    I've always had glamourous ideas of what carisoprodol does to the human body, possibly because I never expected to run into it. I have been reading about carisoprodol/meprobamate pharmaco-logy, -dynamics, -kinetics for over two years without ever having a single encounter with the classic skeletal muscle relaxant. So I could, up until recently, only use logical reasoning to determine what such a compound would feel like. There were a few things I could be sure of. For example, I knew the sedative nature would resemble a cross between that seen with moderate/long-acting benzodiazepines. But I want to write about this feeling. And before I do, please note that I am not incriminating myself by posting this. I have a valid physician's prescription in my posession and I have taken the dose suggested. NOTE: these findings are somewhat obsecured due to a 3 day amphetamine pattern I have engaged in and it's important to know that muscular exhaustion and extreme muscle tone will no doubt magnify any physiological or psychological improvement.

    Carisoma; (carisoprodol) - - - a scored, white circular tablet containing 350 milligrams of carisoprodol and bears the imprint "WALLACE". I dissolved two tablets, after scoring them, in a small amount of lukewarm filtered H2O. The tabs dissolved quickly and I swallowed the mixture. Effects were noted after a quick 10 minutes had passed and continued to strengthen for 45 minutes. I am very very very groggy so I'm going to sleep and continue later.

    I took Soma

    I found some zoma and tooke 2 350mg pills. I had no ideas of the affects that are besically like vailum or xanax. and I took 2 more and is just coming up on those. I have a prescription is 3 a day. And was wondetring what some basics are on this drug. I feel a little bit tipsy without the nausea whoich is great.

    I was wondering if there were some things that you could do to boost or make the high more enjoyable. SWIM read that is it a muscle relaxer but acts just like a Xanax. Please Help SIWM with some fun things to do whole on this THANKS =). (and as you can tell im on it reight now)

    Re: I took zoma

    Invite all of SWIM's friend's over for a Slumber Party?

    Just be damned careful to warn SWIM that combining any sedative woth other sedatives - including alcohol - will potentiate both drugs. This can easily result in an overdose needing treatment in a hospital - or a funeral home.

    I am assuming you mean Soma - carisoprodol.

    Re: I took Soma

    ummm... you could have fun with or without the drug just doing what you like doing.

    the only time I took soma was when a girl he worked with managed to procure some from her dad's medicine cabinet. she and swim and two other co-workers went to an amusement park and rode roller coasters and other rides all day (I had never been there since he moved to this state, so they had all planned to go anyway; the soma was just a nice bonus). swim found the combination of marijuana and soma (marijuana was smoked prior to entering the park, of course) to be quite relaxing, though it didn't make anything "more fun."

    the point is, just enjoy the effects of soma. don't try to force it to be a fun drug. do what you think would be fun, whether it's laying back and watching tv or going out to an amusement park. it's not the kind of drug that will make everything suddenly awesome, but it's a nice comfortable feeling that can enhance enjoyment of whatever you already like.

    of course, that's just swim's opinion...

    Re: I took Soma

    SWIdr advises You to be extremly careful when it comes to combing CNS deppressants! But Soma (Carisprodol) has worked well (In SWIdr's experiences) with small amounts of benzos such as xanax, opiates such as hydrocodone, and ethnobotanicals like kratom and kava. SWIdr is experienced when it comes to CNS depressant combos, so be careful if You is new and planning on trying any of these combos an or others.

    Re: I took Soma

    Carisoprodol Info (mostly from rxlist)

    Chemically Carisoprodol is N-isopropyl-2-methyl-2-propyl-1,3-propanediol dicarbamate. The molecular formula is C 12 H 24 N 2 O 4 . It is slightly soluble in water, and freely soluble in acetone and alcohol. In the US it is available as 350mg tablets.

    It is a centrally acting skeletal muscle relaxant. Mode of action not clearly defined, but in animal studies it blocks neuronal transmission and depresses activity in polysynaptic neurones in the spinal cord and reticular formation.

    It is rapidly absorbed after oral abministration, metabolised by the liver (By Cytochrome P450) and excreted via the kidneys. One of the metabolites is meprobamate (which is an anxiolytic in it's own right).

    It is licensed as an adjunct to rest and physiotherapy in the treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions in the short term (recommendation is not to continue beyond two to three weeks).

    Therapeutic dose is 350mg three times a day.

    Side effects include:

    Tachycardia, postural hypotension, and facial flushing.
    Drowsiness,dizziness, vertigo, ataxia, tremor, agitation, irritability, headache, depressive reactions, syncope, seizures, and insomnia.
    Nausea, vomiting, hiccup, and epigastric discomfort.
    Idiosyncratic symptoms associated with the first dose have also been reported, typically appearing within minutes or hours. Symptoms reported include: extreme weakness, dizziness, ataxia, temporary loss of vision, diplopia, mydriasis (pupil dilatation), dysarthria, agitation, euphoria, confusion, and disorientation. Symptoms usually subside over the course of the next several hours.
    As with any drug allergic reactions ranging from a rash to anaphylaxis may occur.

