Methocarbamol 750 mg
A prescription muscle relaxant, methocarbamol (Robaxin®) can relieve pain caused by muscle spasms, such as those caused by an injury. The medication is available in both brand-name and generic forms, and comes in the form of a tablet that is typically taken up to four times a day. An injectable version is also available.
The tablets come in two different strengths: 500 mg (generic only) and 750 mg. When starting methocarbamol, the recommended dosage is usually 1500 mg (three 500-mg tablets or two 750-mg tablets) four times daily for the first two to three days of treatment. After that, your healthcare provider will likely reduce the dose to 1500 mg twice daily, 1000 mg four times daily, or 750 mg six times daily.
