Soma works by blocking the pain sensations sent between the nerves and the brain. Doctors typically use the drug in conjunction with rest and physical therapies designed to help injuries heal. Soma can be habit-forming, so patients should not share Soma with others. Withdrawal symptoms may arise when stopping the medication suddenly or after prolonged use. You can buy soma here. Keep track of how much you take and talk to your doctor if you become dependent. Your care provider will help you wean off the medication gradually.
Soma can cause side effects that may impair your reactions. Individuals should not operate a vehicle or heavy machinery or do anything that requires attentiveness until the full effects of the medication are known. Drinking can increase the drowsiness and dizziness already caused by the drug, so you should not drink alcohol while taking Soma.
Your doctor needs a complete medical history to avoid possible adverse interactions and side effects. Always keep a list of current and past medications handy so that medical professionals may check for negative interactions. Tell your doctor if you have a history of allergies to medications or muscle relaxers, alcohol or drug abuse, liver disease, acute intermittent porphyria, kidney disease or seizures. Your doctor may adjust the dosage or take other precautions when these conditions are present.
Soma should only be used in pregnancy when the potential benefit outweighs the risk, and if there is not an effective lower Category drug because there is animal evidence of teratogenicity (causing birth defects). Soma passes to the infant in breast milk so the decision to breastfeed an infant while taking this drug should be very carefully considered with your doctor.
