From June 2002, I began to use zanaflex as pain killer and for sleep problems. I began to take 1mg tablet first and gradually increased to 12mg with my doctorís prescription within a month. I began to consume it in the morning and in the middle of the day, started from half of a 2 mg capsule and extended to a one full tablet. In brief, my intake was a 2 mg capsule in the morning, another 2mg at the noon and last a 2mg at night. I faced side effects like restless leg, and I stopped consuming Klonopin at night for sleep. I reduced my Coffee and began to take Klonopin again, as a result my leg pain reduced in an extent. Now I am taking 4mg in the morning, 4mg at the middle of the day and a 14 mg at night. This helped me to sleep well and made me energetic whole the day. I perform aquatic exercises and follow what ever my therapist saying to me. This medication has its own side effects like sleepless nights, fluctuations in blood pressure. But I donít think, Tizanidine is the cause of these problems. But I will continue the treatment with the same intense.
