    The dr just switched me a few weeks ago, it makes me sleepy a lot faster but it seems to be working better. I can only take it at night unless I'm in so much pain I have to stay home and take it but their is no way I can drive on it

    I was having mucle spasms in my lower back, at 1st my Dr. put me on Diazapam (valium) that helped the muscle spasms, but left me feeling loopy. Carisoprodol, didn't make me sleepy or loopy feeling. Prefer that much more over taking Valium.

    I have used this medication long term to treat muscle spasm from MS and find it very effective. I have tried other muscle relaxants with little or no relief. Taken for 20 years and now taking myself off of it. that hard to do so long as you step down your dose gradually.
