I went to get a second opinion about my severe facet arthritis from another OS. He thinks I should take Soma for the pain I get in my upper back and neck. He wrote me a rx and sent me on my way. Since my PCP write my rx for MsContin, Percocet and skelexin I thought I should run it by her. Her MA called and said she would never write a rx for soma due to its highly addictive properties and strongly suggested that I not fill it. I told her I wouldnt and made an appt. for in a few weeks to discuss. Has anyone had this happen to them? I am already taking highly addictive drugs why is Soma different? I have tried flexeril, robaxin and currently Skelexin. Any one take a different muscle relaxer long term that works well and doesn't make tired in the daytime? I am trying to not have another surgery until I have to. The surgery that I will probably have in the future will be for instability and I probably won't be able to return to work.
