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...

White pill 832 bc20

Is this the same as a soma muscle relaxer? If not, is it as strong as a soma? I'm needing to know because my little girl found it under her bed. ## Not the same but in the family! 832 BC 20 (Baclofen 20 mg) ## Eddy is correct. This tablet contains 20mgs of Baclofen, it is not as strong, but is still a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything I can help with?

Small white pill Rugby 4840

rugby 4840 small round white pill. What is it? ## rugby 4604 oblong white pill what is it??? thanks ## Rugby imprints were discontinued years ago, when the company was purchased by another, I think it may have been Watson, but don't quote me on that. LOL Anyway, from what I've been able to find, the one with the 4840 marking is said to have contained Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant, though I cannot confirm that and haven't been able to find a dosage. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dry mouth, and headache. The one with the 4604 marking is listed as having contained 400mgs of Ibuprofen, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side...

carisoprodol-soma- need doctor to prescribe it!
50 Replies RSS
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 ...

I recently started a baclofen, amtripyline & gabapentin cream for vuladynia. I have just discovered redness, almost burn like on the edge of the vulva and on my leg. I can not find any information as far as side effects and the doctor's office did not know. I don't know what to do. ## I have been diagnosed with vulvadynia and been working with my gyn/uro doctor for over a year. I have used nustatin, clobetasol, & topicort with no success. I also use Premarin vaginal cream twice weekly. Last week her prescribed a special compound of amitriptyline, baclofen & gabapentin. Has anyone tried this combination. I have a long history of UTI's and major bladder repair surgery including 2 slings of cadaver tissue on my bladder & urethra. Following surgery I was told my ...

5513 ## I am not certain what you are asking, could you please clarify? ## Can I take the medication Soma if it expired in 2007? ## I’m wondering the same thing. I found a script that expired in 2007 also. ## Yes you can, they may show signs of aging but should still be good. I did however have some Rantidine/Zantac go bad after storing an emergency night bag in my car in 150 degree Southern California summer weather

the pill is round with a line in the middle with numbers and on top and bottom onthe back of it smooth ## I think the imprint you are looking at might be BC20 832, it is manufactured by Upsher-Smith, and they list it as containing 20mgs of Baclofen, which is a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Tizanadine, Cyclobenzaprine & Baclofen

I was having swelling in my throat w/ baclofen & now it seems to be happening again. I take tizanidine & cyclobenzaprine & I'm trying to figure out if either of these two are causing this? Does tizanidine have the same properties as baclofen? ## Cyclobenzaprine and Baclofen are both muscle relaxants. Thus, I must ask why you are taking both? It is not common to be prescribed two medications in the same class, at the same time. And yes, according to FDA reports, since all 3 of these medications are muscle relaxants, you may also experience such a reaction to the others. You should be very cautious and if you have severe trouble breathing, or develop hives, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Soma, Cyclobenzaprine or Tizanidine
2 Replies RSS
Is Soma a good muscle relaxer? Right now I'm taking Tizanidine which is not working very good. I use to take Soma but they were cutting that out so I just asked for something else. Is DAN 5658 any better? ## No Dan 5658 is not SOMA. They do however make a decent SOMA ## Cyclobenzaprine is a bit stronger than Tizanidine, but it really depends on how well it works for you. Soma is the strongest available, it contains Carisoprodol, but due to how often it is abused, many doctors will no longer prescribe it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of muscle relaxants as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Have you tried taking it, yet?

I have been in soma for a long time on and off. I have tried every muscle relaxer/ spasmodic out there. All of a sudden my dr won't prescribe soma anymore?? I have a disease that has no cure and I know what works for me. I have given an honest try with all the other muscle meds, but I am at my wit end. It is ok to give me oxycodone and fentanyl patches but the soma is a no? I don't understand. I would need less break through pain meds if I still was in the soma. I was doing so much better. I am disabled and I am having a hard time with going to urgent care whenever I'm having spasm or my muscles are locked. Any suggestions? ## Hello, JJ! How are you doing? I am very sorry about what you're going through. There were new regulations put in place last year regarding what a ...

Baclofen - controlled substance?
4 Replies RSS
Is Baclofen (10mg) recognized as a controlled substance? Does it have a narcotic in it? Does it control pain? ## No, it is classified as a muscle relaxant, so it does not contain a narcotic, according to FDA listings. It is used to treat the pain associated with muscle sprains, strains, and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I want to know if Baclofen is a controlled substance and if it is, then what class is it in? ## Ok now let me ask you about butrans pain patch can I take hydrocodone and robaxin with it? ## No way, you will develop tolerance and get in trouble. Butrans is buphrenorpine an opioid/analgesic. Discuss with your Doctor.
