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?
