These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Baclofen [posted 1/7/99]
Question: I'm not quite sure if you are familiar to the drug baclofen, but my niece has been taking it and it occurred to us that she may be on it for the rest of her life. So, I am trying to get as much information as possible on it. Especially any long-term side affects. She has severe Cerebral Palsy. She also had strokes during birth. The baclofen has helped her stiffening greatly.

Answer: Long term side effects appear pretty minimal. However, you can obtain a good description of the drug in Goodman and Gilmans Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics (basic pharm text) and/or get a copy of the package insert from your pharmacist.
