    Post Robaxin??

    Has anyone taken Robaxin-750 for muscle spasms? The doctor prescribed these for me a
    month or so ago. I took one the other day and it literally had zero effect on me. Anyone had any success with these? I'm assuming these are pretty weak as far as muscle relaxers go.

    Thumbs down

    Robaxin was such a lousy muscle relaxer for me, I accused my doc of giving me a placebo! The stuff was utterly useless and I did persuade her to change me to something else.

    I am currently on Soma 350, and this one is the real deal for me. It is a great muscle relaxer, and it does not cause me any drowsiness at all, and never really did.

    Another great one is Flexeril, but it makes just about everyone sleepy for a while. I know it certainly threw me for a loop when I first started taking them, which was how I found Soma.

    Robaxin must be good for someone, but I think it's a total waste of time and does very little to NOTHING to help.....
