Zanaflex, will be used to reduce muscle spasticity
The other new one, Zanaflex, will be used to reduce muscle spasticity...in patients with MS or spinal cord injuries.
It's the first new oral drug approved for spasticity since Lioresal (baclofen) came out 20 years ago.
Zanaflex works as well as Lioresal to relieve muscle stiffness and spasms. But Lioresal is more likely to cause muscle weakness...Zanaflex is more likely to cause drowsiness.
