    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    I talked to a man in Norman, Oklahoma who took himself off suboxone and wellbutrin with high-dose baclofen. He talked his doctor into prescribing up to OA's highest dosage (275 mg/day). I asked him to speak with his doctor to find out if he would take referrals. Waiting to hear. In the meantime, my D.O. will write up to 80 mg/day. I'm in Tulsa, Oklahoma. PM me if that would help.

    My GP has prescribed it, and needed very little prompting. However he is extensively aware of my problem, has been active on my defence, and I have had several blood tests before we started on Bachlofen.

    However I've only had one prescription a few days ago, but he was willing to prescript high dosage Bachlofen immediately. However since we're just starting out, I'm loath to put his contact details up online.

    He's in Dublin Ireland. I should point out that Irish GPs have alot of freedom when it comes to prescriptions, and you're not geographically tied to your GP.

    So ask your local Irish GP, and change GPs if you can!

    You can move around.

    Bleep,

    Don't forget Atlanta. Not sure if they do high dose but any dose and supplement with offshore is helpful.

    Longshot raises a good point, please think about that if you have trouble (amazing, but it happens) with your regular GP, or are reluctant to bring it up with him.

    There's no need to give out the personal details of the doctor - Just a location. People can then PM you for further details.

    Pony, I regretfully left your doc off the list, although perhaps I should put it in, just so they get bothered by calls?

    I talked to my doc today. He is willing to do the high dose bacfolen treatment, as long as the patient couples it with a "program", which I take to mean either a 12 step program or some type of psycho-therapy. He is in Austin, Texas. You can PM me for details.

    PBarE, you could consider SMART. It is not 12-step, but it is based on rational emotive behavior therapy based on Ellis's work. It's not at all invasive (no looking at the "roots" of anything). Would he consider MWO as a "program"?

    Anyway, sorry to hear that you have to jump hoops but kudos for winning the doc over.

    That is a great idea, Trace! I will give it a shot. Actually, there is a lot about the 12 step programs that I find attractive. And even when they are dysfunctional, they are entertaining.

    Humbly suggest that we keep cross-talk to a minimum and stick with the list of docs. but perhaps that's a reflection of my own angst???

    Baclofen for Alcoholism, Doctor in Arizona!

    :new:

    Ok, so as I was reading the Ameisen book a couple weeks ago and got so excited so I sent a website link to my Psychiatrist with all the info on Baclofen for Alcoholism. I asked that he read it so we could talk about it at my next appt which was today and he is ON BOARD and wrote me an Rx. I live in Southeastern Arizona. I am starting pretty low at 20mg per day, divided as 5mg/AM, 5mg/NOON, and 10mg at bedtime. I am cautiously optimistic and I'm thrilled to have found this site.
