Carlsodol review

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

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

A patient experiencing either a serious side effect or an allergic reaction needs to immediately seek emergency medical attention. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include facial swelling, swelling 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 healthcare professional. Patients need to report all side effects they experience to their healthcare professional. Less serious side effects include headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, tremors, depression, insomnia, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and hiccups. These can be reduced to a tolerable level by reducing the dose of Carlsodol.

Carlsodol needs to be taken as prescribed by your healthcare professional. If you miss a dose, the dose should be taken as soon as it is 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 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 with Carlsodol so a thorough medical history should be discussed before your healthcare professional prescribes this medication. Patients need to alert their healthcare professional before taking any new medications, including over the counter and prescription medications and herbal remedies. Medications with a known negative interaction with Carlsodol include alcohol, cough and cold medications, some antidepressants, and medications proven to cause drowsiness.

This medication 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 medication or alcohol dependency.
