If you take Zanaflex (sometimes prescribed for muscle spasms, periodic limb movement disorder, or as a headache or Migraine preventive), you need to be aware of a recent MedWatch alert. Acorda Therapeutics, makers of Zanaflex, and the FDA have informed healthcare professionals of changes to the contraindications and warnings sections of the product labeling.
For more information about this alert, see Lead Expert Teri Robert’s SharePost on MyMigraineConnection.
