    My daugter was born with CP, she uses this drug as a muscle relaxant, at first it worked well to alleviate the tightness but then she started having seizures approximately 6 months into treatment. She's never had seizures since birth. My daughter is now 5, she was put on Baclofen arround age 3.

    My experience... this is a placebo. not good for pain, muscle aches, you name it. And I am not on a lot of other meds. Take Ultram 2-3 per day and lorcet 10 mg as needed for breakthrough pain. Have had broken ankle, writs, & diagnosed with arthritis in back and legs. I've tried to take this as prescribed for past 1 1/2 years. Just seems a waste to me.

    I take 10 mg 2x a day for muscles spasms in face, neck and legs due to fibromyalgia. I also take Keppra for nerve pain. It took about a month before things started to settle down. The baclofen makes me sleepy, but I still get more work done because I can concentrate better while not in major pain. I have had an increased appetite as well. Between these two medicines I feel almost human.
