Also known as:  Tizanidine.

Description

Generic Zanaflex is an agonist at (alpha) 2-adrenergic receptor sites and presumably reduces spasticity by increasing presynaptic inhibition of motor neurons. In animal models, Generic Zanaflex has no direct effect on skeletal muscle fibers or the neuromuscular junction, and no major effect on monosynaptic spinal reflexes. The effects of Generic Zanaflex are greatest on polysynaptic pathways. The overall effect of these actions is thought to reduce facilitation of spinal motor neurons.

The imidazoline chemical structure of Generic Zanaflex is related to that of the anti-hypertensive drug clonidine and other (alpha) 2 -adrenergic agonists. Pharmacological studies in animals show similarities between the two compounds, but Generic Zanaflex was found to have one-tenth to one-fiftieth (1/50) of the potency of clonidine in lowering blood pressure.

Zanaflex is also known as Tizanidine, Sirdalud.

Generic name of Generic Zanaflex is Tizanidine-Oral.

Brand name of Generic Zanaflex is Zanaflex.

Breast-feeding has important health and emotional benefits for both mother and infant, and should be encouraged. While there are some data to suggest migraine may improve during breast-feeding, more than half of women experience migraine recurrence with 1 month of delivery. Thus, a thorough knowledge base of the safety and recommended use of common acute and preventive migraine drugs during breast-feeding is vital to clinicians treating migraine sufferers. Choice of treatment should take into account the balance of benefit and risk of medication. For some of the medications commonly used during breast-feeding, there is not good evidence about benefits.

Tizanidine was shown to be superior to placebo in reducing the overall headache index (P =.0025), as well as mean headache days per week (P =.0193), severe headache days per week (P =.0211), average headache intensity (P =.0108), peak headache intensity (P =.0020), and mean headache duration (P =.0127). The mean percentage improvement during the last 4 weeks of treatment with tizanidine versus placebo was 54% versus 19% for the headache index (P =.0144), 55% versus 21% for severe headache days (P =.0331), 35% versus 19% for headache duration (P =.0142), 35% versus 20% for peak headache intensity (P =.0106), 33% versus 20% for average headache intensity (P =.0281), and 30% versus 22% for total headache days (P =.0593). Patients receiving tizanidine also scored higher ratings of overall headache improvement on a visual analog scale (P =.0069). There was no statistically significant difference in outcome for patients with chronic migraine versus those with only migrainous or tension-type headache. Adverse effects reported by more than 10% of the patients included somnolence (47%), dizziness (24%), dry mouth (23%), and asthenia (19%). Dropouts due to adverse events did not differ significantly between tizanidine and placebo.

Nowadays, based on several epidemiological data, iatrogenic disease is an emerging public health problem, especially in industrialized countries. Adverse drugs reactions (ADRs) are extremely common and, therefore, clinically, socially, and economically worthy of attention. Spontaneous reporting system for suspected ADRs represents the cornerstone of the pharmacovigilance, because it allows rapid detection of potential alarm signals related to drugs use. However, spontaneous reporting system shows several limitations, which are mainly related to under-reporting. In this paper, we describe two particular case reports, which emphasize some reasons of under-reporting and other common criticisms of spontaneous reporting systems.

Tizanidine, one of the few oral antispastic therapies approved for use in the USA, has a narrow therapeutic index that can often make optimal patient dosing difficult. We surveyed the published literature for data on potential tizanidine dose relationships to pharmacokinetics, drug safety and effectiveness, as well as to provide practical drug dosing advice.

Chronic migraine is an important public health problem. The aim of treatment should be to reduce migraine frequency and its negative impact on functioning, as well as to limit the use of acute medications. These goals may be accomplished by introducing effective prophylaxis. The aim of the present article is to critically review the published evidence on the pharmacological prophylaxis of chronic migraine, analysing published double-blind, placebo-controlled studies on adult patients. The results of the review indicate that tizanidine, gabapentin, valproic acid, and particularly topiramate are effective prophylactics against chronic migraine, with improvements in several endpoints that were significantly superior to those achieved by placebo. However, the different results found by different trials, as well as several methodological problems inherent in the trials, suggest the need for further research to provide clear indications from large, multicentre, controlled trials with homogeneous inclusion criteria and adequate endpoints.

