Description:

Carisoprodol (Soma) Urine Drug Test

This test looks for Carisoprodol in a urine sample.  Carisoprodol, more commonly known by the brand name Soma, is a prescription muscle relaxant.  It acts by blocking the pain sensations between the nerves and the brain.  Soma is typically prescribed to treat pain and discomfort caused by sprains, strains, and other injuries.  Soma is normally intended only for temporary use and should only be used for several weeks.  Prolonged usage can result in dependence and addiction.  Soma is sometimes abused and taken recreationally because it can produce a euphoric high.  It is also used to enhance the effects of other illicit drugs.  When taken improperly, Soma can cause side effects such as lack of coordination, dizziness, fainting, seizures, rapid heartbeat, insomnia, and irritability.  Overdoses can be potentially fatal, especially when combined with other drugs. 

Soma is typically detectable in urine for 2-7 days after use.  The detection period will vary depending on a  number of factors such as height, weight, metabolism, and dosage.  This test looks for Carisoprodol as well as the metabolite Meprobamate.  Positive results will provide a numerical value for the level detected.

A blood test for Carisoprodol (Soma) is also available.  For more testing options, please see our Drug Testing Category
