Hi,

Thanks for this question. Actually there is no interaction between zanaflex and alcohol, although it can cause you to become more drowsy than usual since tinazidine can cause some sedation. So while there is no major interaction, do take care and not drive or handle anything which can harm you. But it can be taken safely especially since there will be a couple of hours between the ingestion of the two.

Do you have any more questions?
