Can someone please explain how soma works? I've been taking it now instead of vicodin for muscle pain and it is really working for me. But I've read that it can have a serious risk of leading to addiction. How does it work? I took it a few times within the last year when my friend would give me a few and I always liked the way it made me feel. Now I'm off of vicodin and taking suboxone. I also had a prescription from another doctor for soma that I started taking every day for this intense muscle pain and spasms that I was taking the vicodin for. Anyway, now I'm taking more of the soma than the suboxone. I started taking 3 to 4 soma a day but now I'm up to 5 or 6 and maybe 1/2 to 1 of the suboxone. Should I just choose from the two and take only one or is it okay to take both together? I still like the way soma makes me feel, it really does help with the muscle pain, and helps me sleep, suboxone doesn't help with anything like that. But I don't want to get back on vicodin. Can someone please help explain how soma works and what I should do? Thanks!
