I have been taking soma for years. I've been on parole, probation, in rehabs & have never had anybody say anything about soma in my system. Even when I have taken them that day or day before... BUT I have never had or even heard of a 12 panels screen. What all do they test for? I don't believe soma is a narcotic. So I would believe ur gonna be ok. Just flush ur system as much as possible between now & test day. Drink lots of water, tea, lemonade, etc as u can everyday till u test. Good luck.

Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, it is a muscle relaxant and, as such, it is not tested for in drug tests.

This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Are there any other questions?

What did the soma show up as? I also heard it could give a false positive for morphine?

Teena, they have never posted back yet to let us know if it showed up as anything.

But yes, Soma/Carisoprodol has been known to cause a false positive for Morphine in a small percentage of people.

soma does show up in blood and urine testing, if it is not perscribed you can have it held against you if it is found , it is a strong muscle relaxant and very abused,

You said soma showed up positive on a drug test, was is just a dip or was the test sent to a lab? Because I'm doing drug court and get randomly tested and was not sure if soma was considered a narcotic or not, I'm told if it isn't I'm fine to take it. If it just shows a fake positive for morphine on a dip I'm fine because they send the test for lab evaluation, but I could really use your help finding this out, thank you.

Soma never showed up on my 10 or 12 (not sure which 1) screen ua's so I'm sure you'll be fine. I took 3 the day b4 & was worried, so I went to Walgreens & bought their most expensive test (dipstick) & it came back fine. I was "clean" in both tests. I've heard it comes up as morphine but when retested it comes up that it was a false positive. I hope this helped & wasn't 5 wks too late like my reply was! î‰ happy testing

I think this depends on the kind of urine test that is ordered. I get UA's every few months, and my pain mgt. Dr uses a 12 panel screen. Soma absolutely is NOT included in those standard 12 and I am 1000% sure of this... I do take Soma and I'm also looking at the test form right now!! However, the Dr's also have the option of testing for many other things... they just need to ask for the other ones on the test request form. Most of the time, my Dr just orders the 12 panel, but maybe twice a year he will spring a "full" test on me, which DOES include Soma, and stuff like Fentanyl, Ambien, Tramadol, even alcohol.

Having said all this... in Jan. 2012, Soma became a controlled substance, and it wasn't controlled up to that point. So we may indeed see Soma included on a standard 12-panel test in the future, who knows.

For now, on a 12-panel test, you're all good, 100% sure.

What the heck, as long as I'm looking at this test form, here's what is tested on a 12-panel urine test. Sorry this will be long, but it's good info and standard on any 12-panel. If the Dr orders a 12-panel, all of this is tested either positive or negative. They also have the option of requesting a QUANTITY (like how much is in your system, not just a positive or negative), but my Dr has never done this and I don't think it's very common.

Tested on 12-panel: THC, Cocaine, Opiates (includes Codeine, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Morphine and Norhydrocodone), Oxycodone (seperated from "Opiates" for some reason), Amphetamines, Meth, Phencyclidine, MDMA (ecstasy, I believe), Barbituates, Benzos, Methadone, and Tricyclic anti-depressants.

There's another 25 things that could be tested ONLY if requested individually by the Dr. Weirdly, heroin is NOT included in the standard 12 panel above. This extra stuff includes heroin, bath salts, ketamine, Soma, synthetic pot, Lyrica, etc.

I hope this helps anybody who is stressing about their urine tests ! Good luck !

Linda,
How do you know a quantitative analysis isn't ordered? I ask because my pm doc sends my urine off to a lab and I have no idea how he sensed a low reading on my prescribed oxycodone-which I had run out of 4 days prior to test. I never see what they test for, I only get a bill. My dilemma, which brought me here, is I had a different doctor prescribe Soma and I'm afraid my pm might dismiss me if it shows on my urine drug panel. I told my 2nd treating doctor (for injections) that I cannot take controlled sub. from other docs (narcotics) & he prescribes me Soma & Tramadol. I trusted him but I think he screwed me. Now, according to your post, both will show up in my urine. I am a legitimate pain patient, unlike 90% of the posters here.

Soma is a controlled substance in many states. It is a narcotic muscle relaxer, but turns into meprobamate in the body when metabolized by the liver. Meprobamate is the generic name for Miltown and Equanil, an anti-anxiety medicine. I worked in a pharmacy for 12 years so I know this to be true.
