Baclofe n

Some leg and and arm muscles cramp up and I have been prescribed Baclofen.
Does Baclofen affect the normally functioning muscles and make them weaker ?


I found that I had to start on a very low dose and build the amount up very slowly.
Hope this helps

“If the dose is too high, muscles can become weak so it’s important to get the balance right between reducing stiffness and not reducing strength in your muscles.”

Thanks for replies re Baclofen - guess it’s a case of starting with a low dose and monitoring things.

I find magnesium dampens down spasm/cramp and might be worth trying.

Hi, yes it does. It caused me to have many falls. Please monitor your dose very carefully.
