Baclofen?

  • By solove0611

    Hey all I’m sorry to double post (I posted this in the medicine section too), but I was hoping there would be more ‘traffic’ here. Has anyone ever tried baclofen? What side effects did you have and how effective do you feel it was or is to your treatment? Also does anyone know if it causes the dreaded rebound effect?? Thank you so much for any advice and thanks for always being there friends!!

    Hi Shoard83,

    Thank you so much for your question. I am however, sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you.

    I tried baclofen brand name Lioresal, without much success. I now use tizanidine , brand name Zanaflex, which I only use when I know I can sleep as it knocks me out.

    I don’t believe there is a medication overuse headache, moh component to this medication. Have you seen our information on the more than 100 medications that can be used for migraine prevention? https://migraine.com/blog/migraine-management-essential-4-preventive-treatment/.
