Hi there, can you tell me if robaxin is a narcotic?
No, its not. Robaxin (or methocarbamol) is a central nervous system depressant (as are narcotic medications) and a muscle relaxant but it does not have addictive properties. It's actually a derivative of guaifenesin, which is found in many cough and cold remedies, and which some people believe helps in fibromyalgia. It is derived from the guaiac tree.
