I love Robaxin (methocarbamol). Back in the '80's I was given this for back spasms. I took two tablets four times a day. The first two tablets would have me asleep withing fifteen minutes but the rest of the time they didn't bother me.
When I suggested Robaxin to my rheumy five years ago he agreed to prescribe them. I could barely walk at that point. He ordered the same dose that the doctor up north had given me. I decided to see how little I could take instead of taking the full dose. I tried one tablet four times a day when I would take my ibuprofen, and I wasn't groggy, sleepy, etc.! This made a significant difference in my pain so I now was able to take less ibuprofen and Tylenol. I now take ibuprofen, Tylenol, and one Robaxin tablet twice a day...every 12 hours. That's it! I have no negative side effects and I'm one who has sensitivity to medications. I drive all over the place. I live alone so I can't take something that prevents me from taking care of my home or driving.
I hope you can try this and it works for you. If you get a little sleepy, give it a chance...at least a week. This is very inexpensive too. I buy the generic, methocarbamol. I use the brand name on the forum because I don't have to type so much. 😂
