How useful is Baclofen
How useful is Baclofen to others? I was on it from before diagnosis, but it didn't really reduce spasms. My Neurologist then put me on to Quinine, but that didn't help either. I have now taken myself off both drugs (with the agreement of both GP & neurologist) and am on no medication apart from occasional Ibuprofen, which I find reduces my spasms more effectively than Baclofen ever did.
I deal with my spasms by relaxing and stretching out in bed (luckily I have a king size to myself) with my legs flat and supported, with an extra duvet to keep them warm if necessary. Much better than any drugs. I appreciate this will not work for all as my symptoms are milder than others, but I pass this on to see what others think.
How does the oncoming cold weather affect others? I find that the cold brings on spasms and causes me to lose balance, so I try to avoid being out on cold days.
