Is Zanaflex (tizanidine) the same thing as a strong valium?

Work differently: Both Zanaflex (tizanidine) and valium can cause muscle relaxation. They work by different mechanisms. They are not equivalent. Valium has a higher tendency to cause dependence then zanaflex (tizanidine).

Ciproflaxin and Zanaflex (tizanidine) together no good, why?

Hepatic inhibition: Basically Cipro (ciprofloxacin) decreases the ability of the liver to metabolize (process) tizanidine (zanaflex). This will increase the levels of tizanidine in the body. With this there is a significant risk of hypotension (very low blood pressure), bradycardia (very low heart rate), and changes in mental and physical activity abilities (psychomotor impairments). In other words can be dangerous.

What's the current street value of Zanaflex (tizanidine) 4 mg tablets?

What's the current street value of Zanaflex (tizanidine) 4 mg tablets?

No idea but...: This is one of the strangest questions I've seen on HealthTap. Are you looking to buy or sell them? I doubt any doctor here has any idea what the "street value" of various prescription drugs are. It's a REALLY bad idea to buy or sell drugs that haven't been prescribed by your doctor. It's sad to think drugs like Zanaflex (tizanidine) are being abused. Please don't participate in illegal & dangerous activities.

Can I take lithium and Zanaflex (tizanidine) together?

Can I take lithium and Zanaflex (tizanidine) together?

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.
