Baclofen Drug Information

Baclofen (Lioresal®, Gablofen®) is a prescription medication approved to treat spasticity. The tablet form is approved for treating spasticity due to multiple sclerosis (MS) or spinal cord injuries or diseases. The injectable version (which is used in a pump that delivers the medication directly to the spinal cord) is approved to treat severe spasticity due to various causes, including MS, spinal cord injuries or diseases, or cerebral palsy. However, because baclofen is not suitable for everyone, make sure to review the prescribing drug information on baclofen before starting treatment.
 
Although some people do not experience problems with this drug, baclofen can cause side effects. Some of the common side effects include drowsiness, weakness, and dizziness. Before starting treatment, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have or any other medications you are taking, including vitamins and herbal supplements.
 
Baclofen comes in the form of a tablet or as an intrathecal injection. For more baclofen drug information, talk to your pharmacist or healthcare provider.
