Pain meds: Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant, Percocet is a pain killer, they are both sedating, you can take them one after another but don't drive or operate machinery and don't drink alcohol.

Percocet & Soma (carisoprodol): Percocet is a narcotic pain killer. Soma (carisoprodol) is known as muscle relaxer. It is safe to take them several hours apart. Both have great addiction potential.