    Dependance and withdrawal symptoms have been reported with use beyond several months. Withdrawal symptoms include cramps, insomnia, headache, nausea, and seizures. It is unclear whether this is primarily due to Carisoprodol itself or to it's metabolite meprobamate (which is also habit forming).

    As mentioned previously effects are addictive with others downers. It goes without saying that driving and operating heavy machinery are to be avoided.

    Overdose causes respiratory depression, seizures and coma. In lesser cases nystagmus, hypotension, euphoria, paradoxical agitation, muscular rigidity, dystonic reations, headache and hallucinations may occur.

    Re: I took Soma

    I was prescribed cyclobenzaprine and that didnt work so SWIM's doctor gave me Soma to try. It is a muscle relaxant but is it also a tranquilizer, or a benzo. Or is it in its own catagory?

    Re: I took Soma

    It is classed as a skeletal muscle relaxant (and as such, is unscheduled in the US). One of it's metabolites (as stated above) is meprobamate which is an anxiolytic (and, interestingly, Schedule IV). It is definitely NOT a benzo.

    Re: I took Soma

    Are you sure about that?

    I would always use Norflex in the past as a skeletal muscle relaxant but while its OTC in his home country and in Canada he was surprised to find that its a prescription medicine in the US!

    SWIJ stands corrected. It was scheduled in 2002

    Recently I got some Carisoma From Walter Labs. He tried them yesterday, and let me tell you that if you like downers this is something you have to try.

    Set: at home after a long day at work. Had a Shower and was ready to relax before going to bed. Onset: 10-30 min. Peak:2 hours. Total trip: Unknown

    T+0 I takes 2 pills 700 mg 2 hours after dinner. He was already tired for a hard day and not too much sleep

    T+20min He realizes that walking feels different, and his whole body is a bit numb.

    T+1h he now feels sedated and somehow euphoric. He enjoys very much playing guitar and his skills aren't impaired. He likes it but feel like he needs a boost.

    T+1:20 He smokes a joint of mj. Perfect combo as usual with MJ and he is extremely relaxed but still playing guitar and very focus.

    T+2h He lies down and feels the warmth of the sheets and nordic. He watches tv a little more but falls deeply sleep in about 20 minutes.

    After effects. In the morning he feels groggy. But he always do anyway.

    Very fun downer. Recommended. More euphoric and social than benzos and walking is so funny is almos psychedelic.

    Use with caution, this IS very addicting, you realize of it the first time.
    Always keep your doses low and avoid develop tolerance i.e give time between trips.

    Soma (Carisoprodol) experiences... ?

    I didn't find much on Soma using search (unless he missed something MAJOR), and he's interested in finding a few things out about it:

    * Does the high resemble benzos, Ambien, or what?
    * Is it euphoric at all?
    * Any recreational value to you?

    Thankx...

    Re: Soma experiences... ?

    Soma is a muscle relaxer. It is sort of like a benzo but more sedating. Some people like it, others dont. Swim loves it and finds it as a good sleep aid when needed or back pain. You definitely wont be going anywhere after taking it (depending how much).

    Taking a smaller dose of Soma (dose ranges from person to person) with a couple of beers can give one the tiniest hint of an opiate buzz. But be careful when mixing CNS depressants!

    Re: Soma (Carisoprodol) experiences... ?

    I agree with DrMuffy not to mix CNS depressents. I was on antipsychotics and klonopin at the time when swim mixed the soma with the other 2. he didnt even feel a high or relaxed at all for very long as it was followed by about 15 minutes of heart pounding crap.swim spent the rest of the time (until the quetiapine kicked in) and fell asleep. dont ask swim why that kind of reaction happened because it is still a mystery to him.

    Re: Soma (Carisoprodol) experiences... ?

    I was perscribed soma for TMJ

    The dose was 1 350mg 3 times a day. But swim hates downers during the day so I took 3 during the night =). SWIM's first time he took 2 while some friends were over late night. 10-15 minutes later I felt very light header and tingly. I didnt feel like opiate tingly but more like enegry tingly. SWIm's body felt very heavy and it was very fun to watch a tv show while dosing off to sleep. The best thing about it is I didnt have to hide it from anyone, because his mom knew he was taking them for pain reasons. The effects lasted for around 3 hours and when SWIM woke uphe felt a little tired but no real hangover. I would recomend it =).

    Re: Soma (Carisoprodol) experiences... ?

    I recently recieved a prescription for 350mg Carisoprodol(soma) pills. Through SWIM's research he has discovered that 1-2 350mg pills are usually enough for recreational use, but he wonders what the maximum safe dose would be for a 155lb person such as SWIM. I do not plan on hitting that maximum threshold, so he would only use your input as a reference. SWIM just wants to know what a safe dose would be, but also the limit of what is considered a safe dose.......

    Thank You All

    Re: Soma (Carisoprodol) experiences... ?

    SWIM weighing around 155 pounds too could take 4 at a time without any tolorance. But SWIM realized that he would rather take 2 then 2 more an hour later, 4 didnt do much more than 2 did anyways.

    I have found there is a very fine line between a fun dose of soma and stumbling around like a jackass, be carefull..
