Feels like I'm not emptying bladder. A week ago I had what I thought was a UTI but drank cranberry juice and was gone the next day. Can it be UTI rela (carisoprodol)?

Feels like I'm not emptying bladder. A week ago I had what I thought was a UTI but drank cranberry juice and was gone the next day. Can it be UTI rela (carisoprodol)?

Maybe.: May be related to the UTI, but not emptying bladder may be more complicated than just a UTI. You should probably see your doc to make sure the bladder is emptying and get to the bottom of your problem - maybe this was not a UTI to begin with. Checking bladder volumes is a very simple and non invasive test. ...Read more

Chest pain was on the right side and lasted for a week then went away  when I took Pepcid for 10 days as doctor prescribed on the last day pain came back on left side age 20 after I finished lifting my game system and monitor to car what is this pain rela

Chest pain, muscular: There are a few things that could be the cause although if it was clearly associated with the lifting then a pulled muscle is a good possibility. If you are having persistent chest pain with any exertion though, or pressure, nausea, tightness or shortness of breath it could be something else. Either way I'd just have urgent care take a quick look and maybe prescribe some physical therapy. ...Read more

Orthostatic: Hypotension would explain your symptoms. Increasing fluids significantly & liberalizing salt intake (provided you don't have htn) would be first steps. I'm assuming that you are not taking BP medication. If symptoms don't improve see your physician. ...Read more

Had an ablation on Sept 18. I  do for my period now. But instead I got the stomach flu for over 36 hours. Nobody around me is sick. Could it be rela (carisoprodol)?

See below: The only tie-in would be if you caught it from one of the hospital personnel. On the other hand, stomach flu should subside in less than a week. If it doesn't you should call your physician. While a bacterial infection is a theoretical complication of an ablation, it is highly unlikely ...Read more

Is the medication Soma (carisoprodol) good for back aches?

Is the medication Soma (carisoprodol) good for back aches?

Cautious with soma (carisoprodol): Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant. I tend to be very cautious with Soma (carisoprodol) and have never prescribed it for back aches for two reasons 1) there are much better treatment modalities out there 2) it has substantial addiction and abuse potential. I might continue it if a patient's been on it for years and years from another doc, but will never use it as a first, second, or even third line medication. ...Read more

On routine 7 or 10 panel tests that look for opiates, benzos, cocaine, amphetamine, marijuana, barbiturates, PCP etc) it is NOT tested for. It is, however, a highly abusable and dangerous drug. ...Read more

Can Soma (carisoprodol) show up in a 6 panel drug test?

Not likely: Soma (carisoprodol) is not specifically tested for. However, i wonder about the motivation of this question. Soma (carisoprodol) can be mis-used. Have a frank discussion with your doctor about it's proper use. Focus on getting help for your symptoms and not on obtaining a medication. You are in control of your health. Don't become dependent on a medication. ...Read more
