Product Description

Soma is the brand name of Carisoprodol, which is a centrally-acting muscle relaxant. The prescription medication is classified as schedule IV in the US due to its mild potential for abuse. The drug can help provide relief for users with chronic pain from musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. It can even be used to relieve soreness and muscle tightness in persons who have worked out too hard, particularly athletes. The standard time of recommended use of Soma is two to three weeks for sufficient recovery from the condition being treated.

How does Soma work?

The exact working mechanism of Soma is currently unknown. The drug largely produces the effects of muscle relaxation by converting to a meprobamate. The pain relieving and muscle relaxing effects of Soma can be felt throughout the body and not just in the affected area. Since the drug has meprobamate properties, this results in the metabolites accumulating in the system with prolonged use. The muscle relaxer begins to works within thirty minutes of taking it and the effects last for about six hours.

Soma dosing information

Soma can be obtained as compressed tablets in the dosage strengths of 250mg and 350mg. The dose is prescribed for use according to the severity of the condition and by also taking into account the patient’s response to the drug, which changes from person to person. The drug may be taken three times a day. The dosage period advised is usually two to three weeks, unless the healthcare provider indicates otherwise. Prolonged use can quickly build tolerance and dependence. This would also make it difficult to stop taking the drug without experiencing some form of withdrawal symptoms.

What is the effective way to take Soma?

It is most effective when taken according to the instructions provided by the healthcare provider. You can also read the dosing information on the prescription label to know how exactly the drug should be taken. The muscle relaxant should never be used for longer than recommended or in higher the prescribed dose.

The drug can become habit-forming, which is why it should not be shared with any person and taken only by the one prescribed for it. Persons with a history of drug or alcohol abuse should not have access to the drug unless it is prescribed by the doctor for use. Keep track of the number of pills used to be aware of any improper use.

Another important instruction is not to discontinue using the drug suddenly but get help from the doctor to taper the dose. Prolonged use of Soma leaves the individual at risk of experiencing severe withdrawal side effects that may even require hospitalization or can be similar to alcohol withdrawal effects.

Missed dose

The missed dose should be taken immediately after remembering to do so. Skip the missed dose completely and do not double the dose if the next scheduled dose is already close.

Overdose

Overdose of Soma should be treated without delay by calling the poison helpline or emergency medical services. Symptoms of overdose include confusion, hallucinations, shallow breathing, fainting, trouble with vision, and even coma.
