Metocarbamol Drug Information

Metocarbamol is used to treat spasms and chronic muscle spasms. Prolonged (chronic) muscle stiffness and cramps occur in diseases such as multiple sclerosis and other diseases that cause damage to muscle nerves. In muscle spasm, the muscles contract and shorten, making them difficult to work with. Metocarbamol prevents muscle spasm by relaxing muscles, and by this mechanism prevents pain and irritation.
