Comment:

The first day I could feel some fingers again. I cried I was so happy. I could scream at my old doctor for not prescribing this drug to me previously. I am hopeful that with longer use of Baclofen I can regain full control of my limbs. I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Injured my spine in an auto accident. Suffered since for over 4 years with spasms, etc, with only being given Soma for it along with pain meds. Then they finally gave me oral baclofen.

Comment:
I have been taking Baclofen for several years to treat spasms in my back caused spinal tumors(Ependymoma). I was taking 10mg three times daily for the first year but was still experiencing severe spasms. I talked to my doctor and I had my dose increased to 20mg three times daily and received significant relief. I only wish I would have increased the dose sooner.
