What classification are Soma's and Xanax's
dina6076 posted:
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have been searching this website to see if soma's and xanax's are in the same classification. They are both used for calming the nervous system. If I could get an answer asap I would be so greatful to you. Thank you for your time, and consideration in helping me resolve this.

Hi Dina,

Soma is classified as a muscle relaxer and xanax is a benzodiazapine or tranquilizer (it depresses the central nervous system, which helps decrease anxiety). Xanax is a dual acting benzodiazapine in that it also has an anti-depressant effect. There are some longer acting benzodiazapines that are potent muscle relaxers as well (i.e., valium, klonazepam, activan). Hope that helps! ~K.
