|Description||Methocarbamol is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, used as a central muscle relaxant to treat skeletal muscle spasms.|
Methocarbamol is metabolized via dealkylation and hydroxylation followed by conjugation to form both glucuronides and sulfates. 
|In vivo||Methocarbamol results in a median terminal half-life, mean transit time, mean absorption time, and apparent oral clearance of 2.89 hours, 2.67 hours, 0.410 hours, and 16.5 mL/min/kg in the horse. Methocarbamol is rapidly absorbed and extensively metabolized after oral administration to horses as indicated by a short absorption time and modest systemic bioavailability of 54.4% in the horse.  Methocarbamol is a centrally acting muscle relaxant available in both IV and oral forms in cats.  Methocarbamol (100 mg/kg) does not change the heart rate, cardiac output, mean pulmonary arterial blood pressure, systolic, diastolic and mean aortic blood pressure, respiratory rate and arterial blood gases, but mild to moderate depression is observed in five of eight horses administered i.v. Methocarbamol, and in all horses administered oral Methocarbamol. Plasma Methocarbamol concentration declines very rapidly during the initial or rapid disposition phase after i.v. administration; the terminal elimination half-life ranged from 59 minutes to 90 minutes in horse. Peak plasma Methocarbamol concentrations following oral administration occur within 15 to 45 minutes in horse. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
