Is methocarbamol 750mg the same as pregabalin? If not. what's the difference? I am a 28 year old male and suffer with Myotonia congenita just looking for something to help me with very bad muscle stiffness and locking from my head to my toes. Thanks for any information.

Hi I have experience with both drugs. Both work on the central nervous system not directly on muscle or nerves. For me, the side effects of pregabalin were awful -- I gained 30 lbs in 8 weeks with no relief. Methocarbamol works much better for me without side effects. My condition isn't as severe as yours; I've had fibromyalgia for 30 years and now have multiple disc problems. I hope you find some help soon. Tylerallen
Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxer. Pregabalin is for easing nerve pain. Soma may be more appropriate for you as it is a strong muscle relaxer.
