  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for multiple sclerosis)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for muscle spasms)
  • Side effects
    Mild (excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence))
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 5 mg Three times daily
Advice & Tips: To avoid the daytime sleepiness, I take 5mg with breakfast (7am) and mid-afternoon (3pm). Starting today my doctor and I agreed I should also take 20mg after dinner. If that makes me sleepy overnight, there is no harm done. And that should help alleviate spasms at bedtime.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for multiple sclerosis)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for stiffness/spasticity)
  • Side effects
    Mild (fatigue)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Three times daily
Advice & Tips: It's not the first time I've taken Baclofen, but it has done wonders when taken daily. When I first took Baclofen, I made the mistake of not taking it everyday and I didn't get the benefits. Also, the side effect of tiredness didn't help. I'm not dealing with much of the side effects now and taking it every day really helps with spasticity. I still deal with some, but not nearly to the extent as I was.
