I have had 7 back surgeries and have been on every type of drug except Baclafin.What i read on it sounded dangerous.I was on 3 80mg of oxy a day but reading on the Baclafin worries me.I already take enough prescribed drugs to kill someone so I don't want to go over the edge..
hi sammy jack, & welcome to the site.! Looks like you have been thru the milll so aas to speak. Am so sorry for all your troubles. I am laeary of you adding baclofen also. I was in the hospital & they tried it on me & I reacted very badly on it. I have another DC friend who is on it & she been crazy sick since she started it & don't think she has realized it could be the baclofen. Puckiemull asked me to step in here & try to help as she kinows I've also been thru the mill! The doctors say it can help some people, I take flexeril personally for the muscle spasms & it does a much better job. Aso are you on any Vitamin C? I have muscle spasms in my legs & feet at night if I don't take at least 2000 mg of Vit C during the day. This is in excess of any your drink with OF etc... Give it a try. On the backlofen, I don't know how to tell you to maybe try just a bit of it & see, but it scares me especially if added to the pain pump.
As far as that goes, can't they start to ween the amount of give you drugs by the pain pump & start giving it by mouth to see if that would wouk. Or can they try a spinal chord stimulator? Ask about it, Suppose to replace pain pumps. I don't have a pain pump , but they want to implant a spinal chord timulator & told me they can control "all" my pain issuses depending on where they put it. So may be worth a try too. Wouldn't that be wonderfyul? no pain pump, no pills etc... just a controller that you operate your self? Ask your docs about it & watch out for baclofen. Sorry it took me so long to respond, I have been iIl along with my husband, & couldn't find you at first! Hope you feel better, but get the Vit cC& take it too.It can't hurt & may help. Talk to your neruosurgeon about the spinal chord stimluator too. Let me know how it is going for you. Am very concerned...
