A 34-year-old male asked:

If i took robaxin (methocarbamol) 15 hours ago, is it ok to take hydroxyzine now? how much time do i need to take between each one?

Ok together: The major concern is the potentially additive drowsiness effect from taking both drugs at the same time. However Robaxin (methocarbamol) causes sedation in just a small number of people. If you want to be ultra safe, allow a gap of 4 hours . If you are going to bed anyway, I don't see the need for waiting.
