Over-the-counter pain relief with Robaxin.

Filed under: Muscle Pain — Tags: , , — drwatson @ 8:33 am

Robaxin is an over the counter muscle relaxant which works by blocking nerve impulses that are sent to your brain. It is used, along with rest and physical therapy, to treat injuries and other painful muscular conditions. Robaxin is also used in the treatment of tetanus.

Before taking Robaxin, inform your doctor if you have kidney disease, liver disease, or a seizure disorder. There is no evidence showing that Robaxin will harm an unborn baby but it’s best to consult your doctor first if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding. Robaxin is not approved for use in children younger than 12 years of age.
