Or the difference between soma and flexeril?
4 Nov 2010
Soma (carisoprodol) is a prescription muscle relaxant. It is meant to be used temporarily (up to two or three weeks) to treat muscle spasms due to injury or other muscle problems. Even though Soma is not a controlled substance, it has the potential to be abused.-
Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride) is a prescription medication used to treat muscle spasms. As a muscle relaxant, Flexeril can help relieve pain, tenderness, and stiffness due to muscle spasms. This medication is intended to be used for only two or three weeks at a time. This should be enough time to allow any muscle injury or damage to heal.
A muscle spasm is an uncontrollable contraction of a muscle. Muscle spasms can cause pain, tenderness, and stiffness. Sometimes muscles spasms in the neck can cause headaches. Muscle spasms are a frequent cause of back pain.
