Baclofen dilemma

Baclofen dilemma
My prescription for Baclofen says take 1 or 2 tablets at bedtime. If I take 1 its not very effective at stopping muscle spasms. If I take 2 it reduces the spasms quite a bit but makes me very weak the next morning.
Does anyone else have similar problems? If so have you found an effective solution?
