Soma (Carisoprodol)Carisoprodol

Carisoprodol is a skeletal muscle relaxant (centrally acting). It produces the effects that are associated with barbiturate receptor glands.

It is somewhat solvent in water and openly dissolvable in acetone, chloroform and ethanol. The drug’s solvency is practically autonomous of pH. Carisoprodol is manufactured and marketed in the United States by Meda Pharmaceuticals and has the brand name Soma. In the United Kingdom and a number of other nations, Carisoprodol is markted under the brand names Carisoma and Sanoma. The drug can be found all on its lonesome or blended with aspirin and in a single preparation with caffeine and codeine in addition. Although Carisoprodol has momentous pharmacological activity, its advantage in therapy is expected because of the meprobamate metabolite since meprobamate remains in the framework significantly more and achieves a higher peak plasma concentration than the parent drug a few hours after administration. This is further proof of Carisoprodol’s ability to maintain relevant advantages when administered three to four times each day regardless of its tiny half-life of just two hours.

meda pharmaThe standard measurement of 350 mg will probably not induce any identifiable reactions other than drowsiness, and mellow to major euphoria or dysphoria. The euphoria is usually fleeting. The medication is very much tolerated and without adverse effects in the vast majority of patients for whom it is indicated. In a few patients, then again, and/or early in therapy, Carisoprodol can have the full range of sedative reactions and can impair the patient’s ability to operate a firearm, engine vehicles, and other machinery of various sorts, especially when taken with medications containing alcohol, in which case an alternative medication would be considered. The power of the reactions of carisoprodol has a tendency to decrease as therapy proceeds, as is the case with many different drugs.
