Can you die from a Soma overdose?

Answer

Fatal Soma overdoses have been reported, according to RxList. The fatal overdoses were caused either by Soma alone or Soma in combination with central nervous system depressants. The fatal overdoses on record occurred both accidentally and on purpose.

Soma overdoses are potentially fatal because they commonly produce central nervous system depression. Aside from death, Soma overdoses have resulted in coma, seizures, delirium, hypotension, hallucinations, blurred vision, euphoria and respiratory depression. According to Drugs.com, Soma has habit-forming potential and should never be given to persons without a prescription, particularly if they have a history of drug abuse and addiction. The medication is used to block pain sensations between nerves and the brain; it is combined with physical therapy to treat injuries.
