My mom is addicted to taking carisoprodol, or what she calls Somas. They are a muscle relaxer and I believe she was taking them before because of having muscle pains and what not. She takes way more than what is prescribed to her and also buys them from friends. Has anyone else been addicted to that particular medication? I've looked online and it seems that type of medication isn't something that people normally get hooked on so I am not sure if its a known medication that cause dependency.
