Caution warranted: Hopefully the same physician is prescribing all your medications, or at least knows all you're taking. Zanaflex (tizanidine) is a muscle relaxer that can cause drowsiness. This could be accentuated if you're on lithium. However, i see you're also on klonopin, which is more likely to cause sedation than lithium. Please discuss all these with your doctor and your pharmacist.
