Baclofen Cardiac Arrest Causes and Reviews


The heart has an internal electrical system that controls the rhythm of the heartbeat. Problems can cause abnormal heart rhythms, called arrhythmias. There are many types of arrhythmia. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or it can stop beating. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart develops an arrhythmia that causes it to stop beating. This is different than a heart attack, where the heart usually continues to beat but blood flow to the heart is blocked.

There are many possible causes of SCA. They include coronary heart disease, physical stress, and some inherited disorders. Sometimes there is no known cause for the SCA.

Without medical attention, the person will die within a few minutes. People are less likely to die if they have early defibrillation. Defibrillation sends an electric shock to restore the heart rhythm to normal. You should give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a person having SCA until defibrillation can be done.

If you have had an SCA, an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) reduces the chance of dying from a second SCA.

I just want anyone to answer my damn question is this site bogus cause i think its a fairly fucking easy question.i thought this is what is supposed to be done here

Tue, 08 Nov 2011

I too had a nasty bite from Baclofen.I had a craving for alcohol and was on 10 mg TID.I took 90mg at once. within one hour I feel like i was on shrooms! Very vivid CEVs(closed eyed visuals) and some ope eyed visuals(OEVs).Actually I enjoyed this.But there was moments of short anxiety.It was over in 6 hours maybe 8.I feel Baclofen has abuse potentials is some people and should be scheduled.It has a wide range of side effect and can be addictive. Kids use it for tripping or sedation.Baclofen is related to GHB and Phenethylamies(eg.Mecaline,2c-type drugs).Very dangerous in excess esp when starting it and for some withwardwal effects too. Be careful with it.Not suitable for alchoholics with history of Hallucinogen ause-like me. Im off this med now.

Can a DR, pharmacist(who knows what they're talking about) or patient, please tell me what the best most effective generic brand of Baclofen is. I've been on it for a yr+ via Walgreens CVS I've ONLY had access to Northstar, Teva I think 1x the Upsher-Smith brand. I've usually been getting 20mgx90 this mth I got 10mgx180 got Teva, I know that Watson, Qualitest, Mylan, Caraco, Lannett, Matrix make generic Baclofen too. I have to think 1 of them. probably Watson or Lannett, makes a superior product. I know not all generics are equal nor as effective. For ex...I'm also on Valium- Mylan makes the WORST diazepam ever, while Teva is ok Watson is by far the best. Thank you! I just want my Baclofen to be the most effective.
