    Need to make contact with others using baclofen

    Hi there,

    I used to be active on My Way Out way back 6 or 7 years ago. I am back on baclofen for my drinking and have come across something very strange.

    Please if this forum is still active and people are contributing, I need to connect with you.

    I am a staunch believer in the abilities of baclofen yet had a very strange experience about a month ago. I had a migraine without the head pain and have not been able to return to my normal clear headed self. I am currently titrating back down with the guidance of my doctor to try to discount that baclofen was the cause. I need to know if anyone out there has had a similar experience or knows of this happening to others.

    I was on 210mg a day when this happened and had seen a huge reduction in my drinking as expected. I don't want to stop with the baclofen but have to to eliminate the possibility that what happened was caused by baclofen.

    Cheers Stevo.

    Hi Stevo, I am not a doctor, so take this with a grain of salt, but I had what I thought was every side effect from Baclofen as I titrated up. Migraines was not one of them. I would suggest staying the course and seeing if it resolves. I wish you the best.

    Re: Need to make contact with others using baclofen

    Hello @Stevo ,

    And welcome back. I'm not a doctor, but...

    People often experience something at the same time as they take a medication, and link the two erroneously. I don't want to make light of your situation (but am British, and so make light of every situation), but it's for this reason I love reading the reviews on drugs.com. Mostly they're pretty sober, but every fifth one is along the lines of, 'After two days on this blood pressure medication taken by millions for fifty years, I was paralysed on my left side. This is poison.'

    A 'migraine without a headache' does exist in the medical literature; but it's unclear what you mean. 'Silent' (painless) migraine exists, but it's associated typically with visual disturbances/aura. Do you have those?

    Finally, with regard to 'feeling shitty in the head'... we're all drunks who've been assaulting our brains with poison for years and years. So... just gotta take that into account.

    Ultimately, you're working with a doctor - and s/he'll be able to guide you.

    Good luck,

    George Smiley

    Hey Steveo,

    Having never had a migraine I am not sure of your symptoms or issues but there are loads of side effects with Baclofen. However if you HAVE been on Baclofen for a prolonged period of time, I doubt this is the reason for your issues.

    I would expect you have been on Baclofen for some time so this will be an odd situation. To suddenly get issues would suggest to me this has nothing to do with Baclofen. You may have covid, a cold or some other virus. A doctors blood test should sort this out.

    Regards,

    Bacman
