Ortoton review

Ortoton is a brand name for methocarbamol, and is a muscle relaxant. It is used to relax certain muscles in the body, relieving stiffness, discomfort, and pain and to treat spasms. Ortoton is not to be used in the place or other treatments, such as rest, exercise, physical therapy, or any other course of treatment that your doctor recommends. It acts on the central nervous system, which in turn signals to the muscles the desired effect. It is administered in tablets.

Ortoton can cause several side effects, including fainting, runny or stuffy nose, fast or slow heartbeat, burning eyes, fever, skin rash with itching or redness, swelling on face, eyelids, mouth, lips, or tongue, shortness of breath or other breathing difficulties, tightness in chest or wheezing. You might also experience the rare side effects of blood in your urine, jaundiced eyes or skin, blood or black stools, vomiting of blood or of material that looks like coffee grounds, cough, unusual bruising or bleeding, hoarseness, unusual tiredness or weakness, lower back or side pain, swollen or painful glands, sore throat, fever, irregular breathing, pain, tenderness or swelling over a vein, red spots on the skin, puffiness or swelling around the eyes, sores, ulcers or white spots on the lips, or painful or difficult urination. Other rare side effects can include stomach cramps, unsteadiness, confusion, constipation, trouble sleeping, trembling, diarrhea, seizures, memory problems, excitement or nervousness, nausea or vomiting, flushing, heartburn, headache, hiccups, or muscle weakness. In addition to the above rare effects, Ortoton might turn your urine orange, purple, black, brown or green. This is a harmless effect that should soon fade. More common side effects include blurred or double vision, or any change in vision, drowsiness, or dizziness.

Because of the common side effects of drowsiness and dizziness, you should be careful to ascertain whether Ortoton does indeed cause these effects when you are taking it. If it does, you should avoid driving, operating machinery, or any other exercise that requires mental or physical alertness. In addition, because Ortoton depresses the central nervous system, you should also be very careful about using alcohol or other substances that depress the central nervous system. You should also let your doctor know if you are taking Mestinon, Aricept, Reminyl, Exelon, or Cognex, as these medications can react badly with Ortoton and may need to be adjusted. You should also not start a new medication, either prescription or over-the-counter, without consulting your doctor.

Orton is in Pregnancy Category C, which means it is not known whether it will cause harm to a pregnancy or to a developing fetus, but no studies on humans have been done. Therefore, you should be very careful in taking Ortoton if you are pregnant, and make sure that the benefits outweigh any possible risks. Ortoton is known to pass into breast milk, and has been shown to cause drowsiness and upset stomach in nursing babies.
