Soma (carisoprodol) in Oklahoma

My GP recently stopped prescribing me Soma after many years of successful treatment with no other changes in medications. I go to a pain specialist for long term injury and they do not prescribe soma. I've heard that the best bet for getting back to my previous treatment plan may be to find a new GP who would prescribe soma. Does anyone have any idea of how to find this out about the specific doctors or know of any in the Tulsa, OK area who do? Please let me know, I cannot take all of the other muscle relaxants I've been prescribed to try. ## Soma is and does many things but rest assured it does not provide "successful treatment" of any part of the body. That is why it is being slowly phased out ## I'm looking for a doctor who prescribes soma in Tulsa, OK. I have bee...

Soma Carisoprodol Dan 5513

I had a neck fusion 10 years ago and my DR. put me on soma and xanax.Last month he changed it to valium. The valium is not helping my muscle spasms at all.I had some soma left from my last refill and took some yesterday will it show up on drug test different from the valium?And if so how long does it take to get out of my system before I go back to my DR.? ## I have the same problem with a DAN/350 mg.How many days does it stay in your system. This is a genetic for Soma. ## Yes they will show up different, I don't know how long google it.

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...

RUGBY 3435

White round with RUGBY on one side 3435 on the other ## Identify white round pill with rugby on one side an 3435 on the other side. ## From what I can find this is listed as being a generic for Soma, which contains 350mgs of Carisoprodol. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is anyone else familiar with this tablet? ## Where did you find that information?

Soma? NO IMPRINT AT ALL!

These pills are white, completely blank, except for a slash across the middle on one side. Are these candy? WTF Are they? Have I been totally scammed??? ## Well, where were they obtained from? if they have no markings, we can rule them out as being a U.S. approved and manufactured Soma/Carisoprodol tablet, because all such prescription medications are required to have imprints to enable their identification. However, it could be any one of a large number of over the counter products, since they do not fall under this law. Learn more Soma details here. ## They sound like somas from mexico. A friend brought me some from there yesterday. No imprint, larger than a percocet with little 'e' down the middle on one side and nothing on the other side. ## Help, I got the exact same thing....

Find a doctor Savannah GA

I have been in soma for a long time on and off. I have tried every muscle relaxer/spasmodic out there. All of a sudden my dr won't prescribe soma anymore?? I have a disease that has no cure and I know what works for me. I have given an honest try with all the other muscle meds, but I am at my wit end. It is ok to give me oxycodone and fentanyl patches but the soma is a no? I don't understand. I would need less break through pain meds if I still was in the soma. I was doing so much better. I am disabled and I am having a hard time with going to urgent care whenever I'm having spasm or my muscles are locked. Any suggestions? ## Hello, JJ! How are you doing? I am very sorry about what you're going through. There were new regulations put in place last year regarding what a d...

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. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, but it has been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. However, what you have to remember is that prescribing it is entirely up to your doctor, she is not obligated to do so. You also have the option of finding a different doctor, for any reason you choose. Are there any other questions? ...

Soma (carisoprodol) prescription

Doctors will not write RX for this anymore. I am allergic to Vicodin, Codeine all sorts of pain meds. Soma always worked for me. I sit with extreme pain; nothing works all = depression; never had depression till whole body turned into pain. Real, overwhelming pain; can't sleep; cannot eat; nausea from pain. ## There are better muscle relaxers than Soma on the market. Many Doctors don't like prescribing Soma as they have had personal experience with this worthless medication. With that said I am lucky my doctor will prescribe it, he is a great man! ## There's too many interactions between Soma opiate drugs and benzodiazepines for doctors to prescribe them as they once were ## I have the exact problem if they won't prescribe soma than the key should have something that wor...

HAB India pain/o/soma

I got pain-o-soma rx'd from India. Took a week to get. They don't work although they did make me very tired. I took my first dose..nothing. Then took a second dose ... nothing except making me tired. What a rip off. It's a racket. I am sure they don't get any return customers. They did say they have Watson Somas but are more expensive & only payment method is Western Union which is a hassle & also costly. ## Unfortunately, when you receive medication from a foreign source, there is really no way to be sure of its safety, or potency, since foreign medications are not approved by the FDA. There is even a chance that you didn't receive Soma/Carisoprodol, at all. There was even an instance on here a few years ago when many people all received the same exact table...

