I use 50mg of adderall a day and after a month started having weird mild pain in the knees. It also seemed to cause my upper back and neck muscles to twitch. My hands are now easily agitated now at work when typing and I never had an issue before taking this drug. I’m just wondering if anyone has had similar odd muscle problems?
50 mg just seems like a large dose to me. i would take a drug holiday and cut back.

Yesterday, I had six back-to-back lacrosse games with only a ten minute break. My abdominal muscles hurt, the area above my butt hurts (sorry I had to say that) and my hamstrings hurt. I am aware that it’s normal to have pain after working out and things like that, but how do I lessen the pain WITHOUT medication?
The easiest drug free treatment is take a warm (not hot but you may need to add some to keep the water warm)) bathe and just soak since so many areas are involved. After you relax a bit in the tub then you need to get out a couple of ice packs. If you don’t have these then you can make one by putting ice in a ziplock bag placed into another ziplock bag to prevent leakage. Get out the remote and lay back on the couch and find something to watch on tv. Put the ice bag on your tummy. You should have a pillow under your knees to support them and you can place ice to your hamstrings on this. Rest, ice and elevation are the key ingredients to getting better faster. Even though you don’t want medication if you do decide to take some it should be Motrin (unless allergic or other reactions) since Motrin has antiinflammatory effect that other pain meds don’t. Good luck!

Anyway, I recently pulled a muscle in my leg and was given some somas (carisoprodol) by a friend of mine. I honestly NEVER even thought about the possibility of a drug test popping up (dumb, I know) and I didn’t take the medication to get high either so save those comments. However, the next day when I reported, you guessed it, I was tested. I don’t know how long it takes them to get the results…but does soma show on probation screens? I’m freaking out here. And please no “well you should have thought of that blah blah blah” stuff, because trust me, I know. Also, if you can find any actual links for any info add them…it would be really helpful.
Make up a clever story about how it got in your system. Your officer will never suspect that you are trying to hide something.
Here’s an idea….there was a crushed pill and you confused it with parmesan cheese and ate it on your spaghetti.

How do I ask my doctor to increase my pain medication, I been on the same dose for 8 years it is not providing relief from my chronic lower back pain and I think I need a dose adjustment.I currently take lortab 5mg,500 twice a day, this is not bringing relief, like how it use too. I am afraid the dr will think I am just drug seeking, I do have a chronic lower back pain and calf muscle pain. I take 3 muscle relaxers same dose for 8 years, 3 carisoprodol 300 mg 3 times a day . I tryed taking take lortab 5mg,500 3 times a day and this really did provide relief from the serve pain
, but 2 are just not doing what they did 8 years ago. Is it wrong to ask for a dose adjustment ?
Just like with so many others:
Narcotics and muscle relaxers are not good long term solutions to chronic pain. That is what you should talk to your provider about!! He/She is doing you a disservice by providing narcotics and muscle relaxers for a long period of time without addressing the underlying cause of your problem.

So I go to my mailbox today and find a smallish white bubble pack envelope addressed to my 17 year old son. It has an airmail stamp on it and the return address is from a Manoj S. Patel in Khar, Mumbai. I opened is because it looked suspicious. The only thing inside were 10 bubble packs of a drug called Carisoprodol, street name Soma. No paperwork at all. This is a controlled substance. I looked up the name Manoj S. Patel and found him to have a clinic in Mumbai, allegedly. How did he get these sent to him? Anyone have any ideas what might be going on before I confront him?
I did confront him. He denies it. I guess I am just blown away that this just showed up at my door!
confront him, he’s 17, he is not an adult as yet and shouldn’t be treated as one. How in the world is he able to order stuff like that online? you need to confront him and be straight forward with him.
He’s a teenager…of course he would deny it….check his computer….check to see the credit card it was ordered off of….i.p. addresses….computer history…come on drugs are serious and to be sent to him like that?

Ok, lets say im 24 and i need to take 2 carisoprodol tablets for it to work correctly
if i was 14, would i need to take 1 tablet
and if i was 48 would i need to take 4 tablets
With a calculation such as this one, you’re gonna overdose fast. Be careful. My niece overdosed on prescription drugs and died in her sleep. She was 30.

My dentist gave me Carisoprodol (a muscle relaxer) for my tight jaw muscles, and my doctor gave me Xanax for my anxiety. Can I take these together or will it not be good if I do?
It would have moderate interactions at most.
Long list here but in alphabetical order.
Type in carisoprodol and it will list all the drugs that it has interactions with.

if i’m not mistaken soma causes drowsiness, and yes it could get a driver charged with dui, put soma in your yahoo search bar you’ll get a lot of info there.

My grandma was having really bad back spasms a couple of nights ago, but didn’t want to go to the ER, so she took one of my grandfather’s perscribed Somas
(generic name Carisoprodol ) The next day at work they had a random drug screening. Now she’s worried that it’s going to show up on her test and since she doesn’t have a prescription for it she’ll get in trouble. Does anyone know if one pill of a 300mg Soma would show up on a drug test?
Unless soma is an opiate, then i doubt it will.
drug tests like these are only used for illicit drugs.
and other opiates.
and NO, soma is not an opiate. it is a mild muscle relaxant.
she has nothing to worry about.
if for some reason anything was to show up, she can argue it and they will mandate that she have another test taken within a certain period of time. most likely with her doctor.
but tell her not to worry, it looks like nothing serious.
