I didn't know I was pregnant and took Soma (carisoprodol) excessively. What are the risk my baby will be affected or deformed? I'm really worried!

See yourgynecologist. Soma (carisoprodol) has not been studied in humans during pregnancy. Some animal studies show that soma crosses the placenta and causes adverse effects on fetal growth and after birth survival . Soma is classified as pregnancy category c, thus should be used only when benefits outweigh its risks. Talk with your doctor about your concerns. Take care.
