Reviews for Robaxin-750

Jinx342 · Taken for less than 1 month June 18, 2020

For Muscle Spasm: “I have taken Robaxin 750 in place of my usual dose of MS Contin at night and I’m able to get a full night of good sleep without waking up in pain and without the painful Charlie horses I was getting in my calves and feet because of compression on my nerve roots. Robaxin is the only muscle relaxer I can tolerate - has no side effects for me at all. Best of all - skipping that PM does of morphine is really good! When I first took Robaxin three years ago for back spasms it seemed to NOT work for me, I don’t know what changed, but I’m happy that it’s working now - especially that it can be used as a replacement for my PM opiate. Very happy with it. Always consult your Dr. first.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I had neck surgery Monday Dec 30th. C5, C6 and C7 doctor went in from the front. Went home Tuesday Dec 31 with these 1 Roxaxin every 8 hrs. Has not even begun to touch my muscle spasms or muscle pain. Absolutely suffering”

For Muscle Spasm: “On Christmas 2019, I was subjected to the Heimlich Maneuver after a piece of roast beef swallowed wrong caused me to choke and wheeze. I couldn't breathe.Luckily, there was a waiter who knew the Heimlich Maneuver. He saved me. Unfortunately, I ended up with EXTREME bruising and pain in my chest. X-rays determined I did not have any actual rib fractures. My doctor prescribed 750 mg tablets of Robaxin, taken 4 times a day. When I first took it, it made me rather groggy.That feeling lasted for a few hours. And it did upset my stomach somewhat. The Robaxin did not make my pain go away completely, but lessened it enough so I could relax and feel fairly comfortable. The pain became a annoyance, rather than agony. My health insurance plan didn't cover it, And I'm sure the side effects will lessen as I get used to having the medication in my system.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I have been taking Robaxin for Spinal stenosis, degenerative disc, lower back pain, muscle spasms and migraines , I've been on it about a week now and this medication is horrible! It does not help at all. I'm still in pain all day, everyday, my migraines have been getting worse, and it upsets my stomach so I stopped taking it. My migraines subsided and I have been able to eat properly.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I use Robaxin for muscle spasms in my lower back. When I feel a slight twinge I take a 750 mg caplet and 800 mg ibuprofen .. if I catch it quickly it really helps control the pain . I take one every 4-6 hours for several days it definitely helps me.”

For Muscle Spasm: “Started taking Robaxine about a week ago, 750mg QID because I threw my back out. It definitely helps with the minor spasms and aches but doesn’t touch the big ones. Taken with the 800mg Ibuprofen it does better. I would take opiates for pain but I refuse the risk of addiction. It’s adequate. I did have to go in today for IM toradol (an NSAID, like ibuprofen) so maybe the methocarbamol will work better in conjunction with that instead.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I haven't taken this too long. I know enough that this like many drugs, are not magic pills. I have spinal stenosis due to 3 herniated disks and degenerative disk disease. I also have fibromyalgia. My doctor cut my opioids back to 3 morphine a day, the lowest possible dose all because of the CDC and DEA. When I took the higher dose of opioids (which were increased over a long period of time), my pain was better controlled. Although this doesn't make me sleepy, I can't honestly say it does much for me, if anything. I also take gabapentin for nerve pain which helps me quite a bit. Not all meds work for everyone. First time I took it, I took it with my gabapentin and morphine. Won't do that again. Made me very, very dizzy and loopy and had to go to bed. And I have a high tolerance for meds. Now I can take any 2 of my meds at a time, just not all 3. Insurance doesn't cover it.”

Aunna · Taken for 10 years or more January 27, 2019

For Muscle Spasm: “I have taken Methocarbamol for 20 years and it's the only muscle relaxant I can take. It's the only one that doesn't have side effects for me. It's the best muscle relaxant I have ever taken, and I've tried all of them. I wish it wasn't so expensive though, and I can't figure out why it is. A lot more people would take it if it wasn't so expensive!! It doesn't cause drowsiness, headaches, blurred vision, heart palpitations, and I don't have side effects from the other medicines I take, and I take some that's on the list that says side effects.”

