Baclofen Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

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.
