Baclofen Gait Disturbance Causes and Reviews


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms of MS. They can include

  • Visual disturbances
  • Muscle weakness
  • Trouble with coordination and balance
  • Sensations such as numbness, prickling, or "pins and needles"
  • Thinking and memory problems

No one knows what causes MS. It may be an autoimmune disease, which happens when your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Multiple sclerosis affects women more than men. It often begins between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually, the disease is mild, but some people lose the ability to write, speak, or walk.

There is no single test for MS. Doctors use a medical history, physical exam, neurological exam, MRI, and other tests to diagnose it. There is no cure for MS, but medicines may slow it down and help control symptoms. Physical and occupational therapy may also help.

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.

Fri, 03 May 2013

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.