Which is stronger Soma 350 Mg Or Oxycodone 10 325

I was given a prescription for each, but don't want to take both...just one of the weaker kind since I'm not in as much pain as usual, which one do I take Soma 350 mg or Oxycodone 10/325 mg? ## These are not both pain medications, so they can't really be compared as to which is stronger, since they are different substances that do different things. Soma is a muscle relaxant that contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol. Learn more Soma details here. And the Oxycodone with Acetaminophen is a narcotic analgesic. Learn more Percocet details here. That's likely why you were given both prescriptions, because they both help in different ways. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Well it depends on what you want to take. Those are to different meds. Oxycodone is a p...

SOMA 350MG WITH IMPRINTS OF SG 109

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...

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...

Withdrawals from soma, morphine, xanax, oxycodone - help please

I have been in pain management for years, lost my doctor along with other patients, and primary won't fill or says she can't and messes up my progress to get in new pain management in time. Now I'm losing Soma, was 3 times a day, now I have 7 tabs left. Was on 45 mg of morphine 3 times, oxycodone 15s and xanax 5 mg 3 times a day. Which she said she can not write for. Why, if she knew or thought this pain clinic was prescribing more than standard, did she never say a word until i had to go to her in desperation for this? Your primary that has to refer you and get info to get into a new pain clinic, I have very serious health issues no one is dealing with, I feel alone and suicidal. I even told my doctor and the old pain clinic staff that left, and not a bit of help, yet they ...

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...

Muscle Relaxers comparable to Soma?

My insurance company stopped filling my prescription of Soma because it is not in their health care plan formula. What are the top five that work as well as Soma (Carisoprodol)? ## Then Stan you reach in your pocket and pull out the $4 it costs for Soma. I pay $2. The insurance company doesn't dictate what medicines you can take, only which ones they might not pay for? ## Unfortunately, there is really no top options list that anyone can give you, there are no others that are as strong as Soma, at this time, and which other one might help can vary from person to person. If you can't afford to pay for it out of pocket, as Eddy suggested, you might want to consult your doctor about which one they think would be best for you to try. Personally, I had great results with Skelaxin, wh...

how do i get my dr to prescribe me muscle relaxers

I need help in getting prescribed muscle relaxers. I dont wanna seem like a DRUG ADDICT... BECAUSE I'M NOT!! But, how do i get my dr to give me what i need???.. I've been in pain for quite some time and my body just isnt the same as it used to be.... I dont want to list all the drugs that i HAVE BEEN taking... but, i just need something (on going) so that, i can get back to my normal life. Any ideas??? Almost anything you do, if you suffer chronic pain, is viewed as drug seeking behavior. Going to multiple doctors in an attempt to get help? Yeah, you're a drug seeker. Asking for a higher dose? Drug seeker. Hoarding? Drug seeker. Questions or complaints about random drug panel policies? Drug seeker. Past history of recreational drug use? You're a drug seeker. ## It honest...

Soma V 2410 Pill Information

soma v 2410 ## Found a match it's Carisoprodol 350 mg, which is a centrally-acting skeletal muscle relaxant whose active metabolite is meprobamate. To learn more click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I have a pill that I believe is SOMA. It says 5513 on one side and DAN on the other. Can anyone confirm that this is Soma and what dose is it? ## Yes, it is Soma and the makers are Watson. It's a good and genuine Soma to have. :) ## Hey Barbara. Please help me find out which pharmacies carry V 2410 by Watson. All I get here is cheap brands that don't help any. I have neck spasms regularly due to two shoulder surgeries. Pharmacies here only prescribe cheap generics. Thank you for your kindness. Call me Uncl...

2410 v soma difference from dan 350

How are they different, Dan one side other side 350, pill found one side blank other side 2410 with v? ## Different in what way? They are a fine generic substitution! ## Hello, Roxie! How are you? They are the same medication, if I'm understanding you correctly (you meant the tablet with the DAN 5513 on it?), they've just been manufactured by different companies, which is very common with generics.

Soma (carisoprodol): Cor 103 vs Dan 5513

Which soma (carisoprodol) generic is best? I'm reading that the 'cor 103' makes you feel like you took a narcotic but isn't. Sounds nice as I do not like them either but the relief they provided. I have been on dans for years but seeing this makes me want to give this generic a try. Any feedback? Watson (Actavis - Mayne pharma) - dan 5513 Sandoz - cor 103 Sun - 446 Qualitest - V Med Pharma - MP Aurobindo ## There is no way to suggest any given best one for any certain person, you really just have to try them and see what works best for you, since we are all different. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and drowsiness. Personally, I haven't tried this medication. Can anyone that has tried it chime in? T...
