Is it OK to take Soma? I looked it up but couldn't make heads or tails of what was said. Maybe it's just to early for me. TIA!

    If carisoprodol is required by the mother, it is not necessarily a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. Slight sedation has occurred in a breastfed newborn infant who was exposed during pregnancy and lactation; sedation might be more pronounced in newborns who are exposed for the first time during nursing. Other agents may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant, or when other drugs that can cause sedation are used simultaneously.


    So, yes, you can take it if there isn't anything else that will work.

    Thanks! This weather is killing me. I ended up not taking anything, but didn't do much other than lay on a heating pad for most of the day.
