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 (like mucines), and which some people believe helps in fibromyalgia. It is derived from the guaiac tree.

I was recently prescribed Robaxin for muscle tension due to serious stress. I have come to find that it's benefitting much more. I have MS and chronic lymes and I am always in constant pain. But now I have noticed that I actually have brief periods of zero pain! It could also be from the vicodin, but i was already on that for several months. So I say it's the Robaxin that is giving the much needed relief from the pain.
Oh, yeah, and sorry, no, it is non narcotic, but you should wait to see how it effects you personally. Like me, I can't take benadryl and drive. dilaudid, oxy, methadone, cyboxin, I am fine, but one little benadryl and I feel unsafe on the road. Good luck
I thought that neurontin worked much more effectively for my particular pain. I had 4 pounds of flesh and muscle debrieded from my leg after a spider bite
