Zanaflex Your experiences with this medication

Hello Everyone,

I'm not on anything for my MS except the Copaxone which I really want to stop soon. I stopped all the stuff they gave me to go along with the MS issues ( Provigil, Baclofen, Neurontin...) I just hated them.

Once relapse starts, anyone halted it?

Hi
now is the time when my brain goes to mush and all the strategies I normally have, I forget. Fear sets in.

Noticed a heaviness in my limbs last week, now I see the familiar strong reddish/purple colour under my eyes - that always happens just before a relapse and it's unrelated to lack of sleep. My arms and legs feel leaden, numbness is creeping back to my right side, and I know that ...
