Is Soma Good For A Toothache
Cautious with soma (carisoprodol): Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant.

Varies: Really, based on size and weight, but usual dose is 350 mg every 8 hrs. More likely than not, some tolerance will occur if slow increase of dose, but likely significant side effects if sudden doubling of dosage.
