    Anyone taking Robaxin(methocarbamol) as a muscle relaxant?

    I was told to take Robaxin...two 750mg. tablets every six hours...for my tight neck and shoulder muscles which are causing dizziness. The Robaxin seems to make me feel quite weak and rather sedated..anyone else experience these side effects with Robaxin?

    I have been prescribed methocarbamol, but I take it occasionally. It does make you drowsy and weak. Always take it with food. It does not releive pain but relaxes your muscles. Ask your doctor whether you can take it only during the night.

    I noticed your post on (Robaxin). My son was prescribed this after being in fatal car accident over the weekend. We havent filled it yet mainly because I Dont know if it is a good muscle relant for back injuries and we have to pay cash. Aside from the drowsiness, Could anyone tell me how well it works?. Or is there another one that we could ask for before filling the script?...................Thanks, S. King

    Hi, I take Robaxin, but only 500 mg every 6 to 8 hours, I would think that 2 750mg would be too much. Valley

    I took it at 750mg and don't really remember it effecting me at all, howver I'm pretty tolerant to meds and have to take stronger meds to make them work. I remember getting it one time at the hospital by iv and that worked pretty good.

    Good Luck

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I decided not to take the Robaxin for awhile..at least not two at once..maybe half of one.
    Sanking111-I was so sorry to hear about your son being involved in the car accident. How is he doing? I guess I can say concerning the Robaxin that I noticed a little muscle relief, but noticed mostly the side effects of weakness and sedation.