At three months the scores of the placebo and baclofen group differed slightly for the spasm score (effect size=0.20) and substantially for the Ashworth scale (effect size=1.40) and pain score (effect size=0.94); health related quality of life showed no significant differences. Three months after implantation the baclofen group showed a significant, substantial improvement on the SIP "physical health", "mental health", "mobility", and "sleep and rest" subscales and on the HSCL mental health scale; patients receiving placebo showed no change. After one year of baclofen treatment significant (P<0.05) improvement was found on the SIP dimensions "mobility" and "body care and movement" with moderate effect sizes. Improvement on the SIP subscale "physical health" (P<0.05; effect size 0.86), the SIP overall score (without "ambulation"), and the "physical health" and overall scale of the HSCL was also significant, with effect sizes >0.80. Changes in health related behaviour were noted for "sleep and rest" and "recreation and pastimes" (P<0.01, P<0.05; effect size 0.95 and 0.63, respectively). Psychosocial behaviour showed no improvement.

This pilot study compared the metabolic effects of placebo and 6 mg and 12 mg of oral tizanidine in random double-blind cross-over fashion in five healthy volunteers. The metabolic measurements were made with a portable metabolic chart (Deltatrac, Datex/Instrumentarium, Helsinki, Finland). Heart rate (HR), systolic (BPS), mean (BPM) and diastolic (BPD) blood pressure were measured noninvasively. Subjective assessment of tiredness and dryness of mouth were measured by using visual analogue scales (VAS). There were no statistically significant differences in tiredness or dryness of mouth between the groups. BPD decreased significantly after both doses of tizanidine when compared to placebo (by an average of 12% after 6 mg of tizanidine and 15% after 12 mg of tizanidine from the baseline). Oxygen consumption and energy expenditure decreased significantly after 6 and 12 mg of tizanidine when compared to placebo. The average decrease in oxygen consumption was 3% after 6 mg of tizanidine and 8% after 12 mg of tizanidine, when compared to the baseline. Energy expenditure decreased by an average of 5% after 6 mg of tizanidine and 9% after 12 mg of tizanidine, when compared to the baseline. There were no other statistically significant differences between the groups. This study indicates that 6 and 12 mg of oral tizanidine can be useful for reducing energy expenditure and oxygen consumption without prominent cardiovascular effects.

Analgesic activity of brimonidine, clonidine, and tizanidine was investigated in wild-type C57B/6, alpha-2A, and alpha-2C knockout mice with allodynia induced by N-methyl-D-aspartate or sulprostone. The alpha receptor selectivity of the alpha agonists was assessed using functional in vitro recombinant assays.

This was a 6-month prospective study where a pharmacy benefit manager distributed evidence-based summaries of 18 different PDDIs that included references and suggested management strategies. Fax alerts were individualized letters sent to the prescriber of the second drug of a PDDI pair for an individual patient. A 16-item questionnaire to assess prescribers' perceptions of the intervention accompanied each individualized PDDI evidence-based summary.

Reduced stretch reflex activity was observed after the administration of either tizanidine or baclofen. We observed that tizanidine had a stronger inhibitory effect on knee extensors and plantar flexors whereas baclofen had a stronger inhibitory effect on the knee flexors. The effects of these drugs on strength during isometric and isokinetic tasks varied across participants, without a consistent reduction in torque output despite decreased electromyographic activity.

A total of 8,075 fax alerts were distributed with 977 returning questionnaires, yielding a 12.1% response rate. There were 848 (86.8%) responses completed by physicians, and 71 (7.3%) completed by nurse practitioners. The most common PDDI fax alerts sent were for warfarin-statin (3,511, 43.5%) and warfarin-thyroid (2,111, 26.1%) interactions. 42.6% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that fax alerts were a good way to communicate with them. However, 37.5% of respondents either agreed or strongly agreed that the fax alert was a "waste of my time." In contrast, respondents thought notification of carbamazepine-macrolide (mean 1.5 ± 0.71), ciprofloxacin-tizanidine (mean 2.3 ± 1.0), and statin-macrolide (mean 2.3 ± 1.1) was not a waste of time. Also, 59.1% of respondents either disagreed or strongly disagreed that they would prefer to receive a telephone call when interactions like this occur. Half (50.5%) of the respondents indicated their computer systems provided drug interaction alerts. Prescribers who had previously received alerts and specialists were less likely to respond to the questionnaire (OR = 0.685, P ≤ 0.0001 and OR = 0.851, P = 0.0205, respectively).

