    Wow, Exciting! More Specific Directions?

    Hi. I've just been reading up on Baclofen, and I really, really want to try it. I'm even willing to make an appt. with my nurse practitioner, but she's not going to know squat about this and won't likely be happy to jump on board. Does anyone have more specific dosage recommendations, what does to start at, how quickly to move up. I have apnea and am a bit worried that it will get worse at some point, but I have pretty good ways of managing that (sleep sitting up).

    Any other ideas or recommendations or anything to help out a newbie who wants to try this. I tried the topomax/MyWayOut thing a couple years ago - made me so brain dead that I could barely function.

    Thanks so much. I will get the docs book, but it might be a while before I find time to read it. Alcohol has devastated my life (I'm 50), so I'm pretty excited to see that maybe there's still an answer out there for me!

    welcome topsy,

    a nurse practiitioner won't be able to write you a script--call Dr. Levin (do a search here) or find a doc. in your area. I totally recommend bac.!!

    Good luck,

    Wonka

    Thanks, Wonka! I'm excited about bac. It varies from state to state, but nurse practitioners can prescribe in my state (and they can be listed a PCP, which is kind of strange).

    Hi Tracy,

    Many folks require 3-5 times the "standard" safe dosage (80mg/day) to hit thier switch. It is one thing to find someone to prescibe baclofen, and another thing altogether to find someone willing to prescribe at this level. If you do not have access to 300mg/day or more, then it may not be worth the effort to even try. I had to go to 380mg/day to find my switch, and another recently hit the switch at 400mg/day.

    You can contact Levin as suggested above, or order online. To order online, google for River Pharmacy or All Day Chemist, or search the posts on this site for more sources.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks, wort. I called Levin and will talk more with him next week. I am looking into ordering online too. With two of us doing this, it's going to get pricey fast. Can't compare with what we spend on booze though! Dosage wise, we're going to start low and go slow.
