I'm on Methacarbamol just now, I take 6 a day and I haven't had any problems like you have described. :???: I've been on them for a few months. I don't remember anything about breast tenderness in the wee booklet that came with my pills. I take painkillers as well as the muscle relaxants and I have a lot of problems with side effects from my Tylex tablets.

I'll go and have a look at the side effects info on the Methathingies for you right now. Back in a minute. :squeeze:

Okay I've had a look at the leaflet that I got with my tablets and I don't know if this will be any help or if you have a copy yourself.

If any of the following effects are troublesome, you should tell your doctor: restlessness, anxiety or worry,dizziness, feeling sick or vomiting, tremor or shakiness.

If you notice any of the following rare symptoms, you should stop taking the tablets and call your doctor immediately: Confusion, convulsions, fits and rash or swelling about the face or neck and shortness of breath which may be a sign of allergy.

This doesn't really relate to the problem you are experiencing but you could I suppose be allergic, I don't know :???: Could it be a symtom of something else, maybe PMS and it was just a coincedence. I'm sorry I can't help more :( I hope you feel better soon. :squeeze:

Just realized that I am also on this med (only as needed... Dr gave me four different meds to play around with, and I use this one only once in a while). Thankfully I didn't get any nasty reactions to it. I hope you are feeling better Michelle!
