How many milligrams of Soma (carisoprodol) could cause an overdose?

How many milligrams of Soma (carisoprodol) could cause an overdose?

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. Would advise, that Soma (carisoprodol) metabolizes to miltown, a drug removed from market years ago, due to abuse potential and risk! Talk at length with your doctor regarding this product.
