  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It gave me sudden periods of intense sleepiness. I was unsafe driving and twice needed the wake up bumps on the side of the road to make it home from work in the afternoon/early evening after taking baclofen the night before. The drowsiness hit in waves from mid morning on through the day, and baclofen was the only change in my meds/routine.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: i ended up taking 20mg 4x daily for spasticity and clonus. it wasnt enough. I have spasticity throughout my entire body but legs were worst. I relied on some of it to stand or walk, but it didnt help having such stiffness. So now have the pump. I have a UTI, so some stiffness has returned, but only take 10mg at night. it will cause fatigue when you first start taking it, but follow your prescription and stay on it, your body will become used to it and you wont have the fatigue.
Side effects: Fatigue, Fatigue

Advice & Tips: I felt fatigue at first, just kept taking it as scheduled, and my body got used to it, so fatigue went away it helps loosen my body up as i have spasticity all over. can definitely tell when i forget a dose, i get stiff all over again.
Side effects: Fatigue, Fatigue
