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 Tizanidine Out Of My System

I was prescribed Tizanidine 4 mg and took 30 within a 4 week span. How long would this amount take to get out of my body? Any info appreciated! ## Hello, Beezer! How are you? The FDA classifies Tizanidine as a muscle relaxant, so there is no reason to worry about being on it. It is not addictive or habit forming. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Did you have a bad reaction to it? ## I had an awful reaction to this drug. Combined with my blood pressure medicine (Bystolic) I took one of the Tizandine in the evening - have fibromyalgia and restless leg syndrome. May husband found me passed out in the bathroom with blood flowing from my head. Evidently I passed out when I went into the bathroom during the night. I have a huge scar on m...

Shortage of Soma (Carisoprodol) DAN 5513

I am writing this thread forum to discuss the shortage on soma and carisoprodol. Recently even the best pharmacies in my area are completely out of soma. Had to wait a week just to get my second best preferred soma 350mg generic. I had to settle for Jubliant Cadista Pharma generics which are the imprinted OP 35 white tablets. I have been on the Watson formulation for over 5 years which are imprinted DAN 5513. Luckily when Activas Elizabeth / Mayne Pharma acquired Watson Pharma then of which now Teva Pharma has acquired Activas medications. Activas was smart as they kept the Watson formulation of soma and dispensed the watson generic formulation. Last month I was able to find the watson DAN 5513 tablets and was informed they would have them in stock in future no problem. This was not the...

Rising Pharmaceuticals Soma (Carisoprodol)

I recently had my monthly prescription for Soma filled at my local Walmart pharmacy and for the past several months had been receiving the Watson brand from them, which work really well for my muscle pain and spasms, but last week when I picked up my prescription they were a different brand manufactured by Rising Pharmaceuticals. I normally take 2 in the morning and spread out the other 2, one for the afternoon and then one before bed, but this new brand sucks and hasn't given me ANY relief of my muscle pain and spasms! I've never had a generic brand just not work at all for me, but this brand is just terrible! Even taking 3 at a time still doesn't do anything to help!!! I've notified my doctor, filed a report with the FDA, and also sent Rising Pharmaceuticals a complain...

Soma out of stock at Rite Aid pharmacy?

So much for the informed posters here who claim a pharmacy will order whatever generic brand you want: -------------------------------- Dear Soma taker, The prescription you recently requested to be filled that begins with 'CA' is currently out of stock. We have placed an urgent order and will notify you when it is ready. We apologize for the inconvenience. Should you have any questions, please call. Thank you for making us your pharmacy. Sincerely, Rite Aid Pharmacy ## First of all, I had to leave Rite Aid because they won’t order specific brand or even avoid ordering specific brands But I don’t think the Rite Aid near me actually carries medication anymore, I’m not being hyperbolic when I say every single prescription that I have sent to them they have to ord...

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 ...

Mobizox tablet during pregnancy

My doctor (gynecologist) has prescribed me with 3 mobizox tablets for pain in my ribs... However, after taking one mobizox tablet I later came to know that the mobizox tablet is not safe during pregnancy and that there will be unwanted side effects on fetal development or new born babies. Although I have taken only one tablet and stopped using the remaining 2 mobizox tablets, kindly advise if there will be any adverse effects on my baby from taking the one mobizox tablet?

Can I take Soma with Suboxone?

I am taking suboxone for chronic pain but having severe muscle spasms. I am thinking about asking my pain doc for Soma. I have tried Flexeril and Zanaflex and got no relief. ## No, you should not take these medications together, Major drug interaction. It may result in central nervous system depression which can lead to serious side effects such as respiratory distress, coma, and even death. [1] ## Yes. Soma is a medication that is taken short term, 2 to 3 weeks. If prescribed, take only as directed, increasing the dosage can cause complications, up to and including, death. Soma actually becomes Meprobamate in our bodies, which is a barbiturate. If you and your doctor feel you will take Soma as prescribed, it shouldn't be a problem for treating severe muscle strains over a short per...

Doctors who prescribe Soma near Dallas Texas

Looking for a doctor who Prescribes soma in DFW area, preferably Garland or Plano or Richardson. I’ve been on soma for eight years through my PCP but unfortunately the practice he belongs to has closed down. I went to pain management doctor today and the charges are $500 a visit and does not prescribe some. I can’t take any other muscle relaxers. ## I really feel Texas is limiting the rights of their citizens, and Abbott doesn't care. Trying to set the law of the land with that Abortion Pill, and now wont even let doctors prescribe Soma.
