No, the muscle relaxant Methocarbamol has not been known to cause weight gain.

However, what does frequently happen when someone is taking it is that they tend to become more sedentary, due to the pain of whatever injury or problem required the muscle relaxant, so they tend to gain weight due to that and may not even realize that's what has happened.

Learn more Methocarbamol details here.

Most people in pain tend to be less active than they were when healthy and, in that case, weight gain is normal, especially if they still take in as many calories as they were before.

And yes it may cause other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness and dry mouth.

Are there any other questions that I can help with?
