In brief: No, don't take Soma (carisoprodol).

By now, this problem has been resolved, but for the sake of other readers, you should not take something like Soma to try to offset the stimulation of extra adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine).
The double dose of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) probably will "feel" like too much>> maybe increased heart rate, possibly transient increase in blood pressure - but not to dangerous levels. Let the body metabolize the adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Don't complicate things.
