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.

Following 4 weeks of treatment when subjects reached their maximal tolerated dosage, the average LE Ashworth score on the affected side decreased from 2.3 +/- 1.4 to 1.7 +/- 1.1 (p <.0001). The spasm score decreased from 1.0 +/- 0.9 to 0.5 +/- 0.8 (p =.0464), while the reflex score was not statistically significant decreasing from 2.2 +/- 1.0 to 2.0 +/- 1.1 (p =.0883). The average UE Ashworth score on the affected side decreased from 1.9 +/- 1.1 to 1.5 +/- 0.9 (p <.0001). There was no significant change in the UE spasm and reflex scores. While there were positive placebo effects on motor tone, the active drug was still significantly better than placebo for decreasing LE tone (p =.0006) and UE tone (p =.0007). With a reduction in motor tone, there was an increase in motor strength (p =.0089). The average dosage at 4 weeks was 25.2mg/d.

Twenty-three placebo-controlled studies (using baclofen, dantrolene, tizanidine, botulinum toxin, vigabatrin, prazepam and threonine) and thirteen comparative studies met the selection criteria. Only thirteen of these studies used the Ashworth scale, of which only three of the six placebo-controlled trials and none of the seven comparative studies showed a statistically significant difference between test drugs. Spasms, other symptoms and overall impressions were only assessed using unvalidated scores and results of functional assessments were inconclusive.

Among 3444 administered courses of clarithromycin, erythromycin, azithromycin, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, or moxifloxacin, there were 1332 (38.7 %) with concomitant use of additional QT-prolonging drugs. Among those, we identified seven cases of drug-related QT prolongation, but 49.1 % had no ECG monitoring. Of all MQAB users, 547 (15.9 %) had hypokalemia. Forty-four MQAB users had contraindicated co-administrations of simvastatin, atorvastatin, or tizanidine and three of those related adverse drug reactions.

Variations in four electrophysiological tests (H/M, T/M, vibratory inhibition, and recovery curve of Hoffmann's reflex following stimulation at the ankle) were studied following a single administration of four myorelaxant drugs: diazepam (10 mg intramuscularly), baclofen (20 mg intramuscularly), tizanidine (4 mg orally), and idrocilamide (60 mg intramuscularly). Fifty-one spastic patients, divided into four groups, were tested. All four drugs reduced the H/M and T/M ratios very slightly. Only diazepam and tizanidine reinforced vibratory inhibition. Diazepam and tizanidine did not modify the abnormal recovery curves, however, whereas baclofen and idrocilamide did. Reinforcement of vibratory inhibition suggests an increase in presynaptic inhibition mediated by gamma-aminobutyric acid; changes in recovery curves are likely due to modifications of interneuronal reactivity. Matching myorelaxants to the predominant pathophysiological abnormality detected by electrophysiological exploration may lead to better treatment of spasticity.

We included double-blind, randomised controlled trials in which the active drug was used either alone or in combination with other non-antiepileptic drugs for at least two weeks.

The evidence supports the use of baclofen, tizanidine and gabapentin as first-line options. Diazepam or dantrolene could be considered if no clinical improvement is seen with the previous drugs. Nabiximols has a positive effect when used as add-on therapy in patients with poor response and/or tolerance to first-line oral treatments. Despite limited evidence, intrathecal baclofen and intrathecal phenol show a positive effect in severe spasticity and suboptimal response to oral drugs.

Spontaneous hemopericardium is a complication of anticoagulant therapy with not only vitamin-K-antagonists, but also with nonvitamin-K-antagonist oral anticoagulants. We report a polymorbid 75-year old male under a therapy with dabigatran, valsartan, amlodipine, nicorandil, furosemide, atorvastatin, bisoprolol, metformin, tizanidine, pantoprazole, and tramadol. He suffered from chest pain for 4 months. Coronary angiography showed only ectatic coronary arteries. He started taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. He was hospitalized because of dyspnea starting 10 days before admission, melena, and renal failure. Hemopericardium was diagnosed and pericardiocentesis yielded 2000 ml hemorrhagic fluid. Review of previous echocardiograms showed a 4 mm echo-free space, epicardial fat or pericardial effusion. A small (<10 mm) echo-free space in a patient on anticoagulant therapy should not be considered as trivial, but additional imaging studies should be carried out. If a pericardial effusion is newly diagnosed in a patient during anticoagulant therapy, the pharmacotherapy should be revised concerning potentially interacting drugs, like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and dosage of the anticoagulant drug. Vitamin-K-antagonists with their possibility of laboratory monitoring and availability of an antidote should be preferred over nonvitamin-K-antagonist oral anticoagulants.

zanaflex medication

Spasticity is common in patients with a variety of central nervous system disorders. It can lead to significant disability or cause complications that may result in severe morbidity. In such patients, treatment of spasticity is warranted. Several oral and parenteral medications are available for use in the treatment of spasticity. This article reviews the pharmacological properties and therapeutic effectiveness of these medications to provide a practical objective guide for physicians who may be involved in the management of spasticity.

