Robaxin Side Effects

Because Robaxin is a relatively old medication, only vague information is available on its side effects. Most people tolerate the drug well, however, and any side effects that do occur are generally mild. Common side effects of Robaxin may include things like fever, flushing, and headache. If you experience severe fatigue, slow heart rate, or a yellowing of the skin, contact your healthcare provider.

An Introduction to Robaxin Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Robaxin® (methocarbamol). However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Robaxin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
