Muscle Spasms Comparing Modern Drugs and Homeopathic Medicine

Soma (generic name: carisoprodol; brand names include: Carimax / Sanoma / Carisoma) is a muscle relaxant used to treat pain caused by muscle spasms.

It is indicated as an adjunct to rest, physical therapy, and other measures for the relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions in patients 12 years of age and above.

Soma works to relax the muscles by blocking pain messages sent to the brain. The ingredient Carisoprodol is a pain reliever that changes the way a body senses pain. The onset of action is rapid and lasts four to six hours.

Soma is useful against various types of pain (whether or not related to muscle spasm).

Soma may be prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.

Soma is taken orally. Usually it is taken three times daily and at bedtime and may be taken with or without food. The usual adult dosage of soma is one 350 mg tablet, three times daily and at bedtime.

Usage in patients under age 12 is not recommended. It is recommended that you take Soma with food, or with milk, to minimize the likelihood that you will suffer an upset stomach as a result of taking the medication.

If you forget to take Soma, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

Store this medicine at controlled room temperature 20 to 25 C.
