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. ...Read more

Can't afford the prescription meds that my dr. Gave me. What meds can I take like Soma (carisoprodol) for my back?
Meds: If you don't have insurance, try finding a prescription discount card online. This may be of some help. Also target or walmart has a $4 generic list of medications. There is a muscle relaxant called cyclobenzaprine that may be an option. Ask your prescriber if that med would be an option and ok with your other meds. You can verify if that would be ok with a pharmacist also. ...Read more
Switching from Soma (carisoprodol) muscle relaxer to what? Haven't found any, so far, that works like it in my past. What's the closest alternative (s)?
Hard to say: Presently there is no pharmacogenetic testing that will tell doctors which medication will work for you and which won't. .. so, unfortunately, there is a trial and error that goes on. You should review with your doctor alternative, those include baclofen, cyclobenzaprine, tizanidine, benzodiazepines, metaxalone, ophenadrine, methocarbamol. Though, you may not be a good candidate for some. ...Read more
Depends: On whether they test for it. In some areas where abuse of carisoprodol is common (and it is one of the drugs that are "pushed" in pill mills (together with alprazolam/xanax) along with opioids. 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
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
