Also known as:  Tizanidine.


Generic Zanaflex is an agonist at (alpha) 2-adrenergic receptor sites and presumably reduces spasticity by increasing presynaptic inhibition of motor neurons. In animal models, Generic Zanaflex has no direct effect on skeletal muscle fibers or the neuromuscular junction, and no major effect on monosynaptic spinal reflexes. The effects of Generic Zanaflex are greatest on polysynaptic pathways. The overall effect of these actions is thought to reduce facilitation of spinal motor neurons.

The imidazoline chemical structure of Generic Zanaflex is related to that of the anti-hypertensive drug clonidine and other (alpha) 2 -adrenergic agonists. Pharmacological studies in animals show similarities between the two compounds, but Generic Zanaflex was found to have one-tenth to one-fiftieth (1/50) of the potency of clonidine in lowering blood pressure.

Zanaflex is also known as Tizanidine, Sirdalud.

Generic name of Generic Zanaflex is Tizanidine-Oral.

Brand name of Generic Zanaflex is Zanaflex.


You should take it by mouth.

It usually is taken two or three times a day.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Generic Zanaflex suddenly.


If you overdose Generic Zanaflex and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.


Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

The depressant effect of 5-chloro-4-(2-imidazolin-2-yl-amino)-2,1,3-benzothiodiazole (DS103-282) on the polysynaptic excitation of interneurones in the cat spinal cord appears to be related to a postsynaptic reduction in the effectiveness of excitatory transmitters than to interference with their presynaptic release.

A 43-year-old woman presented with clinical and electrophysiologic features of stiff person syndrome (SPS), without abdominal or lumbar paraspinal muscle involvement. Investigations revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma of the lung with positive anti-Ri antibodies. Her clinical condition improved with diazepam, baclofen, tizanidine, and palliative chemotherapy. Screening for an underlying malignancy and anti-Ri antibodies should be considered in patients with SPS when clinical presentation is atypical.

Recent electrophysiological studies in patients with cranial dystonia (CD) have demonstrated evidence for hyperactivity of brainstem interneurons. Tizanidine (Tz), a centrally acting skeletal muscle relaxant, is thought to act by antagonizing the activity of excitatory interneurons which mediate hypertonic processes (e.g. spasticity). Theoretically this agent may be effective in patients with CD. Ten patients were enrolled in an open-label study with a single-blind placebo wash-in. Eight patients tolerated doses of between 28-36 mg per day. For the most part tizanidine was ineffective for the symptoms of CD. This failure suggests that the reported brainstem interneuronal disturbances may not be altered by Tz. Further studies using concomitant electrophysiological assessment would be necessary to assess this possibility. Alternatively, these disturbances may not be a principle cause of the dystonic movements. The finding of similar changes in other basal ganglia diseases lacking CD (e.g. Parkinson's disease) favours this latter explanation.

A simple, sensitive and rapid high-performance liquid chromatography/positive ion electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) method was developed and validated for the assay of tizanidine in human plasma. Following liquid-liquid extraction, the analytes were separated using an isocratic mobile phase on a reversed-phase column and analyzed by MS/MS in the selected reaction monitoring mode. The assay exhibited a linear dynamic range of 50-5000 pg/mL for tizanidine in human plasma. The lower limit of quantification was 50 pg/mL with a relative standard deviation of less than 13%. Acceptable precision and accuracy were obtained for concentrations over the standard curve range. A run time of 2.5 min for each sample made it possible to analyze more than 300 human plasma samples per day. The validated method has been successfully used to analyze human plasma samples for application in pharmacokinetic, bioavailability or bioequivalence studies.

An analysis of hospital stay between both groups showed a significant difference during the implantation year. The average number of hospital days per patient in the year in the treated group was 31.5 days and in the match group was 18.7 days. Significant cost differences between both groups in the year that started with pump implantation and the following year can be attributed mostly to the costs of implantation of the pump and related hospitalisation days. The total costs of patient selection, testing, implanting the pump and follow-up amounted to $US28,473 for the first year. Savings must be taken into consideration as well. The savings of direct costs were due to withdrawal of oral medication (estimated annual total of between $US1950 and $US2800 per patient). Indirect savings on employment and nursing home costs, amounted annually to $US1047 and $US5814, respectively. Scenarios make it possible to consider policy consequences. The case of 'extending' the indications for this treatment to a larger population has been calculated and visualised.