The effects of intravenous clonidine and tizanidine on nociceptive neurons in the nucleus ventralis posterolateralis (VPL) of the thalamus, a key station in the lateral system of ascending pain pathways, were evaluated in urethane-chloralose anesthetized cats. Intravenous clonidine and tizanidine produced a dose-dependent (5 and 10 micrograms/kg, and 25 and 50 micrograms/kg, respectively) suppression of responses of nociceptive specific (NS) and wide dynamic range (WDR) neurons in the VPL to high threshold splanchnic input. In contrast, the responses of both NS and WDR units to electrical stimulation of spinothalamic tract fibers in the ventrolateral funiculus (VLF) were little affected. We conclude that a site of suppressive action of the alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists, as observed in nociceptive VPL neurons, is at the level of the spinal dorsal horn rather than in the VPL itself.

Walking requires a constant adaptation of locomotor output from sensory afferent feedback mechanisms to ensure efficient and stable gait. We investigated the nature of the sensory afferent feedback contribution to the soleus motoneuronal drive and to the corrective stretch reflex by manipulating body load and ankle joint angle. The volunteers walked on a treadmill ( approximately 3.6 km/h) connected to a body weight support (BWS) system. To manipulate the load sensitive afferents the level of BWS was switched between 5 and 30% of body weight. The effect of transient changes in BWS on the soleus stretch reflex was measured by presenting dorsiflexion perturbations ( approximately 5 degrees, 360-400 degrees/s) in mid and late stances. Short (SLRs) and medium latency reflexes (MLRs) were quantified in a 15 ms analysis window. The MLR decreased with decreased loading (P = 0.045), but no significant difference was observed for the SLR (P = 0.13). Similarly, the effect of the BWS was measured on the unload response, i.e., the depression in soleus activity following a plantar-flexion perturbation ( approximately 5.6 degrees, 203-247 degrees/s), quantified over a 50 ms analysis window. The unload response decreased with decreased load (P > 0.001), but was not significantly affected (P = 0.45) by tizanidine induced depression of the MLR (P = 0.039, n = 6). Since tizanidine is believed to depress the group II afferent pathway, these results are consistent with the idea that force-related afferent feedback contributes both to the background locomotor activity and to the medium latency stretch reflex. In contrast, length-related afferent feedback may contribute to only the medium latency stretch reflex.

Among nonsmokers, the peak concentration (C(max)) and area under concentration-time curve from 0 to infinity [AUC(0-infinity)] of tizanidine did not differ significantly between females and males. However, the half-life (t(1/2)) was 9% shorter in female nonsmokers than in male nonsmokers (P < 0.05). In male smokers, the t(1/2) was 10% shorter and the weight-adjusted AUC(0-infinity) 33% smaller than in male nonsmokers (P < 0.05). The caffeine/paraxanthine ratio was 35-40% smaller (P = 0.001) in male smokers than in nonsmoking males or females, but did not differ between males and females. Tizanidine lowered blood pressure and caused drowsiness significantly (P < 0.05) more in females than in either male groups. The effects on blood pressure were smallest in male smokers (P < 0.05).

Tizanidine is an imidazoline with central alpha(2)-adrenoceptor agonist activity at both spinal and supraspinal levels, which is indicated as a short-acting drug for the management of spasticity. Despite being used in pediatric populations, there is no adequate information or well controlled studies to document the safety and efficacy of tizanidine in this group.

Rifampicin moderately decreases the plasma concentrations of tizanidine. The strong inducing effects of rifampicin on other CYP enzymes, e.g. CYP3A4, may have contributed to the findings, and the inducibility of CYP1A2-mediated presystemic (tizanidine) and systemic (tizanidine, caffeine) metabolism by rifampicin is weak at the most. Compared to CYP3A4 substrate drugs, substrates of CYP1A2 are much less susceptible to drug interactions caused by enzyme inducers of the rifampicin type.

