Soma (Carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant prescribed to treat musculoskeletal pain and injury. There is a high rate of poly-drug experimentation associated with its use, especially with alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opiates, which all tend to amplify its effects. Soma is taken orally as a tablet. Visit the Soma Page for more information.
