Why after years of taking Soma (carisoprodol) are doctors reluctant to prescibe it and its the thing that stops the spasmisms?
Soma (carisoprodol) Soma (carisoprodol) is one of the most frequently abused drugs with a very high potential for dependency and addiction. The longer you take it the more chance you have of becoming dependent and addicted. It can be dangerously sedating especially if you use other CNS suppressing drugs or alcohol. You also need to taper Soma (carisoprodol) slowly if taken for a long time. Its use is approved by the fda up to 2-3 weeks only.
Highly addictive. Plus it is a potent central nervous system depressant.
Tranquilizer. Soma (carisoprodol) is not really a muscle relaxer. It is a tranquilizer, and a highly addictive one at that.
