Muscle Relaxer Overview

A muscle relaxant is a drug that affects skeletal muscle function and decreases the muscle tone. It may be used to alleviate symptoms such as muscle spasms, pain, and hyperreflexia. The term "muscle relaxant" is used to refer to two major therapeutic groups: neuromuscular blockers and spasmolytics. Neuromuscular blockers act by interfering with transmission at the neuromuscular end plate and have no central nervous system (CNS) activity. They are often used during surgical procedures and in i...

CVS no longer carries Soma

My Rite Aid closed so I had my medicine filled at CVS in Arizona. Found out they haven't sold Soma in a few years. Safeway told me a year. Yet Kroger & Walmart sell it. I've just lost 6 months worth. I'm sure my Doctor will help me when I return in a few weeks. I miss Rite Aid already, they were very nice, and sold Soma! ## Hey Eddy! Sorry to hear that! I get mine from CVS here in Texas? ## Thank you Sandra, I called and asked CVS how I could transfer my prescription to WalMart. The answer was you can't ## A big thank you to Walmart, a store that I have hardly used. They had to order my amount, 270 for a 3 month supply, I can't believe the price, $2.27. I was paying over $20 at Rite Aid, the retail price is $137 without any discounts. I knew Rite Aid was overchar...

Muscle relaxers for disk problems, a knee replacement, as well as arthritis

I have degenerate disk problems, a knee replacement, as well as arthritis, and I can't get any muscle relaxer that actually works. Why? ## Well when you bones have structure issues the muscles try to hold the cartilage & ligaments that's left in place .... when a muscle reader relaxes the muscles it may relax the muscles but it removes the support of the cartilage & ligaments & transfers the stress points to those connective tissues & being in same proximity it just appears that the relaxers are not working .....imo ## What are you expecting them to do? They are not pain relievers, and will only work to help relax muscle tissue, none of the conditions you've mentioned are muscle based, so a muscle relaxant won't help much with any of them. Ref: Muscle Rel...

Using Skelaxin for muscle spasms

Has anyone read about or experienced Complex Regional Pain Syndrome while taking Skelaxin? Also, is it ok to take over a long period of time? ## It can be taken as long as your doctor feels it is safe, and beneficial for you to do so. I took it for chronic pain for several years, and had no problems with it, though I will see I found its benefits to be minimal. The FDA lists the typical side effects for Skelaxin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and drowsiness. Ref: Skelaxin Information Are you on any other medications?

Managing Multiple Medications: My Experience with Norgesic, OxyContin, Lyrica, Antidepressants, and more.

I have been taking Norgesic for 18 months with 40mg of OxyContin 2 times daily & Lyrica 150mg as well as antidepressants, blood pressure medication of 80mg, as well as cholesterol tablets, plus 5mg of Endone (OxyContin). I take all this everyday, but sometimes I won’t take the Norgesic or the 10 Endone because I am so over it I can’t remember things sometimes. Has anyone else been on a similar regimen? ## When I took oxycodone and gabapentin together I couldn’t remember anything ever so I’m impressed you’re even managing this well because Lyrica is a lot stronger than gabapentin. The best way for me to keep track of multiple meditations is that I put them all in one of those Sunday through Saturday sorters, then I have another small container in my bag ...

Somas and tennessee law

i was on soma approx 10yrs then 1 1/2yrs ago my dr said she couldnt write prescriptions for them anymore i have taken 5 different relaxers and nothing works like soma. why cant i get them now? ## Well a couple years back Soma was re classified as a schedule 4 medicine and many Doctors don't like to write for it. Funny thing, I have had 3 doctors since the new law prescribe me Soma, go figure! ## Soma is the most commonly abused muscle relaxant, because it is so potent. And Eddy is correct, it was changed to a schedule IV controlled substance several years ago. As such, to have them prescribed on any long-term, ongoing basis, you'd need to be seeing a specialist, such as a pain management physician. ## Can soma be prescribed with oxycodone? ## Very doubtful with the new regulatio...
