Whether or not Methocarbamol will show up on a drug test is something that many seem to debate over. Some suggest that the drug is not one that is typically tested for. This means that when a drug test is taken it will not acknowledge the existence of Methocarbamol in the system because the test is actually looking for other drugs.

Alternatively, others suggest that the drug will show up in a test. These results may vary depending on the drug tester and the consequences of Methocarbamol showing up in a drug test, again, will be dependent on the circumstances. If the drug is being taken for genuine reasons then there should be no concern about it showing up on a drug test.

  • Methocarbamol Information.
Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant that works by blocking the nerve impulses that are sent to the brain. The drug does not have a direct effect on the muscle and can be used in addition to physical therapy and rest to treat skeletal muscle conditions. Typically the dosage of Methocarbamol is reduced after two to three days and will need to be taken strictly in accordance to the doctor's instruction.
  • Methocarbamol side effects.
There can be a number of side effects experienced by taking Methocarbamol. If any serious side effects are experienced such as a slow heart rate, jaundice or seizures, immediately medical help will need to be sought. Some of the milder side effects that can occur due to taking Methocarbamol include; dizziness, nausea, headaches, memory problems, blurred vision, sleep problems and stuffy nose. If any of these symptoms worsen or last for an unusually long time, a doctor should be consulted.

Whether or not Methocarbamol shows up on a drug test is circumstantial. If the drug has been administered by a doctor then there will be no problem with it appearing in the results.
