Parafon chlorzoxazone is indicated as an adjunct to rest, physical therapy, and other measures for the relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions. The mode of action of this drug has not been clearly identified, but may be related to its sedative properties. Chlorzoxazone does not directly relax tense skeletal muscles in man.
Soma is indicated for the relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions in adults.
Soma should only be used for short periods (up to two or three weeks) because adequate evidence of effectiveness for more prolonged use has not been established and because acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions are generally of short duration.
Both meds are almost the same, Soma is usually prescribed for a short period of time.
For more details, please talk to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the meds, take care.
