Big white capsules bought on Mexico & was told they were soma's, which I have taken off & on for 22 yrs. can someone please tell me if they are soma's? I am having severe muscle spasms & need to know. Thank you! ## Ive got a prescription in a small purple box that has carbafen 350/400 mgs on it that come from Mexico. My question is this medicine generic brand soma are not. They are round big white pills with only a line on one side?

However, my opinion is that if you can't even trust the vibes of who you got it from...

Where is this medicine/pill manufactured? What country is v-cariso manufactured? ## Hi Diann, hope you're doing well. Am I correct in assuming that V-Cariso stands for a brand of Carisoprodol? (muscle relaxer)... Second, would you happen to have any packaging which lists the manufacturer name on it? That might help to track down their place of manufacturing. Any other details would be helpful!

carisoprodol-soma- need doctor to prescribe it!
5 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. I ...

Medicine comparison

Which medicine is stronger DAN 5513 or BAC 832? ## The tablet with the marking 5513 DAN is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 350mgs of Carisoprodol. The tablet with the marking BAC 832 is manufactured by Upsher-Smith and they list it as being a 10mg Baclofen tablet. The FDA classifies both of these as muscle relaxants, but the Carisoprodol is more potent. The typical side effects of muscle relaxants may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

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. As a group, though, muscle relaxants generally cause such side effects as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache.
