Post soma .. does it make you sleepy?

Hey all ... Just wondering if soma makes you sleepy. I want to request it from my doctor this week. I need something to help me sleep and my current muscle relaxer does not make me sleepy at all. Thanks in advance for the info.

Hi P-nacho:
Have you ever tried Ambien for sleep? It works really well for me. Just an idea if Soma doesn't work out for you.

Soma definitely makes me sleepy. I was told that usually wears off after a few days but it didn't for me. I only take a half if I need it during the day or I am nappin. A whole one does me in. Hope it works for you...

hey thanks for the info. I think I'll try soma first.. since I need muscle relaxers anyways. I'm a lightweight with medicines anyways so hopefully it'll put me out. If not I'll definately try ambien next!
