can i take soma with suboxone
I am taking suboxone for chronic pain but having severe muscle spasms I am thinking about asking my pain doc for soma I have tried flexeril and zanaflex and got no relief ## Hello, Kimmy! How are you? The Naloxone that is in the Suboxone along with the Buprenorphine only neutralizes other opiates. Soma is a muscle relaxant, so yes, you should be able to take it, but you do need to check with your doctor to be safe. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache. Learn more Soma details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

suboxone and soma
Can you be on suboxone and take soma for severe muscle spasms and pain? ## Yes. ## I would not suggest doing so without your doctor's approval, but yes, narcotics and muscle relaxants are often prescribed together, to help control pain that one doesn't touch. Suboxone contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, it is used to help people with drug addiction and to treat some cases od severe pain. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, it is a muscle relaxant. Taking the two, together, my aggravate the side effects, which can include: nausea, drowsiness, constipation and dizziness. You can read more about them here: Did you have any other questions? ## Yes, Im rxed both Flexeril, soma, and 16mg Suboxone EDay and Im told by my pharmacist and doc. to use either the flex... ...

I need some information about Suboxone
I am trying to be supportive of someone who is addicted to pills (oxy, perc, vic-anything opiate). I thought I had an addictive personality until I watched him self destruct and lose everything for these things. He went to a 7day treatment center. And is now taking Suboxone. I used to do a lot of diff. pills when I was younger. Not even sure what they all were, I'm thinking mostly nerve and muscle relaxers, boyfriend used to just be like, here take these. I know we did somas, zanis and klonipin for sure, otherwise, don't really know. Took zanis about everyday, then we made a baby :) lol. Accident of course. Anyways, I am tempted just to try a Percocet just to see how it makes me feel. I just can't imagine losing everything I ever had for those things. At any rate, he is on S... ...

Is it ok to use benzos and/or muscle relaxers while in prerequisite withdrawal?
Hello, I'm starting the prerequisite withdrawal period before my first suboxone appointment. I would desperately like to know if I can take a xanax or maybe a soma during this period to ease symptoms? Thanks so much for your time... ## Due to the nature of your question, this may be something best answered by your doctor who can make a more informed decision based on your medical records, current health, age, weight, whether or not you're taking any other medications, etc. However based on my research, as long as you're not taking the xanax or soma with suboxone at the same time, you should be fine. Reason being is that there are drug interactions between those medications that may result in increased side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. ... ...

Suggestions please
I had gastric bypass in 2010 and am considered a rapid metabolizer for opiates. I have 5 herniated discs in my lower back and nerve disease and stay in constant pain. I have been to 9 pain management docs bc no one wants to take on my case and is scared to prescribed the amounts of medication I need to get through the day. I have tried physical therapy, injections and acupuncture all to no avail. I have a great doc now who is at least trying to help me and currently has me on dilaudid, soma, Lyrica, and suboxone patches most are three and six times daily. I have 5 children and that allows me to function daily with less pain than without. With the metabolizing issue I have no side effects or withdrawal symptoms when taken off, only with the soma I had to cut down to 1/2 of 350 mg 3 times... ...

Broke
I am almost 33 and suffer from severe chronic pain. I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. I also believe there may be further issues. I have been on Vic Noroco soma and even suboxone. I am currently not prescribed anything and going through hell. I need a good doctor near warren michigan who is going to figure out exactly what needs to be done to manage my pain. Most days I can hardly move. I am desperate I have two young boys that need me to be active. ## Hello, Kerri! How are you? If you require treatment on a long-term ongoing basis, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, that would actually be the quick and easy way to get the help you need, because they can refer you t... ...

Can U Snort Soma? I have a friend that dose and she is on suboxone
please let me know i dont want anything to happen to her. thanks ## Most likely ur friend will be ok, Soma is and can b rxed w/ suboxone. As for the snorting part, tell her to knock that off as she is wasting her soma. To get the most out of ur soma it can be plugged or rectally inserted for a near 100% bioavailability or easily swallowed for around 85-90% BAv. snorting is not always best as it messes up the cilia in ur nose and also shes not getting but maybe 60% if shes lucky so if she has the 350 shes only getting a max of 200mg per pill when she could pop a few and get more out of her medication- Just letting U kno! But don't worry as Im rxed and on 3 350mg somas, and 16mg's subox right now and feel fine. also, if she stoped the subox, the soma would work better alone as it ... ...
