Tizan 2 mg treats muscle spasms. It contains the Tizanidine as the active ingredient Tizanidine, which is considered a muscle relaxant. Tizanidine helps manage spasticity caused by multiple sclerosis, acquired brain surgery, or spinal cord injury. It has also been shown to be clinically effective in managing pain syndromes such as lower back pain, myofascial pain, and trigeminal neuralgia. Do not take this muscle relaxant if you are allergic to Tizanidine or its inactive ingredients.
You should not use Tizan 2 mg if you have had an allergic reaction to Tizanidine or if you are also using the antidepressant fluvoxamine or certain other drugs to control blood pressure such as methyldopa prazosin or clonidine. Your doctor will tell you how much of this medicine to take and how often. Always take Tizanidine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure about the correct dosage. If you are an adult, your doctor may start you on a single dose of 2 mg, gradually increasing as per your condition. The medicine is available in the form of tablets for oral use. Swallow the pill with a glass full of water. You should not make any changes to your dosing regimen.
