have run out of my ritalin (it seems i am never prescribed the right amount). so my back was hurting and i hadnothing to take but my baclofen scrip from two! years ago. i have had such severe fatigue that, when i get out of bed, i walk bent over like a very old lady, it seems like my spine doesn't have the strength to support me. so i got this wonder drug. ritalin, after having severe fatigue since 2003 and what a wonderful rush of energy! but still don't have the doseage right yet, hence i'm out sooner than i should be. SO... i've been taking 2 10mg baclofen 3x/day and my back supports me again! it is amazing. i have energy again, without the ritalin. i now wonder if, all this time, my back was in spasm and that was the reason for my fatigue? don't get me wrong, it took me a long time to get something like ritalin just for my fatigue, so i'm not gonna give it up yet...but if baclofen works right now then i will stockpile my ritalin for a rainy flare-up.
maybe this post will help someone else...2 years ago, the baclofen didn't work but just last week it works...so maybe you need to find the right doseage.
