I got prescribed Soma 325mg for a muscle spasm and Valuim for anxiety..But someone told me they are both muscle relaxers.Are they the same ingredients and act the same?? :eek:

No, they are not the same. They both will make you sleepy. However, valium is for anxiety, solely. I'm sure there are some docs out there that prescribe it to help people sleep. Soma's are muscle relaxers, and they will make your muscles relax and make you sleepy. If I were you, I would not take them at the same time until you are at home and see how you are going to react to them. You could just not take the valium unless you are feeling a panic attack coming on. Then you won't have to worry about being too sleepy.

no, and yes. both drugs are widely used to treat many different problems. mostley soma is used for relaxation of your muscles in your body. and valium can be used for many things. like alcohol withdrawl, muscle spasm,anxiety,many others. the valium will relax your mind so you have a relaxed body and mind.and they do not have same compounds. just take it easy. u b fine.