Some macrolide and quinolone antibiotics (MQABs) are associated with QT prolongation and life-threatening torsade de pointes (TdP) arrhythmia. MQAB may also inhibit cytochrome P450 isoenzymes and thereby cause pharmacokinetic drug interactions (DDIs). There is limited data on the frequency and management of such risks in clinical practice. We aimed to quantify co-administration of MQAB with interacting drugs and associated adverse drug reactions.

Microinjection of tizanidine into the substantia nigra pars reticulata or entopeduncular nucleus reduces muscle tone in genetically spastic rats. The effect of tizanidine is related to alpha 2-adrenergic mechanism since yohimbine, an alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist, and not prazosin, an alpha 1-adrenergic antagonist, attenuates the muscle relaxation produced by the drug. These results signify basal ganglia output stations as possible sites whereby tizanidine acting via alpha 2-adrenergic mechanism exerts its muscle relaxant action.

Forty patients scheduled to undergo epidural anesthesia in elective surgery were randomly allocated into two groups. The control group received placebo 60 minutes before arrival in the operating room, and the tizanidine group received 3 mg of oral tizanidine as premedication 60 minutes before arrival in the operating room. Every patient was measured heart rate and blood pressure before receiving placebo or premedication and after arrival in the operating room. After an epidural catheter was indwelled, the patients were questioned about the infiltrating pain of local anesthetic, and the degree was assessed by means of visual analog scale score (VAS score, 0 to approximately 100 mm).

Seven days after CCI and intrathecal catheter surgeries had been performed in Sprague-Dawley rats, baseline neuropathic pain tests including cold-floor ambulation and paw pinch were performed. Either the dimethyl sulfoxide vehicle (seven rats) or one of the antagonists--5, 23, or 46 microg yohimbine (22 rats); 5, 25, 50, or 100 microg prazosin (25 rats); or 5, 45, or 90 microg WB4101 (11 rats)--were intrathecally administered to the animals, followed in 30 minutes by 50 microg intrathecally administered tizanidine. The neuropathic pain tests were repeated 30 minutes later. The resulting profile showed a descending order of antagonist efficacy for yohimbine, prazosin, and WB4101 for the cold-floor ambulation test and for the paw-pinch test of the affected paw. As expected given tizanidine's lack of analgesic effect on the contralateral, normal paw, there were no effects of antagonists on contralateral paw responses. The results of the paw-pinch test on the affected side were compared with binding data cited in the existing literature for the three different alpha2-adrenergic receptor subtypes (alpha2A, alpha2B, and alpha2C) with yohimbine, prazosin, and WB4101. The antagonist response profile for the paw-pinch test of the affected paw most closely approximated the alpha2B receptor binding profile.

A cost analysis was conducted as part of a prospective, multicentre, multidisciplinary, randomised and placebo-controlled clinical trial. The study covered the period from December 1991 to September 1995. The data on medical consumption and costs were collected over a 3-year period from different sources: administrative databases of health insurance companies, hospital registries and a patient survey. These data were structured by means of a flowchart analysis of the medical decision-making by specialists and general practitioners (GPs). They included data on in- and outpatient care, home care and care in nursing homes. The cost analysis was conducted using data from 18 patients included in the trial and from 15 so-called 'match' patients. The latter group are patients with comparable diseases leading to spasticity and living in comparable circumstances. Next to absolute costs (direct and indirect) of care and treatment for the 2 groups of patients, cost differences between the 2 groups were considered (differential cost analysis).

Tizanidine HCl is a centrally acting α-2 adrenergic agonist muscle relaxant with a slightly bitter taste having short half-life of 2.5 h. In the present study effect of co-processed excipient bases in formulation of orodispersible tizanidine HCl tablets by direct compression method was investigated. Co-processed excipient of microcrystalline cellulose with SSL-hydroxypropylcellulose was prepared using spray drier in 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 ratio. Formulated tablets were evaluated for hardness, friability, in vitro disintegration time and in vitro drug release. Formulation F-3 prepared by addition of co-processed excipient base in ratio of 1:3 showed minimum disintegration time of 9.15±0.04 s and higher amount of drug release of 93.75% at the end of 15 min. Granules obtained by spray drying technique were found to be more spherical which improved its flow property and was supported by scanning electron microscope studies. Thermal studies indicated change in amorphous state, compatibility of drug in formulation was confirmed by fourier transform infrared studies. Analyses of drug release data indicated formulation followed first order kinetics. Inclusion of co-processed excipient base in formulation of orodispersible tablets enhanced disintegration significantly.

