This product is employed in the treatment of muscle spasm and pain. Methocarbamol aids in muscle relaxation. Ibuprofen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), assists in reducing pain and swelling.

Uses and Dosage

Follow your doctor’s instructions when taking this medication orally, with or without food. Take the medication with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

Refrain from lying down for at least 10 minutes after ingestion. If you experience stomach upset, consider taking the medication with food or milk.

Avoid increasing your dose or using it more frequently or for longer than prescribed, as it won’t hasten improvement and may heighten the risk of side effects.

Dosage depends on your medical condition and response to treatment. To minimize the risk of stomach bleeding and other adverse effects, use this medication at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration possible.

If you’re taking this drug “as needed” (not on a regular schedule), it’s most effective when used at the onset of pain symptoms. Delaying treatment until symptoms worsen may diminish its efficacy.

Inform your doctor if your condition deteriorates or persists for more than 5 days.
