Baclofen Disorientation Causes and Reviews


Have you ever felt dizzy, lightheaded, or as if the room is spinning around you? If the feeling happens often, it could be a sign of a balance problem. Balance problems can make you feel unsteady. You may also have blurred vision, confusion, and Disorientation. They are one cause of falls and fall-related injuries, such as a hip fracture.

Some balance problems are due to problems in the inner ear. Others may involve another part of the body, such as the brain or the heart. Aging, infections, head injury, certain medicines, or problems with blood circulation may also cause balance problems.

It is important to see your doctor about balance problems. They can be a sign of other health problems, such as an ear infection or a stroke. Your doctor may send you to a specialist for a diagnosis. You may need a hearing test, blood tests, or imaging studies of your head and brain. Other possible tests look at your eye movements, and how your body responds to movement.

In some cases, treating the illness that is causing the disorder will help with the balance problem. Exercises, a change in diet, and some medicines also can help.

Baclofen Disorientation Reviews

Wed, 17 Aug 2011
I had a devastating experience with this drug. I had been using Flexeril for back and neck pain but found it no longer as effective. I asked my doctor if there was something stronger. He prescribed Baclofen. Having not read the label carefully, my problems began immediately. Day one, a deep sleep that I could not be aroused from. Day 2, total confusion and terrible hallucinations, severe Disorientation. By day 3, I was so out of it, I was not sure where I was, who I was or if my family around were real or not. By the morning of the 4th day, I was taken by ambulance to the local ER and later admitted to the hospital. The first night was total hell. The distortion and multiple hallucinaitons kept me completely out of reality. Next day a little improvement in the mornings but afternoon, evenings were hell again. Panic attacks were massive. My skin crawled, burned; my sense of temperatures were gone. Could not eat for days. This all started 8/11/11 and it is now 8/16/11 and I have spent a fair day. But evenings still bring up panic. I will be seeking psychological help in this issue. If you or anyone is perscirbed this medication, be VERY cautious. I only used it 3 days to be sent completely out of mind!
