My PM changed my muscle relaxer from Flexeril to Zanaflex yesterday. Within an hour of taking it, I felt like a rag doll! Totally relaxed but also very sleepy. Not sure if I was asleep or clinically unconscious! It lasted for about four hours and then wore off. I had to be at work early this morning or I would have taken the second pill at 3:00 am. Each pill is 4mg each. She said I could take one or two at a time depending on need. I do have to watch my blood work for any potential liver issues while taking it. Anyone else out there have similar experience with Zanaflex?
