“I've had MS for 25 years and suffer more with fatigue than anything else, but at night when I was over tired I would get twitchy and had terrible restless legs. I now take 10mg of baclofen each night and sleep soundly. I wake up feeling refreshed, something that I've not felt for a very long time so I recommend this medication.”

“After several years of treatment with ropinarole with decreasing effectiveness I started taking baclofen about 5 months ago. The results were dramatic. I am not bothered by evening symptoms at all. And it doesn’t make me sleepy!”

“Was given baclofen at 10mg 3Xs day for muscle spasms and it caused severe restless leg syndrome to start out within the 1st hour of taking them. It is causing me to have to switch from taking restless leg meds at night to having to take 1/2 hr (30 mins) prior to taking Baclofen, thus becoming unable to drive at all.”

“This medication didn't agree with me. Dr had me on it to see if it help my plm and restless legs. Didn't help with my symptoms plus it made me unbearably drowsy to the point I fell asleep on the toilet in middle of nighttime. At the same time I never felt as if I were sleeping well. I wanted off of them quickly.”

“I'm noticing a great deal of help from pain and muscle spasms. I have been trying to get my back pain under control. Baclofen has been the best thing I have ever done. Has anyone else had good results for back pain?”

Lioresal (baclofen): “On baclofen for severe pain in arms and legs. Very effective for that disorder. Must take exactly on time or pain returns right away. Side effects are headache, diarrhea and tiredness.”

“I have very bad Restless Leg Syndrome. I take 30mg @ bedtime, and normally the Baclofen helps pretty well with keeping my legs under control.”
