Is the same "Somalgesic" as "Bencoprim"



Dear Luca,

Somalgesic is a muscle relaxant medication.

Its generic name is Carisoprodol.

Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxer that works by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain.

This medication may be habit-forming.

As of November 2007 Carisoprodol (Somadril, Somadril comp.) has been taken off the market in Sweden due to problems with dependence, abuse and side effects.

As of March 2009, carisoprodol is considered to be a schedule CIV (Schedule IV Controlled Substance) by the states of Florida, Arizona, Idaho, Minnesota, Texas, Kentucky and Washington State.

Bencoprim has a generic name of Cyclobenzaprine.

Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant. It works by blocking nerve impulses (or pain sensations) that are sent to your brain.

Cyclobenzaprine is typically prescribed to relieve pain and muscle spasms.

Common side effects include drowsiness, depression, headaches, severe dizziness, and blurred vision.
