Soma is not a barbituate, however Soma comes up in U/A's as what it metabolizes into, Carbamate & Meprobramate (sedative/tranquilizer/benzodiazepine-type drug) It only remains in your system 3 maybe 4 days so a Barbituate buildup in your bloodsteam is confusing unless you were taking just way too many and mixing some meds and even then there would have to be a different diagnostic done to differentiate Soma or if it was caused from a Benzo. Soma is not outlawed, it can still be prescribed but it can be deadly if abused or mixed with downers. Entire states aren't outlawing Soma, it has been bumped up to a schedule 3 but that is mainly because of the abuse of the medication. Soma is a far superior muscle relaxer than anything else out there for most people but people will abuse aspirin if you let them. Taking more than 1 Soma at a time or too often (less than 6 hours) with Benzo or really any downer including alcohol has cause deaths. It can be taken with pain meds and Lyrica or Gabapentin but the doses should be normal doses and you can't abuse any of it. If they suspected that you were this would have been why you can't be prescribed Soma anymore, not Soma's fault because it's just not a bad medication at all.

No honey. Soma is considered a narcotic. Tizanadine is not. And it does not work very well. I used to take Valium for my horrific spasms and Valium was like a miracle pill it worked so well. Once my PAIN MANAGEMENT doctor prescribed them to me it was bye bye spasms for good!!! That is of course until these new ridiculous laws came into play and I was told you cannot take morphine and Valium at the same time. I am disabled due to my back and three surgeries actually three unsuccessful surgeries on my back my lower back I have titanium screws and plates in my back I take Morphine, Roxicodone, Tizanidine, Diclofenac, Topamax and Duloxetine all for pain in my back. Only the Morphine and Roxicodone are opiates the rest of them besides the Tizanidine which is for spasms are medications that are supposed to stop the signal of pain before it gets to your brain. They have cut down my opiates by over 75% and I am now bedridden due to the fact that I cannot barely move due to the pain because of the severeness of my injuries and the diseases they have caused in my back. If you are on any other opiates more than likely honey the only thing they are going to give you are muscle relaxers like Tizanidine because it is non-narcotic, which trust me out of all of the muscle relaxers that are not opiates is actually the best one as I have tried them ALL. (Please do not let them talk you into trying BALLOON...ITS LUKE TAKING AN AIR PILL IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!) so good luck to you honey and good luck to everyone out there that is suffering the same way we are!!!! I am actually still on the search for a new pain management doctor in Philadelphia as my own doctor even told me to try to find a new doctor that would prescribe me the medications I need because he knows with the cuts he gave me I cannot survive like this but he is too afraid and he is very conservative and has cut me down so far he knows I suffer in agony every day...

Stay on Soma and pay for them yourself, the generic is not expensive. You can use a RX discount card or if you have a Sam's Club discount it will take 50% off the price. I now pay $26 out of pocket for 90 Soma per month/3 per days as needed. I have not found anything else that compares or keeps my mind clear enough to work. I have tried several through the years and I've alway went back to Soma because it just works and works very well.

I read on Google that Tinazadine causes chest pains, heart attacks and delusions. I will stay on Soma even if I have to keep paying for it!

You are very stupid for driving on meds like that. It's illegal and I feel sorry for the people you hit. You should have been arrested and it's people like you that mess it up for people like me that need my meds! Hope you don't take your meds and drive again because it's not safe.

But if I take at night 8mg. I can't sleep. Go figure. I took my some halfed one tizanidine and xannx along with B/p med and cholesterol med and slept like a baby. Should I continue the routine

Right on. Tizanadine did nothing for me, so I took more and then went to emergency room. It made me quite ill.

Dr taking me off soma only because Insurance don't want to pay for it. I am very nervous because soma is the ONLY muscle relaxer that's EVER worked for me. I was in Soma 350mg per day for over the past 7 years. Zanaflex aka Tizanifine never worked. Getting nervous. It is what it is. Those who abuse and don't take prescribed dosage is reason pain clinics and other Doctors do not want to use it.

4mg of Tizanidine is the recommended dose for this drug. Never take more than your Dr. says. It is a
muscle relaxer which can interfere with your breathing just like other relaxers.

Re: Roro (# 32)

I was prescribed it as well. I take 1 at bedtime only and in 20 minutes I better lay down....the first thing is the dry mouth issue, then I can't hold my head up...you go to sleep, then comes the hallucinations which are very scary. While hallucinating, I saw people stealing a decorated Christmas tree outside.... what a scary trip that was. I got rid of them after being on them for 12 years, hallucinating the whole time...HELP.
