|Official Title:||Randomized, Double-Blind, Double-Dummy Trial of Two Sustained Release Formulations of Carisoprodol Compared to Placebo in Subjects With Acute, Painful, Musculoskeletal Spasm of the Lower Back|
- Subject Rating of Pain on a 100-point Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: up to 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]the scale used was from 0 to 100 mm. 0 equaled no pain and 100 equaled maximum pain.participants measure their pain before treatment and during treatment at each visit
- Subject Functional Assessment Based on the Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ) [ Time Frame: up to 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Adverse Event Assessment [ Time Frame: up to 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]the number of adverse events reported during the course of the study as reported by the participants

This was a randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study in subjects 18-70 years of age with acute, painful, muscle spasm of the lower back. The study consisted of a baseline screening (Study Day 1), during which subjects were evaluated for inclusion/exclusion criteria, and a 7-day double-blind treatment period (Study Day 1 through Study Day 7). Subjects were randomly assigned to be dosed twice daily with one of the following double-blind treatments: sustained release(SR) carisoprodol 500-mg tablets,sustained release (SR) carisoprodol 700-mg tablets, or placebo.
Subjects were evaluated in the clinic on Study Days 1, 3 and 7. Subjects who remained symptomatic on Study Day 7 were allowed to continue in the study for a 7-day, double-blind extension period at the discretion of the Investigator. Subjects were contacted by telephone for a safety follow-up 7 days after the last dose of study medication.
A pharmacokinetic (PK) substudy was conducted at selected sites. These sites obtained blood samples for PK analysis at the end of the 7-day treatment period and the 14-day treatment period, if applicable.
