Depends: On whether they test for it. In some areas where abuse of carisoprodol is common (and it is one of the drugs that are "pushed" in pill mills (together with alprazolam/xanax) along with opioids. On routine 7 or 10 panel tests that look for opiates, benzos, cocaine, amphetamine, marijuana, barbiturates, PCP etc) it is NOT tested for. It is, however, a highly abusable and dangerous drug. ...Read more
Not likely: Soma (carisoprodol) is not specifically tested for. However, I wonder about the motivation of this question. Soma (carisoprodol) can be mis-used.

Don't become dependent on a medication. ...Read more

Depends on the test: Do they test for soma (carisoprodol) now? That isn't in the standard panels but then, soma (carisoprodol) is only recently classed as a controlled substance. This sounds like you've been completely out of soma (carisoprodol) for 24 hrs or less. Varies with the individual but generally soma (carisoprodol) would still be in urine for at least 2 days. Don't overly flush the system with water/caffeine. ...Read more

Ask your doctor: If you are consistently taking your prescribed medications on schedule, the urine Tox screen should pick up, but if you are giving away or selling your drugs, the screen does reveal Diversion. Since this can get complex VERY fast, you'd best have a conversation with your doctor. ...Read more

Varies: Really, based on size and weight, but usual dose is 350 mg every 8 hrs. More likely than not, some tolerance will occur if slow increase of dose, but likely significant side effects if sudden doubling of dosage.