We report a case of delirium accompanied by extrapyramidal symptoms and autonomic dysfunction in a 59-year-old man following abrupt cessation of baclofen and tizanidine. An extensive search for the etiology was undertaken, but it was only after a careful history was taken that suspicion for baclofen and tizanidine withdrawal was raised. The delirium and motor disturbances resolved within 24 h of reintroduction of baclofen. Withdrawal from muscle relaxants requires a high index of suspicion but should be considered in patients who manifest signs and symptoms of withdrawal from the medications, particularly visual hallucinations, rigidity and autonomic dysfunction.

Spasticity is a common problem in paediatric neurology and its management constitutes a real professional challenge. There are numerous therapeutic options available and their advantages and disadvantages should be carefully weighed up for each individual patient. It is true that we do not have one single final option, but experience and knowledge of the therapeutic possibilities favour the functional improvement of patients suffering from spasticity. In this paper, we analyse the different drugs available for oral administration in the treatment of spasticity. Special attention is given to the side effects and interactions of these drugs in multiple deficiency patients, who are usually already receiving other medication. We review the mechanism of action, the forms of presentation and dosage, the side effects and interactions of baclofen, diazepam, clonidine, tizanidine, modafilin, gabapentin and dantrolene. Finally, other drugs that may be useful in improving spasticity are also analysed.

Comparator studies that assess treatment effects in a clinical setting have improved the understanding of the efficacy and tolerability of prophylactic treatments for chronic migraine (CM). It is premature to recommend device-based treatments, such as occipital nerve stimulation, vagal nerve stimulation, and patent foramen ovale closure for CM, because clinical trials are in the preliminary stages. Physical therapy techniques, like applying heat or cold packs, ultrasonography, and electrical stimulation, have been shown to lessen pain. Nonpharmacologic treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy, stress management, and biofeedback, have been investigated and proved effective in some areas of pain management, including migraine. However, pharmacologic interventions may be necessary for effective, long-term prophylaxis. Several medications under investigation, including topiramate, gabapentin, tizanidine, and amitriptyline, have proved efficacious in reducing the number of migraine episodes and the pain associated with migraine, although adverse events may prevent continued use of some agents. Evidence supports the use of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) for CM, with or without medication overuse, to achieve a significant reduction in headache episodes. Efficacy of BoNT-A for CM is comparable with or better than that of valproate and topiramate, with better tolerability. Predictors of response to BoNT-A for CM appear to include predominantly unilateral location of the headache and the presence of cutaneous or muscle allodynia. BoNT-A has been demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated, with rare discontinuations due to adverse events. Recent clinical trials indicate that rational combination therapy may have a place in treating refractory CM. Well-controlled multicenter trials are awaited.

Dysfunction of nervous system plays the main role in this pain syndrome. The efficacy of the drugs in the early/late recovery period was estimated as follows: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs - 33%/12%, amitriptyline - 24%/42%, gabapentin - 10%/13%, lidocaine - 95%/100%, tizanidine - 29%/33%. Seventy-six percent of patients were free of pain after treatment using a regimen suggested by the authors.

At baseline, lower average pain score in the non-ITB group was the only significant difference between the 2 groups. A significant reduction buy zanaflex in pain scores, Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS), Spasm Frequency Scale, and requirement for oral spasticity medications was observed within the ITB group at early and late follow-up. Within the non-ITB group, there was a significant increase in MAS scores between baseline and late follow-up. A statistically significant difference favoring the ITB group was observed for change in MAS score (P < .0001), Numerical Rating Scale pain score (P = .04), dose of oral baclofen (P = .002) and tizanidine (P = .003), and number of oral medications for spasticity (P = .002). There was no difference between the 2 groups in the progression of hip flexor weakness or in the proportion of patients who became nonambulatory.

To conduct a meta-analysis of the antispastic efficacy and tolerability of tizanidine, we reviewed records of the European sponsor of tizanidine trials and selected double-blind, randomized studies of moderate duration in which oral tizanidine was compared with baclofen or diazepam. Studies were required to have individual patient data; three key outcome measures (Ashworth Rating Scale for muscle tone, a measure of muscle strength, and Global Tolerability to Treatment Rating); and patients with multiple sclerosis or cerebrovascular lesions. Ten trials involving 270 patients met these criteria. Seven studies used baclofen as the positive control; three used diazepam. As measured by Total and Lower Body Ashworth scores, tizanidine and similar spasticity-reducing effects to both baclofen and diazepam. Muscle strength was affected less by tizanidine than by either comparator, and investigators judged tizanidine to have greater tolerability. Within the limits of these comparisons, tizanidine, baclofen, and diazepam were equally effective in buy zanaflex decreasing excessive muscle tone in patients with multiple sclerosis or cerebrovascular lesions. Muscle strength improved in all three treatment groups, but improvement was greatest with tizanidine.

