Were you looking for information about Methocarbamol? Methocaramol is a common misspelling of methocarbamol.
Methocarbamol (Robaxin®) is a muscle relaxant that is available only with a prescription. The medicine is approved to be used along with rest, physical therapy, and other treatments to relieve pain from acute (short-term) painful muscle spasms. This drug may cause drowsiness, dizziness, and other side effects. If you have epilepsy or a history of seizures, check with your healthcare provider before taking it.
In many cases, methocarbamol tablets are taken three to four times a day (an injectable version is also available). You can take this medication with or without food, but you must take it exactly as prescribed in order for it to work properly. As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
