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...

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...

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?

my mom has been taking somas and her doctor changed her meds and she is skeptical of new medicene. ## no baclofen is not exactly the same as soma. they are both muscle relaxers but baclofen is a little stronger. i had been on soma and flexeril for over two years and now they have switched me to baclofen. it does work alot better for muscle spasms ## Am wanting to know at what rate baclofen treatment can be tapered off and the risk affects if stopped abruptly ## baclofen work alot better than soma it really releives the pain quicker than soma. ## IMy doctor just gave me Baclodol 5mg/300mg carisoprodol (soma). Strange thing is I can't find any info on this pill that tells me what else is in the pill, btw, they are not as good a reuglar soma. ## i get bad tightness in ny muscles within...

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 ...

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...

The Dan Soma seems to give me more relief... Is the Dan Soma a better quality? ## No complaints. Easy to find ## There can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, so that one may have a little bit more in it, so it works better for you.

What is this pill? ? I just want to know out of curiosity. Its small white round with N028 on one side and has a straight line on the other side like asperin ## Hello, Jane! How are you?

Can you please double check the imprint and post back? Thanks! ## It is a muscle relaxant or anti-spasm medication. It is 10mg. I take 2 every 4 hours for back problems along with Multiple Sclerosis. ## It's 10 mg Baclofen. It's a muscle relaxer. I have a prescription of this. ## Metoclopramide thats the name of the pill you was asking about ## That is not accurate. It is Baclofen, a muscle relaxer. I have a prescription for this medication.

My sister has been using Baclofen to self medicate. She has overused the drug so much that she now hallucinates and is paranoid. She has been in and out of rehabs and psych units. What is the long term effect of this medication? I am afraid that it has put her over the edge. Please advise. ## Hello Debbie, Overuse of Baclofen can lead to numerous side effects, many of which can be dangerous. It's critical to restrict the intake of Baclofen to 80 mg per day (maximum for an adult). Hallucinations are typically not a result of overdose, but rather from abruptly discontinuing the medication. You should never immediately stop Baclofen intake. Instead, you need to gradually taper down the intake of Baclofen and then discontinue it. For instance, if the medication is stopped one day and th...

I'm trying to a identify a pill I found in our couch. Probably something over-the-counter, but I can't find any info. It's a small, white, round pill. It's blank on one side, with an underlined capital H on the other. ## its a muscle relaxer thats all i know ## it is cigarrest-no smoking tablet -its a natural homeopathic medicine ## how do you know it is a musle relaxer? ## according to pharmer.org, it is a homeopathic tablet for jet lag. ## It is not a muscle relaxer. ## It's a migraine blocker. I'm trying to search to get more info and I found this chat. I threw the box out and all I have is the packet it's in.

White round pill about the same size of a Soma with small brown specks. No imprints or score lines. Found in a little baggy. See picture: ## With no markings, it is impossible to postiviely identify these, unless you would have them lab tested. We can be sure, though, that they aren't a US prescription medication, as they all MUST have unique imprints to enable identification. There are several items on the market that could match this, such as Senosside laxatives or even some Extasy tablets. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## small white round pill, no markings completely flat on both sides approx 1/8in diameter 1/16in thick ## Almost definitely a recreational pill - although whether it contains ecstacy is actually questionable since th...

My doctor has told me that that soma is a narcotic and she does not want to prescribe it to me any more. I suffer from chronic back pain as well as muscle spasms. I have tried other muscle relaxers as well as anti inflamatories and none of then do not work. Soma is the only one I have found to work for me without making me sleepy. Any information you can give me i would really appreciate. Thank you, Dana ## No, it is not a narcotic, nor is it related to opioid pain relievers. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol. It has, however, been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. ## Soma - Do they come up on a U/A? Since you say it's not a narcotic what do they come up as? ## I have ankylosing spondylitis. Other than the Enbrel and other such meds, what is ...

I took 900mg of flexeril and I need to know what side effects this drug has on a male genital area? The doctors said I was not suppose to make it through this overdose, but I did. But now my penis is not the same in length nor girth. I need more information on side effects and possible conditions this type of overdose might cause in this area. ## Well, that was a crazy thing to do! I am an RN, and you should be glad it didn't kill you. I would ask your dr about your issues with penis; I don't know of any such side effects from my other OD pts that I have had. Good luck. ## why would you do something so stupid? Is a penis size worth dying for?? Wake up ! ## Jonathan, you took 900mg of Flexeril, were brought out of an OD.

I am writing this thread forum to discuss the shortage on soma and carisoprodol. Recently even the best pharmacies in my area are completely out of soma. Had to wait a week just to get my second best preferred soma 350mg generic. I had to settle for Jubliant Cadista Pharma generics which are the imprinted OP 35 white tablets. I have been on the Watson formulation for over 5 years which are imprinted DAN 5513. Luckily when Activas Elizabeth / Mayne Pharma acquired Watson Pharma then of which now Teva Pharma has acquired Activas medications. Activas was smart as they kept the Watson formulation of soma and dispensed the watson generic formulation. Last month I was able to find the watson DAN 5513 tablets and was informed they would have them in stock in future no problem. This was not the...

What is Cyclobenzaprine (5%) + Lidocaine (5%) ointment used for? ## This ointment is usually specially ordered by a doctor to treat topical pain due to bruising, nerve pain, injury, or other conditions as deemed appropriate by your doctor. Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant, and Lidocaine is a mild anesthetic that is commonly used topically. Ref: Cyclobenzaprine and Lidocaine Information. When used topically, the FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, flaking, and irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

white, round pill, with 503 imprinted on one side and an X on the other ## This tablet is manufactured by Caraco Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 4mgs of Tizanidine, which is a muscle relaxant that is used to treat the pain associated with muscle sprains, strains, and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Will a round white pill with 503 on one side and a cross on other turn up on a U/A? I have only taken one 2 days ago and have a U/A on the 18th, about 3 days from now.

Is it possible to get the Teva brand Soma dispensed when I fill my prescription? Are they the ones marked 2410V, or the Dan 5513 Soma? ## As of 7/21/21 the Teva availability was not good.