Case reports suggest that cranberry juice can increase the buy zanaflex anticoagulant effect of warfarin. We investigated the effects of cranberry juice on R-S-warfarin, tizanidine, and midazolam; probes of CYP2C9, CYP1A2, and CYP3A4. Ten healthy volunteers took 200 ml cranberry juice or water t.i.d. for 10 days. On day 5, they ingested 10 mg racemic R-S-warfarin, 1 mg tizanidine, and 0.5 mg midazolam, with juice or water, followed by monitoring of drug concentrations and thromboplastin time. Cranberry juice did not increase the peak plasma concentration or area under concentration-time curve (AUC) of the probe drugs or their metabolites, but slightly decreased (7%; P=0.051) the AUC of S-warfarin. Cranberry juice did not change the anticoagulant effect of warfarin. Daily ingestion of cranberry juice does not inhibit the activities of CYP2C9, CYP1A2, or CYP3A4. A pharmacokinetic mechanism for the cranberry juice-warfarin interaction seems unlikely.

Chronic tension type headache (CTTH) has a strong impact on the Quality Of Life (QOL). We carried out an open-label randomized clinical trial on 18 patients with buy zanaflex CTTH in order to compare two different regimens of pharmacological prophylaxis: the first provided for the use of amitriptyline 20 mg/d during 3 months, while in the second we combined amitriptyline with tizanidine (4 mg/d) in the first 3 weeks of treatment. Our hypothesis is that the combination therapy may guarantee an improvement of QOL even in the early stages of treatment. In fact, it's as well-known, there is a delay of 2-3 weeks in the prophylactic effect of amitriptyline, with a consequent persistence, in the first phases of therapy, of the headache and its negative impact. We assessed the following outcome measures: frequency, pain intensity, duration of headache and the Headache Impact Test (HIT) score, used as headache-related QOL measure. The combination therapy was effective since the first month of treatment, with a significant reduction of the headache, greater than one obtained with amitriptyline alone, in terms of frequency (-52.3% vs. -40.7%), intensity (-59.51% vs. -20.39%) and duration (-53.17% vs. -36.16%). This trend was confirmed by the HIT. Our data suggest that the combination of tizanidine with amitriptyline is faster than the amitriptyline alone in providing an improvement in the headache pattern and correlated QOL.

In the treatment of patients with problematic spasticity, it is important to consider the following steps: 1. Establish the functional impact of the spasticity. 2. Identify the functional goal to be achieved by treatment. 3. Eliminate any remediable spasticity aggravating factors. 4. Evaluate the effects of previous antispasticity treatments. 5. Consider nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic treatments. 6. Initiate therapy with a low dosage, and titrate buy zanaflex judiciously. 7. Stop the titration when functional goal is achieved. 8. If goal is not achieved or if side effects are intolerable, consider a second medication.

Effects of drugs affecting the central nervous system on the spinal reflexes and the descending modulations of the reflexes were simultaneously evaluated in rats. Mono- and polysynaptic reflexes were, respectively, increased and decreased by conditioning stimulation of the nucleus raphe in the medulla, with a deflection in resting dorsal root buy zanaflex potential being evoked by the stimulation. Baclofen exclusively depressed the segmental responses without affecting the descending modulatory systems. On the other hand, KW-6629 (7-chloro-N,N,3-trimethylbenzo[b]furan-2-carboxamide) significantly depressed the descending modulations without affecting the segmental responses which were sensitive to baclofen. Diazepam and suriclone reduced the descending influence without affecting the ventral root reflexes. Tolperisone and chlorphenesin carbamate as well as tizanidine depressed not only the segmental reflexes but also the descending modulations. Thus, sites of drug actions were estimated.

