    Im getting off suboxone in a few months and I was wondering if something like flexeril or soma would help? also, are these drugs addictive? and do they effect gaba?

    I've never had either but I would assume it does. I've thought about it too. Gabapentin helped me out so much.

    Soma helps.. so does valium.

    The big things you want are..

    immodium
    any Benzo
    soma if you have it.
    clonadine if you have it or can get it...
    OR
    Enough opiates to do a proper taper so WD is not as uncomfortable and hellish

    Good luck

    No, muscle relaxants are not addictive. They also won't help opiate WD except for maybe a bit of the pain, spasms particularly.
