Hi John.

I was just becoming interested in tizanidine. I've already broached the subject of using clonidine with my doctor. He knows my feelings regarding my reactions to idazoxan and mirtazepine.

I saw some stuff indicating that tizanidine might be as effective as clonidine in mitigating opioid withdrawal symptoms, but without the hypotensive side effects. I am looking forward to see you do well with it. Another drug that I would like to see brought to market is flesinoxan. Like buspirone, it is a 5-HT1a agonist. However, unlike buspirone (and ipsapirone), I don't think it has any metabolites that antagonize NE alpha-2 receptors. Woo hoo!

I don't seem to be able to read or write in volume lately, so I apologize for not replying to some of your other posts. Besides, I would have to do quite a bit of remedial reading just to understand it all! So many interactions between circuits! I'm afraid I might blow the few I have left should I decide to try. :-) I am grateful that someone here is so strong at understanding neural circuitry and integrating it with the chemistry of neurotransmission.

Is the Zanaflex being prescribed for myofacial pain? Is it expensive?

By the way, how do you respond to Neurontin?
