Expired Carisoprodol (Soma)

I am in excruciating pain. I found an old script for Soma that expired in 1996. Can I take it without doing any harm? ## You could although it may not work like it did when new ## Yes, Eddy is correct, expired medications can be less effective than when they were fresh and new. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. This is also not a pain reliever, it is a muscle relaxant, so it may not help you in the way you wish. Are you on any other medications? Have you consulted your doctor? ## Pharmacist are eager to hurt and not help. They have no idea what your medical condition is and don’t care. They are judgmental, especially if you are in pain and old. Maybe they should take an oath. “First Do No Harm.”. Hu...

SOMA/CARISOPRODOLUS

HAVING UNENDING MUSCLE SPASMS IN UPPER BACK, ALMOST BAD AS A KIDNEY STONE PAIN YEARS AGO. WHICH IS BETTER I HAVE HAD SOMA,AND SOME PEOPLE SAY FLEXERIL.SOMA JUST MADE ME SLEEPY,ALSO TRIED HYDROCODON#5OT MUCH BETTER? ## Have you consulted a doctor? Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol and Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, both of which are muscle relaxants, so they will only help if your pain and problems are caused strictly from muscle pain and spasms. Hydrocodone is a narcotic, that may help with most types of pain and there are higher dosages available that contain 7.5mgs and 10mgs of it. However, only your doctor is going to be able to help you determine what is causing the problem and arrive at a proper treatment option. ## Soma is the only med I...

Carisoprodol Muscle Relaxer

## What is this medication prescribed for? ## Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxant. It is used to treat injuries and other painful muscular conditions. I am thinking it's similar to Soma (?) ## I currently take this medication and it is a muscle relaxer but also used as a sleep aid. It is the same as Soma. It's the generic substitute... I've had good results with it and no side effects except it makes me sleepy. ## It is the active ingredient in Soma, so it is the generic for it. It is used to treat the pain associated with muscle strains, pain, and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with?

Tensapriv

muscle relaxant ## I am finding it listed as a muscle relaxant on several Spanish websites, but I cannot find a listing of what it contains. As a group, though, muscle relaxants generally cause such side effects as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache. Does anyone else have more information on this and its active ingredient? ## Carisodoprol 350mg per pil ## correction there... Carisoprodol at 350 mg per pill ## tensapriv ## Is real good stuff, kinda like a Qaalude. Just be very very careful not to take more than prescribed dose. This med. seems kinda innocent however a false misleading feeling of more is better. It is an older med. and has history of putting you to sleep forever; yeah mortality if too much taken. I have read that the newer muscle relaxants reduce likelihood of a ...

Substitute for carisoprodol?

I've got crushed vertebrae at T6,7&8, ruptured discs there crushing my spinal cord by 50%, ruptured discs & nerve impingement at cervical, thoracic & lumbar spine levels. Plus i have scoliosis. DDD & DJD. It's all inoperable. I've had years of physical therapy, been through pain management programs, back school & to multiple pain management Drs. In addition to spinal injuries, I have torn rotator cuffs, severe osteoarthritis & bursitis in my hands, spine and knees, and it's working on my right hip now! I'm 63 and feel much older most days. I spent years on heavy duty opiates, anti-inflammatory drugs (ruined my stomach, I can't take them at all anymore), mega doses of neurontin, steroids...enough! I stopped all of those 8 years ago. Most da...

HAB pharmacy in India mfg pain-o-soma

I filled a prescription for 350 mg Carisoprodol Pain-O-Soma and can't tell if they are for real or not - they are plain white pills with no imprint on one side and a vertical line on the other side. Just want to know if they are pure or cut with aspirin? They came from India in prepackages of 10 each. Are they the real thing or cut with aspirin or something? ## I did the India thing once and they were very weak. It cost $120. The other day I picked up a bottle at my local Rite Aid, it was $1.20. Now that Soma is a C4 controlled medicine I'm not sure I would ever order it again as it is a Felony ## Greetings Karen, According to the FDA regulations all controlled medication, such as somas, are required to be identifiable through the imprint, color, size and shape. If the medicatio...

Carisoprodol, why short term medicine?

What is all the hype about taking carisprodol when you have had 2 neck, 4 back surgeries and osteoarthritis so bad that my fingers on my right hand can't even lift a cup or glass??? I am 60 years old. I do take ms contin, and Xanax for pain and anxiety. I have been on these meds for years. I can't hardly get out of bed in the morning if I am not up all night with pain and gastro problems. I have Lupus and severe fibromyalgia. I had my left hip replaced and after that cervical fusion and lower lumbar fusion. The doctors went to town on me! I hurt 90 percent of the time. I have taken more soma than 20 qty. for 30 days (90qty for 30 days) in the past ten years. I went off the soma for 1 year in exchange for 1 more Xanax a day. Although my muscular problems still existed. Now my Dr ...

SG 109 Carisoprodol

I have taken soma/carisoprodol. However, is taking SG 109 similar to Dan 5513? ## Yes, they both contain 350mgs of Carisoprodol, which is a muscle relaxant, they're just manufactured by different companies. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Are the "sg109" the same as "5513 dan" soma? They are the same right? ## What is the difference? I know 20% is allowed, which is ridiculous. So how is the "SG 109 white round pill" rated compared to Dan, Soma, etc.? Who makes SG 109? I know there are bad ones out there. By the texture alone I can tell. ## I don't like the SG 109 they have a different texture to me. and I don't get the relief i do from th...

Large pill SG 109

What is a large unscored white pill with SG 109 on one side and blank on the other side ## Hello, Steven! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by SciGen Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 350mgs of Carisoprodol. The FDA classifies this medication as a muscle relaxant that is used to alleviate the pain associated with strains, sprains and spasms and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## This pill does nothing, must be stale. ## This white round pill SG 109, labeled as "carisoprodol" is junk! I've taken SOMA for 15 years and have never ran into the problem of having them filled and not having the right medication. I believe this is one of two things due to how non effe...
