Carisoprodol is a prescription medication primarily used to relieve musculoskeletal pain and discomfort associated with muscle injuries or spasms. It works by affecting communication between nerves in the central nervous system, leading to muscle relaxation. Carisoprodol is often used in combination with rest, physical therapy, and other treatments for short-term relief of acute muscle pain.
