Soma is one of the most popular and effective drugs that are used to relieve muscle spasms in locomotor system disorders.
Soma is an effective centrally-acting muscle relaxant, manufactured by Meda. Soma exerts a relaxing effect on the muscles, and can also cause strong sedative and anxiolytic effects.
Soma is prescribed for adults over 16 years of age. This muscle relaxant is highly effective in alleviating muscle spasms or seizures, caused by emotional stress, static muscle tension, trauma or diseases of the musculoskeletal system (e.g., osteochondrosis).
- The active ingredient of Soma is Carisoprodol.
- For today, you can buy in drugstores 250 mg or 350 mg Soma tablets.
- Until 1974, Soma was also available in capsule form of 250 mg.
For more than 50 years, Meda has also produced two combined preparations Soma Compound, which in addition to Carisoprodol also contained Aspirin and Codeine. However, their production was discontinued in 2013, and today Soma Compound is not available for sale.
Nevertheless, if you need a complex therapy, you can buy Soma and Codeine or Aspirin at the pharmacy to take them together. If you have additional questions about the joint use of these drugs, you can ask the pharmacist, while purchasing Soma at the pharmacy.
- Depending on the intensity of muscle or joint pain, it is recommended to take 750 mg to 1050 mg of Soma per day, divided into three equal doses.
- Soma helps relieve discomfort in the joints or muscles for about two weeks of use.
- The maximum duration of Soma course is three weeks.
Soma contributes to a significant relief of muscle pain, cramps or discomfort. Soma inhibits interneuron activity in the brain and spinal cord, which leads to muscle relaxation and regulation of muscle tone.
Soma exerts the maximum therapeutic effect in about one and a half to two hours after its administration. The maximum half-life of Soma is approximately 10 hours, so the interval between doses should not be less.
To get rid of muscle spasms today, order Soma pills in an online pharmacy right now. This muscle relaxant is sold by prescription, yet you can buy Soma without a prescription in some online pharmacies.
Because of a high risk of sedation, precautions should be taken when using Soma in conjunction with alcohol or drugs that inhibit brain activity, including:
- benzodiazepines (Klonopin)
- opioid analgesics (Ultram)
- tricyclic antidepressants (Anafranil)
Before the start of a Soma course, pregnant women with muscle spasms should determine the appropriateness of using it. In nursing mothers who take Soma, the secretion of breast milk may decrease.
At an abrupt course discontinuation, Soma can cause tremors of the limbs, abdominal cramps, and insomnia. In addition, prolonged use of Soma in high doses increases the risk of dependence.
Soma has sedative effects, and can cause drowsiness, headaches, or dizziness. However, the results of clinical trials on Soma confirm that the potential benefit from its use exceeds any risks by far.
Soma has been available for sale since 1959, and has been very popular among therapists and their patients for more than 55 years. To date, Soma is not supplied to some European countries, including the UK, Sweden and Norway.
However, you can order Soma tablets in online pharmacies anywhere in the world, including the EU countries. In Canada and Australia, you can buy Soma generics, which are produced under the generic name Carisoprodol. They are produced by such companies, as Sun Pharma, Aurobindo, Watson and Vintage.
