      I was on it for years, I had some dizziness and it made me tired. Although, it did not work as a muscle relaxant for me. Definitely do not take it if you need to drive or need to pay close attention.

      Tizanidine works very well for me, but it makes me very drowsy. When I first was taking it, my doctor had me start with 1/2 to 1 tablet. Don’t try to drive or do anything complicated while taking it—it can really affect your coordination!

      For me I was on a lower dose. I took half of a pill because a full one would make me feel a little bit loopy, like I’d taken cough medicine or something. It makes me a little drowsy and tired, perfect before bedtime. It might make you dizzy so he sure to have a lot of water with the pill when taking it. I never experienced any issues, it works fantastic, but just be careful about the feeling loopy and dizzy (if that even affects you!)
