Interaction of Soma 500mg tablets with other medications
The sedative effects of this medication along with other CNS depressants such as benzodiazepines, tricyclic antidepressants, alcohol and opioids can be additive. Thus, care should be taken in patients who simultaneously ingest more than one CNS depressant.
Simultaneous use of meprobamate, a metabolite of soma and the soma drug must be strictly avoided. Carisoprodol, the primary ingredient in soma, gets metabolized by CYP2C19 in the liver to form meprobamate.
Co-administration of CYP2C19 inhibitors, for example, fluvoxamine or omeprazole with soma may cause reduced exposure of meprobamate and greater exposure of carisoprodol.
On the other hand, co-administration of CYP2C19 inducers, for example, St. John’s wort or rifampin with Soma drug may lead to greater exposure of meprobamate and reduced exposure of carisoprodol. Low dose of aspirin is also a CYP2C19 inducer.
