Excuse my ignorance, is this a pump that automaticly induces pain medicine? Im struggling with pills and am looking for an alternative to manage my chronic pain.  Let me know how this works out for you.

Of course the Dr. can best answer your question.......but......from my experience......it seems your body simply built up a resistance to Baclofen.......and no longer responds the way it did when you first started the treatment. There are many, many muscle relaxants to choose from........many won't come in patch form.........what does your own Dr. say ?You also don't mention ........what complications you started having.......that also might be key in determining what's best for you. I'll be curious what the good Dr. says........my best of luck to you in your search...........peace and love.......Norma
