    It is difficult to find complete information on drug interactions on the internet. You should never combine one drug with another without checking with a physician or a pharmacist.

    The Health Central website states that you should check with your physician if you taking soma and a narcotic-type pain medication. Even though subutex is used to treat narcotic withdrawl it is a narcotic type pain medication. Therefore you should check with your doctor or pharmacist before you take them together. Good luck!

      I take 4 mg of Suboxone per day, and Soma 350 mg (generic), on an as-needed basis, under close supervision of my MD.  I haven't encountered any problems. In fact, Suboxone alleviates the pain from a degenerative disc condition; and Soma is effective for alleviating sciatica spasms.  The drug doesn't directly work on the nerves or muscles themselves; but it certainly alleviates my low back pain.  It's the only medication other than Excedrin I take for my condition - and I have never had any adverse reactions to the combination.  But each patient is different - and the amount of Subutex you are taking is very important, because the combination potentially can affect your breathing, respiration, etc., or "CNS (central nervous system) depression."
