Baclofen
« on: October 30, 2013, 08:08:00 pm »
I think I asked this question a while back, but didn't get much input, so I'll try asking again.  :)

I take 10mg Baclofen at bedtime for lingering neck/spinal stiffness and tightness, following two neck surgeries.  Been on it off and on for the past 3-4 years.

Now I've been on 10mg continuously for about a year.

Do you think this will cause me issues later on down the road, with tapering from clonazepam?

I'm pretty sure it has to be tapered, but I don't want to try it right now since I'm tapering clonazepam, but at some point I'd like to get off of it.

Any input or advice would be appreciated. :)

Baclofen effects Gaba-b receptors. It probably wont effect your clonazepam withdrawals although a lot of people say that taking any kind of gabaergic drug is bad during benzo withdrawal and could be detrimental to healing. The fact is that nobody knows how it will effect your taper of clonazepam.
