My doctor switched saying they werent allowed to perscribe Soma anymore and I have severe neck, back, and shoulder pain. Will the Robaxin actually help the pain, because I am not on any type of pain medication.

Soma is metabolized into Meprobamate. Meprobamate used to be used a lot as a mild tranquilizer until it was realized how addictive it was. Many Drs are now reluctant to prescribe Soma because of this reason. There are other muscle relaxants that work well that dont carry the addictive properties of Soma. Kaismama hit on a big factor in that the medication is now a controlled drug and many Drs try to limit the amount of controlled drugs they prescribe in fear of DEA scrutiny. Robaxin is a good muscle relaxant too. It should do as well as Soma.
