What is Baclofen?
Baclofen is a muscle relaxant drug that is effective in reducing pain and muscle spasticity resulting from an array of physical conditions. Baclofen acts by working on the central nervous system.
Baclofen has been shown to be a moderately safe drug to take, but it does come with some risk of psychological addiction and physical dependence. Many people taking Baclofen experience both side effects while taking the drug as well as withdrawal when they stop. Baclofen comes in two forms: a pill form and an injectable form. According to MedicineNet, the typical dosage of baclofen begins as 5 milligrams given three times daily.
