What is tizanidine?
Tizanidine (generic Zanaflex) is a prescription medication used to relieve muscle spasms. Tizanidine is a fast-acting medication, so your doctor will likely prescribe you multiple doses per day, or will advise you to take the medication 1 to 3 hours before your body will most benefit from it.
Muscle spasms are common occurrences that involved the sudden, involuntary movement of your muscles. These are often caused by dehydration, exercise, or stress.
