Soma is a Carisoprodol. The initial "cup" test will not show pos or non neg unless they test for carisoprodol. The quantitative test will however show up if they do a confirmatory. depending on the situation. And for the person that said Xanax is a non narcotic. Check out shedule for Soma and Xanax on prescribing. Xanax is a bzo. But soma normally will not be on the cup test
Wrong. Wrong. And wrong again. As a former police officer, I had a case where the driver was just taking Soma. I can speak with 100% accuracy that Soma is not a benzodiazepine, it is not a narcotic. It is a muscle relaxant and sedative that the human body changes from one chemical to another. Doctors often say there's a little codeine in it, or there is a little "something" - they use that line as a verbal placebo to make the patient believe it is stronger - I've been in court with several cases like this - Soma, Busbar (buspirone), Ultram (tramadol), Darvon (propoxyphene) - there is no "little bit of something" in any of the aforementioned medications.
Soma, the pill in your hand, is 100% carisoprodol, with fillers and binders and inactive ingredients to keep it from spoilage, but that's it. The HUGE issue with Soma is that once it gets into the body, our enzymes and digestive tract CHANGE the innoculous muscle relaxant Soma into a drug from those ever-lovin' 60's - "Miltown". Miltown is a powerful, dangerous barbituate, and the barbituates as a group are far more dangerous than the benzodiazapines of today. In 1965 Miltown was the most prescribed drug in the world, and was the notorious pill in the Rolling Stones' "Mother's Little Helper", and Miltown was what all the ladies in the 1966 book and 1967 movie "The Valley Of The Dolls" were taking along with their afternoon cocktails.
Unfortunately, patients ingest what they think is "just" a muscle relaxant, but broken down after about 3-4 hours becomes this strong, dangerous barbituate, and the patient is almost NEVER told what happens. The patient feels the efects of Soma within 30 minutes, then, about 3 hours later, that mild relaxant feeling fades, and that is when the SECOND psychotropic effects begin. Unfortunately, the unsuspecting patient assumes the drug has peaked, so they may take another Soma, or have a drink, unaware that levels of a barbitutate are now rising, and that's the problem.
It never has anything "extra" in it - our bodies metabolize carisoprodol/Soma into meprobamate/Miltown.
