Carisoprodol Overview

Carisoprodol, marketed under the brand name Soma among others, is a prescription drug marketed since 1959. It is a centrally acting skeletal muscle relaxant of the carbamate class and produces all the effects associated with barbiturates. It is a prodrug[2] and is both structurally and pharmacologically related to meprobamate.

carisoprodol-soma- need doctor to prescribe it!
36 Replies RSS
I've been taking soma / carisoprodol off and on for 22 years. When I first took it, I was told to take two 350 mg at bedtime, and it was too much and I nicknamed it Coma! Later I learned that when I first start taking soma after not taking it for a long time to only take 1/4 tab, or even a bit less. Later I can take more as needed, but starting out 1/4 or even 1/8th helps when I haven't take it for a very long time. Now I can't find a doctor who will prescribe it, I read as much as I could find and asked as many, doctors, pharmacists why, and they said various things, but it seemed to come down to the medicine has fallen out of favor because of abuse, "A considerable proportion of carisoprodol is metabolized to meprobamate" (from Wikipedia and that there is abuse.

Can different brands of carisoprodol work differently?
59 Replies RSS
I have been using soma/carisoprodol for many years. Usually the paharmacy gives me generic from Watson or Qaulitest. Last time I got the meds it was manufac. by Carimax. It didn't work as well. Do different brands work differently? ## Yes, there can be some differences in generic drugs, the FDA allows a window, of the active ingredient, of up to plus or minus 20% from the name brand product. This can cause variations, where you may, in some rare cases, receive less of a dosage than normal and it may not be as effective. ttp://www.medschat.com/wiki/Carisoprodol/ Do you have any other questions? ## Is there any way to tell by the brand names? That way I could avoid the lesser dosage. ## No, there really isn't, other than by your experience. I wish there was, it would make it easie...

What is a large unscored white pill with SG 109 on one side and blank on the other side ## Hello, Steven! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by SciGen Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 350mgs of Carisoprodol. The FDA classifies this medication as a muscle relaxant that is used to alleviate the pain associated with strains, sprains and spasms and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## This pill does nothing , must be stale - they do nothing. Hard ## This white round pill SG 109, labeled as "carisoprodol" is junk! I've taken SOMA for 15 years and have never ran into the problem of having them filled and not having the right medication. I believe this is one of two th...

muscle relaxant ## I am finding it listed as a muscle relaxant on several Spanish websites, but I cannot find a listing of what it contains.

So please help me figure out what AZ 266 round and white is I would so appreciate it. ## Hello, Maya! How are you? I'm sorry, but I've searched various resources over the past few days, but I can't find anything matching this description. It's possible that it might be an over the counter product.
