Baclophen

Were you looking for information about Baclofen? Baclophen is a common misspelling of baclofen.
 
Baclofen (Lioresal®, Gablofen®) is a type of spasticity medication used for treating conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injuries or disease, or cerebral palsy. Although it is not exactly clear how the medication works, it is thought to help inhibit certain nerve signals in the body. Although some people tolerate baclofen well, it is not suitable for everyone. Some of the common side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, and weakness. Prior to beginning treatment, talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
