    Default SOMA ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION OR DIFFICULTY URINATING

    ARE THERE ANY MEN OUT THERE THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED IMPOTENCE OR DIFFICULTY OBTAINING OR MAINTAINING AN ERECTION WHILE TAKING SOMA? ALSO HAVE ANY MEN EXPERIENCED DECREASED URINATION, DIFFICULTY STARTING OR MAINTAINING URINARY FLOW OR INCOMPLETE EMPTYING OF THE BLADDER? HELP!!! I CAN NOT FIND THIS LISTED AS A SIDE EFFECT OF SOMA ANYWHERE BUT THESE ARE PROBLEMS THAT MY HUSBAND IS HAVING. HE HAS HAD VERY BAD REACTIONS TO ALL KINDS OF DRUGS IN THE PAST, AND AM HOPING THIS IS A DRUG SIDE EFFECT AND NOT NERVE DAMAGE FROM BACK SURGERY IN MARCH.
    THANK YOU.

    Erectile Dysfunction and male impotency are very common disorders which most men face in there life at some stage for one reason or the other. But some times it’s very difficult to differentiate between these. ED is the inability to maintain erection and urination problems are there to many men. You can have some detailed information about ED on http://www.levitrabliss.com Even I got to know from this link that this pill not only helps in curing ED disorders, but it also helps in getting over impotence. So you better consult an urologist as he/she can let you know the exact reason behind your problem and can suggest the appropriate medication.
    Hope this helps mate. Best luck.

    Soma is the culprite, it's a very common side effect, so common that it is expected.

    Well, I wasn't too sure it was going to do anything, but the doctor prescribed it anyway, we tried it and it was wonderful. Levitra has completely changed my life. What more can I say?

    I can say one thing, it's kind of sad that you have to take another drug to counter its effects, sometimes people have multiple conditions brought on from a single drug such as Soma and end up having to take 3 or more drugs, that's all the more money going into the drug companies pockets, and a nice little drug cocktail for you. That's why I say, if you can, don't take any drugs.

    That is very dangerous advice and advice I warn people of often. As one who works with patients on a daily basis I encounter various types of patients and differing approaches from supporting physicians. No one patient nor one physician the same in approach or opinion. Are there patients that over medication when another approach may do? Certainly. Are there physicians that often use medications before lifestyle changes, at times? Sure. But the absolute worst advice and most deadly advice is for an uneducated individual publishing the thought to possibly millions of internet readers that medications are bad and your works "don't take any drugs".

    I've seen patients die from this thought process when a simple medication could have saved their life. I see a lack of patient compliance constantly where if a medication is written for twice a day usage is it used once a day, etc. Patients are not nearly as educated on the mechanism and action of pharmaceuticals. I do not know why so many in America subscribe and spread the deadly advice of "drugs are bad, don't take them" without the
    least bit of clinical knowledge. The only people that should be making these decisions are physicians. We should be grateful for advances in medicine... people 10, 20, 50 years ago might literally die for the chance of availability of these medications.

    If a patient is concerned about a medication, its combination, strength, or dosage, they need to consult with their physician before ceasing or decreasing its usage. If there are side effects; share these with your physician. If you do not understand why it was prescribed, ask! Do not listen to your neighbor, friend, co-worker, or internet blogger... your life might depend on it!

    As an add on to my last post above...

    With regards to your "big drug company profit" comment... Soma (carisoprodol) went generic years ago and can be purchased for less than $4... even questionably legitimate online pharmacies sell this medication for as low as 10 cents per tablet. Lets get real...
