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!

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.

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.

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?
