Commonly prescribed for: Muscle relaxation with intervertebral disc disease and traumatic muscle-strains; other
Therapeutic Class: Centrally acting Muscle-relaxant
Methocarbamol is a centrally acting muscle-relaxant that is chemically related to guaifenesin. Methocarbamol diminishes skeletal muscle hyperactivity without altering normal muscle tone. The mechanism of action is via the internucial neurons of the spinal chord. Methocarbamol interrupts the transmission of abnormal impulses from disturbed muscle but does not affect the contractile mechanism of skeletal muscle. Methocarbamol is used to treat muscle spasms associated with back problems and exercise-related muscle problems such as exertional rhabdomyolysis. It also may be used as part of the treatment for tetanus and strychnine poisoning in dogs and cats. Methocarbamol is safe to use with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, and other medications used to treat muscle spasm.
