  5. Why is soma addictive?
Asked: 2018-07-23 17:17:48
My doctor has prescribed me soma for a tear I received through playing basketball, but my friend is adamant that I shouldn’t take it as it’s so addictive. Why is this?

It can bring about a feeling a little like a high, that you’d get from an opiate, like heroin (although probably not as strong). Also, there are large numbers of people who abuse this drug, so your friend has a point, but be responsible about it.

Soma is addictive because you may start taking more to deal with your pain, and the high it creates is pleasurable, which in turn leads to the body wanting more and becoming addicted.
