Approved drug
methocarbamol is an approved drug (FDA (1957))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Methocarbamol is the carbamate of guaifenesin, but the carbamate bond is not metabolically hydrolysed, so guaifenesin is not a metabolite of methocarbamol. Methocarbamol has reduced abuse potential compared to other carbamate drugs such as meprobamate and its prodrug carisoprodol.
