    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi SilverDove,

    While you're waiting for responses here, try inputting these medication names in the Search field at the top of the board. That will lead you to our drug area and you can find member reviews of these medications.

    Sabrina,

    I am taking this med and have taken buspar also a long time ago. Both are great meds and for me who has side effects from everything had no problem with either one of these meds. I take 1/2 the normal dose of the tizanidine and have no hang over or drowsiness or anything with it. Cat:0)
