SOMA (Carisoprodol) tablets are 250 mg and 350 mg round white tablets. Soma (Carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant that prevents pain between the nerves and the brain. Soma is used in combination with rest and physiotherapy to treat skeletal muscle disorders such as pain or injury. The mediation can only be used for a short period of time (up to two to three weeks) as there is no evidence that it can be used for a long period of time and most skeletal muscle injuries usually last only for a short time.
