The doctor just prescribed me the medicine called Soma Compound. What are the side effects of it?
I've herd that some people have used this medicine to get high off of. Well I was wondering if it could be harmful. What are the side effects?
Asked by Cherish Weller 2 years ago.
I have not heard of this drug prescribed in years. There is something out there in the news relating to Soma Compound. I know that I took it for a muscle relaxer years ago. I gave one to a friend at work and he lived about thirty minutes from the airport. He told me the next day that he had to pull over to the side of the road and take a nap. As for me I don't think it affected me to that extreme. Answered by Garrett Gilliss 2 years ago.
The only side effect I encountered with Soma was that it made me a little sleepy. I can't imagine it making anyone high though. Answered by Jeana Kamelamela 2 years ago.

Does Soma show up on a UA?
I just need to know if Soma shows up on a standard UA? Also what is the compound in it that makes you feel so good and what class does that fall under.

Soma (generic name is carisoprodol, or meprobamate) ... will not show up unless the lab does a drug screen. It's a muscle relaxant,mildtranquilizer ... and also a prescription drug. Answered by Alfreda Boyum 2 years ago.
No, it will not show up. Soma, 'Carisoprodol' is a muscle relaxer. Not a narcotic. Answered by Min Drewing 2 years ago.
Valium For Muscle Spasm?

Just talk to your doctor and tell him that you have been having painful muscle spasms. There are a number of muscle relaxants including: Zanaflex (tizanidine) Norflex (orphenadrine) Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) Soma (carisoprodol)- a controlled substance in some US states Soma Compound (carisoprodol/aspirin)- a controlled substance in some US states Soma Compound with Codeine (carisoprodol/aspirin/codeine)- a schedule III controlled substance Valium (diazepam)- schedule IV controlled substance Miltown (meprobamate)- a schedule IV controlled substance There is very limited or inconsistent data regarding the effectiveness of the following Parafon Forte DSC (chlorzoxazone) Robaxin (methocarbamol) Skelaxin (metaxalone) Dantrium (dantrolene) Lioresal (baclofen) Granted Valium (diazepam) does have a potential for abuse but in some cases it is the best medication and it is a massive overgeneralization that doctors don't like to prescribe it. Since muscle relaxants are typically used for a short time and since Valium so extremely effective and it tends to have few side effects and is well tolerated it is often prescribed. Although in general Flexeril and Soma are the most commonly used medications and both are typically very effective. In some cases it can take a couple of tries to find the best medication especially since not all muscle relaxants work in the same way. So just see what your doctor says and try his recommendation.

Just tell the doc that you are having spasms. Let them decide what medication you need. There are nonhabit - forming muscle relaxants. Answered by Althea Bantillan 2 years ago.

How long does the drug soma stay in your system?
Asked by Elizbeth Hotovec 2 years ago.
Soma (carisoprodol) has a half-life elimination of 2.4 hours. The active metabolite meprobamate has a half-life elimination of 10 hours -- in healthy individuals. Usually, compounds and their metabolites are detectable in urine for 5 (five) half-lives. So, carisoprodol is detectable in urine for 50+ hours after ingestion.
