Skeletal muscle relaxant; structurally and pharmacologically related to meprobamate.

Uses for Carisoprodol Muscular Conditions

Short-term (i.e., up to 2–3 weeks) relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions. Indicated for short-term use only; prolonged use not adequately studied and may increase risk of abuse, dependence, and tolerance.

If pharmacologic therapy is required for acute low back pain (usually a benign and self-limiting condition ), experts state that an NSAIA or skeletal muscle relaxant may be considered. Skeletal muscle relaxants may provide small improvements in pain relief, but are associated with a high incidence of adverse effects (e.g., CNS effects). Use with caution after weighing risks against benefits.

Various skeletal muscle relaxants appear to have comparable efficacy for low back pain relief.

Carisoprodol is ineffective for treatment of skeletal muscle hyperactivity secondary to chronic neurologic disorders (e.g., cerebral palsy) and other dyskinesias.
