My neurologist recently recommended that I begin taking baclofen to help treat pain and stiffness in my legs. I generally do not like taking any medications unless absolutely necessary, and am very interested in learning the experiences others have had with taking baclofen. I know that this has been discussed in this forum before, but many of those posts are from years back, and I feel that it is worthwhile to ask again.
How long have you been/were you taking baclofen? What dosage(s)? Did you experience any side effects from taking the drug? Did you have to increase dosage after a period of time? Would you recommend baclofen to a friend or family member with AMN, or would you suggest something else to treat pain/spasticity (massage, stretching exercises, other medication)?
Thank you very much for your assistance. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
