Baclofen Mental Status Changes Causes and Reviews


Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia among older people. Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities.

AD begins slowly. It first involves the parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. People with AD may have trouble remembering things that happened recently or names of people they know. A related problem, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), causes more memory problems than normal for people of the same age. Many, but not all, people with MCI will develop AD.

In AD, over time, symptoms get worse. People may not recognize family members. They may have trouble speaking, reading or writing. They may forget how to brush their teeth or comb their hair. Later on, they may become anxious or aggressive, or wander away from home. Eventually, they need total care. This can cause great stress for family members who must care for them.

AD usually begins after age 60. The risk goes up as you get older. Your risk is also higher if a family member has had the disease.

No treatment can stop the disease. However, some drugs may help keep symptoms from getting worse for a limited time.

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.
