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. The term "muscle relaxant" is used to refer to two major therapeutic groups: neuromuscular blockers and spasmolytics. Neuromuscular blockers act by interfering with transmission at the neuromuscular end plate and have no central nervous system (CNS) activity. They are often used during surgical procedures and in i...

is soma narcotic

I don't care what people say ... its a narcotic or it isn't... it makes u feel f***ed up, period! if u are a recovering addict & plan to stay clean, stay away from somas. I learned the hard way after a doctor prescribed these to me & I had told him I was in recovery.. doctors either don't care of they just don't f***ing know ! ## No it is not a Narcotic. Can it be habit forming & addictive? Oh yeah! ## @chris, It's true that doctors don't always know what's best for their patient's specific needs. And at the end of the day, I think more patients should try to take it upon themselves to do their own research and not leave it all up to someone who may really care less about their situation. To my knowledge Soma is a non-narcotic medication, but ...

how many pills a day of rumoquin can be taken per day

How many pills per day of rumoquin can be taken per day for pain? ## How many pills of rumoquin can I take a day ..I have lower back and left hip pain..I have this med..just want to make sure I am using it correctly ## Hello, I did some research on this drug and found that it is manufactured by Marcel in Mexico. This drug is not FDA approved and is not being distributed in the united states. From what I could gather, Rumoquin contains Methocarbamol (a msucle relaxant), Dexamethasone (a corticosteroid) and Diclofenac (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory) but it does not exactly say how much of each one is within the pill. Other than that there really isn't very much pertinent info on the drug other than the fact that it's designed to relieve pain. Since there is so little informatio...

Soma (carisoprodol) in Oklahoma

My GP recently stopped prescribing me Soma after many years of successful treatment with no other changes in medications. I go to a pain specialist for long term injury and they do not prescribe soma. I've heard that the best bet for getting back to my previous treatment plan may be to find a new GP who would prescribe soma. Does anyone have any idea of how to find this out about the specific doctors or know of any in the Tulsa, OK area who do? Please let me know, I cannot take all of the other muscle relaxants I've been prescribed to try. ## Soma is and does many things but rest assured it does not provide "successful treatment" of any part of the body. That is why it is being slowly phased out ## I'm looking for a doctor who prescribes soma in Tulsa, OK. I have bee...

In what way does this H 114 pill help with opiate withdrawal? ## This tablet contains 500mgs of Methocarbamol, it is a muscle relaxant that's used to treat painful muscle spasms.

Carisoprodol/Soma - need a 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. I ...
