Were you looking for information about Methocarbamol? Methacarbanol is a common misspelling of methocarbamol.
If you have muscle spasms due to an injury, you may benefit from taking methocarbamol (Robaxin®). This medication has been shown to help relieve pain caused by short-term musculoskeletal conditions. Available as an injection or a tablet, the medicine should be used along with other treatments, such as physical therapy and rest.
This product does not work directly on the muscles. Instead, it works mostly in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) to treat pain.
Methocarbamol comes in both generic and brand-name forms, and is tolerated well by most people. Before starting treatment, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or thinking of becoming pregnant.
