Robaxin is indicated as an adjunct to rest, physical therapy, and other measures for the relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.
Take Robaxin exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
- Do not take it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended.
- Take Robaxin with a full glass of water.
- Robaxin can be taken with or without food.
- If you miss a dose of Robaxin, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.
Six grams a day are recommended for the first 48 to 72 hours of treatment. (For severe conditions 8 grams a day may be administered). Thereafter, the dosage can usually be reduced to approximately 4 grams a day.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Robaxin.
Store Robaxin at controlled room temperature, between 20°C and 25°C (68°F and 77°F). Dispense in tight container. Keep Robaxin out of the reach of children.
