How does Soma Compound interact with other medications or foods?

Soma Compound (carisoprodol and aspirin) can potentially interact with a number of medications, so it is important to talk with your doctor or pharmacist about all medications that you are currently taking or plan to take, including vitamins and supplements, before starting on Soma Compound.

Potential medications that may interact with Soma Compound and cause severe fatigue and excessive sleep include: opioid analgesics, such as hydrocodone, sodium oxybate (GHB), benzodiazepines and tricyclic antidepressants.

Certain medications, such as celecoxib, dabigatran, ketorolac, certain serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's), clopidogrel and blood thinners like heparin, may also increase the possibility of bleeding in the stomach and other areas of the body and should be avoided without first talking with your doctor. Other medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), meprobamate, fluvoxamine and omeprazole, may magnify certain side effects of Soma Compound. Also avoid using rifampin, urinary alkanizers, St. John's Wort, corticosteroids and antacids, as they could reduce the effectiveness of Soma Compound in your system.

Tell your doctor that you are taking Soma Compound before receiving a flu vaccine or any live vaccine. Having the flu or being vaccinated while taking Soma Compound may increase your risk of Reye's syndrome, especially in children.

Soma Compound can also magnify or decrease the effects of other medication that you may be on. Soma Compound may increase the potency of medications, such as insulin, methotrexate, valproic acid, sulfonylureas, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and meglitinide antidiabetics. In contrast, Soma Compound may decrease the potency of medications, such as spironolactone, probenecid and sulfinpyrazone.
