In brief: Muscle relaxants

Paracetamol (Tylenol) and Tramadol are a painkilling medication with no muscle relaxant effect.
They are often used in combination with muscle relaxant for short and long-term use. Included in the category of muscle relaxants are carisoprodol, methocarbamol, metaxalone and cyclobenzaprine. Because muscle relaxants also have a sedative effect, they used at bedtime.
