No, it is not a narcotic.

Soma is used in the treatment of muscle spasm; nocturnal leg cramps and belongs to the drug class skeletal muscle relaxants. Tizanidine belongs to the same drug class as Soma, but as kaismama states, tizanidine "it´s not considered to have abuse potential".

Take care,

Some isn't really a narcotic, but its a controlled med. Its a level 4 which is not as problematic as a level 2 or 1. Xanax is a level 4, to give you some perspective. Tizanidine is also a muscle relaxer but its not considered to have abuse potential, like soma is.
