Soma 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. The major metabolic pathway of carisoprodol involves its conversion to meprobamate, a barbiturate-like drug.[3] In the United States, Carisoprodol is a Schedule IV cont...

New Orleans Pain Dr.
22 Replies RSS
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...

4211 v soma are these the same as somas
4 Replies RSS
So basically the pill with. 4211 V is a soma but just a lower dosage????? ## No it is not Soma. Use caution when taking strange pills ## Hello, Shelly! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Methocarbamol, which is a generic for Robaxin. The FDA classifies this medication as a muscle relaxant and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## is soma 2410v the same as v4211need to know if they are soma ## As answered already you can clearly see that the two pills are not the same medicine

muscle relaxer that's most like soma
Post a Reply
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?

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.

Is Soma a narcotic muscle relaxer
45 Replies RSS
my doctor has told me that that soma is a narcotic and she does not want to prescribe it to me any more. I suffer from chronic back pain as well as muscle spasms. I have tried other muscle relaxers as well as anti inflamatories and none of then do not work. Soma is the only one I have found to work for me without making me sleepy. Any information you can give me i would really appreciate. Thank you, Dana ## No, it is not a narcotic. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, but it has been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. However, what you have to remember is that prescribing it is entirely up to your doctor, she is not obligated to do so. You also have the option of finding a different doctor, for any reason you choose. Are there any other questions? ...

Soma Versus Baclofen
37 Replies RSS
I was recently switched from soma to baclofen. The Baclofen makes me feel very strange and I cannot function as well on it as I can with Soma. It makes me sleepy, and frankly just makes me feel like crap. The Soma works better for me as far as muscle spasms. The Baclofen does help spinal pain but does not work as quickly as Soma on spasms. My doctors in Alabama refuse to prescribe me Soma even though I have been put on different muscke rekaxers, Soma works best with my body. Why will doctors nor prescribe what works best for the individual. Every thing works different on different people. I want to be able to function and not be a zombie. What should I do. My pain clinic doctor only wants to get meds from him, but if he wont prescribe what works, I will get my pain meds from him and som...

Is Soma Stronger Than Roboxin
17 Replies RSS
my friend is prescribed roboxin and im prescribed soma, and we were wondering which one is stronger? ## No, methocarbamol is not scheduled by the DEA in any category. Metaxolone (Skelaxin) isn't either. Carisoprodol (Soma) is the only similar agent that is currently scheduled (Sched IV). ## They are both muscle relaxants, but the Soma is the strongest that is currently available in this category. They both have similar side effect profiles and may cause nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache. You can learn more Soma details here and you can learn more Robaxin details here. Are there any comments or questions? ## The DEA Has Made it where if you get Valium or Xanax, you can't get SOMA. We now Have the DEA Making Health Care Choices Now. I trust my Doctor more Than the DEA. In ...

what is methocarbam 750mg
2 Replies RSS
Is methocarbam ?the same medication as Soma ## It is Robaxin a muscle relaxer. From what I see they are nothing like Soma ## @Cindy, Both Soma (carisoprodol) and Robaxin (methocarbamol) are listed as muscle relaxers. From what I've read, both drugs also reportedly work in the same way - by blocking nerve impulses / pain sensations that are sent to the brain. However with regards to potency/efficacy I'm not sure how they compare, so you may have to discuss that with your prescribing doctor if it's something you're interested in trying. Hope this helps!
