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...

Getting Teva brand of Soma filled

Is it possible to get the Teva brand Soma dispensed when I fill my prescription? Are they the ones marked 2410V, or the Dan 5513 Soma? ## As of 7/21/21 the Teva availability was not good. There is a Soma shortage worldwide: Reason for the Shortage: - Teva has carisoprodol on shortage due to manufacturing delay - Cadista discontinued carisoprodol tablets - Endo Pharmaceuticals discontinued carisoprodol tablets - Rising discontinued carisoprodol tablets - Mylan has Soma tablets available - Sciegen has carisoprodol tablets available ## Oxford soma IMO is better than all the other. Just got mine filled and very satisfied ## Wow I have been getting these Oxford 'Pharmace' 0 111 Vanadom Soma for the last 9 months or so. I had never heard of Vanadom before and these are awful, smaller ...

Expired Carisoprodol (Soma)

I am in excruciating pain. I found an old script for Soma that expired in 1996. Can I take it without doing any harm? ## You could although it may not work like it did when new ## Yes, Eddy is correct, expired medications can be less effective than when they were fresh and new. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. This is also not a pain reliever, it is a muscle relaxant, so it may not help you in the way you wish. Are you on any other medications? Have you consulted your doctor? ## Pharmacist are eager to hurt and not help. They have no idea what your medical condition is and don’t care. They are judgmental, especially if you are in pain and old. Maybe they should take an oath. “First Do No Harm.”. Hu...

Gen payne prolonged use - diabetic

Hi, I need some advice on the prolonged use of Gen payne. Been struggling with TMD and the dentist prescribed genpayne and norflex, so I've been taking the gen payne daily (sometimes twice) for something like 2-3 weeks now I've stopped taking it today and woke up feeling shaky. Will this feeling stop over time or do I have to see a doctor? ## Gen-Payne contains Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, and Codeine, the latter of which is an opiate, so you may be experiencing some mild withdrawal effects, which is normal if you suddenly stop taking it abruptly. According to FDA reports, you may also experience nausea, rebound pain, dizziness, and headache. ref=" target'=_blank" rel="noopener">Medline Plus Codeine However, if your symptoms become severe, or if you feel you...

large green and yellow tablet - RIKER

Large pill, one half green and the other (back) half yellow marked Riker ## I found a old pill bottle that was 3 different tones layers top side imprint said only says RIKERS yellow, thenbottom side was green and middle is white, the date said 1967, what is it. There is no identifation on the bottle of what the pills were only that said take 1-2 from every 4 hours for pain. whatis it? Just curios ## Hello, I was unable to find anything on these pills from a credible source but from what I gather "Riker" is the brand of medication and that they had multiple pills. Other members have claimed that pills similar to your description are pain killers of some kind and there are other types of "Riker" pills that were anti-appetite pills that were nearly similar to the illegal dr...

I need a pain management dr in Georgia

I need a pain doctor or pain clinic who doesn't require a referral, takes Medicare and Medicaid, who will prescribe my Xanax 2mg, Dilaudid 8mg, Roxy 30, Soma 350mg. I have my paperwork from the hospital state to take these meds. I need someone in Atlanta Ga, or Roswell Ga, Lwrncvil Ga. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. As to your medications, it is doubtful that you will find one doctor that will prescribe them all. Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you need to see a specialist, so for that list, you'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist, as well as a psychiatrist for the Xanax. These medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dr...

Updated in Soma

So yesterday I FINALLY RECEIVED my prescription of Pain-O-Soma in the blister packs that are from (Supposedly) HAB Pharmaceuticals & they ARE / WERE AWFUL!!!! I took 3 & #1) they DID NOT FEEL LIKE ANY BRAND OF SOMA THAT'S MADE HERE IN THE GOOD OLD UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA & #2) I think that they may have even given me MORE // WORSE MUSCLE SPASMS!!!! I can't believe that I f***in wasted close to $200.00 on these things & then had to wait for over 3 weeks to receive them... They came from India... So now I've got over 120 of these damn things, they're in the blister packs & they're a plain white pill with no numbers or anything on them except for a strait line on one side of the pill... I read about these in these forums & because there were mor...

Baclofen - controlled substance?

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. ## Now i understand why, my dr.p...

Can methocarbamol treat toothache?

I took 2 x 750 mg. Trying to help with the pain until I can get to the dentist. Will this help? ## It’s a muscle relaxant. While it won’t help with the pain, per se, it’ll probably help you feel better, by helping you stop tensing up with the pain. Take ibuprofen with it. You need an anti-inflammatory pain med. ## What Beth stated is correct. Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant, it is most commonly used to treat the pain, and spasms associated with muscle injuries. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Acetaminophen, or Ibuprofen may help, if it is safe for you to take them. Do you have an emergency dentist in your area?

Is Tizanidine considered a narcotic?

People that take Tizanidine will test positive for opiates. It's considered a narcotic, because there's 1 ingredient that they use in this and its used in opiates like percocet. The reason I know? - I just got prescribed it and it is a muscle relaxer, but my doctor told me it is considered a narcotic and he gave me a urine stick to take home, so he knows I'm taking it. Just so you people know, it will show up positive. Editor's note: Tizanidine is not considered an opiate. It is classified as a muscle relaxer [1]. ## You are wrong. It absolutely is not a controlled substance therefore not a narcotic. There are no opiates in zanaflex. Please know what you are talking about before you respond. ## Actually Tizanidine will NOT test positive for opiates. I take Tizanidine 3 t...
