baclofen for anxiety
8 Replies RSS
although been away, sort of from addiction to substances for a few years,suffer from dreadful anxiety.has anyone ever successfully turned their lives around as far as anxiety is concerned with this drug,please?! ## What has your doctor advised you to use? Baclofen can have some calming effects, but it is really a muscle relaxant, so it isn't likely to completely treat anxiety. ## hi thanks for reply,psychiatrist is a leading doctor in the treatment of addiction/anxiety,and is taking me up to a 100mg a day,he professed to having had large successes in anxiety reduction in the use of this drug.have seen many stories of people going to much higher doses,where they reach a 'switch off' point for all addictions. it was a book, The End of My Addiction | Olivier Ameisen, MD, that s...

does baclofen make you really sleepy the next day
3 Replies RSS
I have only been taking Baclofen for about a week at a really low dose (10-15 mg. a day). I've been experiencing really disturbing "nods" while driving. I mean like, checking out, suddenly, unable to not drift off. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Beth! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. That is listed as a known side effect of this medication in some people that take it, that's usually why you're advised not to drive, until you see how it affects you, so you won't be nodding off or getting dizzy while driving. Other side effects as listed by the FDA may possibly include nausea, headache and dry mouth. It may be best to speak to your doctor about trying a different muscle relaxant. Is there anything else I can hel...

drug that interact with grapefruit
3 Replies RSS
I am on several medications and trying to see if grapefruit is going to interact with any of them I'm not very good at using the web so was looking for some help. I am on baclofen, clonazepam, gabapentin, morphine sulfate, omeprazole, oxybutynin, tizanidine, trazadone, and enoxaparin. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Hello, Moe! How are you? Yes, grapefruit can interact with Trazodone and Oxybutynin by increasing how much of them you absorb. This could cause you to experience more side effects, than usual, which may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and blurry vision. It would be best to be cautious and only indulge in grapefruit, if your medical provider approves. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How longer will grape juice shows its effects on oxy...

Baclofen's rate of excretion
1 Reply RSS
I took 10 mg of baclofen last night about 10 pm (Wednesday) and was wondering how long it remains in your system? I just started taking it on Tuesday evening. ## Hi Louise, I'm seeing the half life of Baclofen at about 3 hours, meaning if you took a 10 mg dose, your body should fully metabolize it in less than 2 days. There's a helpful chart you can take a look at along with a big list of many other drugs and their half lives on this site. Baclofen 10 mg (Half Life Calculator) Hope this helps!

muscle relaxers identification
1 Reply RSS
My dad has a pills for muscle relaxers but I'm not sure if someone replaced his pills. I'm really concerned. The pill has LCI and numbers 133. And its in a bottle named BACLOFEN 10 my tab. ## Hi Tina, I don't know if you accidentally forgot the '0' at the end, but the correct imprint for Baclofen 10mg should read "LCI 1330". It's a round white pill with "LCI" sitting above a score line and "1330" is underneath. For verification, this pill carries a National Drug Code of 00527-1330 and is a product of Lannett Co. Inc. Also, Baclofen is a muscle relaxer indicated for use in treating muscle spasms and pain. I hope this helps!

baclofen withdrawals
7 Replies RSS
I have been taking 80mg of baclofen a day for the past month now. I started it October 2nd 2013-November 4th 2013. I have now been going through withdrawals from the medication for 5 days now and was curious if it will be over with very soon? I ask this because i haven't been on it long but am not sure how long this withdrawal feeling will last. I am feeling the mental withdrawal and the muscle issues at this point now. Can someone please help me out with when I will or should be getting back to normal mentally and physically? ## Hello, Steph! How are you feeling? It's difficult to say, since everyone is different. That was a pretty high dosage, so what you're experiencing are most likely rebound effects from stopping it abruptly, this isn't a medication known to cause w...

Shelf life of Baclofen
2 Replies RSS
My son takes Baclofen for muscle spasms. He was feeling much better and quit taking it. He recently started getting the spasms again and my question is what is the shelf life for this med. I have some left over from the last time he used it and was wondering if it is still good. Being Easter weekend there are no doctors open to get a refill. ## If it is in a pharmacy dispensed bottle, which exposes it to heat, light, moisture and etc. then the expiration date is one year from whenever it was dispensed. It doesn't get dangerous past the expiration date, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did when it was new. Is there anything else I can help with? ## But I use to take them but I stop for a while and the bottle said discard after 2013. So I'm...

baclofen side effects
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed Baclofen to help with my alcoholism, ramping up to 5 per day. It made me drowsy - I literally fell asleep with a fork in my mouth. I could not walk a straight line, swerving when I tried. And my favorite - I peed the bed three times. I already can do these things when I'm drunk. ## Hello, Boz! How are you doing? It may be that you're on too high of a dose for your body. Dizziness, drowsiness, headache, and dry mouth can all be normal side effects of this medication, as reported by the FDA, and the higher the dosage, the more severe they would be. Have you informed your prescriber? A lower dosage might work better for you and not cause such awful side effects.

baclofen vs soma
4 Replies RSS
I have been takeing soma for muscle spasms for a while know. Another doctor wanted me to try Baclofen 20mg. I found that the Baclofen made me feel a little strange and dopey. The Soma does not. I do like to take the Baclofen at night instead of Soma as it makes me very sleepy and does help me sleep better and longer. I like the Soma for dureing the day because it does not make me sleepy and can function better. When my body feels tired I experience more pain and spasm,hence the Baclofen when need to sleep. Hope this helps ## It is normal for medications to work differently, for different people. Sometimes, when your doctor wants you to try something different, you have to give it a go, for a few weeks and then just let them know if it has bad effects or doesn't work as well for you....
