I take Zanaflex (tizanidine) or flexeril (have both) and just started necon 10/11. I read there could be interactions with zanaflex (tizanidine). Do i need to be concerned?
Yes- Sedation/dizzy: If you use Zanaflex (tizanidine) chronically, know that the concentration of Zanaflex is increased when used with oral contraceptive and may result in increased sedation, fatigue/ low blood pressure (hypotensive issues- dizziness, fainting). You may want to use Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) instead but also watch out for drowsiness, fatigue, dizziness. Avoid alcohol and use caution when driving while on these drugs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
