Methocarbamol

« Back to Glossary Index

Methocarbamol isn’t a narcotic. It’s a central nervous system (CNS) depressant and muscle relaxant used to treat muscle spasms, tension, and pain. It may be mistaken for a narcotic due to side effects like drowsiness and dizziness, which can feel like a drug “high.”

Methocarbamol is considered a supplementary medication in the treatment of opioid or opiate withdrawal. It targets specific symptoms, such as muscle cramps and spasms.

It can be taken alongside Suboxone, a combination drug that’s effective in treating opioid addiction.

Some research suggestsTrusted Source that taking methocarbamol or other ancillary medications doesn’t have an impact on treatment outcomes.

Also, although anecdotal reports exist, there isn’t any recent research investigating the effectiveness of using methocarbamol alone to treat opioid withdrawal.

Unlike other carbamates such as meprobamate and its prodrug carisoprodol, methocarbamol has greatly reduced abuse potential.

Methocabamol is a Prescription Only (Rx) drug in the US.
