    I have been using Baclofen for over 25 years . I got up to 6 a day, but have reduced it to 1am and 1 pm. Am also on Gabapentin 3 800 mg per day. They do help but I think they make me sleepy. I am still able to walk around the house and up the garden with my stick. My attitude is I am not going in a wheelchair I want to keep my independece as long as possible. Lyn

    I WAS using Baclophen I was prescribed 2/day It made me very dizzy. Neuro lowered it to 1/day. I would still get spasms. Now I take Skelaxin and also Magnesium supplement

    I do. I originally received it for painful trigeminal neuralgia spasms. Now I use it for generalized muscle spasms. It helps.
