I just went do the doctor and i got my regular 28 day prescriptions 210 oxycodone 30 mg, 90 2mg xanax, and 90 15 mg oxycodone (Break away, and 90 soma 350mg. I forget what the doctor told me about mixing the soma and xanax. this is the first time that i have been prescibed soma because i went to a brand new doctor today, and i cant remember if he told me to wait 3 hours before taking the xanax, or if i should wait 4 hours. Im pretty sure that he said 4 hours but im not %100. thankyou for all your help


  • I called him. hes a great doctor. he even has a personal business cell phone. but incase anybody wants to know. it is 4 hours.

  • You did the right thing in calling your doctor to clarify how he wanted you to take the medications. You said that the Soma was from a different doctor than the one that you usually see? Is your PM doctor aware of the addition of Soma? If not, you might want to call him and let him know about it and ask him if he wants you to take it. Soma is a schedule II medication and is addictive. That's why many doctors don't prescribe it anymore. It is also one of the best muscle relaxers around.
    Anyway, if you haven't told your PM doctor about this addition to your regular medications, please call him and find out if he is okay with it, otherwise, you may find yourself in trouble with the PM doctor.
