i have been taking baclefon for 8 years and on a maximum dose . Drs have been talking about baclefon pump and also botox. not very comfortable about putting pump. Dr will analyze my muscle to see if botox will help.

Botox is so short term for the money . and if you have been on Bacoflen for 8yrs , its time for a change dont you think . Maybe Flexerill, zanaflex, Skelatin to name a few .

thnx razzle . I was on flexiril and zanaflex but found that baclefon helps the most. i will talk to dr abt skelaton. what i found helpful is baclefon and 20 minutes in standing machine and 20 minutes in bike. It sure flare up the burning sensation but help me with spasticity at least for a couple of hours and also to keep my legs untangled.

Regarding muscle relaxers, I use Baclofen every 2 to 3 hours. I tried Zanaflex but within a short period of time I had severe allergic reaction to it and had to go back to Baclofen. Even with Baclofen I seem to require the use of an over the counter antihistimine to control the urge to itch. I'm not sure if it is due to the Baclofen or just the way I am. I had a tendency to scratch my head and neck before I had SM. I haven't tried the other two muscle relaxers mentioned but will keep them in mind. I am in big pain trouble without Baclofen.

Be careful of the standing machine. Have your bone density checked. One of my friends had his hamstrings cut so he could stand. After the surgery they tested his bone density and it was to low. Now he has severe pain.
