255 es oblong with split white and green ## I would like to know the risk and side effects to 255 es oblong split white and green pill. ## Hello, I found a match for these pills.

Robaxin/Methocarbamol and hot flashes

I had a bilateral mastectomy a month ago and have been taking methocarbamol for one month every 8 hours. In the last week I'm only taking it at bedtime. The only other meds I'm taking is 4 Advil at the same time. I a suffering from bad night sweats. Could it be caused by the methocarbamol? ## I am also experiencing night sweats while taking methocarbamol. I found that it was listed as one of the less common side effects. ## Hello Natalie, Yes according to the National Institute of Health it is a listed side effect of methocarbamol to have flushing (warmth, tingling feeling, hot flashes) as well as insomnia. With these two combined I can see how it is difficult for you to get adequate sleep. I hope this information helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Also, can pain medication be taken with robaxin? ## Have these medications been prescribed for you? Adco-Dol is listed as containing Codeine, Caffeine, Doxylamine, and Paracetamol.

robaxin Vs Flexeril

Robaxin 500mg compaired to Flexeril 10mg, are they considered the same strength or which one is stronger? ## Robaxin contains the active ingredient Methocarbamol and Flexeril contains Cyclobenzaprine. The Flexeril is generally much more mild, so 10mgs of it would not be equal to the 800mg dosage of Robaxin. Have you been switched from one to the other? ## soma vs. flexeril, WITCH IS STRONGER ## got it and thanks ## I was given Robaxin for my rotar cuff shoulder. I had problems with Robaxin.

adcoalzam robaxin

I have severe shoulder blade pain. My pharmacist gave me robaxin to relax the musckes, i am taking 1mg adco alzam at night for insomnia.

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 ...

What Is Robaxin

I have a bugling disc for which I am taking fentanyl 25mcg and hydrocodone, but I am still in a great deal of pain that makes me cry. The pain is in my leg and thigh. I have had one series of 3 shots in my back with no relief. Would robaxin help? The pain is so bad. ## Robaxin contains the active ingredient Methocarbamol, it is a muscle relaxant, so it's really only going to help with pain that's due to muscle spasms, or strains. Has your doctor advised you to use it? ## Does robaxin 750mg have anti-inflammatory properties? Is it equivalent to prednisone 10mg?
