Soma Carisoprodol, a muscle relaxant, blocks the brain’s ability to receive pain signals from the nerves. Together with rest and physical therapy, Soma Carisoprodol is used to treat skeletal muscle issues such as discomfort or injury. Carisoprodol should only be used for brief intervals (up to two or three weeks), as there is little evidence to support its continued usage, and most skeletal muscle injuries heal quickly. Carisoprodol is considered a controlled substance in the US.
