    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    I agree about the importance of this thread!!

    It is very heartening to see so many doctors getting on board with Baclofen as a treatment for alcoholism.

    While it wasn't my magic pill, I get thrilled every time I see a member here hit the switch and get their lives back.

    Baclofen has a much higher rate of success than anything else I have seen.

    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    Yes, it is strange though that at the same time an article appears in McLeans saying that most doctors don't prescribe because it is still off label. If most doctors know about its effects, most doctors would be legally and ethically bound to prescribe because the side effects do not outweigh the benefits for alcoholism, as opposed to, say, spasm for which it is prescribable.

    It just goes to show how sloppy journalism has become that they just throw comments like that in to make a bit of filler for their article. How irresponsible. It is like saying that if large doses of aspirin were found to cure cancer that most doctors would not use it because its side effects outweigh its benefits for tooth ache. A good investigative journalist would have checked with professional bodies and found that it is for the doctor to work with his client to decide whether a particular medicine is beneficial and safe to prescribe off label and if it is, then they would be negligent not to prescribe and if they just refused then they would be in breach of their professional duties to their client.

    If you went to a doctor and told him about Baclofen and he did his research, where would it say that the side effects for alcoholism are worse than alcoholism itself? Nowhere! Are most doctors really that stupid? The great thing is that the top people in alcoholism are now using Baclofen so a doctor who is not so specialized would have to defer to their greater experience and prescribe so it is a good idea if you have trouble getting your doctor to prescribe to have them contact someone like Jonathan Chick or the Toronto clinic to get advice and make them prescribe.

    Otter -- FWIW, I was once a journalist. This is one of the reasons I stopped being one.

    Plus, it drove me to drink. Literally. ;-)

    doctors

    It seems to me that general doctors would be uncomfortable prescribing it. They don't have enough experience with substance abuse.
    Considering so little is avaialable on label to treat it and the lack of financial incentives to get there, an addiction specialist should be considering these options for sure, in my opinion.
    Good luck to all of you trying to get access!

    There definitely is, Bjgh. I think it might be listed in this thread! There are several options, actually. I can't stick around, but the person you are looking for is Hopeful in Minnesota. I can't remember how she spelled her name. Pretty sure it's in here, though...

    I'll be back tomorrow or Saturday. If you don't find it, post here, okay? Hang in there!
