Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant Description

Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant is a prescription strength muscle relaxant that contains 500mg of Methocarbamol and 200mg of Ibuprofen that may be prescribed for the relief of muscle pain or spasms due to a sprain, strain, or other injury.

How Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant Works

Methocarbamol blocks pain sensations that are transmitted to your brain, which means that your brain doesn’t realize you have an injury so your muscles will not tense up or spasm. Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug, better known as an NSAID, that inhibits the production of prostaglandins in your body that are responsible for causing inflammation as a way to contain the area and begin the healing process.

Your nerve endings are sensitive to prostaglandins and they quickly send pain signals to your brain, except Methocarbamol has blocked the signals. The result is reduced inflammation and less pain. Your doctor may also recommend that Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant is taken along with rest and physical therapy to help exercise your muscles after an injury to regain motion or mobility.

Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant is Frequently Prescribed for Back Pain

Back pain is a common complaint and an estimated 80% of adults will experience at least one bout of it during their lifetime. The neck and back are two of the most vulnerable areas of the human body due to their structure. Reaching, bending, lifting, and carrying heavy objects puts a strain on the muscles as they are stretched to their limit and expected to support much more weight than they are accustomed to. The next thing you know, there’s a sharp pain and you are unable to stand or straighten up, your legs are unable to support your weight, or arms and shoulders have lost their strength. When your brain receives the message something is wrong, your immune system is the first responder.

Before You Take Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant

Ask your doctor if Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant is safe to take if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx medications you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements. This will allow your doctor to determine if Robax Platinum Muscle Relaxant is the right medicine for your situation. Some drugs can cause unexpected or increased side effects when combined with other meds or there could be a change in their efficacy.
