Carisol review

Carisol, also prescribed as Soma and Vanadom, is used to treat injuries and musculoskeletal conditions that cause pain. Carisol works by relaxing muscles and blocking the pain sensations sent by the nerves and registering in the brain.

Carisol is not for everyone so a thorough medical history should be taken prior to a doctor prescribing this medication. Patients with a history including medication addiction, liver disease, kidney disease, epilepsy, or other seizure disorder may not be able to take Carisol or may require monitoring while taking this medication, depending on the condition and the severity of the condition. This medication has not been approved for children under the age of 12.

The FDA rated Carisol in pregnancy risk category C. This means that Carisol is known to cause harm or birth defects in fetuses. It has not been determined whether this medication passes through the mother's breast milk thereby affecting a nursing baby. Due to the uncertainty, doctors should not prescribe this medication to patients who are pregnant or nursing.

Some side effects are possible with Carisol, some of which are severe. A patient experiencing a serious side effect or an allergic reaction should immediately seek emergency medical attention. An allergic reaction includes symptoms such as facial swelling, swelling of the lips, mouth, throat, and tongue, hives, and difficulty breathing. Serious side effects, which require immediate emergency medical attention, include convulsions, vision loss, paralysis, lightheadedness, fainting, extreme weakness, loss of balance or coordination, agitation, confusion, or fast heart rate.

Less serious side effects do not require emergency medical attention but should be reported to your doctor. Patients should report all side effects that they experience to their doctors. Less serious side effects include cephalalgias, drowsiness, dizziness, tremors, depression, insomnia, drowsiness, wamble, vomiting, constipation, and hiccups. These can often be reduced to a tolerable level by reducing the dose of Carisol.

Carisol should be taken precisely as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, the dose should be taken as soon as remembered. However, if it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, the missed dose should be skipped to avoid the possibility of an overdose. Never take a double dose of this or any medication. If an overdose is suspected, immediately seek emergency medical attention. Overdose symptoms include breathing problems, shallow breathing, vision problems, fast heartbeat, confusion, hallucinations, convulsions, muscle stiffness, fainting, and tremors.

There is a risk of negative interactions associated with Carisol. A thorough medical history should be taken before your doctor prescribes this medication. Patients need to inquire with their doctor before taking any new medications, including over the counter and prescription medications and herbal remedies. Medications with a known negative interaction with Carisol include alcohol, cough and cold medications, some antidepressants, and medications proven to cause drowsiness.

This medication may become habit forming. As such, it is not appropriate for individuals with a predisposition to become addicted, including patients with a history of medication or alcohol dependency.
