Relief from spasms!
The spasms and cramps I was experiencing from Arthritis in both hips were absolutely terrible. 1 hour after my first dose of Baclofen they were gone! Just short of a miracle. Works really, really well, unlike other muscle relaxers that do nothing. One dose lasts 24 hours.

I didn't really notice much difference when I started taking it, much like every other muscle relaxer. I've never found one that works.

Works well on spasms
When I first started taking I noticed some drowsiness but also a diuretic effect which had me getting up several times during the night, and has a drying effect (eyes, nose, mouth) if I don't stayoverly- hydrated. The drowsiness has diminished but the diuretic and dryness side effects continue, Very easy to take and has done wonders for my spasms.

Chronic Lyme Disease Patient
Taking only at bedtime to relieve my Lyme Disease neurological symptoms, severe nerve spasms on one side. 1st dose, Nerve pain continued until 4am, but for the first time in a months awoke pain free. Within 12 hours of my 1st dose, I experienced what I think is a harmless ocular migraine. These were my symptoms, squiggly flickering lights in my vision, the blurred vision on one side last 10 minutes.

Works as intended
It does a good job providing spasm relief. Has caused mild drowsiness and dizziness if I take it without eating well first. When I eat well first I am pleased that I don't deal with cognitive issues as this was my fear from past muscle relaxes.
