I am taking one 20 Mg capsule one hour before bed to alleviate muscle spasm due to multiple sclerosis. I was having involuntary muscle spasms in one lower leg that would lead to cramping when I was trying to go to sleep. I am on the smallest dose recommended and it has stopped the bad spasms for the most part. A side effect is my left foot seems to swell and it is not going away.

I have MS and baclofen works but not all the time, and I needed something to help me get moving because I am relatively young and my entire life has been affected by this disease, Dantrolene saved my life. Give it a try and stick with it the drowsiness goes away and you will feel like you are in the land of living again, just be sure to get reg liver test done by your doctor. Amazing drug and oldie but goodie per my doctor...

i am using this drug to treat spams after a severe stroke. it has been effective inasmuch that it has relaxed my muscles in order for me to be able to incorporate my limb to daily actvities. i am far from been cured. i've only used the drug for three weeks but i am confident that i i continue its use it will help me recover. although not guaranteed, i expect to be at 90-95% within one year.
