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...

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...

Availability of Soma / Carisoprodol

I've tried every other muscle relaxer Tizanidine / (trade names Zanaflex, Sirdalud) Methocarbamol / trade name Robaxin/ Baclofen (brand names Kemstro, Lioresal, Liofen, Gablofen, Beklo and Baclosan) Cyclobenzaprine, brand names Amrix, Flexeril and Fexmid all of these have adverse side effects for me and virtually no muscle relaxer efficacy= they don't work well or really not at all side effects, headaches, dizziness, lots more soma / Carisoprodol however worked very well, and I had to take small amounts so that side effects were able to be kept at a minimum when soma / Carisoprodol began from what I've heard to gain a little popularity with druggies. doctors quit prescribing it, and authorities, the powers that be, began to council doctors against prescribing it I was not ab...

medium sized white round pill 294 r

Does anyone know if this pill stamp is indicative of Soma 350 mg? My husband found this medium sized, round white pill on the floor and we're not sure which one of us dropped it. ## I didn't find a tablet with this marking in any of the FDA, or NIH databases, I even searched individual pictures of Soma, and it's generic, Carisoprodol. They do warn that it carries the risk of causing side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. Can you please double check the imprint and post back? Have you also tried comparing it to your other pills to see if it matches any of them? ## Sodium bicarbonate 10 grain by “Rising Pharm” manufacturer. ## Why does a 650mg get replaced by a 10gr pill. same composition?

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 ...

white round pill no imprints or markings

resembles a mentos in size and shape, completely white with no evidence of a coating, no imprints or markings ## it's probably a diet pill ## It is most likely that this was some type of over the counter product. From the size and shape, my best guess is that it was a supplement of some type, though I can't be certain. If there are no markings, we can rule such pills out as being U.S. manufactured prescription medications, because they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification, in case of emergency. However, there is a small chance it could be a foreign medication, but that isn't very likely. I've seen some Calcium supplements that resemble this, though. Does anyone else recognize it? ## could be a muscle relaxer soma from mexico looks just like a ...

large oval pill light green with score line on one side white with 254 on the other

Could someone please identify this pill? Large oval pill light green with score line on one side white with 254 on the other. ## I believe this is an OTC generic version of the muscle relaxer Robaxacet. ## Hello, Rackleff! How are you? I haven't been able to find a listing for this in any of the databases that I've checked, which makes me suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product of some type. It could be an over the counter Robaxacet as Margaret stated. (Thank you, Margaret!) But I can't confirm that, since it is an over the counter product. It is available in Canada, not the U.S. and contains Acetaminophen with the muscle relaxant Methocarbamol. Learn more Acetaminophen details here. Learn more Methocarbamol details here.
