Methocarbamol is considered a supplementary medication in the treatment of opioid or opiate withdrawal. It targets specific symptoms, such as muscle cramps and spasms.
It can be taken alongside Suboxone, a combination drug that’s effective in treating opioid addiction.
Some research suggests that taking methocarbamol or other ancillary medications doesn’t have an impact on treatment outcomes.
Also, although anecdotal reports exist, there isn’t any recent research investigating the effectiveness of using methocarbamol alone to treat opioid withdrawal.
