I was on Robaxin for a muscle pain that I began having after I had gallbladder surgery,I did'nt did'nt get much relief useing it, I have been suffering with this right side abdominal pain for the last 2 years, have been on flexeril, robaxin,skelaxin, then yesterday went to a pain specialist who proceeded to inject my right shoulder, and shoulder blade muscles with about 9 injections of lidocaine with a steriod to try and help my pain it helped for about 8 hours he told me when the shot wore off that I'd be in more pain than when I got there to see him, which I was, so I'm back to taking percocet and a new muscle relaxer called Baclofen, does anyone know anything about this muscle relaxer? Also does anyone have any help or suggestions as to why I cannot get relief from this pain and what do you all think it might be caused from? Thanks

First off, let me state that Methocarbamol and Robaxin are the SAME THING! Methocarbamol is the actual drug and Robaxin was just a brand name for it.

For this particular pill, KJ is correct in saying that this is Methocarbamol, because this is a GENERIC, not the name brand.

Now, JA, in response to your post. Having pain this long after surgery is not normal, and while I am not a medical professional, just a researcher, I can only theorize on what is wrong, but it does sound to me like you may be suffering from some type of nerve damage or perhaps nerves that have become hyper-sensitive. While this is not a very common occurence after surgery, it does happen occasionally.

This could also explain why the muslce relaxants have not helped. Since muscle relaxants are designed to work strictly on muscles and not just act generally in body like regular pain relievers, they will not help if something else, non-muscular related, is causing your pain.

After 2 years of this and trying these various meds with no relief, I would ask your doctor about seeing a neurologist or other doctor who can test for nerve damage and help you find what really will help you.

As to the Baclofen, this is NOT new, it has been out since the FDA first approved it in 1988.

Here's the link to the monograph for more information on it:


I would like to add, however, the Skelaxin is the strongest muscle relaxant available in pill form. I don't know what dosage you tried, it is available in 2, a 400mg tablet and an 800mg tablet, but if it didn't help, then chances are slim that Baclofen will help.

white oblong pill; V on one side, 4212 on other side. All the other internet sources say methocarbamal is a lite orange pill with robaxin also printed on it?

I understand that the white pill with V 4212 is the generic for Robaxin, which I guess is orange. I never wasted my money to buy the Robaxin when V 4212 is identical and cheaper. Robaxin could have a heffalump stamped on it and I won't know.