Pharmacological manipulation of the excitatory amino acid receptors is likely to be of benefit in important and common diseases of the nervous system. Only a few of the currently available drugs that modify excitatory neurotransmission, such as remacemide, lamotrigine, and tizanidine, have an acceptable therapeutic index. The identification of numerous receptor subtypes, topographic variabilities of distribution, and multiple modulatory sites will provide a true challenge to the neuropharmacologist.

The effects of intrathecal ( injections of antispastic drugs were studied on spontaneous activity in the electromyogram (EMG) in genetically spastic rats and on spinal reflex transmission in anaesthetized normal rats. Baclofen, 0.2-2 nmol, and midazolam, 10-80 nmol, suppressed tonic activity in the EMG recorded from the gastrocnemius muscle in mutant rats, whereas tizanidine, 1-100 nmol, enhanced it. The action of baclofen was antagonized by co-administration of delta-aminovalerate but not by bicuculline, that of midazolam by systemic pretreatment with Ro 15-1788. The effect of tizanidine was antagonized by co-administration of prazosin but not by yohimbine. Baclofen, 2 nmol, exerted suppressant effects on Hoffman (H)-reflexes and spinal flexor reflexes in normal animals, midazolam, 80 nmol, only on flexor reflexes. Tizanidine, 100 nmol, failed to suppress H-reflexes and flexor reflexes. The present results demonstrate a myorelaxant effect of injections of baclofen and midazolam but not of tizanidine.

Effects of drugs affecting the central nervous system on the spinal reflexes and the descending modulations of the reflexes were simultaneously evaluated in rats. Mono- and polysynaptic reflexes were, respectively, increased and decreased by conditioning stimulation of the nucleus raphe in the medulla, with a deflection in resting dorsal root potential being evoked by the stimulation. Baclofen exclusively depressed the segmental responses without affecting the descending modulatory systems. On the other hand, KW-6629 (7-chloro-N,N,3-trimethylbenzo[b]furan-2-carboxamide) significantly depressed the descending modulations without affecting the segmental responses which were sensitive to baclofen. Diazepam and suriclone reduced the descending influence without affecting the ventral root reflexes. Tolperisone and chlorphenesin carbamate as well as tizanidine depressed not only the segmental reflexes but also the descending modulations. Thus, sites of drug actions were estimated.

zanaflex pill 2017-02-12

Tizanidine (Sirdalud) was compared to baclofen (Lioresal) in a randomized, double-blind, cross-over trial. Each medication was introduced over a three week titration period and then maintained at the highest tolerated dose for five weeks. The two treatment phases were separated by a one week drug withdrawal and a two week washout period. Sixty-six patients entered the trial and forty-eight completed both treatment phases. At the end of the trial, neurologists and physiotherapists thought that baclofen was superior on the basis of perceived efficacy and tolerance buy zanaflex (p less than or equal to 0.05). Although the efficacy of tizanidine or baclofen was judged as good to excellent by 24 and 39% of patients respectively, this difference was not statistically significant. Muscle weakness was the most common adverse effect. This was significantly more troublesome in patients treated with baclofen. Somnolence and xerostomia were more common in patients treated with tizanidine. Both baclofen and tizanidine appear to be useful adjuncts in the treatment of spasticity in patients with multiple sclerosis. Preference of either drug is tempered principally by side-effects.

In this case report, we present a 42-year-old man with history of chronic low back pain after a work-related injury. The patient failed multiple therapeutic modalities both conservative and interventional, including numerous spinal injections and placement of a spinal cord stimulator. Finally, an intrathecal morphine pump was placed buy zanaflex to control his pain in addition to oral pain medications. The course of the treatment included adding a muscle relaxant, tizanidine (Zanaflex), to control spasms in the lower extremities. Six weeks after starting tizanidine, a large pleural effusion was noted incidentally on a computerized tomography scan of the thoracic and lumbar spine. The patient underwent work-up for the pleural effusion; all tests came back negative. Finally, a drug reaction to tizanidine was suspected. The drug was discontinued, and 4 weeks later the pleural effusion resolved.

