A 20-year-old male asked:
Whats the diff between zanaflex (tizanidine) & soma, and which one tends to work better for torticollis & spasms?

Muscle relaxers : Both medications are muscle relaxers. They should both work somewhat for torticollis but have different side effects that shod be discussed with a physician to determine the best choice for a particular person. Other treatments such as botulinum toxin injections should be considered for torticollis as they can be very effective.
