SOMA allergic reaction

Hello All,
Has anyone here ever used SOMA. I think I had an allergic reaction to this drug. I took the first one last night and this morning around 8am I noticed a strange redness spread over my upper chest and breast. I haven't been able to get in touch with my doctor yet.......does this sound like an allergic reaction......ElegantGI

Re: SOMA allergic reaction

Thanks for the response,
I was actually having a allergic reaction. The doc told me not to use it anymore and gave me Benadryl. The rash has pretty much cleared up now....ElegantGI

Re: SOMA allergic reaction

I've taken a lot of SOMA over the year without any side effects but a wonderfully pleasant drowsiness and some welcome relief from back spasm.

It sounds like you are having a SLIGHT reaction to it (taking anything else?...niacin?...strawberries?)

A SERIOUS anaphylactic reaction (hives, lip-swelling- throat closing angioedema, shock or coma) usually comes on fast.

I'd mention it to your doctor...maybe a couple aspirin and some benadryl or prednisone (if you have any lying around your medicine chest) til you get him on the phone.

I wouldn't worry though. A SERIOUS reaction would have hit you last night.

Personally, I doubt the SOMA (carisoprodyl) has anything to do with the rash. (I LIKE the drug!)
