A 46-year-old female asked:

Safe: There's no specific negative interaction between Robaxin and Ibuprofen. Just curious, but have you tried alternating Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen? Robaxin is a muscle relaxant and it can have sedative like effects. So you might get dizzy or drowsy on it. Other common sense things to try are a hot water bottle applied to the lower abdomen and rest.