The effect of a novel imidazoline derivative (tizanidine) on stimulated gastric acid secretion was studied in the perfused stomach of anesthetized rats. Tizanidine, which did not prevent peripherally-stimulated gastric acid secretion, inhibited 2DG- or TRH-stimulated gastric acid secretion. Yohimbine and phentolamine reduced the inhibition of TRH-stimulated acid secretion by tizanidine. Clonidine was found to have similar effects to tizanidine at a lower dose. These results indicate that tizanidine may inhibit gastric acid secretion via the central alpha-adrenergic system buy zanaflex similar to clonidine in anesthetized rats.

Spasticity is one of the main symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). Epidemiological studies indicate that approximately two-thirds of MS patients experience spasticity and, in a relevant proportion of this group, spasticity is moderate to severe. Yet, spasticity remains largely undertreated. The most commonly used oral antispasticity agents (e.g., baclofen, tizanidine, gabapentin) generally do not reduce spasticity adequately at dosages that are well tolerated by patients. This review of MS spasticity cases from around Europe presents current knowledge of considerations for buy zanaflex administration of a new agent (tetrahydrocannabinol/cannabidiol-based nabiximols [Sativex®] oromucosal spray) for management of MS spasticity, with the aim of ensuring appropriate and optimal use for best outcomes. Assessment of the European clinical experience is intended to provide a better understanding of the prescribing regulations for MS spasticity treatments, facilitate identification of suitable candidate patients for Sativex and increase awareness of alternative management approaches for MS-related spasticity.

The centrally acting muscle relaxant tizanidine has an imidazoline structure and binds not only to alpha(2)-adrenoceptors but also to imidazoline receptors. The role of imidazoline receptors in the muscle-relaxant effect of tizanidine was studied using the alpha(2)-adrenoceptor/imidazoline receptor antagonist idazoxan and the alpha(2)-adrenoceptor antagonist yohimbine. Tizanidine decreased the spinal mono- and polysynaptic reflexes in intact rats, and the inhibitory effects were antagonized by idazoxan but not by yohimbine. After pretreatment with prazosin, tizanidine decreased the mono- and polysynaptic reflexes in spinalized rats. While yohimbine partly inhibited tizanidine-induced depression of the polysynaptic reflex, idazoxan completely abolished tizanidine-induced depression of spinal reflexes. Furthermore, tizanidine-induced muscle relaxation in the traction test was significantly inhibited by idazoxan but not by yohimbine. From these results, it is suggested buy zanaflex that imidazoline receptors, but not alpha(2)-adrenoceptors, are involved in the supraspinal inhibitory effects of tizanidine on spinal reflexes, and at the spinal level, alpha(2)-adrenoceptors and imidazoline receptors are involved in the inhibitory effects of tizanidine.

This study was conducted to assess the effects of various excipients in 10 different Tizanidine hydrochloride tablet dosage forms that were prepared by direct compression method (DC). Various excipients are available for DC method; we selected those excipients that are used commonly in tablet manufacturing. The excipients used included lactose anhydrous, di-basic calcium phosphate anhydrous, starch, talc, sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP), silicon dioxide (Aerosil), stearic acid, magnesium stearate and microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel). These tablets were then evaluated by performing different pharmacopoeial and non-pharmacopoeial tests (i.e. diameter, hardness, thickness, weight variation, disintegration and assay). It was observed that Formulations B, D and H of Tizanidine hydrochloride gave best results within USP specified limits for the tests employed among all the formulations whereas Formulations F and G showed poor friability, disintegration and dissolution profiles rendering starch in combination of talc and sodium carboxy-methyl cellulose unsuitable for Tizanidine hydrochloride tablet formulations. With the present approach, buy zanaflex more studies can be designed using other active ingredients and excipients to get an optimal and cost effective product.

