oblong gray and white pill p449

I was wondering what this pill is used for? It is oblong, gray on one side and white on the other. The number on the pill is p449 and the number is on the gray side. It is not a capsule. ## I am almost 100% sure this is Robax Platinum (500mg methocarbamol, 200 mg Ibuprofin) I use these for muscle strains and they really do a good job at easing the pain without making you feel "loopy". ## Jenny may be right, as I have come across a small pill image of Robax Platinum depicting a half white, half gray oblong pill associated with their product packaging. However I also noticed a score line on the pill and it wasn't clear enough to determine what the markings were (if any).

Flexim plus tablet uses

Is it a good treatment for arthritis pain? ## I am feeling back pain and body so I need pain medication for my RA . ## According to a related thread about Flexim Plus, this medicine contains "Paracetamol, Diclofenac and Methocarbamol, so it is a muscle relaxant and pain reliever." ## Hello Corline young McKnight, Reportedly flexim contains Methocarbamol and acetaminophen. The methocarbamol acts as a muscle relaxant and a central nervous system depressant while the acetaminophen acts as an anti-inflammatory and pain killer. It is important to understand that while this medicine can help relieve the pain of your arthritis it will not in any way aid in curing the underlying problems. I wasn't able to find the drug schedule of this medicine in Jamaica and thus I can only recomme...
