My pain doc prescribed Robaxin 500mg twice a day. It's about
like taking 1 Tylenol, which is barely noticeable.
At first I had some minor side effects, but they're gone now. I looked up the dosage and it seems I'm taking 1/4 the minimum maintenance dosage - which would seem to explain why I am getting next to no benefit.
Should I ask my pain doc to increase my dosage to see if it will be helpful?
I am currently also taking Vicodin, but would like to reduce it, or preferably find something else to replace it, as I am getting tolerant. It helps with fibro and arthritis pain, but a muscle relaxant helps also. I tried Flexeril, but it put me to sleep.
