Advice & Tips: This medication served me very well for several yrs. after I'd exhausted the use of Baclofen, which had become totally ineffective for me. This medication is not instant in terms of effectiveness. I had to "wean off" of the Baclofen & "ramp up" the dosage of Zanaflex & maintain a consistent level of this medication (in my bloodstream) before it became truly effective. After it became ineffective singularly, I began using it in combination with Keppra & I'm still realizing positive results using this regimen. I do experience some minor muscle fatigue & occasional dry mouth while using Zanaflex, however nothing close in terems of negative side effects as compared to Baclofen.
