Can you snort a muscle relaxer?

Not Medical Advice: Take the pills as prescribed!

There are medications that are simply not designed for nasal insufflation (snorting) and those include muscle relaxants [Carisoprodol (Soma), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril), Diazepam (Valium)].

Muscle relaxants come in tablet form and are intended to be administered orally.

Your oral medication can be swallowed, chewed or placed under your tongue to dissolve (these drugs are not snorted).

Nasal insufflation of drugs not made to be sniffed is unwise to say the least. Save your nose from the possible risk of mucus membrane damage.

Tip! To get maximum benefit from your medications, it is important to take them exactly as prescribed by your doctor. In fact, your chance of a better health outcome improves when you take your medications as directed.
