by clinical criteria. The optimal daily dose of both drugs varied considerably from patient to patient, and was on the average 23 mg for Tizanidin and 59 mg for baclofen. To the extent an antispastic effect was observed, the 2 drugs appeared to be equally effective when given at a 1:2 ratio (mg tizanidine: mg baclofen). Side effects of both drugs were sleepiness, muscular weakness and dry mouth. Tizanidine had a mild depressive effect on blood pressure. Sudden withdrawal of both drugs was accompanied by a transient relative increase of spasticity in approximately half the patients. There were no other changes suggesting physical or psychological dependence. The present study underscores that neither baclofen nor tizanidine are ideal antispastic drugs, and emphasize the need for further research.
