Reviews for Baclofen

tom rek · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 12, 2014

“Had abdominal surgery Sept 23rd 2013. Developed intractable hiccups immediately afterward. Unable to resolve them. After 2 months went on Baclofen 20 mg every 6 hours, they stopped , have now tapered back to 20mg every 12 hours, still under control, and will cut dose again. This is the only medicine that worked.”

“Had hiccups 10 times an hour; often to the point of hindering breathing. Lasted two days before I sought med help. Nurse practitioner prescriber baclofen. Two pills and it was gone. 10 mg. Amazing. I have most of the prescription left, which I will keep.”

HateHiccups · Taken for 1 to 6 months November 22, 2020

“Have had intractable hiccups for month 24/7 which generally culminate into vomiting in late evenings. Tried gabapentin - no effect. Tried reglan - also no effect. Finally baclofen 20-30 mg every 6 hours did the trick. Initial Rx was for 10 my every 8 hours but that low a dose did nothing. 80mg per day made life tolerable and minimized the hiccups Altho I can still feel them lurking just under surface.”

“Chronic hiccups. Idiopathic. Failed gabapentin, Lycra, chlorpromazine. Responded initially to 20 mg twice a day. However to maintain effect have needed to increase to four times a day a dosing. It definitely works but doses higher than 100 mg create insomnia. Wish there was a longer acting version but it is a very inexpensive medication.”

“Had unbearable hiccups for a week straight due to severe acid reflux. It was so bad that I was getting maybe 2 hour a sleep a night. Went to see my gastro and he prescribed balcofen 5mgs (3 x Daily). It took about 6 hours to kick in and I had to double up my dose (10mg) but the hiccups finally have subsided. Thank goodness for this medication because having recurring hiccups for a week straight was miserable.”

Lioresal (baclofen): “We tried it for my dad when he was having non-stop hiccups for weeks after having TIA. It definitely worked when he used the medication. It's a lot of help indeed.”

“I had hiccups continuously for 5 days due to antibiotics used for fever. Lot of medicines used but in vein. Ultimately only one baclofen 10 mg tablet was the cure for my hiccups, and they stopped”
