Tizanidine - Dosage and How to Use

How should Tizanidine be used?

  • ​Follow the instructions on your medicine label and take the medicine as prescribed by your doctor.
  • You may take the medication with or without food, but you should take it the same way every time i.e. either always with or always without food.
  • You may not experience any effect immediately after starting the medication as it may take up to a few weeks before this medication can exert its full effects. You should continue to take your medicines regularly as instructed by your doctor even if you feel well. Stopping your medicines without informing your healthcare professionals may cause your condition to become worse quickly.
  • Do not stop taking or adjust the dose of this medication, change brands or dosage forms of the medication without consulting your healthcare professionals.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Then take your next dose at the usual time. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose.
