I used to take 80-100mg of it a day until I had the HiCy treatment. Now I am at 30mg if I need it. I also take 4-AP when I need it...usually when I am doing a lot of physical work.
All you newbie's take a suggestion from a guy who wishes to hell someone was out there like me 5 years ago...go to one of the places doing HiCy or the CCVI treatment. Don't wait to get rid of MS until it is too late.
PS...I have been told by numerous doctors a Baclofen pump is the LAST thing they want to use because once it's in most people experience a level of disability from the pump itself even though it is helping with spasticity.
That's terrific that you're being helped by the HiCy treatment. I (and others like me) will be encouraged by your progress, so please keep us up to date.
I'm not sure where my "newbie" moniker came from...unless it means being new to this web site and forum. I was Dxed in 1976!
True, ITB therapy "may" result in an excessive degree of muscle relaxation, depending on the titration of the medication. This is entirely adjustable. You take milligrams/day orally; my pump dispenses micro
grams/day. Also, it's worth noting that any difficulty "caused" by the pump is not permanent
disability; it's reversible to baseline with 24-48 hours from discontinuation.
Again, anyone who is interested owes it to themselves and their loved ones to do the research. Don't take our "opinions" as the last word
