Robaxin-750 (methocarbamol): "I had surgery for a quadriceps tendon rupture in October. I've been on various opiates since. Most currently 5 mg.Oxycodone. I have a mild dependency issue going on, but I've been able to ward off WD symptoms by taking 750 mg of Robaxin, 50 mg of Tramadol, 4 Ibruprofen all at once. Without them I get the runny nose, watery eyes, restlessness, joint pain, etc. The "cocktail" I have put together has worked perfectly. I sleep through the night and have been able to get down to 2.5 mg of Oxycodone once per day now."

"After 7 years of Norco 10/325 I was taking 12-18 a day. Quit cold turkey and started Robaxin 1000 mg with 400 ibuprofen. Absolutely no body aches or restless legs! Mentally yes it's tough but this has been way better then I thought it would be. Imodium helps the diarrhea. I am almost 72 hours clean and physically have been great, even played 18 holes of golf yesterday. Slight headache and no motivation but pushing through it. Methocarbamol is a must for withdrawal!"

Robaxin (methocarbamol): "It's a miracle pill! I would have not been able to break the habit, if it were not for methocarbomal! It really does work! For me the worst part of withdrawal is the pain in the bones (the feeling that your bones want to jump out of your skin). This medication along with Suboxone for me, has almost completely eliminated that pain! I take 2 x 750 or 3 500mg every 6 hours right before I take my Suboxone. Thank you, to whoever has made this pill. NOTE: when I wasn't going through withdrawal the medication had no type of reaction on me. "

Robaxin-750 (methocarbamol): "I started Robaxin a month ago. I take 1000 mg a day and after my next script I'm cutting to 500mg a day, then quitting all together. I was on Loratb 10's for two years and been clean for almost a 40 days now. I was trying to quit for many many months, but my mind and selfishness just wouldn't allow it. I lost a lot of important things in my life due to opiate addiction for pain, so I recommend you do what I did and just be honest with the people closest to you, ask doctor for help and be honest with him. It is very hard to do and will be very emotional, but it will turn your life around I promise. Go to doctor!"

Robaxin-750 (methocarbamol): "Took 1000 mg for minor withdrawls from heroin use, and it really did the trick. Completely alleviated my muscle pains, and definitely had an effect on the skin crawls as well. I'm really glad I had these."

"As an opiate addict for about 10 years with a nasty addiction this drug helped aid in the withdrawal/opiate detox. Needless to say it still wasn't easy. This made those long painful nights just a little more tolerable. It helped with the muscle pains where other opiate substitute medications failed me. Also I didn't feel the need to continue taking these once the opiate addiction was driven down to a tolerable rate. As for the the upset stomach, I just tried to keep healthy foods in my diet and that slowly went away. This medication didn't help in that regard. I had no side effects."

"Wasn't fond of opiate based medications and this helped with the withdrawal symptoms. Does some good (7/10) in alleviating tightness of the muscles when taken as prescribed, but the great thing about it is, there is no possibility of dependency."
