  • Effectiveness
    Major (for stiffness/spasticity)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for multiple sclerosis)
  • 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.
