What is chlorzoxazone?
Chlorzoxazone is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.
Chlorzoxazone is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain or injury.
Chlorzoxazone may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to chlorzoxazone.
Before taking chlorzoxazone, tell your doctor if you have liver disease. You may need a lower dose or special monitoring during therapy.
This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.
It is not known whether chlorzoxazone passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
Chlorzoxazone can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.
Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase some of the side effects of chlorzoxazone.
Cold or allergy medicine, narcotic pain medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression or anxiety can add to sleepiness caused by chlorzoxazone. Tell your doctor if you regularly use any of these medicines, or any other muscle relaxer.
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. An overdose of chlorzoxazone can be fatal.
Overdose symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, muscle weakness, shallow breathing, or fainting.
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at your next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
There may be other drugs that can interact with chlorzoxazone. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor.