Цель исследования — отработка и фармакологическая валидизация реакции Штрауба для сравнительной оценки антиспастического эффекта серотонинергических соединений. Материал и методы. Для оценки миорелаксантной активности соединений была использована реакция Штрауба. Ее интенсивность оценивали по модифицированной шкале, предложенной Kameyama и соавт. (1978). Подкожное введение морфина (10—60 мг/кг) оказывало дозозависимое влияние на интенсивность реакции Штрауба с максимальной выраженностью через 15—30 мин после инъекции. Результаты и заключение. Миорелаксант центрального действия — баклофен (3—10 мг/кг) уменьшал выраженность реакции Штрауба, вызванной введением морфина в дозе 40 мг/кг, во всех использованных дозах; тизанидин статистически значимо снижал интенсивность реакции в максимальных из использованных доз (0,6 и 1,0 мг/кг). Не было обнаружено значимого эффекта дантролена в диапазоне использованных доз (20—100 мг/кг). Эффекты серотонинергических соединений зависели от их специфических механизмов действия. Результаты выполненных экспериментов подтверждают возможность использования реакции Штрауба для быстрой оценки антиспастического действия веществ.

The technique of polarised light goniometry was used to quantify objectively parameters of the spastic gait during a double-blind cross-over trial comparing the spasmolytic effects of DS103-282, baclofen and placebo. Only minimal objective and subjective changes in gait were found when the results of treatment with DS103-282 or baclofen were compared with those of treatment with placebo.

Rifampicin moderately reduced the peak plasma concentration (by 51%; P = 0.002) and area under the plasma concentration-time curve [AUC(0-infinity)] (by 54%; P = 0.009) of parent tizanidine, and had no effect on its half-life. The tizanidine/M-3 and tizanidine/M-4 AUC(0-infinity) ratios were slightly (by 30%; P = 0.014; and by 38%; P = 0.007) decreased by rifampicin. Also, the excretion of metabolites M-3, M-4 and M-5 into urine was reduced (P < 0.005), but that of M-10 was increased (P = 0.008) by rifampicin. Rifampicin reduced the tizanidine/M-10 ratio (by 55%; P = 0.047) but had no significant effect on the other tizanidine/metabolite ratios in urine. The caffeine/paraxanthine ratio was reduced by 23% (P = 0.081) by rifampicin. The effect of rifampicin on the caffeine/paraxanthine ratio correlated significantly with the effect of rifampicin on, for example, the AUC(0-infinity) of tizanidine and the tizanidine/M-3 AUC(0-infinity) ratio. The pharmacodynamic effects of tizanidine were reduced by rifampicin.

Noradrenergic drugs, acting on alpha adrenoceptors, have been found to play an important role in the initiation and modulation of locomotor pattern in adult cats after spinal cord transection. There are at least two subtypes of alpha adrenoceptors, alpha1 and alpha2 adrenoceptors. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of selective alpha1 and alpha2 agonists in the initiation and modulation of locomotion in adult chronic cats in the early and late stages after complete transection at T13. Five cats, chronically implanted with an intrathecal cannula and electromyographic (EMG) electrodes were used in this study. Noradrenergic drugs including alpha2 agonists (clonidine, tizanidine, and oxymetazoline) and an antagonist, yohimbine, one alpha1 agonist (methoxamine), and a blocker, prazosin, as well as norepinephrine were injected intrathecally. EMG activity synchronized to video images of the hindlimbs were recorded before and after each drug injection. The results show differential effects of alpha1 and alpha2 agonists in the initiation of locomotion in early spinal cats (i.e., in the first week or so when there is no spontaneous locomotion) and in the modulation of locomotion and cutaneous reflexes in the late-spinal cats (i.e., when cats have recovered spontaneous locomotion). In early spinal cats, all three alpha2 agonists were found to initiate locomotion, although their action had a different time course. The alpha1 agonist methoxamine induced bouts of nice locomotor activity in three spinal cats some hours after injection but only induced sustained locomotion in one cat in which the effects were blocked by the alpha1 antagonist prazosin. In late spinal cats, although alpha2 agonists markedly increased the cycle duration and flexor muscle burst duration and decreased the weight support or extensor activity (effects blocked by an alpha2 antagonist, yohimbine), alpha1 agonist increased the weight support and primarily the extensor activity of the hindlimbs without markedly changing the timing of the step cycle. Although alpha2 agonists, especially clonidine, markedly reduced the cutaneous excitability and augmented the foot drag, the alpha1 agonist was found to increase the cutaneous reflex excitability. This is in line with previously reported differential effects of activation of the two receptors on motoneuron excitability and reflex transmission. Noradrenaline, the neurotransmitter itself, increased the cycle duration and at the same time retained the cutaneous excitability, thus exerting both alpha1 and alpha2 effects. This work therefore suggests that different subclasses of noradrenergic drugs could be used to more specifically target aspects of locomotor deficits in patients after spinal injury or diseases.

