What is Soma?
Soma 250mg is a muscle relaxer that blocks pain sensations between the nerves and the brain.
Soma 250mg should only be used for short periods (up to two or three weeks) because there is no evidence of its effectiveness in long-term use and most skeletal muscle injuries are generally of short duration.
You should not take Soma 250mg if you have porphyria (a genetic enzyme disorder that causes symptoms affecting the skin or nervous system) or are allergic to carisoprodol or meprobamate.
Carisoprodol may be habit-forming. Never share this medicine with another person. Misuse of habit-forming medicine can cause addiction, overdose, or death.
Soma 350mg can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol. It can increase drowsiness and dizziness caused by this medicine.
Usual Adult Dose for Muscle Spasm:
250 to 350 mg orally 3 times a day and at bedtime
Duration of therapy: Up to 2 to 3 weeks
If I miss a dose, what happens?
If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Two doses should not be taken at the same time.
Overdosing: what happens?
Call 1-800-222-1222 for poison help or seek emergency medical attention. Taking carisoprodol with alcohol or other drugs that slow your breathing can lead to an overdose of carisoprodol.
Symptoms of an overdose may include vision problems, confusion, hallucinations, muscle stiffness, loss of coordination, fainting, seizure, or coma.
Avoid these mistakes
Do not drink alcohol. Dangerous side effects could occur.
Avoid driving or hazardous activity until you know how this medicine will affect you. Dizziness or drowsiness can cause falls, accidents, or severe injuries.
