After breaking my L5 lumbar over 30 years ago, Soma compound was among the drugs I was perscribed. I was warned there was a danger of further injuring myself since the Soma desensitized the spinal cord so pain was less obvious. The "compound" part was the addition of codiene to the caprisodol muscle relaxant.
It was a tremendous help in my recovery, and I never had the slightest problem with addiction, as Argent said, or reinjuring myself either.
I'm with you Argent, this is wonderful stuff when used with discretion, and not abused. I did notice the room tended to move around a bit the first few times until I got used to it. Not any big problem. It helps.