The analysis of treatment effectiveness was carried out in 138 patients with tension headache. Patients of group 1 received fluoxetine in dose 20-40 mg/day during not less than 3 months and tizanidini in dose 4-8 mg/day during not less than 2 weeks. Patients of group 2 were assigned to therapeutic blockades of the occipital nerve and trigger points of cervico-cranial area using local anesthetics ( buy zanaflex 2.5 ml of 0.5% marcain solution and 0.5-1 ml dexazone, for 1-5 blockades course) and needle reflexotherapy. The further treatment was based on the decision of the necessity of using analogous drugs in dose regime. Effectiveness was assessed on the basis of clinical neuroorthopedical examination, scores on the Visual Analogous Scale and questionnaires of McGill and A.M. Vein. The inclusion of therapeutic blockades of the cervical zone and reflexotherapy increased the effectiveness of the treatment and minimized the use of drugs. In group 2, the amount of analgesics was decreased by more than 60%, central myorelaxants were prescribed in 34.8% of cases and antidepressants - in 19.1%. The decrease of daily and course doses of the drugs allowed to completely avoid the side-effects.

Centrally acting alpha-2 adrenergic agonists are one of several pharmacologic agents used in the treatment of spasticity related to disorders of the central nervous system. In addition to their effects on spasticity, certain adverse cardiorespiratory effects have been reported. Adults chronically treated with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors may have a limited ability to respond to hypotension when the sympathetic response is simultaneously blocked. The authors present a 10-year buy zanaflex -old boy chronically treated with lisinopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, to control hypertension who developed hypotension following the addition of tizanidine, an alpha-2 agonist, for the treatment of spasticity. The possible interaction of tizanidine and other antihypertensive agents should be kept in mind when prescribing therapy to treat either hypertension or spasticity in such patients.

Among nonsmokers, the peak concentration (C(max)) and area under concentration-time curve from 0 to infinity [AUC(0-infinity)] of tizanidine did not differ significantly between females and males. However, the half-life (t(1/2)) was 9% shorter in female nonsmokers than in male nonsmokers (P < 0.05). In male smokers, the t(1/2) was 10% shorter and the weight-adjusted AUC(0-infinity) 33% smaller than in male nonsmokers (P < 0.05). buy zanaflex The caffeine/paraxanthine ratio was 35-40% smaller (P = 0.001) in male smokers than in nonsmoking males or females, but did not differ between males and females. Tizanidine lowered blood pressure and caused drowsiness significantly (P < 0.05) more in females than in either male groups. The effects on blood pressure were smallest in male smokers (P < 0.05).

Tizanidine [5-chloro-4-(2-imidazolin-2-yl-amino)-2,1,3-benzothiadiazole] is able to increase the pain threshold in the tail-flick test in mice. The effect of tizanidine was investigated after treatment of mice with drugs influencing central monoaminergic and GABAergic mechanisms. A drug that inhibits the synthesis and storage of monoamines and drugs that cause specific lesions of monoaminergic neurons had no consistent effect on the antinociceptive Zyrtec Tablet Dosage action of tizanidine. The action of tizanidine was antagonized by the alpha 2-adrenoreceptor antagonist, yohimbine, but not by the alpha 1 antagonist prazosin, nor by dopamine, serotonin and GABA receptor antagonists. These results indicate that the antinociceptive action induced by tizanidine may be mediated by alpha 2-adrenoreceptors.

Spasticity and other muscle symptoms in the palliative care patient can contribute to suffering, significantly detracting from overall quality of life. Current therapy primarily includes use of centrally acting muscle Cipro 750 Dosage relaxants, which are beneficial in treating some symptoms, but frequently have extensive side effects, such as sedation and muscle weakness. Tizanidine, a central alpha 2 adrenergic agonist, has been shown in clinical studies to be as effective as other commonly used antispastic agents, but without debilitating muscle weakness. Tizanidine can cause sedation, which is minimized by dose titration. When taken at night, patients report improvement in getting to sleep and little drowsiness or "hangover sensation" upon waking. Tizanidine is potentially helpful to many palliative care patients with chronic muscle pain and sleep disturbances.

