Soma is also known as the Carisoprodol and it is a kind of muscle relaxer that can prevent any kind of pain sensation that happens in between the brain and the nerves. This is mainly prescribed with the combination of physical therapy and adequate rest when there are certain muscle injuries and skeletal muscle tissues.

One can buy soma medicine for muscle relaxants and use them for a short period of time like 2 to 3 weeks because they are not much effective in long term use. Also, mostly all the skeletal muscle injuries happen to stay for a short time only.

But one must stay away from this medicine if they have a kind of genetic enzyme disorder or Porphyria which can affect the nervous system and the skin or if they are allergic to Carisoprodol.

Also, this medicine can be habit-forming. If one misuses them then this can cause overdose, addiction, and other health hazards.

Carisoprodol can also cause certain side effects which can impair one’s reactions and thinking processes. One thus needs to avoid drinking alcohol when they are under this medication because it can increase dizziness and drowsiness.

One can also face some withdrawal symptoms when one suddenly stops taking Soma after having them for a long period of time. So, one must not stop them all of a sudden but decrease the dosage of it slowly and then stop it completely.
Soma should not be taken by an individual if they are suffering from:
• Heavy allergic conditions.
• Kidney disease.
• Liver disease
• Seizures.
• Pregnancy (though it has not been proved that this can harm a baby inside the womb).

One must also not have them when they are lactating and breastfeeding a newborn because this medicine can pass through breast milk and can cause drowsiness in an infant. It is also not recommended to one who is below 16 years of age.

One needs to take this medicine just exactly it has been prescribed to them. One needs to follow all the directions given in the prescription label and read all the instructions before taking them. One can have them thrice a day and follow what the doctors have prescribed them. This medicine has to be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Sometimes one can get allergic reactions after taking this medicine like difficulty in breathing, hives, swelling of faces and many more. In those cases, one must seek medical attention. One must call the doctor if the serotonin level of their body goes high and they have fever, hallucination, sweating and fast heart rate after having soma muscle relaxer.

The other common and general side effects are drowsiness, dizziness, and headache. If one takes soma with other drugs then it can increase sleepiness in one and so one must not take sleeping pills with this medicine.

These are the things to be kept in mind when they are using this muscle relaxer to reduce their pain.
