My 14 yr old daughter was just started on baclofen for Tourette's Syndrome but she is also border line psycitsophrenic(spelled wrong?) I've read that this medicine helps for both. Any suggestions??
Baclofen is indicated for muscle spasticity. It is a muscle relaxant. No, it is not considered a narcotic medicine and is not a controlled substance. I'm not sure how this would work for Tourettes or schizophrenia but if her Dr has suggested this medicine ask him to explain to you how this will work for her conditions. I have not ever heard of Baclofen being used for either condition.
