Discussions that mention carisoprodol

Spinal Cord Disorders board

Hi, Keith. Sorry to hear about your neck pain. I know how frustrating and tiring it is to keep running back and forth to doctors but in my own opinion, anything that helps to avoid surgery is a good thing and worth a try. As far as meds go, to be honest, nothing I tried really stopped my neck pain (see profile), but, believe it or not, simple prescription ibuprofen took the edge off and helped me sleep at night(however, it was a megadose). You could also try Carisoprodol or Methocarbonal - both muscle relaxers.

If you decide to try the injections, let us know how they worked for you. Good luck and feel better.
