Miorel is an oral muscle relaxant, which fundamentally relaxes skeletal or striated muscles. It helps to rest certain muscles of your body and eases spasms, cramping, and tightness of muscles that are caused by some medical issues such as multiple sclerosis or spinal injury.
Miorel acts as a pain reliever as well, and helps by facilitating better movement of muscles. It also known for relaxing muscle stiffness caused by certain conditions, for example cerebral palsy, stroke, or brain lesions. What you must remember is that Miorel does not heal these medical problems; however, it aids in improving your condition.
Miorel reinstates the standard sense of balance and lessens muscle hyperactivity, which makes normal muscle movement possible. It does so by working on the central nervous system and generates muscle relaxant effects.
In general, muscles obtain electrical signals through nerves to contract and relax. Spasticity is caused by a disproportion of electrical signals, which come from spinal cord via nerves to your muscles. Because of this inequity, muscles become hyperactive and result in reflex spasms. Miorel aids to restores the normal balance and lessons muscle hyperactivity.
Normally, it is recommended Miorel be consumed three times a day at uniform intervals. It comes in tablets, which are to be consumed orally. The normal dose to start with is 5 mg for adults. Depending on the individual response, the dosage can be slowly increased after about three days, and can be taken up to 80 mg per day as the maximum.
The medication can be slow to show the desired effect. It may take a long time, maybe two months, to notice the complete effects of the medication. The result becomes obvious for several hours every time you take it, and it disappears within a few hours. Owing to this factor, it is advisable that you take the drug when you require more muscular movement.
Like most medications, Miorel can also cause certain side effects: drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, headache, seizures, nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, constipation, perplexity, respiratory depression, sleeping issues, or increased urinary frequency are some of the more common side effects.
Keeping in mind these side effects, you should be careful if you have to drive after taking Miorel as it may affect your thinking or reactions. You should also avoid drinking alcohol as it can augment certain side effects of this drug. If you experience any of these side effects and they do not lessen or go away after some time, you must see your doctor immediately.
