Relaxant (Overview)

A relaxant generally refers to a pharmaceutical that either relieves muscles tension or spasm (e.g. Robaxin, (methocarbamol) soma), relieves anxiety and helps one relax (such as xanax). One can become dependent on anti-anxiety medications when used for prolonged periods of time, high dosages used. These drugs must be managed by a medical professional, and if taking for months, should not be abruptly stopped.
