Is robaxin a steroid?
Is methocarbamol (robaxin) a steroid or anti-depressant? I started using it two months ago in Apr 2013 and I am experiencing severe mood swings. The two things that cause me mood swings is IM, IV, or oral steroids or any type of anti-depressant. I'm becoming reclusive, angry and noncommunicative. This happens every time I'm exposed to either drug category. I know depressants can also cause these side effects, but I've had lots of those without side effects whereas I've never taken one of the aforementioned without them. Thx! ## No, Robaxin/Methocarbamol is just a muscle relaxant, but mood changes are warned about in the monograph as being a potential serious side effect. Thus, you should most likely stop taking it and contact your doctor as soon as possible. It seems it ... ...

Allergy type symptoms with Butrans
I started Butrans 10 on 4/30. Had amazing relief. I felt better than I had in years. I caught a cold around April 20th. Went straight to my chest. My Dr thought I had walking pneumonia and started me on a course of steroids and antibiotics. 10 days later, no improvement, chest xray clear but wheezing and heavy with breathing. Dr. gave another round of steroids and antibiotics. This past weekend, I started to feel like a brand new cold came on me. Severe head congestion, terrible cough, the works. I went to urgent care. That Dr. told me it was allergy related. He gave a decadron shot, Z pak, started me on Zyrtec, albuterol inhaler. Today is the first day I have started to feel a little better. My question is this, could this possibly be from the patch? I seems a little coincidental that ... ...

Is there a pain specialist that can control my pain without making out like I'm seeking drugs? I've done everything except surgery. The surgery would be extensive. 8 hour surgery with intensive rehab. I'm tiered of trying to get the steroid shots because they can not do them as frequently as I need.

I've had scoliosis for almost 30 year s. I did well managing the pain without anything until I started working with violent students.

Caused spike in blood pressure
I have Eosinaphilic Gastroenteritis and started slow on Medrol due to past experience with high dose Prednisone causing high blood pressure. After taking 4mg Medrol my BP was 149/99 within 12 hours. I am 33 very fit and work out regularly, I have no other health issues. Why would steroids cause such a drastic spike in BP? There aren't a lot of treatment options for my condition so I'm trying to figure out why this is happening. ## Hello, Mike! How are you? It's just due to the nature of how they work in the body, all steroids/hormones can cause blood pressure elevation. I've actually found that I had the least amount of issues with Prednisone, myself. However, 149/99 isn't really a drastic spike, that's only about mid-range. Have you consulted your doctor? You ma... ...