Skeletal muscle relaxants are a heterogeneous group of medications used to treat two different types of underlying conditions: spasticity from upper motor neuron syndromes and muscular pain or spasms from peripheral musculoskeletal conditions. Although widely used for these indications, there appear to be gaps in our understanding of the comparative efficacy and safety of different skeletal muscle relaxants. This systematic review summarizes and assesses the evidence for the comparative efficacy and safety of skeletal muscle relaxants for spasticity and musculoskeletal conditions. Randomized trials (for comparative efficacy and adverse events) and observational studies (for adverse events only) that included oral medications classified as skeletal muscle relaxants by the FDA were sought using electronic databases, reference lists, and pharmaceutical company submissions. Searches were performed through January 2003. The validity of each included study was assessed using a data abstraction form and predefined criteria. An overall grade was allocated for the body of evidence for each key question. A total of 101 randomized trials were included in this review. No randomized trial was rated good quality, and there was little evidence of rigorous adverse event assessment in included trials or observational studies. There is fair evidence that baclofen, tizanidine, and dantrolene are effective compared to placebo in patients with spasticity (primarily multiple sclerosis). There is fair evidence that baclofen and tizanidine are roughly equivalent for efficacy in patients with spasticity, but insufficient evidence to determine the efficacy of dantrolene compared to baclofen or tizanidine. There is fair evidence that although the overall rate of adverse effects between tizanidine and baclofen is similar, tizanidine is associated with more dry mouth and baclofen Sporanox Pulse Reviews with more weakness. There is fair evidence that cyclobenzaprine, carisoprodol, orphenadrine, and tizanidine are effective compared to placebo in patients with musculoskeletal conditions (primarily acute back or neck pain). Cyclobenzaprine has been evaluated in the most clinical trials and has consistently been found to be effective. There is very limited or inconsistent data regarding the effectiveness of metaxalone, methocarbamol, chlorzoxazone, baclofen, or dantrolene compared to placebo in patients with musculoskeletal conditions. There is insufficient evidence to determine the relative efficacy or safety of cyclobenzaprine, carisoprodol, orphenadrine, tizanidine, metaxalone, methocarbamol, and chlorzoxazone. Dantrolene, and to a lesser degree chlorzoxazone, have been associated with rare serious hepatotoxicity.

Spasticity is a common disabling feature of multiple sderosis. A variety of drugs are in regular use as oral treatment induding badofen, dantrolene, tizanidine, and diazepam. Published evidence of effectiveness is limited. Most trials are of small size, of short duration, and have not reported on functional outcomes. Studies have been published which suggest that badofen, tizanidine, and diazepam are all effective in reducing dinical measures of spasticity, but there is little evidence that they lead to an improvement in patient function. There is no evidence to suggest any difference in effectiveness between them. The evidence that dantrolene has any effect on spasticity is of poor quality. Diazepam and dantrolene are associated with more side effects than baclofen and tizanidine. There is evidence for the effectiveness of gabapentin in reducing spasticity and improving Cytoxan Chemo Drug function in the short term, though longer-term studies are needed to establish its true value. One randomized controlled trial of threonine does not support its effectiveness.

The alpha 2-agonist tizanidine, clinically used as an antispastic drug, also strongly reduces polysynaptic flexor reflexes. The hypothesis was tested that the noradrenergic coerulespinal system exerts a tonic facilitation on spinal reflexes and that the depressant effects of tizanidine may be explained by an alpha 2-mediated autoinhibition of the tonic activity of locus coeruleus neurons, resulting in a disfacilitation of the spinal reflexes. The following results support this working hypothesis: (1) systemic injections of tizanidine markedly decreased the spontaneous activity of locus coeruleus neurons, but not of non-locus coeruleus neurons. The alpha 2-antagonist yohimbine reversed this effect. (2) The time course of diminished locus coeruleus activity paralleled that of depressed flexor reflexes. (3) Flexor reflexes were also markedly depressed by the alpha 1-adrenergic antagonist prazosin, administered alone, which is in line with the proposition that the noradrenergic system exerts a tonic facilitation on spinal neurons by way of alpha 1-adrenergic receptor activation. (4) Flexor reflexes were facilitated by conditioning microstimulation of locus coeruleus neurons, and this effect was reversed by prazosin. (5) Flexor reflexes significantly diminished in size following placement of an irreversible lesion in the ipsilateral locus coeruleus. Although these results strongly support the above hypothesis regarding a descending modulatory function of the descending locus coeruleus system on spinal reflexes, possible Abilify Generic Reviews additional mechanisms, perhaps also involving the ascending projection of the locus coeruleus to supraspinal motor structures, remain to be elucidated.
