Soma Side Effects
After medications are approved and are in use by the general public, healthcare providers may voluntarily report side effects. This information may point to possible side effects that were not seen in clinical trials. However, it is very difficult (or even impossible) to tell how frequently such side effects occur or if they are even actual side effects, since they are reported voluntarily (and since the "side effects" could be coincidental). These reported side effects are known as "postmarketing experience." Possible side effects of Soma reported in postmarketing experience include, but are not limited to:
- Low blood pressure (hypotension) upon standing or sitting up
- Facial flushing
- A spinning sensation (vertigo)
- Coordination problems
- Shakiness (tremor)
- Insomnia (see Soma and Insomnia)
- Throat or upper stomach pain.
It is possible that you may experience some or none of the Soma side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Soma or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a Soma side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
