Discussions that mention morphine

I could never take Zanaflex except before bed.It would always knock me out for a few hours.

Sometimes it's the combination of both meds still in your system even though zanaflex doesnt last 12 hrs you still could experience drowsiness the next morning.

When i switched to morphine i could no longer take ambien at night because i would be too tired to drive safely in the morning.
the morphine never made me drowsy when i took it but 8-10 hrs after taking ambien (which only lasts a few hrs) i was nodding off the next morning.It was the combination of the 2 meds in my system even though my serum levels should have been low for both meds in the morning.

you may find stopping zanaflex will help.Its worth a try for a few days.
