is it ok for me to take milk thistle with soma (carisoprodol)?

No: Soma (carisoprodol) is a highly regulated muscle relaxant whose future is in doubt. It has been shown to be addictive and dangerous when used with other meds. Milk thistle is not generally part of main stream medical therapy; its safety and efficacy is unproven. See your doctor for complete evaluation and treatment options.
