Sep 10, 1999 (Started Aug 17, 1995)

  • Effectiveness
    None (for stiffness/spasticity)
  • Side effects
    Severe (itching, cotton mouth)
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 32 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I haven't used Baclofen since the mid/late 1990's. It's effects were instant but the benefits were extremely short lived. In what seemed to be lightening speed, I needed the maximum dosage to control my spasticity. Very quickly this level of medication proved to be absolutely useless.
