Zanaflex 2 mg Capsules

Zanaflex® (tizanidine hydrochloride) is a prescription drug approved for the treatment of spasticity in people with multiple sclerosis, spinal injury, or other illnesses. It is a short-acting medication that does not provide around-the-clock relief, since each dose lasts only for three to six hours. The medication comes in the following strengths and forms:
 
  • Zanaflex 2 mg capsules
  • Zanaflex 4 mg capsules and tablets
  • Zanaflex 6 mg capsules.
     
For treating spasticity, the usual starting dosage is 4 mg every six to eight hours as needed, up to a maximum of three doses per 24 hours. Your healthcare provider may gradually increase this amount as needed.
