|Typical Brand Names:
Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxant that is thought to act on the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). It is used to treat acute musculo-skeletal disorders assocaited with painful muscle spasm, where sedation is acceptable.
The mechanism of action of this medicine is unclear, but it is thought to decrease the impulses from the brain and spinal cord to the muscles. (It has no direct action on the muscle itself). This causes the muscles to relax and hence decreases the spasm.
