Has anyone even went off it and went on another drug?

    I haven't
    I believe some of the reason is that there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to the dosages

    Baclofen caused me to have more spasms, especially in my legs. I switched to Robaxin and it seems to work ok for me. Flexeril worked best, but, my body got used to it and lost it's punch.
