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...

west-ward white oval pill with 252 on it

white oval pill w/ west ward on it along with the number 252 at bottom of pill. it's a caplet ## white oval shape pill says west ward 252 on it what is it? ## I am sorry, this is not listed in any of the US prescription drug databases, it is possibly something available over the counter, or perhaps something that has been discontinued so it is no longer actively listed. ## white oblong tablet imprinted with west-ward 252 on one side. Can anyone ID? ## It Is Robaxin, used to treat skeletal muscle conditions such as pain or injury aka Methocarbamol. Pretty strong and prescription only. ## this is a terrible muscle relaxer unless you have a very low tolerance to medications. For true relief try soma (the generic carisopridol works just as well) but be careful as they will relax ALL of ...

what is the difference between pain o soma and prosoma

I only want to know the difference between Pain-O-Soma and Prosoma. ## If you ONLY want to know the difference between these two drugs, you would need to speak to another Felon that has ordered controlled medicine from overseas. Or you could read archived posts here about both drugs and educate yourself? ## I am not a felon. I only wanted information but since you seem to know the law and have apparently tried illegal transactions, I will advice you that I found out what I wanted to know, the legal way. I don't trust felons and I feel you are one of knowledge. I went thru legal channels to find my answers. No thank you for the failure to answer a simple question. ## What did you find out? ## @Cricket, Although I haven't found many specific details, Carisoprodol seems to be the m...

tizanidine 4mg or soma 350mg stronger

Was taking soma till my insurance put me on tizanadine 4mg once a day which does nothing is that a comparison choice? ## Hello, Annie! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. No, none of the others are really as good as the Soma. The closest might be Skelaxin, which contains the active ingredient Metaxalone, so you may want to ask your doctor about trying it. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I WAS TAKING SOMA 3 AT BEDTIME INSURANCE DOES NOT WANT TO PAY FOR SOMA NO MORE THEY GAVEME TIZANIDINE 4MG HOW MUCH TIZADINE I SHOULD TAKE AT BEDTIME ## Hi I saw your thead and if your ins does want to oay for your soma, be aware that soma is an inexpensive medication.

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...

Baclofen and Vicodin Okay?

Can you take this muscle relaxer with a pain pill? A Vicodin 5/500? ## Sure no problem if you want to get really messed up. ## Yes you can take Baclofen with Vicodin. I take Baclofen with Norco 10/325. Have been on this cocktail of these two meds for quiet sometime now. May make you a little drowsy at first but once your system gets used to it there is no problem. Hope this helps, God Bless, and you will be in my prayers. I am on these due to a spinal birth defect from birth. ## These medications are often prescribed together to treat pain, and the muscle spasms that can contribute to pain. However, they should only be taken together with a doctor's approval, and under a doctor's regular supervision of the patient, because both of them can cause depression of the central nervous...

zanaflex reviews

i have recently been prescribed zanaflex. I was told it's a mix of xanax and flexirl. I was just wondering if anyone else has taken the drug and does food really effect it. ## Hi. I just had back surgery 10 days ago. Because of the length and sverity of my condition (a double herniaton of the L-5 disc) I have had severe muscle spasms all up and down both legs and in my back. It just so happens that I have just completed my certivicate in drug and alcohol rehab counseling., and am finishing up a course in PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY. I've just started taking this drug, since I told my doctor that I can't handle FLEXERIL, which is NOT an anti-inflamitory or a muscle relaxer. Flexeril is a benzodiazapine - a sedative, which is why it is sometimes prescribed for muscle pain. There is NO ...

Pain-o-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...

is baclofen as strong soma

I start a new muscle relaxer tonight called Baclofen. I'd been taking Soma fit years and it's just not helping with the terrible spasms anymore. I'm hoping the Baclofen does the trick. Does anyone know if it's stronger than Soma? I hate taking new meds. I'll make my husband stay up awhile to make sure I don't have a bad reaction. ## Hello, Donna! How are you? No, it is not as strong as Soma. Soma is actually the strongest muscle relaxant available. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Baclofen as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Have you taken it, yet? If so, did you experience any problems? ## Hi Donna, how's it going? I take High-Dose Baclofen (currently 150mg a day titrating up to 350mg a day) for alcoholism. I do get some...

Strange thing is I can't find any info on this pill that tells me what else is in the pill, btw, they are not as good a reuglar soma. ## i get bad tightness in ny muscles within...
