Hello,

The drug for muscle spasm is tizanidine or thiocolchicoside or chlorzoxazone as these are prescription drugs. Please contact your local doctor he will prescribe these. Just relax. You may try mind relaxation techniques like deep breathing.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
