Soma is prescribed for those experiencing musculoskeletal pain.
Soma is traditionally taken as a 350mg pill, which lasts for up to six hours, three times a day with a dose taken at bedtime.
Soma can give patients a slight sense of euphoria. Those with sulfa drug allergies may or may not be able to use some formulations of this drug.
Abused commonly in the 1950s and 1960s, Soma can be used for its relaxant properties. High anti-social traits can be seen in those who experience withdrawal from the drug, as well as cognitive deficiencies that can persist for days to years. The combination of Soma with opioids and benzos is referred to as the “Holy Trinity,” due to the quality of high users get. Many overdoses on Soma occur due to the high rate of drug interactions in users who aren’t aware of them.
In 2014 actress Skye McCole Bartusiak died of an overdose due to the combined effects of carisoprodol, hydrocodone and difluoroethane.
