Hello,

Soma is a muscle relaxant meant to be used short trem maximum 3 weeks, it used for muscle spasms due to injury or other muscle problems.- Taking it for longer periods of time could increase the risk of dependence and possibly abuse.

All the best and take care.-

Not what I wanted to know. The Soma didn't help Is there another kind of muscle med she can ask about. She doesn't take anything unless absolutely necessary