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).

Studies were performed on 126 patients with chronic tension headache (CTH). Patients were divided into two groups - an experimental group (64 patients) and a control group (62). Control patients received standard treatment (tizanidine, fluoxetine, vinpocetin, and manual acupressure of active points in the trapezius muscles and the temporomastoid area of the head); the experimental group also received Mexidol. Clinical and neurophysiological studies, including electromyography, were performed before and after treatment. Comparison of the treatment outcomes in the two groups showed that inclusion of Mexidol into the complex therapy of chronic CTH led to faster and more marked clinical effects.

The effects of tizanidine, a new muscle relaxant, 5-chloro-4-(2-imidazolin-2-yl-amino)-2,1,3-benzothiazole (DS 103-282) were studied on the activity of lumbar dorsal horn convergent neurons in anaesthetized paralysed rats. Following i.v. administration of tizanidine both the A- and C-fibre evoked responses were depressed in a dose-dependent manner in the 0.125-1.0 mg/kg range. The smaller dose employed (0.125 mg/kg) induced a significant depression of the C-fibre evoked responses (39.6 +/- 13.4% of the control responses) and a total recovery was observed 10 min after the injection: when the doses were increased, stronger and longer-lasting depressant effects were obtained. Identical but less powerful effects were observed on A-fibre responses. None of the depressive effects was correlated with variations in blood pressure. Microelectrophoretically applied tizanidine was found to depress current-dependently, the discharges of convergent neurones evoked by microelectrophoretically applied DL-homocysteic acid. In contrast, tizanidine (0.5, 1 mg/kg; i.v.) was found to be ineffective against the activities of non-nociceptive neurones triggered by mechanical stimulation of their receptive fields. It is concluded that tizanidine depresses specifically the activities of dorsal horn convergent neurones, probably in part by a post-synaptic inhibitory action. Owing to the role of convergent neurones in pain processes, the present result could explain, at least partially, the analgesic action of this compound.

The intrathecal alpha2-adrenergic agonist, clonidine, has been buy zanaflex online shown to have considerable antinociceptive effect, although clonidine causes hypotension and bradycardia. The combination of intrathecal clonidine and local anesthetics enhances analgesic effects, whereas the combination may cause marked hypotension and motor blockade, which may limit the clinical application of the combination. Tizanidine, another alpha2-adrenergic agonist, has also provided antinociception without producing pronounced hemodynamic changes. This study was designed to evaluate the antinociceptive and hemodynamic interactions of tizanidine and clonidine with lidocaine.

Spasticity is a frequent and often disabling symptom in MS patients. Current drugs used as antispastic agents include Dantrolene Sodium, Baclofen and Diazepam. Tizanidine (5-chloro-4-(2imidazolin-2 yl amino)-2,1,3-benzothialdiazole) is a new antispasticity agent that has purported central action. A double blind placebo controlled trial was performed to study the efficacy of this drug in MS patients. Sixty-six patients entered an eight week therapeutic trial and fifty-nine Aciphex Overdose Symptoms completed the trial. Patients were assessed at 0, 2, 3 and 8 weeks of therapy for clinical effects. Electrophysiologic tests were performed at 0 and 8 weeks. A statistically significant benefit was noted in spastic muscle groups in the legs with concomitant significant reduction in hyperactive stretch reflexes and ankle clonus. Side effects most frequently cited included dry mouth and drowsiness. Two patients developed elevated liver function test that decreased with cessation of therapy. Other clinical details, side effects and electrophysiologic data will be presented. Tizanidine appears to reduce clinical spasticity and hyperreflexia in MS patients although no change in functional status was detected. Tizanidine may well serve as an alternate antispastic agent, alone or in combination with other agents.

