Baclofene

Were you looking for information about Baclofen? Baclofene is a common misspelling of baclofen.
 
A healthcare provider may prescribe baclofen (Lioresal®, Gablofen®) to help treat spasticity cause by certain brain or spinal cord damage. Specifically, the drug can treat spasticity caused by multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injury or disease, or cerebral palsy. Baclofen comes in the form of a tablet or as an intrathecal injection (which delivers the medication directly to the spinal cord via a pump). Your healthcare provider will determine your baclofen dosage based on several factors, such as how you respond to baclofen, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you are taking.
