Yes: For sure this shouldn't be a problem. These are both favored before using medications in the opiate class or for muscle relaxation a more habit forming muscle relaxant such as VALIUM (diazepam) or any Benzodiazepine. Or worse yet SOMA (Carisaprodol). Most doctors don't even realize Soma is a pro-drug of Meprobamate (Euqnil, Milltown) a sedative used before bzds were around, highly addictive.

I agree, but both can cause some sedation in some people so just be aware of that

Use caution : Both may cause sedation. But Robaxin can be habit forming as it causes sedation and regular doses. Any medicine causing sedation can become habit forming in the prone person. High doses of gabapentin has been abused for the high. Standard of cars for muscle issues is NOT oral meds!!!
