Austin, Texas (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- Soma is a prescription muscle relaxant that is typically used to treat musculoskeletal pain and muscle spasms. It is generally used in conjunction with physical therapy to treat injuries and other painful musculoskeletal conditions.
Like other prescription drugs, the abuse of Soma is associated with tolerance, dependence and addiction. The signs and symptoms have no fundamental difference from those that can be found accompanying the abuse of other prescription medications with tranquilizer or sedative effects such as ValiumÂ® or XanaxÂ® and may also include the following:
â¢ Disobeying the prescription orders as written by the doctor. This might mean taking pills for reasons not prescribed (for sleep, for relaxation, to get high etc) or taking them more frequently than the prescription dictates, causing them to run out sooner than expected. In these events, the patient should consult his prescribing doctor
â¢ Aggressive drug-seeking behavior like doctor-shopping, going from one doctor to another complaining of whatever malady one thinks will earn them Soma from a physician.
â¢ Frequent periods of illness and irritability. Soma dependence and withdrawal can make a person ill for a day or two until they can find more, which restores them to seeming normalcy until they run out again. Soma addiction can also be symptomatic of underlying issues that need to be addressed on an individual basis, such as, dual diagnoses like depression and anxiety, and at SouthCoast Recoveryâs state-of-the-art facilities, the finest clinical and medical physicians in California work together with skilled practitioners in advanced Eastern holistic therapies, while utilizing the most cutting edge addiction detox methods such as NTR, to help ease clients through detox and provide the most comprehensive physical, emotional and spiritual renewal of each person.
