User Comments about Methocarbamol
02 Jan 2012 Did not seem to work at all for my condition. However, my condition was misdiagnosed muscle cramping, when I actually had shingles. Decreased mental clarity

05 Jun 2009 I took this to help ease and relax my back muscles after I pulled them lifting something. Other than some mild drowsiness, it was very effective in relieving my pain.
