Soma Pill Information

Soma® (carisoprodol) is a prescription medication approved to treat muscle spasms caused by injuries or other muscle problems. Although most people tolerate this medication well, these pills are not suitable for everyone. Therefore, Soma's prescribing information should be read before starting treatment with this drug.
For example, Soma can cause several side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, and headaches. Also, it is important that your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you may have or any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements) before he or she prescribes Soma.
Although it is not exactly clear how Soma works to treat muscle spasms, it is known that it mostly works in the brain stem and spinal cord (not directly on the muscles). Even though Soma is not classified as a controlled substance, it does have the potential for abuse and may not be the best choice for people with a history of drug or alcohol abuse.
The drug comes in pill (tablet) form. It is taken by mouth, usually three times a day and at bedtime.