The α 2-adrenergic receptor agonist clonidine has been shown to inhibit citric acid-induced cough responses in guinea pigs when administered by aerosol Duricef Pediatric Dosage , but not orally. In contrast, oral or inhaled clonidine had no effect on capsaicin-induced cough and reflex bronchoconstriction in humans. In addition, intravenous administration of clonidine has been shown to depress fentanyl-induced cough in humans. We investigated the effects of the α 2-adrenergic receptor agonists, clonidine and tizanidine, on cough responses induced by mechanical and chemical (citric acid) stimulation of the tracheobronchial tree. Drugs were microinjected (30-50 nL) into the caudal nucleus tractus solitarii (cNTS) and the caudal ventral respiratory group (cVRG) as well as administered intravenously in pentobarbital sodium-anesthetized, spontaneously breathing rabbits. Bilateral microinjections of clonidine into the cNTS or the cVRG reduced cough responses at 0.5 mmol/L and abolished the cough reflex at 5 mmol/L. Bilateral microinjections of 0.5 mmol/L tizanidine into the cNTS completely suppressed cough responses, whereas bilateral microinjections of 5 mmol/L into the cVRG only caused mild reductions in them. Depressant effects on the cough reflex of clonidine and tizanidine were completely reverted by microinjections of 10 mmol/L yohimbine. Intravenous administration of clonidine (80-120 μg/kg) or tizanidine (150-300 μg/kg) strongly reduced or completely suppressed cough responses. These effects were reverted by intravenous administration of yohimbine (300 μg/kg). The results demonstrate that activation of α 2-adrenergic receptors in the rabbit exerts potent inhibitory effects on the central mechanism generating the cough motor pattern with a clear action at the level of the cNTS and the cVRG.

Centrally acting alpha-2 adrenergic agonists are one of several pharmacologic agents used in the treatment of spasticity related to disorders of the central Flomax Overdose 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-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.

Bronchopulmonary paecilomycosis resulting from primary and secondary infection with fungi of Aldactone Order the Paecilomyces genus was clinically manifested as chronic obstructive bronchitis (11.5%), recurrent pneumonia (13.5%), exogenous allergic alveolitis (37%), and asthma (26%) complicated by helminthiasis (12%). Iodine deficiency promotes the prevalence of paecilomycosis and echinococcosis favors Paecilomycosis infection; moreover, the helminth capsule itself serves as a nutrient medium for the development of the mycelial form of the fungus. APAM is a severe complication of PP. Almost 50% of the patients with PP presented with carditis. The patients with APAM occasionally experienced fear and the most severe intermittent pain. The latter first occurred in the chest.and irradiated to the axilla, left hand, and its fingertips, paralyzing the arm. In some patients, the pain manifested itself in both arms with abdominal irradiation, by being accompanied by faints. Current analgesics (meloxicam, tizanidine, nimesulide, morphine, promedole) in combination with fluconazole provided a temporary positive effect.

A total of 113 potentially relevant articles were identified by the search; of these, 54 studies were included in the review (23 randomized controlled trials [RCTs] and 31 open-label, nonrandomized, or observational studies). Of these, 51 involved treatment with botulinum toxin (BTX). All studies assessed spasticity; some also assessed additional outcomes, such as pain, disability, and functional status. Thirty-eight clinical trials reported a significant reduction in spasticity with BTX, either compared with baseline or with placebo (P < 0.05). A head-to-head comparison found a significant reduction Flonase Sensimist Dosage in spasticity with BTX injections compared with oral tizanidine (TZD) (P < 0.001). Two studies of intrathecal baclofen (ITB) reported significant reductions in upper limb spasticity after 12 months of treatment, and 1 study of tizanidine reported significant reductions in upper limb spasticity after 16 weeks of treatment (all, P < 0.001). General or local weakness, injection-site pain, and fatigue were the most frequently reported adverse events with BTX type A, and dry mouth was the most frequently reported adverse event with BTX type B. No serious or life-threatening adverse events were reported in any trial of BTX.

The skeletal muscle relaxant tizanidine is approved by the US FDA and the European Medicines Agency for treating spasticity and is supplied as tablets for oral administration. However, tizanidine has a poor bioavailability, due to extensive first-pass metabolism. Therefore, the nasal route of administration, which bypasses portal circulation, may increase the bioavailability of tizanidine and, possibly, reduce Depakote Overdose Uptodate the time to peak plasma concentration, thereby shorting the latency of therapeutic effect. The objective of this study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of tizanidine nasal spray and compare it to the profile of tizanidine oral tablets.

