Then a fellow MSer told me that tonic water was relieveing cramps in a major way, so I started drinking a glass in the morning and another at night.
Magic. Leg stiffness & cramps greatly reduced, and I really notice if I miss a drink of tonic water.
I now only take 1x25mg per day, and that is usually if I am going out and want to make sure my legs don't stiffen up.

I drink a 300ml bottle of tonic water/day, and I am finding it significantly Better than Baclofen!
I have taken Baclofen for many years 4 x25 mg, so am very aware of the difference.
All my mineral levels are fine, so this may be a factor why it works well for me.
However, it doesn't hurt to give it a try. Just add it to your Baclofen regime at first, then miss one pill, and test the water...
