re: white round pill with AZ 266 and blank on other side.
Everyone keeps saying its a 350mg Carisoprodol, but those are white round with A 266 and they have no Z. 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. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet?

carisoprodol-soma- need doctor to prescribe it!
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.

Mineral deficiency
I have been on carisoprodol&nucynta for 2yrs for muscle spams & knots all over my body.I also take gabapentin&thyroid mess for hypothyroidism.Could these meds deplete potassium levels? ## Has blood work shown yours to be low? It can happen for many reasons and may not necessarily be related to any medications that you're taking. It could just simply be due to not taking in enough of it in your diet, because it can be hard to eat enough of the proper foods to meet the RDA. However, before taking a supplement, you do need to make sure that it's needed, since too much of it can also be dangerous.
