Should I use added leavening with self rising flour

I'm going to make buttermilk biscuits. The recipe says to use self rising flour. It also says to use baking soda and baking powder. I'm confused I thought self rising flour already has leavening in it. Should I use baking soda and baking powder as the recipe says or should I omit both?

It does but not necessarily enough for the proper result. Try the recipe as written.

Had this same issue over the weekend. Added Baking Powder / and / Baking soda. Biscuits tasted great, but I STILL didn't get the rise I wanted....
