How Do You Take Your Baclofen?

How Do You Take Your Baclofen?

I was told I could take Baclofen as needed, but start at 1/2 a pill at night. If you take Baclofen-do you take it as needed, or do you have to take it every day to see it work? I am starting it tonight.

I was in hospital with relapse, dr suggested flexerol said better for liver and more effective. So I dropped back often and started that . So far so good

Good answer JanetSimmons: Your right to not take more Baclphin than is needed. Now you know how Much you can take if you had to but my Neurologist told me for a 160 lb. man take no more than 125 mg/d and break that down into 4 doses per day. I take 100 mg/day, split into 25 mg/dose 4 times/ day. I hope all goes well for you "MS Gets on my Nerves"! Baclphin's reduction of Spasticity for me is wounderful, because without it I get "toe curl", Stiff muscles and spastic muscles in my legs and chest. Thank Lord Jesus for modern medicine!!! @Timbofrog

I was on the maximum oral dose of baclofen and still had spasticity. After fighting it for a few years, I finally agreed to the pump. I didn't realize the side effects that the oral meds gave me. It takes a tiny dose compared to what I was on. Takes a few months and adjustments to get just the right dose. So glad I finally did it!

I am a healthcare practitioner. I am very familiar with the use of baclofen. It affects GABA receptors. Which eventually can become resistant. But many years down the line with this drug. Using it as needed is appropriate. For spasticity. I am using gabapentin for my spasticity.
