In brief: Should be okay

Both medications can be sedating, so be careful about driving and balance problems, but they are often taken together.

In brief: Soma / neurontin (gabapentin)

It should be safe to take these two medicines together. It may depend on the dose and any other medications you might use.
Some people may feel these cause them to become sleepy, be careful if you take them before driving.

In brief: Not big problem

But do NOT understand the role of Soma here as this is a muscle relaxant with some addictive qualities, and has no effect upon "nerve pain".
Neurontin (gabapentin) is useful and has few drug-drug interactions. These issues can get complex. Consider a Concierge visit to clarify further.
