Basic Information On Dantrium
Dantrium is a muscle relaxant that is used for the treatment of spasms (also known as spasticity) caused by nerve disorders like stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy or multiple sclerosis. It can be used to reduce or prevent the risk of serious high body temperature (known as malignant hyperthermia) in some patients before surgery or before giving anesthesia and to prevent further occurrences. It helps in inhibiting the release of some substances in the body that are required by the muscles for contraction. It also helps in restoring a good level of calcium in the muscles. This helps in preventing or reducing severe high body temperature. Dantrium is a prescription drug.
