Hi spoof,
Since Soma does affect the heart I would think that it would definetely cause problems in that department. Do you know someone that is abusing Soma's?
Or is it you? Let us know, so we can better help you.
Best wishes to you,

Hey Spoof,

That is about two and a half times the recommended amount of soma (carisoprodol) per day. It is habit forming and I have this for you to read:

Psychologic dependence and abuse of carisoprodol (often in combination with alcohol and other CNS depressants) have been reported.

Withdrawal symptoms after abrupt cessation of carisoprodol have been reported and may be due to dependency on the meprobamate metabolite. Such symptoms include abdominal pain, agitation, tremor, restlessness, anxiety, depression, insomnia, nausea, and sweating. Seizures have been reported rarely.

You are risking serious respiratory (breathing) and cardiac (heart) problems taking that much. You need to address this dependence immediately but as I have shown you, you can not just stop taking soma. You need to taper your dose down over time and you need to do so under a doctor's care.

Please seek medical attention for this situation. If you are unable to do so, please get back to us.
