I've taken baclofen in the past (not been on it for long while), and while it helped a bit, but it did make me feel weak and tired. The most recent I've taken the generic of zenaflex, which is tizanadine and that helped quite a bit. Once I felt I could back down on that I did, and I'm on nothing now.
Perhaps a change in meds will help. The spasms are painful, and maybe a good re-eval is needed to see if the doc can get the right combo for you.
It's hard to balance a tolerable amount of meds (that don't increase fatigue/weakness) but provide some relief. Such a juggling act.
Last trip in to neuro, he didn't want to rx much with no dx. He's supposed to be among the best around, but I tell you, I'm about fed up with him and his office. I think I asked about Baclofen, among other things.
More than once in the past I've had flexeril, which I like too much, but it makes me very sleepy, and it seems to linger in my system for a day or mnore after just one dose.
