In brief: Muscule Relaxant

Methocarbamol (trade name robaxin, (methocarbamol) which is marketed by actient pharmaceuticals in the United States and pfizer in canada) is a central muscle relaxant used to treat skeletal muscle spasms.
Because of potential for side-effects, this drug is considered to be a high-risk medication for the elderly.
