As to the former police officer who was speaking about Soma most of that is spot on but Meprobamate is not a barbiturate it’s a carpizine derived drug that has properties very similar barbiturates but it’s not Miltown was toughted as the new drug a non barbiturate sedative it actually came out about a decade before benzodiazepines I’ve been prescribed other Soma and the generic equivalent of Miltown 400 these drugs especially Soma can impair you severely if you’re someone not used to taking these types of drugs they will knock you for a loop but people don’t realize the strength of many of the benzodiazepines prescribed I mean an equal dose of Meprobamate to my Xanax is higher than what you’re clinically supposed to take at one time 400mg Meprobamate is only equivalent to 1mg Xanax and that’s being liberal with the dosing calculator my point is be safe no matter what.
But it’s not a barbiturate and as for The Rolling Stones- Mother’s Little Helper was about Valium and at th end barbiturate sleeping pills last verses after saying I hear every mother say mother just need something to calm her down and all though she not really I’ll theres a little yellow pill she goes running... (*Valium 5mg were yellow and handed out like candy) then it goes into the barbiturate sleeping pills “to help you through the night help to minimize you’re plight... life’s just much too hard today I hear every mother say the pursuit of happiness just seems a bore but if you take more of them se you will get an overdose no more running for the shelter of you’re Mother’s little helper”
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, BuSpar (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 barbiturate, 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 barbiturate, 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.
no soma will not come up as a benzo. It is not in the benzodiasapine class. I can assure you that
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
No soma does not show up on a drug screen it is non-narcotic it just has addictive ingredients and so does xanax it too is also a non-narcotic it just causes you to have addictive behaviors. Hope this was helpful you will be fine are you prescribed the xanax?
