    What does Baclofen treat?

    Baclofen treats muscle spasms related to certain disorders such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury or disease. This comes under the class of muscle relaxants. It works by relaxing the muscles and this helps in relieving muscle stiffness and improves movements. This may be used in other treatments based on the decision of your physician.

    Take it immediately once you remember. In case, this time is closer to the next dosage, skip it and get back to the prescribed schedule. Never ever double the doses unless your doctor specifically instructs you so.

    Don’t waste any time and seek immediate medical attention. Overdose symptoms that you might face are vomiting, drowsiness, trouble breathing, fainting and seizures.
