Hey thebritt,

Soma may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Soma should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it. You may have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using Soma after using it over a long period of time. Withdrawal symptoms include stomach pain, sleep problems, headache, nausea, and seizure (convulsions). Do not stop using Soma suddenly without first talking to your doctor. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely.

Hope this helps,

Laurie

Oh boy can it be, it ruined my life for awhile, I used to drive around town in the middle of the night naked and not remember in the morning, I got a DUI on soma, and i don't drink alcohol ever. I was taking upwards of 25 pills a day. be very very careful with this medication, it's very sedating, and that's the appeal, it's like being high. So please be careful and good luck

I heard they are taking Soma off the market. I believe this info came from DzooBaby...

I already know several doctor who won't prescribe it, they will do zanaflex, valium, flexeril (spelling?), before they will give you soma, espcially in the ER when i used to go hunting for it.

Well, once again I am the odd (wo)man out here...
I have taken Soma since 2006 and it has NEVER caused a problem for me, and I have never had to increase my dose--it just keeps on working, night after night!
As stated above, it should not be used by anyone with an addictive personality; however, it CAN be safe (and very effective) for others.
I have extreme chronic neck and shoulder pain from cervical stenosis, and Soma is the ONLY med that has helped--plus it 'lets' me sleep, not makes me sleep... and I wake up without that hung over feeling in the morning--plus I am able to STAY asleep for 6-8 hours.
For someone with a 35 year history of insomnia this was just amazing!!!
