 5  Muscle Spasms Spinal Cord Stenosis I don't know how I could have survived the past ten years without this wonder drug. I have never abused it and it's the only thing that has given me any sort of quality of life. For those that are prone to drug abuse of any kind I can see how it could be dangerous, but for those of us who actually suffer from life long debilitating pain from muscle spasms it's a god send.I've recently had two level acdf surgery and I've had to bump up the dosage a bit, but if all goes well I should be able to go back to my normal dosage.

 5  Neck and shoulder spasms, back pain I have been taking Soma, off and on, for over 10 years and occassional drowsiness is the only side effect I've even experienced...but even that is dependent upon other circumstances, such as time of day and whether I take it with food or alone. SOMA is one of the most effective muscle-relaxant drugs I have ever taken. Chemically, I know that the drug does not really act directly on muscles, but instead acts on the brain pathways. Regardless of the actual process, the effect is still to relieve muscle tension and the pain that accompanies muscle spasm. It is a drug that could be addictive if you overdose on it and like the effect of being in a drunken stupor, which is an awful feeling top begin with. Howeever, when taken properly Soma is not addictive at all, IMHO, but then again, I have never been addictive to anything, either medicinal or non-medicinal. Considering that I have been taking Soma for over 10 years, I can skip taking Soma for extended periods w/o any withdrawl symptoms at all. It is a wonderful medication, and when combined with analgesics, the effect is synergistic and complimentary. M 58 10 years
