Soma review

Soma, which is generically prescribed as carisoprodol, is a muscle relaxant used to treat injury and other conditions which cause muscle or bone pain. Soma is typically used in conjunction with rest and physical therapy.

Soma is not appropriate for everyone. A thorough medical history should be assessed prior to prescribing this medication. Patients with a medical history which includes drug addiction, allergies to meprobamate, porphyria, liver disease, kidney disease, epilepsy, or other seizure disorder may not be able to take Soma or may require careful monitoring while undergoing drug therapy with this medication, depending on the condition and the severity of the condition.

The American Food and Drug Administration rated this medication as a pregnancy risk category C. Soma may cause harm or birth defects to an unborn baby. It has yet to be determined whether or not this medication passes through the mother’s breast milk and affects a nursing baby. The prescribing physician should not prescribe this medication to a pregnant or nursing woman, or to a woman who is likely to become pregnant.

There is a risk of side effects associated with Soma, some of which are severe. A patient who is experiencing a serious side effect or an allergic reaction should seek immediate emergency medical treatment. An allergic reaction will present with symptoms which include facial swelling, including swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue, or throat, hives, and difficulty breathing. Other serious side effects which require emergency medical attention include symptoms such as extreme weakness, loss of balance or coordination, paralysis, lightheadedness and fainting, fast heart beat, convulsions, vision loss, agitation, and confusion.

Other less serious side effects typically do not require emergency medical attention but should be reported to the prescribing physician. Patients should be encouraged to report all side effects. Less serious side effects include symptoms such as headache, drowsiness, mild tremor, depression, irritability, insomnia, hiccups, nausea vomiting, or upset stomach. Less serious side effects can often be reduced to a more tolerable level if the dosage of Soma is reduced.

Soma should be taken exactly as it has been prescribed by the physician. If the patient misses 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 the potential for an overdose. The patient should never take a double dose of this medication. If an overdose is suspected, the patient should seek immediate emergency medical attention. An overdose will present with symptoms which include fast heart rate, vision problems, shallow breathing, confusion, hallucinations, muscle stiffness, lightheadedness, fainting, and seizures.

There is a risk of negative drug interactions associated with Soma. A thorough medical history should be understood prior to prescribing this medication. Patients should be urged to inquire with the prescribing physician before taking any new medications, including over the counter medication and herbal remedies. Medications that have known interactions with Soma include cough and cold medicine, anxiety medications, muscle relaxants, narcotic pain relievers, and other medications which are known to cause drowsiness.

This medication has been proven to be addictive. Patients with a history of chemical dependency should not take Soma. Patients without a history of dependency are still at risk for addiction, especially patients experiencing high levels of life stressors.
