Methacarbamol is a skeletal muscle relaxant with an unknown mechanism of action.5 Methacarbamol has been shown to block spinal polysynaptic reflexes, decrease nerve transmission in spinal and supraspinal polysynaptic pathways, and prolong the refractory period of muscle cells.5,4 Methocarbamol does not act as a local anesthetic upon injection.4 In animal studies, methocarbamol also prevents convulsions after electric shock.5
- Mechanism of action
The mechanism of action of methocarbamol is thought to be dependant on its central nervous system depressant activity.3 This action may be mediated through blocking spinal polysynaptic reflexes, decreasing nerve transmission in spinal and supraspinal polysynaptic pathways, and prolonging the refractory period of muscle cells.5,4 Methocarbamol has been found to have no effect on contraction of muscle fibres, motor end plates, or nerve fibres.9
Target Actions Organism NCarbonic anhydrase 1inhibitor Humans
The time to maximum concentration is 1.1 hours for both healthy patients and those on hemodialysis.1 The maximum plasma concentration is 21.3mg/L for healthy patients and 28.7mg/L in hemodialysis patients.1 The area under the curve for healthy patients is 52.5mg/L*hr and 87.1mg/L*hr in hemodialysis patients.1 AUC% based on terminal elimination half life is 2% for healthy patients and 4% for hemodialysis patients.1
Older studies report maximum plasma concentrations in 0.5 hours.2
- Volume of distribution
Volume of distribution data in humans is scarce. In horses, the volume of distribution is 515-942mL/kg at steady state or 724-1130mL/kg.5
- Protein binding
Methocarbamol is 46-50% protein bound in healthy patients and 47.3-48.9% protein bound in hemodialysis patients.1
Methocarbamol is metabolized in the liver by demethylation to 3-(2-hydroxyphenoxy)-1,2-propanediol-1-carbamate or hydroxylation to 3-(4-hydroxy-2-methoxyphenoxy)-1,2-propanediol-1-carbamate.2 Methocarbamol and its metabolites are conjugated through glucuronidation or sulfation.2

- Route of elimination
In humans the majority of the dose is eliminated in the urine.2 In dogs, 88.85% of the dose is eliminated in urine and 2.14% in the feces.2 In rats, 84.5-92.5% of the dose is eliminated in the urine and 0-13.3% is eliminated in the feces.2
- Adverse Effects
Learn about our commercial Adverse Effects data.Learn More
Overdose of methocarbamol may be associated with alcohol and other central nervous system depressants.Label Patients may experience nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, hypotension, seizures, and coma.Label Treatment of overdose is generally through airway maintenance, monitoring urinary output, vital signs, and giving fluid intravenously if necessary.Label
The oral LD50 in rats is 3576.2mg/kg.10
The FDA has classified methocarbamol as pregnancy category C.Label Animal and human studies have not been performed to determine the risks to a fetus, however fetal and congenital abnormalities have been reported.Label Methocarbamol is excreted in the milk of dogs, however it is unknown if this is also the case for humans.Label Caution should be exercised when taking methocarbamol while breastfeeding.Label
Studies to assess the carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, or effects on fertility of methocarbamol have not been performed.Label
