Zanaflex belongs to a class of medications known as Central Alpha-2-Adrenergic Agonist.
Zanaflex is a highly effective medication used for MS (Multiple sclerosis) and CP (Cerebral palsy) treatment. It reduces spasms and spasticity by blocking nerve impulses (sensation of pain) that lead to muscles tightening.
Multiple scientific studies on Zanatex showed its benefits for spasticity treatment when compared with the control group.
MS treatment guidelines state that Zanaflex may be used in treatment where other medications like baclofen or gabapentin were not successful.
Zanaflex is also used to treat spinal injuries to relax muscle tone and offer temporary relief to patients.
How to take Zanaflex?
Zanaflex comes in form of oral tablets or oral capsules. Follow your doctor’s orders carefully. Any change in dosage or form of medication (capsules or tablets), as well as the time of administration, might influence muscle tone by increasing or decreasing it. Do not alter your dosage without medical advice.
