As a muscle relaxant, baclofen (brand names Gablofen and Lioresal) eases the painful symptoms associated with epilepsy, a spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy, among other conditions. This antispastic agent reduces stiffness, spasms and pain, but soothing these symptoms isn’t the only way people use baclofen. Like methadone and naltrexone, baclofen has proven useful in reducing drug-motivated behaviors for people addicted to opiates or amphetamines. However, baclofen carries its own abuse potential, and it’s possible to misuse this drug designed to help heal addiction.
Ingested in large amounts or mixed with other substances like alcohol, baclofen can produce a pleasurable sensation similar to being drunk. People may take increasingly larger amounts of this drug to feel the same euphoria, which can lead to a baclofen use disorder.
