    Jatelka EDIT: Please be aware that the earlier posts in this thread are from before the whole "No self incrimination" thing came into play

    When I went to pick up my scripts from the pain clinic, there was a new one in the pack. It's for an old fashioned (the bottle it came in listed 'Vintage Pharmacuticals as the manufacturer)muscle relaxant. There's nothing about it it on Erowid, and looking it up on the internet, I can only find about a paragraph on it anywhere that says 'Skeletal muscle relaxant'. Asked the nurse who gave me the scripts, and she said that Doc wanted me to try these out along with my narcs. Brand name is Robaxin, generic methocarbonal. They're big white horse pills. Is there any recreational use of this stuff? Two 500 mg make me feel kind of rubbery. Any way to alter or make a good cocktail?

    Methocarbamol

    SWIM BLA BLA BLA


    pills Methocarbam/ 66|101 are these just normal ole' muscle relaxers, or something worth a damn to SWIM. I dont like muscle relaxers for the most part because I think they are weak. Would SWIM be interested in these.


    sorry im in a obnoxious mood

    My Grandpa has the same stuff. It is for serious pain, but I bet with a stiff drink the effects might be more trippy. I don't know how safe it is though. You don't think two pills and a beer would kill someone do you? what do ya think? (i don't know how many mgs that is, the pill says west-ward 292) ??

    Back when I was in high school, many moons ago, one morning I woke up with one helluva neckache. Couldn't move my head from one side to another 'cause I slept wrong. My dr prescribedRobaxin, I think it was 500mg per pill...totally loosened up the neck. I felt totally loopy.Keep in mind I was only 14 or 15 and had no tolerance for anything back then.

    I have never heard of that drug. It had no effects, you say? I'm going to look this one up, I can't believe i've never heard of it. Did it even make you drowsy?

    If you still have them, I have found that Robaxin has a good synergy with opiates and alcohol (be very very careful please), I first discovered this after I was given them after a car wreck.

    Methocarbamol

    Ok, this is the stuff in robaxacet extra strength OTC back pain releiver, it is a muscle relaxant. I noticed other muscle relaxants had some recreational effects, and thought this one was worth at least searcning on. I did that and all it said is it has sedative properties. Is it possible this has some form of high this can give, similar to the muscle relaxants that give benzo-like effects?.

    I guess im left to answer my own question once again. I found this link...http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=2703967&dopt=Abstract

    This quote is taken right from the last scentence of the paragraph.

    "The results indicate that methocarbamol, at doses well above those used therapeutically, has some potential to be abused by persons with histories of sedative/hypnotic abuse; however, this potential for abuse is probably decreased by the accompanying side effects at high doses and is probably less than that of lorazepam."

    I am thinkin about trying it out on his guinea pigs tonight.

    I am prescribed robaxin for SWIM's TMJ. I found that if you take 4-5 at once (preferably washed down with a beer) you get a nice head buzz. They've also helped SWIM come down from uppers!

    Robaxin (Methocarbamol) is an aromatic glycerol ether and is indicated as an adjunct in acute painful musculoskeletal conditions. It is a relaxant which is thought to work via CNS depression (ie: it's sedative effect). It has no direct action on the contractile activity of skeletal muscle.

    As it possesses CNS depressant activity You should think twice about combining it with other CNS depressants (including alcohol, opiates and benzos).

    Therapeutic dose is: 1.5 g 4 times daily

    Adverse effects include:

    Nausea, vomiting, dyspepsia; hypersensitivity reactions (including urticaria, angioedema, anaphylaxis); fever, headache, drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, amnesia, restlessness, anxiety, tremor, seizures; blurred vision, nasal congestion; rash, pruritus; leucopenia, and cholestatic jaundice.

    It is not thought to be addicting.

    Re: Robaxin anyone?

    Well they're very good at what they're supposed to do, also they're fine in combo with opiates since I was prescribed that and vicodin today and told to take both together before bed. I'm sure alcohol is a different story though. I took 10mg of Hydro and 750 mg of Robaxin a bit ago and I feel fantastic though. Score: Me-1, Severe Back Pain-0. Oh also to the starter of this thread 3-15 minute wait before redosing!!!! Do you know anything about absorbtion?
