Are there any side effects of Soma?

Soma is a very well-known medication and it falls into a group of muscle relaxants. It is used in the treatment of different muscle injuries to stop the pain that you feel and to help you recover faster. However, just like any other drug, Soma has it side effects as well. These are not too serious, but you should be familiar with what just might occur when using Soma and how you should react.

Firstly, there are the most common side effects which are also the least serious. These are headache, dizziness, drowsiness, a little increased heart rate, flushing of your face and low blood pressure. As you can see, these are not severe at all and they do not require medical help. In case you experience any of them, you should remain calm and take a lot of water.

Next come some allergic reactions, which are not very likely to occur. However, if they do, you should seek some medical help. These allergic reactions may include symptoms such as itching, rash, swelling of your face, lips, tongue or throat, heavy breathing or severe dizziness. If you happen to experience any of these, do not panic and get some medical help.

Now we come to a very rare reaction that might occur. This can be a serious reaction, so medical help will be needed. The reaction occurs within the first minutes or hours after you have taken your first dosage and it involves symptoms such as inability to move your legs or arms, extreme weakness, pain in your joints, shaky movements, some changes in vision, changes in mood such as restlessness, agitation or confusion and wide pupils. In case any of these occur, you should immediately seek some medical help.

Of course, regardless of whether the side effects that you experience require medical help or not, you should inform your doctor anyway. It might be necessary that your dosage be lowered. However, do not adjust the dosage on your own for there are many different factors based on which your doctor will determine your dosage. Also, never take double or more than your doctor prescribed to you because you will only increase the risk of the side effects. So, follow closely your doctor’s instructions and there will be no unpleasant consequences.

All in all, the side effects of Soma exist just as they do with any other drug. However, they occur in a really small number of people and those that occur most commonly are also those that are least serious. However, there some reactions which are very rare but also which require some swift medical help and you should be familiar with their symptoms. In case you experience any of the abovementioned side effects, inform your doctor and they will probably slightly lower you original dosage. Of course, you should never do it on your own and you should never take more than prescribed. Follow the instructions you will only experience the benefits of Soma.
