Methocarbamol, or the brand name version Robaxin, is usually prescribed after a physical injury like a sprain, strain or other type of muscle injury. It relaxes the injured muscle, decreasing muscle pain and spasms. Methocarbamol is used along with rest and physical therapy to treat the injury. Since it's prescribed to help heal injured muscles, methocarbamol is usually only prescribed for about two to three weeks, and is generally not meant to be taken for a long period of time.
