    Orphenadrine relieves muscle pain by relaxing tight muscles. It is usually taken by mouth but can be injected into an injured muscle, though it may also be injected into a vein. When the affected muscles relax, spasms may lessen, allowing you to move normally and relieving pain and stiffness.

    Orphenadrine is often used in conjunction with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen. Physical therapy and rest may help injured muscles heal while using orphenadrine.
