ten years. Was told by pain doc and rheumatologist that it's an old drug introduced in the 1950s and is considered very mild. I changed pain doctor and he said absolutely no more metho for me. All he would say is that he thinks it's a bad drug and that 6 per day was way too much. So put me on baclofen, 3 per day. It's OK but I miss the methocarbamol. It works quickly and lasts until the next dose. Anyone have this experience or know if suddenly it is considered a drug to avoid? Interestingly, my new insurance will not pay for it. Thanks a lot. Hank
I know this is a couple years later but my doctor gives me Methocarbamol and it works pretty good. I would change pain management doctors if you're not getting what you need. There is a state of emergency in Florida now and they took away my pain pills and gave me Methocarbamol and its place. Pain is a terrible thing to have to live with every day . I hope you worked out your situation.