In the treatment of patients with problematic spasticity, it is important to consider the following steps: 1. Establish the functional impact of the spasticity. 2. Identify the functional goal to be achieved by treatment. 3. Eliminate any remediable spasticity aggravating factors. 4. Evaluate the effects of previous antispasticity treatments. 5. Consider nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic treatments. 6. Initiate therapy with a low dosage, and titrate judiciously. 7. buy zanaflex Stop the titration when functional goal is achieved. 8. If goal is not achieved or if side effects are intolerable, consider a second medication.

Sites of action of centrally active muscle relaxant drugs are not well defined. Clinical experience with such drugs suggests that the spinal cord Flomax Max Dose may be one of the important regions from which pathologically increased muscle tone may be relieved. Supraspinal centers that may also be involved in the expression of muscle relaxant action have not yet been defined. We report here that microinjections of therapeutically relevant muscle relaxants into the midbrain tegmentum of genetically spastic rats decrease muscle tone. The substantia nigra is the region from which midazolam, baclofen, and tizanidine (drugs used clinically in the treatment of spasticity), or gamma-vinyl-GABA, (-)-2-amino-7-phosphonoheptanoate, and [D-pro2-D-phe7-D-trp9]-substance P (experimental drugs active in animal models of spasticity), reduce muscle tone in genetically spastic rats and Hoffmann reflexes in normal rats. The effects of muscle relaxant drugs are topographically restricted to the substantia nigra pars reticulata and are receptor specific. These observations disclose a previously unknown function of the substantia nigra in mediating muscle relaxation.

Cystitis is a possible adverse drug reaction associated with the use of tizanidine. Such cases have been rarely reported in literature because of the difficulty in establishing the causality. However, from a pharmacovigilance point of view, it is better to Cymbalta Medication Assistance report such cases of a possible association between a drug's use and potential adverse drug reactions. We report a case of a 26-year-old Asian female on famotidine who presented with acute severe urinary burning after taking tizanidine.

We included 26 randomised controlled trials involving 1728 participants. Six studies compared an alpha2-adrenergic agonist with placebo, 12 with reducing doses of methadone, four with symptomatic medications, and five compared different alpha2-adrenergic agonists. We assessed 10 studies as having a high risk of bias in at least one of the methodological domains that were considered.We found moderate-quality evidence that alpha2-adrenergic agonists were more effective than placebo in ameliorating withdrawal in terms of the likelihood of severe withdrawal (risk ratio (RR) 0.32, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.18 to 0.57; 3 studies; 148 participants). We found moderate-quality evidence that completion of treatment was significantly more likely with alpha2-adrenergic agonists compared with placebo (RR 1.95, 95% CI 1.34 to 2.84; 3 studies; 148 participants).Peak withdrawal severity may be greater with alpha2-adrenergic agonists than with reducing doses of methadone, as measured by the likelihood of severe withdrawal (RR 1.18, 95% CI 0.81 to 1.73; 5 studies; 340 participants; low quality), and peak withdrawal score (standardised mean difference (SMD) 0.22, 95% CI -0.02 to 0.46; 2 studies; 263 participants; moderate quality), but these differences were not significant and there is no significant difference in severity when considered over the entire duration of the withdrawal episode (SMD 0.13, 95% CI -0.24 to 0.49; 3 studies; 119 participants; moderate quality). The signs and symptoms of withdrawal occurred and resolved earlier with alpha2-adrenergic agonists. The duration of treatment was significantly longer with reducing doses of methadone (SMD -1.07, 95% CI -1.31 to -0.83; 3 studies; 310 participants; low quality). Hypotensive or other adverse effects were significantly more likely with alpha2-adrenergic agonists (RR 1 Trileptal Seizure Medication .92, 95% CI 1.19 to 3.10; 6 studies; 464 participants; low quality), but there was no significant difference in rates of completion of withdrawal treatment (RR 0.85, 95% CI 0.69 to 1.05; 9 studies; 659 participants; low quality).There were insufficient data for quantitative comparison of different alpha2-adrenergic agonists. Available data suggest that lofexidine does not reduce blood pressure to the same extent as clonidine, but is otherwise similar to clonidine.

