Muscle Relaxer Overview

A muscle relaxant is a drug that affects skeletal muscle function and decreases the muscle tone. It may be used to alleviate symptoms such as muscle spasms, pain, and hyperreflexia.

Neuromuscular blockers act by interfering with transmission at the neuromuscular end plate and have no central nervous system (CNS) activity.

Can different brands of carisoprodol work differently?

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. 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 easier for many people, if they knew what compa...

Soma for Dystonia

I have been taking Soma and Valium for dystonia because after many trials, is was the only combination that worked. I am now able to work full time. Now my doctor can no longer prescribe it because of the DEA. I am really fed up with the US and plan to move abroad because I was told that that combination or any of the above can NEVER be prescribed with a pain medication either NO MATTER WHAT THE DIAGNOSIS IS. It's total nonsense. The DEA is telling my neurologist how to treat the conditions he is an expect in. ## I certainly don't blame pain patients for wanting to leave the US with all the strict regulations that are now being placed upon every type of health care practitioner. I'm not sure if this could work, but in the meantime I'd even consider trying out a new docto...

Robaxin/Methocarbamol and hot flashes

I had a bilateral mastectomy a month ago and have been taking methocarbamol for one month every 8 hours. In the last week I'm only taking it at bedtime. The only other meds I'm taking is 4 Advil at the same time. I a suffering from bad night sweats. Could it be caused by the methocarbamol? ## I am also experiencing night sweats while taking methocarbamol. I found that it was listed as one of the less common side effects. ## Hello Natalie, Yes according to the National Institute of Health it is a listed side effect of methocarbamol to have flushing (warmth, tingling feeling, hot flashes) as well as insomnia. With these two combined I can see how it is difficult for you to get adequate sleep. I hope this information helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Baclofen 20, Ketoprofen 150, Lidocaine 50 Cream

Can anyone tell me the prescription trade name for a cream containing baclofen 20 mg, ketoprofen 150(?), and lidocaine 50 mg? ## From my own investigation, pain creams that contain these types of ingredients are formulated in compound pharmacies and therefore do not have a trade name like many other topical prescriptions. These are just generic topical formulas that can vary in ingredients with anything from what's listed below, to other combinations that I have not included here: -Baclofen, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen, Cyclobenzaprine, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine, Dicyclomine -Ketoprofen, Gabapentin, Lidocaine, Amitriptyline Hope this helps!
