Counterfeit Soma

  repeated oral Pharms - Carisoprodol (pill / tablet)
I have been a frequent user of soma for sometime now. On a vacation to Mexico I decided to hit up the pharmacy so as to cut out the middle man and save money. I Bought 300 pills expecting them to last me the remainder of the semester. Upon return to the states I was sadly disappointed. Apparently, Soma and Zocor are two pharmaceuticals notorious for being counterfeit. I ingested the normal amount to feel messed up (4pills) but felt nothing, I gradually increased the dosage, hoping to feel the great Soma feeling. Eventually I made it to 11, just feeling slightly buzzed and incredibly tired, not what I expected. Belligerent about being ripped off I visited the FDA website. They have issued a report about these drugs lacking potency. As a warning to all who wish to import these drugs back home. Be careful, until they find the source of the leak, it is entirely not worth it. And remember, watered down pills still look the same to Customs Agents.
