Chemical Dantrolene

Name Dantrolene
CAS Type 1 Name 2,4-Imidazolidinedione, 1-(((5-(4-nitrophenyl)-2-furanyl)methylene)amino)-
Equivalent Terms Dantrium | Dantrolene Sodium | Sodium, Dantrolene
CAS Registry Number 7261-97-4
Definition Skeletal muscle relaxant that acts by interfering with excitation-contraction coupling in the muscle fiber. It is used in spasticity and other neuromuscular abnormalities. Although the mechanism of action is probably not central, dantrolene is usually grouped with the central muscle relaxants.
