my neurologist had originally given Tizanidine to deal with my night spasms and spasticity. It worked a bit but because of the way it works, it runs out after about 6 hours. It's peak is at about 1 or 2 hours and right after taking it, the side effect of tiredness kicks in and made it hard for me to concentrate. I originally start at 2mg and there is a maximum you can take of 16mg per day (some up to 32 mg). Original dose was Tizanidine 4mg (2mg twice a day) I didn't have a problem with withdrawal symptoms of cessation of Tizanadine because I hadn't been taking it so long. I think the general rule is to reduce by 2mg every two weeks if you're on a lot more or for longer than 6 months I didn't like it, the cost was too much in terms of feeling like a zombie. things did get better after I started it at night instead of the day but it ran out while I was asleep and I got woken by the spasms. It's one of those drugs that you take if you think you're going to have trouble later , I wish I had advanced notice of spasticity!
