Dantrolene

I’m maybe being considered for a drug called Dantrolene for the spasticity in my leg. I am told this is an ‘older drug’. I don’t know much about it. I’m not able to take Baclofen for the stiffness, as it makes my mood very low and Tizanidine makes me want to sleep all the time! So the Dr is looking into Dantrolene. Anybody got any experience of it?
