Muscle Spasms (not sure where to put this!)

Postby Lyssie » Thu Jan 19, 2012 5:22 pm

I have damage to the nerves and muscles in my legs from my spinal ops so I have severe muscle spasms. Dr has prescribed Baclofen and was wondering if anyone else was on this too? I'm only on a low dose for the first 6 weeks (10mg 3X daily). What have other found with this medication?

I'm in a lot of pain lately arrgh /moan lol :D Lyssie xx

hi. i was on baclofen, for a few months, about a year ago. i found that besides feeling stoned it didn't do much for me. i am currently taking tizanidine and it has helped a lot. it has helped relax major muscle spasms and has stopped the sharp jerks i used to have almost continuously in my limbs. i take it in combination with diazepam.

Thanks for the reply Adele :-)

I am doing well on it so far. Muscle spasms are reduced a bit but I've not been on it long so I'm sure it's got a bit more 'working' to do :roll:

Fingers crossed eh!
