It is a muscle relaxer and it has a sedative effect as well. Got to Drugs A to Z just under the Drugs.com logo at the top of the page and look it up and it will explain everything. You should never take tranquilizers (benzodiazepines) or drink while taking Soma or any muscle relaxer. It will intensify it and possible stop your heart.

I don't think you understand what I am asking about it's classification. When performing a drug screen, drugs show up under certain categories. example Percocet will show up as opiates, valium and xanax will show up positive as benzodiazipine's (benzos), marijuana shows up as THC, etc, etc. I want to know if a person was using Soma what category would it show up positive as on a drug screen??? I am going to perform a urine screen on my teenage son and I believe he has been using Soma as well as smoking pot. I just need to know what it will show up as. Also by the way you called tranquilizers benzos in your answer to me, that is incorrect. Tranquilizers are classified as barbituates! I do realize that benzos can have "tranquil" effect but thay are not classified as such. They are mostly prescribed as "nerve" pills or anti-anxiety meds if you will. Can someone please help me out with my question in regards to Soma please?

this is a little late but Soma is a Carisoprodol and is not going to come up under benzodiazepine

If you give your son a drug test for soma's make sure it is for them they are water soluble and are hard to detect

Soma is a muscle relaxer, is NOT a benzo, but in some drug tests it can give a false positive for benzo's as some of what it metabolizes into (Carbamate & Meprobramate) is also what some benzo's metabolize into. What drug tests look for is what the body metabolizes meds into, it cannot the tell you actual med someone has taken in this instance.

I know this is late, but since people still search for answers long after the original post, I thought it worth answering :) I had a drug test show up as false positive for benzo's due to it. Further testing is required to find out exactly what med caused the positive to show up.

Hope this helps!
