Reviews for Baclofen to treat Trigeminal Neuralgia

Baclofen reduces the chronic pain of trigeminal neuralgia to a great extent. For me, it mutes the pain to a tolerable level. It does not reduce my ability to think clearly, as occurred with the use of various anti-seizure medications, i.e. Trileptil, Dilantin, Neurontin, etc. For me, it does not yet appear to have a reduced effect despite taking it over a long period of time. The side-effects for me are relatively benign and, in some cases, interesting. Higher doses cause drowsiness. Lower doses include the following side effects, - Subtle muscle relaxation - Increased muscle tone - Surprising endurance and lack of fatigue at high-levels of physical activity - Absence of soreness following the aforementioned physical activity
