Soma Treatment, Soma Addiction Treatment Soma (generic name Carisoprodol) is a prescription muscle relaxant that is used to treat musculoskeletal pain and muscle spasms. It is generally used in conjunction with physical therapy to treat injuries and other painful musculoskeletal conditions. When taken in dosages exceeding those recommended by physicians, Soma usually causes drowsiness, giddiness, and relaxation; because of its sedative effects and potential for abuse, Soma is a Schedule IV drug in the United States and has been pulled off the market throughout parts of the EU and Scandinavia.

Soma acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain. People who have sustained physical injury or trauma may have initially been prescribed Soma and then become dependent on its pain-killing effects even after the injury has healed. Soma is often combined with other drugs or alcohol to enhance the effect. Because it can be habit-forming, it should only be used as prescribed and never transferred to another person.

Like other prescription drugs, the abuse of Soma is associated with tolerance, dependence and addiction. The signs and symptoms have no fundamental difference from those that can be found accompanying the abuse of other prescription medications with tranquilizer or sedative effects such as Valium® or Xanax® and may also include the following:

• Disobeying the prescription orders as written by the doctor. This might mean taking pills for reasons not prescribed (for sleep, for relaxation, to get high etc) or taking them more frequently than the prescription dictates, causing them to run out sooner than expected. In these events, the patient should consult his prescribing doctor

• Aggressive drug-seeking behavior like doctor-shopping, going from one doctor to another complaining of whatever malady one thinks will earn them Soma from a physician.

• Frequent periods of illness and irritability. Soma dependence and withdrawal can make a person ill for a day or two until they can find more, which restores them to seeming normalcy until they run out again.

Soma is typically abused and ingested orally. Many abusers take it in combination with other drugs to enhance the effects of those drugs. Alcohol, codeine, diazepam, heroin, hydrocodone (especially Vicodin®), meprobamate, and propoxyphene commonly are abused in combination with Soma. Abusers who combine Soma with Vicodin claim that this combination produces effects similar to those of heroin.

Individuals of all ages abuse Soma. Data reported in the recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicate that 2,276,000 U.S. residents aged 12 and older used Soma non-medically at least once in their lifetime. Law enforcement officers indicate that large concentrations of youths living in Arizona and California often obtain carisoprodol at pharmacies in Mexico. Carisoprodol is sold in Mexico under the brand name Somacid. Prescriptions for Soma and Somacid can be purchased from some doctors and pharmacists in Mexico.

Soma is generally safe when prescribed by a physician and used as directed. However, individuals who abuse Soma often develop psychological addictions to the drug. Common side effects of Soma abuse include:

• blurred vision
• dizziness
• drowsiness
• loss of coordination
• chills
• depression
• racing heartbeat
• tightness in chest
• vomiting
• unusual weakness

Signs that an overdose has occurred include difficulty in breathing, shock, and coma. A Soma overdose may result in death.

Withdrawal symptoms from Soma addiction generally abate within a few days of onset, but they can be severe including headache, nausea, sleeplessness, stomach pain and even seizures, because of the severity of these symptoms, almost all individuals dependent on Soma return to its use or turn to other prescription narcotics for relief. If you think you might be dependent on Soma, talk to your doctor before abruptly ceasing the medication in order to avoid potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

The post-acute withdrawal symptoms of Soma include craving the drug, heightened sensitivity to stress, memory difficulties, lack of emotion, the inability to think clearly and problems with physical co-ordination. These can withdrawal symptoms last for weeks or months after cessation of Soma use. It is advised that a Soma addict remain under the care of a specialized program until these post-acute symptoms have completely passed, as relapse is likely to occur otherwise.
