Reviews for Methocarbamol to treat Opiate Withdrawal

"As a chronic pain patient I use Methocarbamal aka Robaxin to temper my tolerance to my pain medications. I find it very helpful to identify just how much pain medication I need at any one time verses how much my body is wanting because of addiction. It's been extremely helpful post surgery to get off morphine, fentynal and oxycodone."

"I am 6 days into detoxing at home after a marathon of using oxycodone Morphine Dilaudid and Fentanyl for around year and Robaxin really helped with the muscle cramps and general creepy crawly feeling you get. Haven't had any episodes of uncontrollable vomiting or diarrhea. I'm also using 8mg Zofran dissolving tabs for nausea and as a prevention for vomiting. I've been able to eat somewhat the last 2 days. At this point its just to far in to quit. Holding strong but still feeling anxious as can be."

Robaxin (methocarbamol): "I found this medication to be helpful with getting some sleep! Which is the worst part of opiate withdrawal to me. It also helps with the aches you get that feel like they're in your bones! It was a really big help especially in getting me over that 1 to 2 week hump! The most vital part of the withdrawal experience!"

"I am so glad I came across this site. I have Methocarbamol, fortunately, as it was prescribed to me for muscle spasms. Had a C5/C6 surgery last year which alleviated the spasms. But periodically still experience it so I get it refilled every so often. Never knew it could be used for opiate withdrawal. My percs scripts never last through the entire month so I find myself stretching it and towards the end of the month before refill time I start experiencing the skin crawls like most do. I came across this site today and will begin taking the methocarbamol for these WD symptoms. I'll post update to let you all know how it goes. Wish me luck!! And thank you for the input!! I hope it works"

Robaxin (methocarbamol): "Didn't do anything for me second day on it and all it did was make my symptoms worse. Worse than just detoxing without anything"

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."
