Ardosons - What is it for?

Hi, I was today prescribed Ardosons for acute pain and inflammatory process of the joint on my middle right finger. I made it clear to the physician that I have blood high pressure and that I was subject to a cateterism on 2006 due to ischemic peripheral vessels. He recommended 1 capsule for four days (with meals) only, however I found that this drug is not indicated for people with blood high pressure and persons with a cardiac history. Could you please advise if I should have these pills or not? I would deeply appreaciate your advice. Best regards. ## I'm not sure what the FDA or American equivalent is of Ardosons. It seems this is typically a South American prescribed medication. It's also known as Artridol. I found that it contains Methocarbamol (muscle relaxant), Betamethas...

Methocarbamol 500mg h 114 for muscle spasms

A friend of mine has quit opiates and went through the withdrawal. Now he is having muscle spasms at night. Can he take Methocarbamol at night to get rid of the muscle spasms? Does he have to take them daily every 6 hours, or can he just take them at night when he needs it? ## Methocarbamol is in fact prescribed as a muscle relaxant, so theoretically it should help get rid of the muscle spasms. Now to what degree will it help, I cannot say... but medical journals state that Methocarbamol works by blocking pain sensations that would otherwise be sent to the brain. Because Methocarbamol is a prescription drug, only the prescribing doctor can advise your friend a proper dosing regimen. However some general guidelines can be found under a Google search for "Methocarbamol dosing". I ...
