Robinaxol is a muscle relaxant. The medication is manufactured by the Indian pharmaceutical company, Khandelwal Laboratories Pharmaceuticals. The medicine contains two active components – methocarbamol and acetaminophen.
Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant itself. It blocks nerve impulses sent to the patient’s brain. It has to be used together with physical therapy and rest for successful pain or trauma treatment.
Acetaminophen is a fever reducer and pain reliever. It treats a number of conditions, including headache, muscle pains, backache, arthritis, fevers, colds, and toothaches.
Thereby, Robinaxol is employed for the treatment of muscle spasms and pain relief caused by distention, malformation, and other injuries associated with muscles.
It is significant that you strictly follow all the instructions provided by your doctor, considering the use of Robinaxol. Due to the fact that the medication features combination of two active components, which alternate in their pharmacological action, dosage of the drug should be determined individually, depending on a number of factors, including age, symptoms, accompanying health problems, kidney or liver failure, etc. Make sure you inform your doctor of any medical conditions you’re in to avoid adverse reactions and get successful treatment via Robinaxol therapy.
You have to be cautious about the use of the drug, if you have are allergic to any of the drug’s components. It is not recommended to ignore this fact, because a severe allergy can cause anaphylactic shock, whose consequences can be very bad, even including a lethal outcome.
Furthermore, inform your physician if you’ve had any episodes of alcohol abuse or liver disease, before you start using the medication. Also, if you have myasthenia gravis, you should tell about it to your doctor, because this can be a strict contraindication, depending on a few other factors.
It is not known, if Robinaxol is harmful to an unborn baby. Therefore, before starting the treatment, it is essential that you tell your doctor, if you are pregnant. Although it is not known if methocarbamol passes into breast milk or if it can harm a nursing infant, acetaminophen clearly passes into breast milk and will definitely harm a nursing baby. Thus, you should tell your doctor, if you are breastfeeding a baby. Otherwise, do not use the drug.
Due to the presence of acetaminophen in the medication’s content, Robinaxol shouldn’t be given to a child younger than the age of 2 without doctor’s advice.