A 42-year-old female patient with lower back and leg pain, severe flexor reflex responses, and a walking disorder was evaluated. Gabapentin and tizanidine were given to treat the neuropathic pain and flexor reflex responses. An exercise program was applied to improve the walking disorder. Finally, the patient's complaints of pain considerably decreased, flexor reflex responses were reduced, and a more comfortable walking motion was observed.

Based on affinity for WB4101 and susceptibility to chloroethylclonidine, we evaluated the subtype of alpha 1-adrenoceptors activated by phenylephrine (a full agonist) and tizanidine (a partial agonist). The rabbit thoracic aorta and common iliac artery contain both alpha 1A- and alpha 1B-adrenoceptors, but the alpha 1B-subtype may be more predominantly in the common iliac artery than in the thoracic aorta. In rabbit thoracic aorta and common iliac artery, phenylephrine induced contraction through both alpha 1A- and alpha 1B-subtypes and tizanidine through only the alpha 1A-subtype. The subtype activated by phenylephrine may be partly different from that activated by tizanidine in the preparations used herein.

Antinociceptive effects of three centrally acting muscle relaxants, tizanidine, diazepam and eperisone, were studied using an isolated newborn rat spinal cord-tail preparation. Potentials were recorded from a lumbar ventral root (L3-L5) extracellularly using a suction electrode. Pinch stimulation applied to the tail elicited a depolarizing response in the ventral root lasting 15-30 sec, referred to as the tail-pinch potential. Electrical stimulation of the ipsilateral dorsal root of the same segment with a single shock induced depolarizing responses in the ventral root. The responses consisted of monosynaptic and polysynaptic reflexes with a fast time course, followed by a slow depolarizing response lasting about 20 sec. The latter slow response was designated the ipsilateral slow ventral root potential (VRP). Both the tail-pinch potential and the ipsilateral slow VRP were depressed by application to the spinal cord of tizanidine (2-3 microM), diazepam (2 microM) and eperisone (100-200 microM). The effect of tizanidine was reversed by alpha 2-adrenoreceptor antagonists, yohimbine and idazoxan, but not by an alpha 1-antagonist, prazosin. The effect of diazepam was reversed by the benzodiazepine antagonist, flumazenil.

1. The effect of alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists on gastrointestinal motility was assessed in normoglycaemic and streptozotocin-diabetic mice. 2. The alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists used were: clonidine (0.1, 0.3 and 1 mg kg-1, azepexole (10, 20 and 40 mg kg-1), tizanidine (1, 3 and 10 mg kg-1) and ST-91 (10, 20 and 30 mg kg-1). 3. Acute hyperglycaemia was induced by D-(+)-glucose (5 g kg-1) and chronic hyperglycaemia by streptozotocin (200 mg kg-1) injection. 4. The gut motility was quantitated using the charcoal meal test. 5. The results indicate that in normoglycaemic and acutely hyperglycaemic mice, all of the alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists used produced significant inhibition of meal transit. 6. However, in streptozotocin-diabetic mice, the anti-transit effect of alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists was attenuated. 7. Since streptozotocin-induced diabetes but not acute hyperglycaemia was associated with the attenuation of anti-transit effect, elevated blood sugar is not the mechanism for the observed effect. 8. As with groups treated with clonidine, azepexole or tizanidine, the anti-transit effect of a peripherally acting alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonist, ST-91, was attenuated in streptozotocin-diabetic mice. This suggests the involvement of peripheral mechanism(s) in attenuating the anti-transit effect of alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists. 9. These results identify the need for critical evaluation of the role and efficacy of alpha 2-adrenoceptor agonists in the therapeutic management of diabetic diarrhoea.

The effects of a novel imidazoline derivative (tizanidine) on experimental ulcers and glycoproteins in the gastric mucosa and juice of rats were examined and compared with that of clonidine. Tizanidine and clonidine inhibited indomethacin ulcer and aspirin ulcers. Tizanidine, however, did not influence stress ulcer while clonidine showed an inhibitory effect. Although tizanidine and clonidine did not increase glycoproteins in the gastric mucosa, they prevented aspirin-induced changes of glycoproteins in the gastric mucosa and juice, as well as aspirin-induced gastric ulcers. The results suggest that, as with clonidine, tizanidine inhibits drug-induced gastric ulcers and that tizanidine-mediated gastric mucosal protection may prevent gastric ulcers induced by anti-inflammatory agents.
