Carisoprodol, or Soma, as it’s becoming more and more recognizable as, is a highly effective muscle relaxant drug. Soma (Carisoprodol) is very effective when it comes to treating spasms and pain that are the consequence of most conditions and injuries affecting the skeletal muscles. You can sometimes get Soma under the Carisoprodol name, as a generic, cheaper alternative to the brand name product. Although you can save a lot this way, make sure that you are getting your meds, both brand name and generic only through a reputable online source.

Soma works by blocking the electric impulses that are sent through the spinal cord and the rest of the central nervous system (CNS) when an skeletal muscle is tense or injured. By blocking the electro communication on the intra-neural level, Soma enables the injured muscles to relax, since there’s no impulse that’s keeping them tense anymore. Soma (Carisoprodol) is really invaluable when it comes to treating the pain caused by the injuries of skeletal muscles, like lower back pain, neck pain and tension headaches. However, if you are experiencing pain that is caused by a different injury or condition, Soma (Carisoprodol) might not be effective and you should look for an more general pain medication.

Soma is generally speaking safe to use and free from side effects, provided that you don’t take more than 1000 milligrams per day, divided into three doses (in effect, one 350 mg Carisoprodol pill every eight hours, or until the symptoms go away). However, if you use Soma for prolonged periods of time and in dosages that are significantly higher than the prescribed ones, or if you combine Soma with alcohol, street drugs, pain killers, sedatives, tranquilizers, narcotics or any other brain function depressant, there’s a chance that you might develop an addiction to the substance. Individuals who have a history of substance abuse, such as alcoholism are most susceptible to developing a dependency to Soma (Carisoprodol). To avoid the chance of forming a habit, you should make sure that you use Soma only to treat the symptoms, and never mix it with other drugs or alcohol. Also, if you are using Soma regularly for more than a few weeks, make sure that you never go above the prescribed dosage, and if possible, take a brake after every two weeks of Soma therapy.

Soma works to reduce pain and increase mobility in the skeletal muscles by relaxing the tense and clenched muscles. The way Soma is formulated ensures the maximum, quickest possible relief to pain and discomfort that’s often associated with muscle spasms, muscle strains and sprains, and all other muscle and ligament related injuries.  You should make sure that you take Soma and other Carisoprodol based muscle relaxants after a meal, to ensure that your stomach will not get upset. Soma is very efficient at providing instantaneous, but temporary pain relief, and it will not help treat the actual injury that’s causing the pain, so make sure that you combine Carisoprodol therapy with sufficient rest, physical therapy, and any other therapeutic activity your doctor or physical therapist might have recommended
