Methocarbamol Side Effects

Possible Side Effects of Methocarbamol

Methocarbamol is a relatively old medication, approved before it was standard practice to include highly detailed side effect information in the prescribing information for medications. As a result, only vague side effect information is available, with no percentages.
 
Based on this limited information, some of the possible methocarbamol side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Flushing
  • Indigestion or heartburn
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Confusion or memory loss
  • Double vision
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Drowsiness
  • Insomnia
  • Mild muscle coordination problems
  • Involuntary, jittery eye movements
  • A spinning sensation (vertigo)
  • Blurred vision
  • Pink eye (conjunctivitis)
  • Nasal congestion
  • Metallic taste in the mouth.
     

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking this drug. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of methocarbamol, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
