Wonder drug! Not addicting. I have taken this drug for over 4 years after my last back surgery. Flexeril, etc., I relocated to another state and now am unable to find a doc to will continue with this medication. I am now unable to do daily tasks. They are happy to prescribe opiates for pain, but apparently soma is an issue now. Pain meds only help so much, but the soma was the icing on the cake.

I have been taking this drug for back spasms and Fibromyalgia for about 7 months. My doctor prescribed this to me after flexeril and zanaflex stopped working for me. This medication has helped me enourmesly. The only downside to the medication is the drowsiness that I sometimes feel, but that is a small price to pay to be pain free!

sorry I had to rate this drug but haven't tried it yet. I have been on tramadol or ultram which ever you want to use. never had any problems or nothing with it. I take 200mg a day and now doc want me to take less and add other pills to help with the spasms. never had to do that but as I have been on them for 10 years they want me to cut back. so I guess they want everyone who takes a good pill ...

Comment:
I was told I could no longer have soma, after cancer and 5 surgeries because "it is addicting" So after over 10 years of daily use it was suddenly taken away. I had no withdrawals, no urges, no problems at all… Why? Because Soma is not a narcotic! And therefore is not physically addicting! Since then, the only thing I have gained is more pain and muscular discomfort… I no longer go ... Show Full Comment
