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...

Pain-o-soma blister pack no imprint on pill?

Round white pill no imprint? HAB pharmaceutical licence #48/ua 2006 ## Looks like a cheap generic of Soma (Carisoprodol), possibly produced semi-legally in response to rising demand on account of an increasing number from international orders to Indian online pharmacies. Doesn't seem to be effective much. ## Pain-O-Soma is a very minimal substitute for Watson brand Soma at best. Even though it is plainly marked Carisprodol 350mg tablets they are placeboes in comparison. My advice is find a nice family dr that will prescribe or buy it from a online US pharmacy- if the will ship it to your state. There have recently been several states added as no ship states for Soma only in many cases ## And if there are no markings on the tablets, there is no way to establish whether or not the med...

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 ...

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...

my mom has been taking somas and her doctor changed her meds and she is skeptical of new medicene. ## no baclofen is not exactly the same as soma. they are both muscle relaxers but baclofen is a little stronger. i had been on soma and flexeril for over two years and now they have switched me to baclofen. it does work alot better for muscle spasms ## Am wanting to know at what rate baclofen treatment can be tapered off and the risk affects if stopped abruptly ## baclofen work alot better than soma it really releives the pain quicker than soma. ## IMy doctor just gave me Baclodol 5mg/300mg carisoprodol (soma).

where to purchase rumoquin nf medication

Need to know where to purchase Rumoquin N.F. pills other than Tijuana,BC. Thank you for any help you can give me. ## Rumoquin NF contains the active ingredients: 100mgs of Phenylbutazone (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory): 200mgs of Methocarbamol (a muscle relaxant): and Dexamethasone (a corticosteroid): It is used to treat pain and swelling. That said, I am not sure where else you can purchase it, since this combination is not approved in the U.S. Have you tried seeing if you can order it online? ## My wife has arthritis in her lower back and left hip and leg. Is Rumoquin NF a good way to go. What she is taking now is doing nothing.

Soma, Lortab, MS Contin effects

I've been on Soma for 20 years and hate to admit that I take up to 10 a day sometimes, just to get enough relief from severe muscle spasms so that I can sleep. I broke my back in 1988 after lifting 17,000 lbs in 6 hrs. and have undergone 5 major operations, for a fusion that failed. So they finally diagnosed me with failed back syndrome. I had 3 intrathecal morphine pump implants over a period of 12 years, but after the last one malfunctioned I chose to have it removed and chose to take the oral med MS Contin, which I've been on for 4 years, 30 mg. 3x a day. I'm also on Lortab for breakthrough pain 10/500 3x daily. I've been on this medication for 18 years and have built a tolerance to it, so I often have to take 5-6 a day. Since I have liver disease would it be safer to...

Cyclobenzaprine vs Carisoprodol

Generally prescribed in place of Carisoprodol (AZ 266 - round white pill, 3/8 diameter) because of its lower dose and other reasons; used mainly as a muscle relaxer, pain control and tranquilizer. AZ 266 can become addictive, while Cyclobenzaprine not so much. Look up either AZ 266 or Carisoprodol or Soma. ## Is Cyclobenzaprine the "street drug" known as "benzo's"? ## That is correct, Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxant, and is the active ingredient in Soma. It has been known to be abused, and to cause addiction in some people that take it. The typical side effects of this medication may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, somnolence, and depressed mood, according to FDA reports. Ref: Carisoprodol Information Rashidah, no, Cyclobenzaprine is another type ...

oblong gray and white pill p449

I was wondering what this pill is used for? It is oblong, gray on one side and white on the other. The number on the pill is p449 and the number is on the gray side. It is not a capsule. ## I am almost 100% sure this is Robax Platinum (500mg methocarbamol, 200 mg Ibuprofin) I use these for muscle strains and they really do a good job at easing the pain without making you feel "loopy". ## Jenny may be right, as I have come across a small pill image of Robax Platinum depicting a half white, half gray oblong pill associated with their product packaging. However I also noticed a score line on the pill and it wasn't clear enough to determine what the markings were (if any). Also, please correct me if I'm wrong, but Robax Platinum appears to be a Canadian medication. Just some...

Somas and tennessee law

i was on soma approx 10yrs then 1 1/2yrs ago my dr said she couldnt write prescriptions for them anymore i have taken 5 different relaxers and nothing works like soma. why cant i get them now? ## Well a couple years back Soma was re classified as a schedule 4 medicine and many Doctors don't like to write for it. Funny thing, I have had 3 doctors since the new law prescribe me Soma, go figure! ## Soma is the most commonly abused muscle relaxant, because it is so potent. And Eddy is correct, it was changed to a schedule IV controlled substance several years ago. As such, to have them prescribed on any long-term, ongoing basis, you'd need to be seeing a specialist, such as a pain management physician. ## Can soma be prescribed with oxycodone? ## Very doubtful with the new regulatio...

Just received my refill of soma 350mg but they look different than the ones I am used to getting from the same pharmacy. No read out was put in the bag. The white round pill had a SG 109 on one side & blank on the other side. Anybody ever heard of these before? Because, since there was no print out of the new different medication I was a little worried, "what if the pharmacist made a little error in mine & somebody else's medications". Thanks for any feedback. ## Errors are made every day but these pills have been identified as Soma ## That is correct, they are manufactured by ScieGen Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 350mgs of Carisoprodol, which is a generic for Soma. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hea...

Is Soma a narcotic muscle relaxer?

My doctor has told me that that soma is a narcotic and she does not want to prescribe it to me any more. I suffer from chronic back pain as well as muscle spasms. I have tried other muscle relaxers as well as anti inflamatories and none of then do not work. Soma is the only one I have found to work for me without making me sleepy. Any information you can give me i would really appreciate. Thank you, Dana ## No, it is not a narcotic, nor is it related to opioid pain relievers. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol. It has, however, been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. ## Soma - Do they come up on a U/A? Since you say it's not a narcotic what do they come up as? ## I have ankylosing spondylitis. Other than the Enbrel and other such meds, what is ...
