Baclofen & incontinence

Trying to ween myself off Baclofen and noticed persistent incontinence is starting to subside. Anyone else experience this? ## I didn’t put the two together until I switched spasm meds and got the first time in years I didn’t have any issues. Unfortunately I was allergic and am back on baclofen, and it’s a problem again. ## The FDA lists increased urination, and urinary incontinence as being common side effects of Baclofen, along with nausea, drowsiness, and abdominal pain. Ref: Baclofen Information A common side effect is considered to be one that has been known to occur in more than 1%, and no more than 10%, of the people that have tried the medication. How are you doing, now? Are you seeing continued improvement? ## thanks for asking. actually, weening down Baclofen...

Baclofen Suspension

I am a case manager and I have a young quadraplegic with a g-tube that needs Baclofen suspension. does anyone know where I might be able to get this for him? ## Actually, your pharmacy or the small pharmacies that do compounds should be able to mix it up. Do you have any hospitals in your area that has outpatient pharmacies? This is your best bet. If your pharmacist is leary to do it have him go to as this website gives him step by step instructions on how to mix the compounds. ## That is correct, if a regular pharmacy doesn't carry it in a suspension form, any compounding pharmacy should be able to fill the prescription for you. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant, and the FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, constipation, h...

Baclofen and Vicodin Okay?

Can you take this muscle relaxer with a pain pill? A Vicodin 5/500? ## Sure no problem if you want to get really messed up. ## Yes you can take Baclofen with Vicodin. I take Baclofen with Norco 10/325. Have been on this cocktail of these two meds for quiet sometime now. May make you a little drowsy at first but once your system gets used to it there is no problem. Hope this helps, God Bless, and you will be in my prayers. I am on these due to a spinal birth defect from birth. ## These medications are often prescribed together to treat pain, and the muscle spasms that can contribute to pain. However, they should only be taken together with a doctor's approval, and under a doctor's regular supervision of the patient, because both of them can cause depression of the central nervous...

is baclofen as strong soma

I start a new muscle relaxer tonight called Baclofen. I'd been taking Soma fit years and it's just not helping with the terrible spasms anymore. I'm hoping the Baclofen does the trick. Does anyone know if it's stronger than Soma? I hate taking new meds. I'll make my husband stay up awhile to make sure I don't have a bad reaction. ## Hello, Donna! How are you? No, it is not as strong as Soma. Soma is actually the strongest muscle relaxant available. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Baclofen as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Have you taken it, yet? If so, did you experience any problems? ## Hi Donna, how's it going? I take High-Dose Baclofen (currently 150mg a day titrating up to 350mg a day) for alcoholism. I do get some...

Also the difference of Thc form taken by mouth COMPARED TO marajuna and can this be detected in urine sample. ## Was taken for reason of non narcotic muscles spams.

Baclofen - controlled substance?

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? ## I want to know if Baclofen is a controlled substance and if it is, then what class is it in? ## Ok now let me ask you about butrans pain patch can I take hydrocodone and robaxin with it? ## 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.p...

Baclofen 20, Ketoprofen 150, Lidocaine 50 Cream

Can anyone tell me the prescription trade name for a cream containing baclofen 20 mg, ketoprofen 150(?), and lidocaine 50 mg? ## From my own investigation, pain creams that contain these types of ingredients are formulated in compound pharmacies and therefore do not have a trade name like many other topical prescriptions. These are just generic topical formulas that can vary in ingredients with anything from what's listed below, to other combinations that I have not included here: -Baclofen, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen, Cyclobenzaprine, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine -Baclofen Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine, Dicyclomine -Ketoprofen, Gabapentin, Lidocaine, Amitriptyline Hope this helps! ## My compounding pharmacy calls it Baclo-Keto-Lido 2/10...

small round white pill with NO28

Found a small round white pill that has a score on one side and the other side says NO28. What is it? ## Is there any chance that the imprint says N029 as opposed to N028? I located a round white pill with N029 on one side and scored on the back (just as you described) to be identified as Baclofen 10 mg; which is prescribed as a skeletal muscle relaxant. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Northstar Rx LLC. and the size of the pill is approx. 8.00 mm. I hope this helps! ## I found the exact same pill and I can't find out what it is. If you find out please tell me. I found it in my car and am really worried about it.

I have DDD, scoliosis, which is serious, have herniations and bulging discs in cervical spine and also in lumbar spine. I can't walk without cane. I went to doc today and she gave me a small dose of baclofen,5 mg bid. Will this help my pain? I am taking generic oxycodone 30 mg every 4-6 hours as needed. I used to take oxycontin 20 mg, up to 5 times a day, it worked very well, but I can't take this now, because my medicare will not pay for it. ## Baclofen is a muscle relaxant.

A friend of a friend gave me some Amitrip/Baclofen/Keto/Lido/Pregab ointment to try for severe osteoarthritis hip pain and it’s been a lifesaver. The topical ointment just gives ingredients but no percentage of each. Any help with suggested percentages for the ointment mix would be appreciated.

does balcolfen really work for spasms?

I have major spasms and he gave me balcofen. Its not helping ## Hello, Berry! How are you? Baclofen is a muscle relaxant that can help with muscle spasms, but not every medication works for everyone that tries it. Have you informed your doctor? They may need to prescribe something else. The FDA lists the typical side effects of most muscle relaxants as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No...ask for flexiril or zanaflex. somas are great too but most doctor wont writr a script for them. ## Try Donatal, it really helped me.

baclofen vs soma

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....

Baclofen and Delayed Period

I recently started taking 10 mg of Baclofen twice a day. My period was almost 3 days late and I'm usually very regular. I was just curious if delayed periods were a side effect of this pill? ## Many medications can cause menstrual irregularities, according to NIH reports, but there is also a chance that it was caused by something else, such as the issue you were taking the medication to treat, or some other issue, stress, or another medication. Are you on any other medications? ## If you normally have intense cramping before menstruation to bring it about, I'd say yes, it is possible. Refusing muscle spasms could be slowing the rate at which your uterus can expel it's lining. I'd definitely ask your doctor or ob/gyn.

Shelf life of Baclofen

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...

Taking Baclofen and Soma together

Is it safe to take Baclofen and Soma together? I have not done it yet so I'm a little leery, but I hurt all over due to an automobile accident. ## No, these are both muscle relaxants, so you would be doubling up, which might result in overdose toxicity. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Have they both been prescribed for you? What type of injuries did you suffer? ## Was curious..i was just prescribed baclofen recently by neurologist. Been on soma for years & works great.
