Soma, or rather Carisoprodol is a prescription only muscle relaxant that has found itself more and more in the centre of the controversy due to it’s abuse potential. It’s one of the cheaper drugs on the market and it prescribed by a wide range of doctors and physicians, especially home therapists and that’s what makes it so popular.
It’s low price made it a target for abuse because it carries some risk. It’s got sedative powers that can impair the ability of the user’s muscles to function if taken during extended time periods and should not be used by people operating heavy machinery or trying to perform delicate tasks.
Soma is usually prescribed in the cases where there is some muscle tissue damage because it functions not as your regular muscle relaxant, rather it is a centrally acting synthetic skeletal muscle relaxant that is related pharmacologically to meprobamate, an agent that has moderate additive properties. Therapists should really be wary of this aspect of Soma seeing how symptoms of withdrawal can be rather severe and can even lead to coma, so it is not a prescription recommended for people who have history of substance abuse. Also, internists, surgeons, anesthesiologists and neurologists should be aware of possible allergic reaction to Soma which is carisoprodol or meprobamate related, so if you are a doctor who has the power to prescribe this drug or if you are being prescribed you should double check your allergies. Due to it’s potential for abuse you should also check the full medical history before prescribing Soma.
Another case where Soma is definitely not recommended are pregnant women, since the degree of danger of soma elements ending up in the breastfeeding milk is not yet properly determined and may be potentially harmful to the baby. There are some other potential side effects that vary from mild like headaches to severe like seizures, and with men that are not prone to seizures in the first place at that, while ones that are didn’t have them aggravated by the Soma intake. Vertigo, dizziness, insomnia, nausea and vomiting have all been reported as side effects of Soma use.
