Muscle tightness

I want to recommend something to my doctor about my constant muscle tightness .. It is almost 24/7.. Any recommendations. I am on 20mg oxycotin 2 times a day and 20 mg baclofen 4 times a day.. Also 50 mg diclofenac 2 times a day. 100 mg lyrica 3 times a day.


  • Baclofen is a musle relaxer used to treat spasticity.......you are on a moderate dose so, you may want to ask him about a different one if you are finding that it isn't helping....but remember, do not just stop taking baclofen, you have to reduce the dosage slowly, over time, just as you did when you went on it........baclofen is one of those medications that can't be abruptly stopped.
  • wants me on lyrica, the número surgeon thinks I should try or be on neurotin. I can change doctors change and change medicines but it takes time.
