Meprobamate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Meprobamate (marketed under the brand names Miltown by Wallace Laboratories,. carisoprodol and tybamate (prodrugs of meprobamate) and mebutamate.

Meprobamate was first synthesized by Bernard John Ludwig, PhD, and Frank Milan Berger, MD, at Carter Products in May 1950. Wallace Laboratories, a subsidiary of Carter Products, bought the license and named it Miltown after the borough of Milltown in New Jersey. Launched in 1955, it rapidly became the first blockbuster psychotropic drug in American history, becoming popular in Hollywood and gaining notoriety for its seemingly miraculous effects.

Meprobamate, like barbiturates, possesses an analgesic/anesthetic potential.

This paper considers the pharmacology of the centrally acting muscle relaxant carisoprodol, and its metabolite meprobamate, which is also administered as an anxiolytic in its own right. Literature implicating these drugs in impaired driving is also reviewed. A series of 104 incidents in which these drugs were detected in the blood of drivers involved in accidents or arrested for impaired driving was considered, with respect to the analytical toxicology results, patterns of drug use in these subjects, the driving behaviors exhibited, and the symptoms observed in the drivers. Symptomatology and driving impairment were consistent with other CNS depressants, most notably alcohol. Reported driving behaviors included erratic lane travel, weaving, driving slowly, swerving, stopping in traffic, and hitting parked cars and other stationary objects. Drivers on contact by the police displayed poor balance and coordination, horizontal gaze nystagmus, bloodshot eyes, unsteadiness, slurred speech, slow responses, tendency to doze off or fall asleep, difficulty standing, walking or exiting their vehicles, and disorientation. Many of these cases had alcohol or other centrally acting drugs present also, making difficult the attribution of the documented impairment specifically to carisoprodol and meprobamate. In 21 cases, however, no other drugs were detected, and similar symptoms were present. Impairment appeared to be possible at any concentration of these two drugs; however, the most severe driving impairment and most overt symptoms of intoxication were noted when the combined concentration exceeded 10 mg/L, a level still within the normal therapeutic range.

Evaluating the Relationship Between Carisoprodol Concentrations

Liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry was used to quantitate carisoprodol and meprobamate concentrations in urine specimens. The log.

All spectra were collected using positive electrospray ionization. The optimized instrumental parameters were as follows: gas temperature, 350°C; drying gas, 12 L/min; nebulizer gas (nitrogen), 35 psi (∼ 24,100 Pa); capillary voltage, 3,000 V; and fragmenter voltage, 60 V. Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode was used for quantitation. Scan time was set to 500 milliseconds. In MRM mode, two transitions were used to identify and quantitate a single compound. A quantitative transition was used to calculate concentration based on the quantifier ion and a second transition was used to ensure accurate identification of the target compound based on the ratio of the qualifier ion to the quantifier ion.

Tramadol and carisoprodol
Meprobamate or Soma? - Bluelight

I can obtain Soma which i believe is a prodrug of meprobamate but with muscle relaxing properties. So i am considering getting Soma.
