Carisoma review

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

Carisoma is not for everyone so a thorough medical history should be taken prior to a physician 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 Carisoma 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 Carisoma in pregnancy risk category C. This means that Carisoma 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, physicians should not prescribe this medication to patients who are pregnant or nursing.

Side effects are possible with Carisoma, some of which are severe. A patient experiencing a serious side effect or an allergic reaction should immediately seek emergency medical attention. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include facial skin edema, skin edema 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 physician. Patients should report all side effects that they experience to their physicians. Less serious side effects include cephalalgias, drowsiness, dizziness, tremors, depression, insomnia, drowsiness, nausea, emesis, constipation, and hiccups. These can often be reduced to a tolerable level by reducing the dosage of Carisoma.

Carisoma should be taken as prescribed by your physician. 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 Carisoma. A thorough medical history should be taken before your physician prescribes this medication. Patients need to inquire with their physician before taking any new medications, including over the counter and prescription medications and herbal remedies. Medications with a known negative interaction with Carisoma 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.
