Thiocolchicoside (Muscoril, Myoril, Neoflax) is a muscle relaxant with anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It acts as a competitive GABAA receptor antagonist and also glycine receptor antagonist with similar potency and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors to a much lesser extent. It has powerful convulsant activity and should not be used in seizure-prone individuals. This mechanism of action would be expected to induce withdrawal symptoms in gabaminergic (ex. barbiturates, carbamates, ethanol) dependent individuals, including the potentially lethal delerium tremens.
