Carisoprodol (Soma®) is a prescription medication approved to temporarily treat muscle spasms caused by an injury or other muscle problems. Although it is not exactly clear how it works, it is known that the liver metabolizes this drug into meprobamate (a barbiturate with anti-anxiety and sedative properties). Some of the common side effects seen with this drug include headaches, drowsiness, and dizziness. Prior to taking carisoprodol, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
