Baclofen Fall Reviews

Tue, 01 Feb 2011
Husbnd is a 15 yr. stroke survivor who had a Baclofen pump since about 2001. It was replaced Nov. 2009 and nothing but trouble... passing out, weakness, Falling, etc. 4 ER trips and not one dr. ever mentioned Baclofen side effect. Pump was removed Jan. 2010 and then he went into withdrawal.. another ER trip w/symptoms like a stroke. Baclofen dissolved the enamel on his teeth and had to have all of them pulled amp; dentures, a very expensive experience. With the help of VA neurologist we're getting him off Baclofen.. using Young Living RutaVaLa to conttol the spasms and have him down to less than 5 mg. oral per day. Baclofen is a very dangerous medication!
