I used to take baclofen 10mg, two at night, one sometimes two in the morning and occassionaly one in the afternoon. I get spasms at night and very stiff legs in the morning, my doc has now put me on tizanidine 2mg, one to two, three times a day.
I started last night with two, not sure how effective they were for the spasms but I was still stiff this morning. They knocked me out last night quite quickly and the one this morning left me very drowsy, I took a baclofen during the day as I was at work and couldn’t face the drowsiness.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me their experience/opinion on tizanidine vs baclofen. I was hoping to be given something stonger that would last longer so it would stop my night spasms and morning stiffness but am I right in thinking tizanidine doesn’t last as long as baclofen. Anyone know how long they last and does taking more make them last any longer?
Thanks for reading.
