  • CARISOPRODOL is indicated for the relief of discomfort associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions in adults. CARISOPRODOL should only be used for short periods (up to two or three weeks) because adequate evidence of effectiveness for more prolonged use has not been established and because acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions are generally of short duration.

  • Overdosage of CARISOPRODOL commonly produces CNS depression. Death, coma, respiratory depression, hypotension, seizures, delirium, hallucinations, dystonic reactions, nystagmus, blurred vision, mydriasis, euphoria, muscular incoordination, rigidity, and/or headache have been reported with CARISOPRODOL overdosage. Many of the CARISOPRODOL overdoses have occurred in the setting of multiple drug overdoses (including drugs of abuse, illegal drugs, and alcohol). The effects of an overdose of CARISOPRODOL and other CNS depressants (e.g., alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids, tricyclic antidepressants) can be additive even when one of the drugs has been taken in the recommended dosage. Fatal accidental and non-accidental overdoses of CARISOPRODOL have been reported alone or in combination with CNS depressants.
  • Treatment of Overdosage:
  • The following types of treatment have been used successfully with an overdose of meprobamate, a metabolite of CARISOPRODOL: activated charcoal (oral or via nasogastric tube), forced diuresis, peritoneal dialysis, and hemodialysis (carisoprodol is also dialyzable). Careful monitoring of urinary output is necessary and overhydration should be avoided. Observe for possible relapse due to incomplete gastric emptying and delayed absorption.

  • CARISOPRODOL Tablets are available as 350 mg round, white to off white, tablets. Carisoprodol is a white, crystalline powder, having a mild, characteristic odor and a bitter taste. It is slightly soluble in water; freely soluble in alcohol, in chloroform, and in acetone; and its solubility is practically independent of pH. Carisoprodol is present as a racemic mixture. Chemically, carisoprodol is N-isopropyl-2-methyl-2-propyl-1,3-propanediol dicarbamate and the molecular formula is Cn n n Hn n n Nn n n On n n , with a molecular weight of 260.33.

  • Other ingredients in the CARISOPRODOL drug product include Hydroxypropyl cellulose, Lactose Anhydrous, Microcrystalline cellulose, Magnesium stearate, Pregelatinised starch, Sodium lauryl sulfate and Sodium starch glycolate.
  • No data
  • Long term studies in animals have not been performed to evaluate the carcinogenic potential of carisoprodol.
  • CARISOPRODOL was not formally evaluated for genotoxicity. In published studies, carisoprodol was mutagenic in the n n n mouse lymphoma cell assay in the absence of metabolizing enzymes, but was not mutagenic in the presence of metabolizing enzymes. Carisoprodol was clastogenic in the n n n chromosomal aberration assay using Chinese hamster ovary cells with or without the presence of metabolizing enzymes. Other types of genotoxic tests resulted in negative findings. Carisoprodol was not mutagenic in the Ames reverse mutation assay using n n n strains with or without metabolizing enzymes, and was not clastogenic in an n n n mouse micronucleus assay of circulating blood cells.n nn
  • CARISOPRODOL was not formally evaluated for effects on fertility. Published reproductive studies of carisoprodol in mice found no alteration in fertility although an alteration in reproductive cycles characterized by a greater time spent in estrus was observed at a carisoprodol dose of 1200 mg/kg/day. In a 13-week toxicology study that did not determine fertility, mouse testes weight and sperm motility were reduced at a dose of 1200 mg/kg/day. In both studies, the no effect level was 750 mg/kg/day, corresponding to approximately 2.6 times the human equivalent dosage of 350 mg four times a day, based on a body surface area comparison. The significance of these findings for human fertility is not known.
  • The safety and efficacy of carisoprodol for the relief of acute, idiopathic mechanical low back pain was evaluated in two, 7-day, double blind, randomized, multicenter, placebo controlled, U.S. trials (Studies 1 and 2). Patients had to be 18 to 65 years old and had to have acute back pain (< 3 days of duration) to be included in the trials. Patients with chronic back pain; at increased risk for vertebral fracture (e.g., history of osteoporosis); with a history of spinal pathology (e.g., herniated nucleus pulposis, spondylolisthesis or spinal stenosis); with inflammatory back pain, or with evidence of a neurologic deficit were excluded from participation.
  • Concomitant use of analgesics (e.g., acetaminophen, NSAIDs, tramadol, opioid agonists), other muscle relaxants, botulinum toxin, sedatives (e.g., barbiturates, benzodiazepines, promethazine hydrochloride), and anti-epileptic drugs was prohibited.
  • In Study 1, patients were randomized to one of two treatment groups (i.e., CARISOPRODOL 350 mg, or placebo). In the study, patients received study medication three times a day and at bedtime for seven days.
  • The primary endpoints were the relief from starting backache and the global impression of change, as reported by patients, on Study Day #3. Both endpoints were scored on a 5-point rating scale from 0 (worst outcome) to 4 (best outcome) in both studies. The primary statistical comparison was between the CARISOPRODOL 250 mg and placebo groups in both studies. The proportion of patients who used concomitant acetaminophen, NSAIDs, tramadol, opioid agonists, other muscle relaxants, and benzodiazepines was similar in the treatment groups.
  • The results for the primary efficacy evaluations in the acute, low back pain studies are presented in Table 3.
