soma-not a benzo
I called walgreens and asked a pharmacist if soma was indeed a benzo. She said no, it is not. Just to clarify about my earlier post asking. Shoulda called the pharmacist before asking but I forgot all about making phone calls, god forbid when I have the internet! hah!

Thats true it is a muscle relaxant.......

Soma
Generic Name: carisoprodol (kar eye soe PROE dole)
Brand Names: Soma, Vanadom


Soma is a muscle relaxer that works by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain.

Soma is used together with rest and physical therapy to treat injuries and other painful musculoskeletal conditions.

my mistake I thought it was comparable to Valium

It is not a benzo under the name Soma or carisoprodol.  It's metabolic make up is the same as an old benzo called meprobamate, or the brand name of Miltown.  It was a popular "mothers little helper" years ago...much abused so they don;t prescribe for that anymore.  They just market it as a muscle relaxer now.  It's why Nicole Richey is like she is...when it hits, it's similar to a heroin buzz.  Someone close to me is involved with this-I know a lot about it.

Ive never gotten any heroin buzz off it. Maybe your friend takes too many at a time? For me, and trust me, I was on them 120 a week on and off for a year they were nothing like heroin...
