My chemist can’t get Tizanidine - anyone else having problems with supply?

Yes me, in the North of the country.

I ordered from my dispensing GP end of January and they couldn’t get any. Asked them for a paper prescription then phoned round all the local chemists to find some. Well pharmacy had some. Tesco said they didn’t expect any in until March.

Appt, with my neurologist so told him.

Problem is if you stop suddenly then there are side effects.

Get a written prescription and phone round. Good luck.

Got some from GP this month.


I’ve had to phone around the last 3 times I’ve had a prescription - today it was the 4th phone call and it was quite a distance to go and get them. They had just enough in stock for my prescription so they won’t have any for the next person…
