  • My Dr. prescribed Baclofen for me 1-3 months post surgery. When 10 didn't help, he upped it to 20 mg tid. He swore it would help. It made me sick to my stomach and did not help with the pain or spasms. And, my understanding was that it was to help with the spasms, not pain.
  • Baclofen is for muscle spasms and is also an anti spastic drug. It is not for pain. Most commonly used for MS patients, but can be used as the MD sees fit. I tried baclofen too, but it made me feel weird, so I quit. If you take if for any length of time and want to quit, do it slowly over a period of days or weeks. Do not stop suddenly, you could have problems. I was switched to Tizanidine after Flexeril proved ineffective. It is also used a lot in MS patients. It took me a while to get used to it, but it works better than the Flexeril did.
    I have been a Senior Lead Pharmacy Tech and Purchasing Agent for the Pharmacy Industry for the past 30 years, but the information I am giving you is right out of the drug information you can look up on the internet! :H Good Luck!
