Were you looking for information about Methocarbamol? Methocarbomol is a common misspelling of methocarbamol.
Available by prescription only, methocarbamol (Robaxin®) is a medication that can provide pain relief for people who suffer from short-term "musculoskeletal conditions," such as muscle spasms due to an injury. The muscle relaxant is available in both generic and brand-name forms, and is approved for use in conjunction with rest, physical therapy, and other treatments.
The drug comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken three to four times a day (an injectable form is also available for injection into a vein or a muscle). Although most people tolerate it well, side effects are possible; common ones include dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea.
