I’ve been on baclofen 20 milligrams 3 times a day for transverse myelitis for almost 7 years how can I tell if it’s no longer effective please let me know if you have any answers thank you

Hi @timk1965, welcome to Connect.
Here is some information from Mayo on
Baclofen http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/baclofen-oral-route/proper-use/drg-20067995
Transverse myelitis http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/transverse-myelitis/basics/definition/con-20028884

I’m also tagging @kingrach78 and @ccsmith, as they may have some thoughts to share.

@timk1965 – is baclofen no longer controlling the symptoms it once did?


Hi Colleen this is Tim the baclofen is no longer effective my doctor yesterday put me on cortisone 20 milligrams twice a day for 3 weeks do you know any information on Cortisone and do you think that may help thank you very much


I made a mistake it’s not Cortisone and prednisone 20 milligram tablets twice a day


Prednisone not cortisone sorry about the confusion
