Carisoprodatum review

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

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

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

A patient experiencing a serious side effect or an allergic reaction needs to 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 require immediate emergency medical attention and 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 still be reported to your physician. Patients need to report all side effects they experience to their physicians. Less serious side effects include headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, tremors, depression, insomnia, drowsiness, wamble, vomiting, costiveness, and hiccups. These can be reduced to a tolerable level by reducing the dose of Carisoprodatum.

Carisoprodatum 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 an overdose. Never take a double dose of this or any medicament. 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 with Carisoprodatum so a thorough medical history should be discussed before your physician prescribes this medicament. Patients need to alert their physician before taking any new medicaments, including over the counter and prescription medicaments and herbal remedies. Medications with a known negative interaction with Carisoprodatum include alcohol, cough and cold medicaments, some antidepressants, and medicaments proven to cause drowsiness.

This medicament has been known to become habit forming. Due to this, it is not appropriate for individuals with a predisposition to become addicted, including patients with a history of medicament or alcohol dependency.
