Brian has been on baclofen for a week now not sure if it is the drug or the fact he is constipated but his ability to stand has diminished to such a state that i have had to hoist him all day. He seems to be on his own planet as well. I even shouted at him in front of the morning carer because he wouldn't stand properly this morning.
when we saw the neuro people yesterday they said his weakness could be the drug (it can cause weakness) or it could be the fact that he is constipated which means he has got too much in his system. Also the said constipation can cause the psp symptoms to be worse. Stuck between a rock and a hard place at the moment. Whats best withdraw the baclofen reduce the dose or carry on regardless. Janexx