For Muscle Spasm: “Pulled my lower abdominal muscles working. These work great for the spasms I've been experiencing. I take one 750mg robaxin and 800mg of ibuprofen. It takes about 2.5 hours to fully kick in but then I'm good for 6-7 hours. At the 8 hour mark the spasms are back in full force and I repeat the medicine.”

RayeAngela1 January 9, 2018

For Muscle Spasm: “I had a Boston Scientific Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted a few months ago, after failed surgical back syndrome, from surgery number 4. During my recovery I was given Robaxin 750. Though the implant was a huge success for me, the muscle spasms and skeletal pain were still there in places. The Robaxin makes my shoulders, and lower muscles feel so much better. I plan to ask my PCP to carry on with the medication. I see no problems since it's not an opioid, narcotic, or addicting. Some people it will help, and some it wont. I have had no side effects or reactions.”

Dorch November 15, 2017

For Muscle Spasm: “I have been taking this medication for about 3 months now, hoping something will change and it will start to help me, but it's not. I've also been taking ibuprofen along with it. But I still have a lot of pain. My right hip is so much worse then the left. All I want is relief. Even a little bit, I would rejoice.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I liked that I had no drowsiness on the medication it only helped with mild back spasms not moderate or severe spasms. I loved that it did help with Gastro intestinal spasms and diarrhea due to Crohns disease”

Do not use January 7, 2017

For Muscle Spasm: “I was prescribed Robaxin 750mg x 3 daily for muscle spasms via my pain management dr tho I wasn't aware I was having muscle spasm in my lower back. I had failed laminectomy L4/L5 with several back injections post to help with the pain. Nothing has worked. Was on NucyntaER and Oxy 7.5/325 3x daily -this worked beautifully. Dr changed oxy to 5mg & replaced Robaxin 750 x3. I only taken 3 and I have suffered multiple charlie horses in my legs and toes; my leg remains stiff and I am terrified more spasm activity. Already my quality of life has changed for the worse. I am afraid to continue this drug. This is the only thing that has changed and I never had spasms before! Why would I take more?”

Back! · Taken for less than 1 month August 9, 2016

For Muscle Spasm: “I have been prescribed robaxin 750mg from having back pains after getting epidural for child birth. It works okay. I'm suppose to take it every 4 hours or when aches return. I don't even have to look at the clock and can tell the 4 hours went by because the aches return. I wish I had something I don't have to take every 4 hours, just 12 instead. I have to make sure I have my pills with me, or I will be so miserable. My aches make me so dizzy because how bad they are.”

For Opiate Withdrawal: “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.”

PookaMama · Taken for less than 1 month December 16, 2014

For Muscle Spasm: “I am taking Robaxin 750 3 times a day post surgery. I had a 360 Lower Spinal Fusion done. Since taking this medicine I have had severe memory loss and confusion. I also keep dropping just about everything I have in my hands. It has done a great job of decreasing my horrible muscle spasms, but I don't believe I can take it any longer. It makes me loopy and unable to function! I'm going to speak to my doctor today about either changing its dose amount or to a different muscle relaxer.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I just had a two level lumbar fusion two weeks ago and have severe muscle spasms that started up a couple of days ago. When I needed the Robaxin to work, it's like taking a placebo. I've called the surgeons office for another option as this is not going to work for me.”

For Muscle Spasm: “I fell and fractured my shoulder back in March. I was originally given Flexeril 10mg did nothing, went back for more tests found out I have 2 extra cervical ribs and thoracic outlet syndrome. Robaxin 750mg 3x's a day doesn't really help me either. My pain level is a consistent 7 makes it hard to sleep.”

For Muscle Spasm: “Have muscle spasms in lower back. I've been prescribed Flexeril, Soma, and now Robaxin 750mg 3 x a day....along with Vicoprofen 3 x day as well. So far so good! Works way better for me than Flexeril. Didn't like the sedative effects of Soma. Take this and rest, for me it does the trick.”

For Muscle Spasm: “Does not cure it completely but cuts down the severe bouts of pain to a more manageable level. Can make falling asleep at night more difficult. No cost as in the UK on our NHS.”
