Discussions that mention zanaflex

Cerebral Palsy board


Hi,
I figured I'd start this thread because in reading through some of the posts over the last couple of weeks I've noticed a lot of curiosity about the different types of muscle relaxers out there. Please share your experiences.

I've taken baclofen, flexeril, valium and zanaflex for the spasms and tightness associated with my spastic diplegia. In my situation Zanaflex has seemed to work the best. I've taken Blaclofen orally and did not respond well to it. It seemed to make me a little more rigid. Is this common when starting Baclofen? I've heard some really good things about the Baclofen pump and was seriously considering it until I took it orally.

Please share your experiences.

Thanks
Mcard
