Advice & Tips: I was on Baclofen for a year and a half. I didn't think it was working and I wanted to started eliminating some of the prescriptions I'm on so over a month, i weaned myself off of it. Within 3 days, horrendous lag and calf cramps started, severe enough to wake me up in the middle of the night. I tried tonic water, increased my stretching - all to no avail. At my next neurologist's appointment, I got a new prescription and within 2 days the cramps were reduced to manageable.
