In case of accidental overdose: Contact a physician or poison control centre immediately, even if you do not notice any possible signs or symptoms such as increased sweating, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, blurred vision and loss of appetite.
Occupational Hazards: Until the potential for producing drowsiness and dizziness has been determined, the patient should be cautioned against the operation of motor vehicles or machinery.
Since methocarbamol may possess a general CNS depressant effect, patients receiving Robaxacet should be cautioned about combined effects with alcohol and other CNS depressants.
The most common complaints to methocarbamol are drowsiness, nausea and dizziness or lightheadedness (seen in approximately 4 to 5% of patients). The following reactions have been associated with the drug, some of them rarely; in some instances, causal relationships have not been established: headache, nasal congestion, blurred vision, rash, pruritus and urticaria.
Adverse reactions that have been associated with the use of acetaminophen include: nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Rarely, hypersensitivity reactions have been reported, as manifested by thrombocytopenic purpura, hemolytic anemia and agranulocytosis.
Gastrointestinal discomfort may be minimized by taking the dose with food.
