soma dangers and overdose
49 Replies RSS
could someone tell me if a person takes soma, can they overdose? my best friend im afraid is addicted and going to end up dead. ## of course your friend could overdose. But I would not worry as long as they aren't taking like 7 or 8 a day unless they are mixing it with much heavier drugs ## YES, YOU NEED TO BE VERY VERY WORRIED. I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THE BATTLE OF ADDICTION TO SOMA FOR MANY YEARS. IT IS SO ADDICTIVE ALOT OF DOCS DO NOT USE AT ALL. IT IS INSANELY ADDICTIVE. I HAD 5 DUI'S ON SOMA AND COUNTLESS OVERDOSES AND HAVING MY STOMACH PUMPED. YOU DONT HAVE TO MIX IT TO DIE BUT IT DOES HELP ## Yes Cindy is correct. The simple fact of the matter is that our bodies can become addicted to anything we use or take regularly for a prolonged period of time, anything from your mornin...

muscle relaxer that's most like soma
2 Replies RSS
I have been on soma for about eight years. It really is the only muscle relaxer to really help. But recently most all doctors here in Georgia have stopped prescribing them. Do you know why this would be and are there any other muscle relaxers that may be similar to soma? ## The laws were changed a few years ago and Soma was made a controlled substance. You will find better medicine in the Muscle Relaxer family although it will not feel like Soma does ## There is really none comparable, it was the strongest one available. I've done well with both Flexeril and Skelaxin, but they may not work as well for you. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Cyclobenzaprine and Dexamethasone
1 Reply RSS
Can I take cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer) and dexamethasone (steroid) together? I'm prescribed a round of steroids for migraines and a muscle relaxer to help with muscle / back problems. ## I didn't find any interactions listed, but it is always best to double check. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications?

baclofen for pain?
2 Replies RSS
I have DDD, scoliosis, which is serious, have herniations and bulging discs in cervical spine and also in lumbar spine. I can't walk without cane. I went to doc today and she gave me a small dose of baclofen,5 mg bid. Will this help my pain? I am taking generic oxycodone 30 mg every 4-6 hours as needed. I used to take oxycontin 20 mg, up to 5 times a day, it worked very well, but I can't take this now, because my medicare will not pay for it. ## Baclofen is a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. It is used to treat the pain associated with muscle strains and spasms. However, the only way to see how it will work for you is by trying it. Have you experienced any benefits, yet? ## Thanks for your r...

Is zanaflex like xanax?
1 Reply RSS
A friend of mine took this zanaflex saying it was the same as xanax, just with muscle relaxers in it. I personally don't have a clue so i figured i'd ask. ## No, they are not the same. Zanaflex contains the active ingredient Tizanidine, which is just a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Xanax, however, is a benzodiazepine, it contains the active ingredient Alprazolam. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, sedation, and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Flexeril drug test
32 Replies RSS
Flexeril absolutely does show up on a drug screen as an anti-deppressent. Anyone who says otherwise should not be commenting on something that they know nothing about ## Why would flexeril show up as an anti-depressant? Flexeril is not an anti-depressant. ## No it does not.I've been taking them for awhile and never failed a drug test for urine or hair follicle. so u are right don't talk about.something u know nothing about. ## I'm an RN in the ER and we do test for tricyclic antidepressants for the reason that it is a group of prescription medications that can alter your mentation and are often abused, including flexeril. It doesn't mean people who take flexeril are in fact abusing it, but that they should have script for it. ## It can cause false positives IF antidepres...

New Orleans Pain Dr.

Hi I'm looking for a pain management doctor in New Orleans/Westbank/etc area. I'm 27 and some places I called only accepts 35+. My Doc of 6yrs has cancer, so he transferred his patients. I recently found a Doc, but he doesn't prescribe soma, and reduced my pain meds. I rather just find a Doc in my area, than drive to BR each month for less meds. Thanks. ## Many Doctors do not like to prescribe Soma. You are also taking Pain Meds too? As you know pain medicine and Soma go together. Doctors know this too. Now that Soma a Schedule IV medication, you will find it harder to obtain. Still possible. ## Hi, Honey! I'm very sorry about the problems you're having. Unfortunately, even if I researched doctors for you in that area, I have no way of knowing what age or type of pat...

Just received my refill of soma 350mg but they look different than the ones I am used to getting from the same pharmacy. No read out was put in the bag. The white round pill had a SG 109 on one side & blank on the other side. Anybody ever heard of these before? Because, since there was no print out of the new different medication I was a little worried, "what if the pharmacist made a little error in mine & somebody else's medications". Thanks for any feedback. ## Errors are made every day but these pills have been identified as Soma ## That is correct, they are manufactured by ScieGen Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 350mgs of Carisoprodol, which is a generic for Soma.

Methocarbamol 500mg h 114 for muscle spasms
1 Reply RSS
A friend of mine has quit opiates and went through the withdrawal. Now he is having muscle spasms at night. Can he take Methocarbamol at night to get rid of the muscle spasms? Does he have to take them daily every 6 hours, or can he just take them at night when he needs it? ## Methocarbamol is in fact prescribed as a muscle relaxant, so theoretically it should help get rid of the muscle spasms. Now to what degree will it help, I cannot say... but medical journals state that Methocarbamol works by blocking pain sensations that would otherwise be sent to the brain. Because Methocarbamol is a prescription drug, only the prescribing doctor can advise your friend a proper dosing regimen. However some general guidelines can be found under a Google search for "Methocarbamol dosing". I ...

Have you changed anything in your diet, either the food you're eating, or beverages? The bubbles sound like they may be due to gas, but there are many things that could be causing the diarrhea.
