Not an easy question: Soma (carisoprodol) - a muscle relaxant- and neurontin- an anti epileptic often used in neurological pain- can both cause sedation. This can be particularly hazardous when driving or simply walking (falls). Discuss this with your pain physician.

Metabolism issue: T add to dr. Williams' answer, how Neurontin (gabapentin) is broken down in the body varies a great deal between people. As a result, a given dose can result in no effect or too much sedation depending on the person.

Neurontin (gabapentin): Excess sedation at high dose of neurontin, (gabapentin) otherwise no adverse interaction.
