Different meds: They are different medications. Both are listed as "muscle relaxants" but they are really both mild sedatives. One is an antihistamine and one metabolizes to a drug called Meprobamate which is a barbituate medication. As far as their effectiveness that is harder to say. One may work well for one person and the other may not work or cause side effects and vice versa. Not my favorite medications.
