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...

what is the difference between pain o soma and prosoma
10 Replies RSS
I only want to know the difference between Pain-O-Soma and Prosoma. ## If you ONLY want to know the difference between these two drugs, you would need to speak to another Felon that has ordered controlled medicine from overseas. Or you could read archived posts here about both drugs and educate yourself? ## I am not a felon. I only wanted information but since you seem to know the law and have apparently tried illegal transactions, I will advice you that I found out what I wanted to know, the legal way. I don't trust felons and I feel you are one of knowledge. I went thru legal channels to find my answers. No thank you for the failure to answer a simple question. ## What did you find out? ## @Cricket, Although I haven't found many specific details, Carisoprodol seems to be the m...

Is Soma A Narcotic muscle relaxer
42 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? ...

Where Is A Reputable Place That I Can Fill a Soma Rx Online Or Doctor In Montgomery Alabama Who Will Prescribe Them To Me

I have been taking Soma for many years, along with lorcet and over the counter ibuprophen for about 7 or 8 years. I believe it all started when I landed on top of my head and fractured my spine in the very upper part of my back, because thats when all hell broke loose. Ir was one painful thing after the otheri have also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, however u spell that but for # years I have been getting these 3 day, cant even talk or open my eyes or do anything else headaches caused from these very painful knots in my upper back an neck and base of my scull caused from spasms making the muscle around my entire head start having spasms. I have had allot of pain in my life but this by far the worst for the longest amount of time. I dont seem to get any relief from the pain pill, but...

Round white Pill With Cl 022
4 Replies RSS
I found a round white pill with the imprint CL 022 on the same side. Anybody have any idea what this is? ## Hi Joe, The imprint "TCL 022" is the closest match I could locate to "CL 022". This pill is an off-white/beige color and is round. It is identified as a 60mg Thyroid tablet, which is used in the treatment of underactive thyroid; hashimoto's disease; hypothyroidism, after thyroid removal; thyroid cancer. NOTE: the imprint itself is all on the same side as you mentioned Is there any chance that this could be your pill? ## No it cleary says cl 022 its round and white. Its almost like an immitation soma pill when you compare the size ## the CL 022 IS A 325 ASPIRIN / 200 SOMA (CARISOPRODOL) ... CL 023 is not ## You are correct. It's a generic Soma, a muscle rela...

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. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hea...

I have been taking soma for years and have tried everything for sciatic nerve it puts me in the bed for weeks but when I was given this it am thankful its great thank you Waston drug company ## Watson, and they thank you for being a loyal Carisoprodol user. I like Soma, it is very likeable although harder and harder to get these days. ## Please tell me the name of your pharmacy. I have been looking for Watson Soma and I would appreciate some info on how to get them filled. I can get Pain-o-Soma but it is less potent. Much appreciated ## There was no mention of an Internet Pharmacy? It is illegal to order drugs through the mail, and these items are watched by Postal Inspectors, the DEA & ICE when they clear customs. Its like giving the Feds your name, address, and Credit Card

Soma Versus Baclofen
36 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...

I had gastric bypass in 2010 and am considered a rapid metabolizer for opiates. I have 5 herniated discs in my lower back and nerve disease and stay in constant pain. I have been to 9 pain management docs bc no one wants to take on my case and is scared to prescribed the amounts of medication I need to get through the day. I have tried physical therapy, injections and acupuncture all to no avail. I have a great doc now who is at least trying to help me and currently has me on dilaudid, soma, Lyrica, and suboxone patches most are three and six times daily. I have 5 children and that allows me to function daily with less pain than without. With the metabolizing issue I have no side effects or withdrawal symptoms when taken off, only with the soma I had to cut down to 1/2 of 350 mg 3 times...

I've had multiple surgeries in the past and I take Soma would it affect mysperm to have a baby with my wife? I just started taking it this month for the first time. ## No you shouldn't have any problems. If you were breastfeeding it might be a concern but Soma is just a muscle relaxer. ## No you should be fine! ## Yes soma will reduce testes size and weight and sperm motility will be reduced
