    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Is that a muscle relaxant? I haven't heard of that before.
    kadiki replied to glad2bhere65's response:
    Yes it is. My GP wanted to get me off Soma. It worked great. It helps with muscle pain and at night a stronger dose will help you sleep better and make it more comfortable to sleep. It even hurts to sleep! I take the generic form but I can't ever remember the name.

    Yes I take it, the key is to understand what dose works for you, I take 14 mg a day I cut the pill in half and take 2 mg in the morning 2 mg in the afternoon and sometimes I need one around 5ish and then I take 10 mg at bedtime, it helps me in falling asleep and getting slep granted I still only sleep for about 5 hrs but that is more than most and I feel more rested.

    I used to be on it, but it did nothing for me, but everyone is different in how they react to medication.
