    Robaxin

    Went to see an oral surgeon for pain in my jaw area, he prescribed me Robaxin. I didn't even fill the prescription because upon Googling it, it sounds like some stuff I shouldn't be taking. Will I still be allowed to exercise the privileges of my Class 2, if I take Robaxin?

    Midwest ATC 401k Question

    Does anybody know if Midwest contributes or matches any money toward our 401k? I've been checking my 401K on the Transamerica Retirement website, but can't see if Midwest contributes any $ toward it. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't, but just wanted to know. Thanks in advance for any info.
