I've been in Sims for about a year now since flexeril no longer worked. I have to say Soma is my daily savior. Even my percocets don't kill as much pain as Soma....our I should daddy allow me full usage of my body like I'm young again. I have DDD & advanced & degenerative of the spine. I'm only 38, but w/o my meds I can barely move & walk like a 60 year old. I highly recommend both meds for anyone with diseases like mine.
My mother just passed away last month due to a overdose on soma. Do the world a favour and take them off the market. They took my best friend away from me.I hate somas I HATE SOMAS. RIP MOMMA 10·24·62-10·21·14
AskDocWeb: We are sorry for your loss Yagirl and offer our heartfelt condolences.
Sometimes it works really good wi With muscle spasms & other times when the spasms are severe, I need to double up to get some relief. I agree if you start this roller coaster ride it's very bad getting off them.
Falling down and slurred speech
I took soma 2 pills.. I went for a walk to thr store, I bought a coffee and headed home (store is very close). Halfway home I fell my coffee went everywhere, I couldn't get on my feet.. I kept falling back down... it was not pleasant.. 2 pills...people came outside and were asking if I need help, only thing I can think to say and I did was that "im wasted drunk, I will be ok"... embarrassing.. off of 2 of them... never touched them again... I made it home and fell asleep...it was like I was drunk but only a body drunk... my speech was slurred, but my Lord it was not fun... I just couldn't believe I couldn't stand up... it was a disaster... wouldn't be surprised to see it on youtube....oh my... funnny right there
AskDocWeb: Hopefully you reported that to your doctor. That type of information needs to be recorded in your medical record.
Soma has been a lifesaver for me. Bit smooths out the knots in my neck & shoulders so that I sleep comfortably! It works fast (about 20 minutes), so you have to take soon before bedtime.
Soma is not for anxiety!
Soma is meant to be taken with pain medication, not for anxiety and Definitely not more than 3x a day, you all have really stupid Dr.s or drug abusers
If you take more than prescribed
I think the problem with this medicine is when people take 20-30 a day, those of us who follow how we are being prescribed it and do not take extra should not be punished by having it taken away. If u take more than u are prescribed, u have a problem and that is not the drugs problem it's yours so get help please!!
My husband took up to 80 Somas a day and drinking 18-24 Beers a day for close to two years, he had some kind of mental breakdown and was hospitalized, he was then under the care of a doctor. He quit the doctor because the medication made it so he couldn't drink beer. His mental state has gotten who worse. He is irrational and very aggressive. Can that amount of Somas cause brain damage???
AskDocWeb: The overdose symptoms of soma may include excessive sedation, severe ataxia (inability to coordinate voluntary muscle movements), amnesia, confusion, agitation, ringing in ears, seizures, intoxication and inappropriate (potentially violent) behavior. Severe overdoses may present with respiratory depression, coma, and death. To date we have seen nothing to connect it with brain damage.
my daughter took 10 to 12 soma 2days ago she still cannot move her legs and her arm movement is erratic. She has no grip. She weighs about 115 pounds. Will she recover the use of her limbs?
AskDocWeb: In order to get an answer to that question she needs a medical examination by a healthcare provider. There may also be psychological issues involved.
Reply to itching
To the person take took soma and scratched the arm till it was raw.... The only thing I can think of is you took a Soma Compound that has codeine in it..... Codeine makes some people feel itchy.... It's the codeine!!!! If ur Soma pill was 2 colors than that's ur answer!
If you wonder
I have had a Soma prescription for years due to chronic back spasms and shoulder issues. I've had surgery and much PT. The Soma seemed to help. I took one 350 mg pill when the spasms got bad, usually in late afternoon. I never took more than that, and never more than once a day. Time went by and one day I realized I just took it automatically, every day, even when my back was not too bad. It was like my afternoon relaxation cocktail. That's when I flushed them down the toilet. i would rather have the pain than have some chemical be my boss. If you wonder if you have a Soma problem, YOU DO.
Americans are idiots. This is over the counter and seldom abused in the real world. It helps when needed. Most of the addicted clowns get addicted by a quack working on commissions and charging insurance(oftyen evul gooberment or other"socialist" policies----military) for the recurring(forever) 5 minute visits to "allow" more to be bought. Then to beat all they think they're 'free". What a joke. Happy credit card daze!
I have a friend who has just started taking soma 350 tid he is having much worse pain now is it possible to have rebound pain from soma
AskDocWeb: Yes, rebound pain is possible when coming off Soma.
Danger of death?
My friend took close to ten of these a two nights ago and is getting side effects still, is he still in danger of death?
AskDocWeb: If he is still getting side effects then there is still a danger that needs to be discussed with his doctor.
