        I bite my 2 mg pills in half during the day with bachlophen and take a whole 2mg pill at night with bachlophen. Ive also learned that I cant take a zanaflex or bachlophen before eating or my bp will floor and I will feel like fainting. so if I'm eating a meal, I always take pills after.

        if I am not having tight spasms I dont take a zanaflex. vjls, take a small amount and play it by ear. don't overdo yourself, you should notice a difference within 20 minutes of taking the zanaflex. CKF has good advice.

            I was taking Zanaflex and it made my heart rate to low, like low 30s, I was in the hospital at the time and they had a real hard time waking me. It was kind of scary waking up with eight people standing around the bed

                Very interesting information for me. I tried Zanaflex recently and did not do well on it. And my treating physician and I determined I would go back on another medication. My husband was out of town and actually was like "honey how much wine have you had tonight?" Your speech is slurred and you sound drunk. FYI I was not drinking nor was I on call. I did not even think to check my heart rate and blood pressure until the next morning. I just knew I was dizzy, and of course his comment..... I think this is one to look up in the medical journals and also look at the prescribing information on my iPad.

                  Every person responds differently to a medication, which is why dozens of potential side effects are listed for every med - each one happened to at least one person.
