> Ah... sweet, sweet hydrocodone... tis good for EVERYTHING.
> As for soma? Well sure it works for SP, same way alcohol does. However, it's mighty addictive - just like it's relative mepobromate.


It is a relative, and dose metabolize as mepro. I've never tried it, but you may be right in that it is listed to have caused stupor, as well as coma and death. Ha! Soma Coma. If comas were a good thing, imagine the marketing potential. Ooops. That joke connects with that movie from the Kids in the Hall about the happy pill... uh-oh. too funny.

Anyway, Soma Coma. How cool does that sound? Imagine if junkies volunteered themselves into a coma. Drug addiction wouldn't be so visible anymore, how cool!

Well, actually, the truth is that only in patients with a clinical history of drug abuse should be watched. Here we go:

from rxlist-

In dogs, no withdrawal symptoms occurred after abrupt cessation of carisoprodol from dosages as high as 1 g/kg/day. In a study in man, abrupt cessation of 100 mg/kg/day (about five times the recommended daily adult dosage) was followed in some subjects by mild withdrawal symptoms such as abdominal cramps, insomnia, chilliness, headache, and nausea. Delirium and convulsions did not occur. In clinical use, psychological dependence and abuse have been rare, and there have been no reports of significant abstinence signs. Nevertheless, the drug should be used with caution in addiction-prone individuals.
