I am stopping this medicine today. I do not fall a sleep till the middle of the night and that is what it was given to me for, sleep issues. I get headaches and have no energy all day! Since I was better off before I took it, I will no longer take this drug.

I am disabled and was prescribed soma for muscle spasms. I take elavil at night for sleep, pain. NOW IM STARTING TO HAVE BLACKOUTS. I DO NOT SUGGEST MIXING SOMAS AND ELAVIL. I got up early one Saturday morning to go to walmart and wrecked my truck (totaled it). So I stopped taking the somas. Lucky to be alive.
