Tizanidine is effective in both acute painful muscle spasm and spasticity of spinal and central genesis. Reduces spasticity and clonic cramps and spasms, as a result of which the resistance to passive movements decreases and the volume of active movements increases.
The drug is intended for oral administration according to the instructions of the doctor. To minimize side effects (primarily dizziness and/or drowsiness) at the beginning of treatment, slow dose escalation under the guidance of a doctor may be required. Ask your doctor or pharmacist how to take this medicine correctly and follow the instructions.
Administration of the drug can lead to the formation of drug dependence, especially after administration for a long time or in high doses. In such cases, with a sharp cessation of intake, "withdrawal syndrome" is possible (anxiety, tremor, increased blood pressure, heart rate, increased muscle tension). If it is necessary to stop a regular long course of tizanidine, lower the dose gradually in accordance with the doctor's instructions - this will help avoid "withdrawal syndrome."

Muscle relaxants are a group of medicines widely used in modern neurology, traumatology, and even rheumatology. The mechanism of action of drugs is designed in such a way that these drugs reduce pathologically increased muscle tone, which often leads to soreness and spasticity. Muscle relaxants are drugs that are actively used in osteochondrosis, because over the course of this disease, aggravated pain is more often spastic. You should know which drugs are the most effective.
Muscle relaxants are not fully understood in terms of mechanism of action to date. The peculiarity of most muscle relaxers is that there is a blockade of relaxation of the skeletal muscle due to the blockade of H-cholinoreceptors in the synapses, which stops the supply of nerve impulse to the skeletal muscle. This is how the segmented muscle groups relax.
Spasticity is a condition associated with an involuntary increase in muscle tone that leads to resistance to normal body movements and can cause pain in some people.
The diagnosis of spasticity involves a thorough medical history and examination, with a particular focus on the potential causes of symptoms, in order to correctly diagnose and make treatment recommendations. Important factors to consider include any traumatic events that may have affected the CNS, changes in medications, harmful stimuli, and changes in intracranial pressure. In addition, electromyography provides valuable information on the rate of nerve conduction, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) helps to visualize causal damage in the central nervous system.