The aim of this study was to investigate the contribution of proprioceptive feedback to the amplitude modulation of the soleus muscle activity during human walking. We have previously shown that slow-velocity, small-amplitude ankle dorsiflexion enhancements and reductions applied during the stance phase of the step cycle generate, respectively, increments and decrements on the ongoing soleus activity. We have also shown that the increments in soleus activity are at least partially mediated by feedback from group Ia fibres. In the present study, we further investigated the afferent-mediated contribution from muscle group II afferents, cutaneous and proprioceptive afferents from the foot, and load-sensitive afferents to the soleus EMG. Slow-velocity, small-amplitude ankle trajectory modifications were combined with the pharmaceutical depression of group II polysynaptic pathways with tizanidine hydrochloride, anaesthetic blocking of sensory information from the foot with injections of lidocaine hydrochloride, and modulation of load feedback by increasing and decreasing the body load. The depression of the group II afferents significantly reduced the soleus response to the ankle trajectory modifications. Blocking sensory feedback from the foot did not have an effect on the soleus muscle activity. Changes in body load affected the ongoing soleus activity level; however, it did not affect the amplitude of the soleus EMG responses to the ankle trajectory modifications. These results suggest that the feedback from group II afferents, and possibly from load-sensitive afferents, contribute to the amplitude modulation of the soleus muscle activity during the stance phase of the step cycle. However, feedback from cutaneous afferents and instrinsic proprioceptive Flomax 64 Mg afferents from the foot does not seem to contribute to this muscle activation.

The effects of tizanidine on the electromyographic responses of forearm flexors and extensors to torque disturbances were studied in normal subjects. Tizanidine had a strong depressive action on all the reflex responses, and on muscle background activity. It is concluded that the action on reflexes is not specific, but secondary to decreased spinal cord excitability.

There is no doubt that spasticity is a significant cause of disability in the elderly. Regrettably, it is a condition that is often poorly treated and can result in a range of unnecessary complications which can cause further problems for the disabled person and their family. There are now a number of effective treatment options. However, before such options are defined the specific goals of rehabilitation need to be clarified and an appropriate outcome measure chosen in order to determine when such goals are being met. The treatment should be multidisciplinary and input from both the physician and a physiotherapist is essential. Involvement of the elderly person with spasticity, and often their family, is also important in the education process. Simple physiotherapy interventions can be remarkably helpful, including attention to positioning and seating. The role of the physician initially focuses on oral medication. Although we still have older drugs including diazepam, baclofen and dantrolene there are now more modern drugs including tizanidine and, more recently, gabapentin. However, most spasticity is focal in origin and thus requires focal treatment. Although phenol nerve blocks are sometimes helpful the use of botulinum toxin is now to be highly recommended. There is now clear evidence of the efficacy of botulinum toxin, which has been a significant advance in our management of spasticity. More advanced and difficult to treat problems can be alleviated by intrathecal baclofen or sometimes intrathecal phenol or, as a last resort, surgical intervention. The advent of lycra garments for the overall management of more diffuse spasticity is now becoming both fashionable and effective.

The authors' results show that intrathecal tizanidine and clonidine synergistically interact with lidocaine so that the degree of antinociception to somatic noxious stimuli are enhanced. The antinociceptive synergistic interaction between tizanidine and lidocaine may be useful in clinical practice without affecting blood pressure, heart rate, or motor function.

Improvements in function were achieved in a limited number of people with SCI. Using the MID and GMM techniques, differences in responses to interventions between high-and low-functioning participants could be identified. These techniques may, therefore, have potential to be used for characterizing therapeutic effects resulting from different interventions.

The overall efficacy and tolerance of a new skeletal muscle relaxant DS 103-282 was evaluated by treating 10 patients with chronic spinal spasticity. Other agents such as baclofen, dantrolene sodium or diazepam had been only minimally beneficial in these patients. Treatment was started with DS 103-282 at a mean dosage of 7.4 mg. per day which was adjusted according to response up to 14.5 mg. per day at the end of the 8-week trial period. Objective rating assessments showed improvement in spasticity, medullary automatism and clonus. No changes were recorded in the reflex pattern nor improvement in disability scores. Only a few mild side-effects were reported, there was a noticeable absence of sedation, but reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure was noted in most patients. DS 103-282 appears to have demonstrable myotonolytic action and in view of its good tolerance it deserves further investigation.
