New to the forum...dx'd almost 7 yrs ago.
My spasticity (especially in my legs) got pretty bad over the winter with the cold we have in Canada. It was a brutal winter, My family doctor prescribed baclofen to help, and it did at first. I was taking 20 mg before bed, and when I woke up in the morning, then a half a tablet on a 4 hour schedule after that.
I'm now feeling twitchy and weak.It's come on in about the last month. So much so that I feel like I am losing ground on the tysabri I'm taking. I was able to type almost normally, now not so much. I feel like I'm going to tip over like I did when I was first dx'd, The spasticity is greater now, even with taking the baclofen and it's spring so I can't blame the cold!
Is there any alternative to baclofen that doesn't have this side effect?
Thank you for any advise you can give.
