Carisoprodol Overview

Carisoprodol, marketed under the brand name Somadril among others, is a prescription drug marketed since 1959.

Can different brands of carisoprodol work differently?
86 Replies RSS Share
I have been using soma/carisoprodol for many years. Usually the paharmacy gives me generic from Watson or Qaulitest. Last time I got the meds it was manufac. by Carimax. It didn't work as well. Do different brands work differently? ## Yes, there can be some differences in generic drugs, the FDA allows a window, of the active ingredient, of up to plus or minus 20% from the name brand product. This can cause variations, where you may, in some rare cases, receive less of a dosage than normal and it may not be as effective. Do you have any other questions? ## Is there any way to tell by the brand names? That way I could avoid the lesser dosage. ## No, there really isn't, other than by your experience. I wish there was, it would make it easier for many people, if they knew what compa...

Carisoprodol/Soma - need a doctor to prescribe it!
52 Replies RSS Share
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.

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...

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

Expired Carisoprodol (Soma)
2 Replies RSS Share
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?
