    I was wondering if there were any muscle relaxers worth using for recreational purposes and/or for an effective sleep aid?

    Soma, but be careful there are some that look EXACTLY like it, but the suck. Robaxin or something seems like it was it

    Soma works well as a sleep aid. There is a lil bit of rec use in it, but not a whol lot.

    Soma is awesome. One thing that annoys SWIM about it though is that it takes a while to kick in so I would take one 1-2 hours

    Skelaxin makes me feel awesome, but he has to take quite a bit.

    A friend of mine snorted a single Skelaxin (does not remember dosage currently--1 large pink one?) and felt no noticeable effects. Wayyyy too much powder, too.

    But he never tried more than that--did You just take it? How many?

    I have a miserable back at times so he has a minor tolerance, but he can get high from orally ingesting 3 of the same pills You spoke of.

    Soma can be great - I find that the key to enjoying muscle relaxers recreationally is to take them with a *SMALL* amount of alcohol (ie. one or two beers, or a glass of wine or SWIM's pretentious favorite...a glass of port.)

    The obvious and giant disclaimer here is that overdoing the booze is a SURE way to pass the hell out into a dangerous coma of suck. Don't go out and do six shots of vodka with a stack of muscle relaxers - think of it more of a kick-start than a true combo. Drinking enough to get tipsy is drinking too much.

    Please use pharmaceutical/generic names rather than brand names. Doing so will avoid confusion on this international forum

    Soma = Carisoprodol
    Robaxin = Methocarbamol
    Skelaxin = Metaxolone
    Flexeril = Cyclobenzaprine
    Zanaflex = Tizanidine

    Your Marmoset could also try UTFSE!

    Cyclobenzaprine is pretty nice, from what a friend said.

    I have yet to try it, but I has heard that soma is a pretty good muscle relaxer for recreational purposes. I have tried flexeril a few times (up to 40mg) and it doesn't have too much recreational purposes, but I feel very relaxed within 30 minutes after taking them.

    If You really wants to get the most out of muscle relaxers, try combining a small dose of benzo's with a small dose of muscle relaxants. Swim recommends around 2mg of either xanax or klonopin and maybe 10 - 20 mg of flexeril or soma. Last time I took xanax with flexeril, I was in heaven for at least 8 hours.

    Please bear in mind that combining drugs with sedative effects increases those effects, with outcomes right through from oversedation, to possible coma and respiratory depression +/- death.

    Yeah, that's always something that You should lookout for. If You is still interested in trying the benzo/muscle relaxant combo, maybe try with a smaller dose of benzos such as .5mg of klonopin or .5mg of xanax. Swim thinks that shouldn't cause too much sedation. And, if you are feeling really sedated, You could always drink a cup of coffee or drink an energy drink.

    I take 1-4 800mg skelaxin feel pretty good. feels mega ultra l33t if i mix with 80mg OC. I am lucky and has a doc that gives him the really good stuff tho swim spent a year or so trying weaker thing and reporting back to my doc they were not strong enough.

    ^^^ Look at the post above yours, always include drug names, not just brand names. This makes things much clearer.

    I had given up on rec value of muscle relaxers for a while until he was prescribed Carisoprodol for his knee. 350mgs gives swim a light almost low benzo like buzz, 700mgs makes me goofy and lucid feeling for the first hour and quickly going into a nice laid back buzz 1050mgs+ and i'm not movin off the couch.
    A couple things that I think makes soma the best MR by a long shot: they don't make you nearly as sleepy as the others, they hit you fast as hell, so fast the initlial buzz is the funnest, a almost benzo like effect, sometime will make u wanna just sit down and smile, and they help minor aches and pains a lot. Swim likes flexeril OK too, but its buzz isn't quite as strong and a lil more sleepy.
    Swim still like to use MRs in combination with painers most the time though.
    Peace

    I wouldn't recommend cyclobenzaprine, I have taken it in high doses and basically just fell asleep. Certainly wasn't unpleasant but I didn't find it worth repeating.
