Methocarbamol

Brand names: Methocarbamol   Robaxin   Robaxin-750  

Skeletal muscle relaxants are used to relax certain muscles in your body and relieve the stiffness, pain, and discomfort caused by strains, sprains, or other injury to your muscles. However, these medicines do not take the place of rest, exercise or physical therapy, or other treatment that your doctor may recommend for your medical problem. Methocarbamol also has been used to relieve some of the muscle problems caused by tetanus.Skeletal muscle relaxants act in the central nervous system (CNS) to produce their muscle relaxant effects. Their actions in the CNS may also produce some of their side effects.These medicines are available only with your doctor's prescription. In Canada, some of these medicines are available without a prescription.

Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain. It has no direct effect on the muscle. Methocarbamol is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain and discomfort caused by sprains and strains. Methocarbamol may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Methocarbamol for Muscle Spasm: This RX is the only 1 that truly is a Relaxant 'of the muscles', all the others are a 'Brain Fuzz' type rx. I am a 25 yr chronic pain, neurologic disease, fibromyalgia, connective tissue dis, & more patient! I take other meds for pain - however methocarbamol does actually help kick some of the knots out as long as you aren't actively fighting against it by loading a truck or anything!? Take It Easy Everyone.

Methocarbamol for Muscle Spasm: Robaxin is the most worthless Muscle relaxer I've ever taken in my life. (500mgs X 2) every 4 to 6 hours. They did nothing at all. So the Doctor change my Meds. Then gave me Flexeril 10mgs 3 times a day. With 20mgs of Percocet every 4 to 6 for pain. Just so I could walk again. The good thing, Because of the Flexeril. I don't have to take all those Percocet's. The Flexeril seems to work pretty good on it's own. I get to sleep again! The only thing I don't like about them. They dry me out really badly. But as long as they keep me out of the O.R. I'm happy!

Robaxin for Muscle Spasm: I absolutely love this Medication. After being in a car accident I suffer from permanant back and neck damage. I am also a hair dresser. In order to work I will have to be on Pain killers and muscle relaxers the rest of my life. I started by taking Percocet and grew an allergy to all opiate derivatives. As a result my doctor perscribed me Robaxin. My family has a high tolerance to pain medication so I was afraid that it would not work. I was pleasantly surprised. It worked wonderful and I could still function and focus. An added plus is that there is no possibility of dependancy. I love it.

Methocarbamol for Muscle Spasm: Was given this for lower back pain, after 2 days every joint in my body was swollen and so sore I could hardly move. Started in my upper joints, by the next day, my hips, knees and ankles (even toes) were so sore, swollen and weak I couldn't get out of bed. JUST SAY NOOOOO! What ever happened to Valium? Also nightmares, if I slept at all. After 2 days off of the med, the swelling slowly lessened, was sore for another 2 days. Don't risk it. As a caregiver for a man with MS and a grandmother raising her grand, it was a frightening and helpless not to mention DANGEROUS nightmare. I'll take the bad back anytime over this nightmare.

Methocarbamol for Muscle Spasm: I have used rabaxin (generic term) for probably ten years. I do not have to take it as often, but it works great for muscle spasms and general tightening of my muscles, ligaments, tendons,etc. The only problem I have had is stomach pain if I do not take it with milk. However, I would recommend rabaxin for anyone who suffers from any source of pain. It also makes it possible for me to use less pain medication for my chronic pain.

Methocarbamol for Muscle Spasm: I was give this drug to help with muscle spasms from a back injury. I have to take it when I try to go to sleep. It works great at stopping the spasms. However, I take multiple doses of morphine daily and the combination of the morphine and methocarbamol knocks me out for 8-12 hours, but then it takes another 4-6 hours to become fully awake and functional. I can only take it when the spasms are at their worst and I have no plans for the next day.
