From this study (1 month ago):
I take 4mg Tizanidine (generic Zanaflex) 3X/Day for Spasticity from Cerebral Palsy. My legs twitch and kick out when I am trying to sleep at night. Cannot get them to calm down unless I sit on side of the bed for 15-20 minutes. Lately that doesn't work. I also noticed when I was waiting a couple of days for the med to be refilled, my legs STOPPED TWITCHING. Is there a connection between NO DRUG and NO TWITCHING?? Please advise. Thank you. I have asked Primary Care Physician and a Physiatrist if it was Restless Leg Syndrome and they both said no, flat out, no. Thank you for your time in consideration of this matter.
