Men Home > Robaxin Oral Medication

Your healthcare provider may prescribe Robaxin® (methocarbamol) if you have painful muscle spasms due to an injury. Available in the form of a tablet or an injection, the medication is meant to be used along with physical therapy, rest, and other forms of treatment. It is available in both generic and brand-name forms.
 
The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary based on factors such as how you respond to the medication, whether you have other medical conditions, and the severity of your muscle spasms. Typically, oral Robaxin tablets are taken three to four times a day. While most people do not experience problems while taking this muscle relaxant, side effects are possible. Commonly reported side effects include nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness.
