Hi what dose of baclofen have other found effective for chronic back pain. I'm currently on 30mg a day but its not giving me enough relief from the severe tightness and burning feeling in my back. My skin is also very hit to touch in the painful areas ( I can only describe it as though it is lactic acid).
Lactic acid build up would be from exercising to the point of oxygen decrease to muscles. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant. You are on a low dose. The recommended therapeutic level is 40 to 80mgs per day. May need to talk to the doctor and let him know of your symptoms.
I have found taking 20 mg. Three times a day helps alot to keep my muscles from tightening up & having spasms as bad.
I have actually been on this dosage for about 4yrs.
Best of luck, Kathy
