My boyfriend is currently "kicking" heroin and has to drug test for probation. Will methocarbamol show up if he is tested?

In brief: Drug testing

Good for him for dealing with an addiction.
Okay to ask the drug testing center your question about methocarbamol. Okay to encourage your boyfriend to tell the testing center he is taking this medication. Be well.

In brief: Methocarbamol

No. Methocarbamol (Robaxin) is a muscle relaxer used to treat skeletal muscle spasms.
It is not addictive and it is not a controlled substance. Therefore, it is unlikely that the authorities will be testing for methocarbamol.

In brief: Robaxin (methocarbamol)

Methocarbamol, a muscle relaxant, is not considered a commonly abused or illicit drug and is not usually tested for. However, it's better to inform the tester that the person tested is taking it.
