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!
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.
