Is Baclofen (10mg) recognized as a controlled substance? Does it have a narcotic in it? Does it control pain?

No, it is classified as a muscle relaxant, so it does not contain a narcotic, according to FDA listings. It is used to treat the pain associated with muscle sprains, strains, and spasms.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?

No way, you will develop tolerance and get in trouble. Butrans is buphrenorpine an opioid/analgesic. Discuss with your Doctor.

Now i understand why, my dr.put me on the highest dosage (30 mg daily. Not only does it help the headaches but; other spinal injuries/ 3 disk surgeries. Spinal fusion okay, I'm done. Question, how can it not be considered form of narcotic since Percocet, Tylenol 3, Oxycontin, whatever! the same type of affect psychologically you why is this any different than the rest.; knocking you off your keister. definitely relaxing. Just curious to know what you think. taking too deep.unfortunately well?
