Baclofen Tablet 10mg helps to reduce painful and chronic muscle spasm as it reduces muscle tone and unwanted muscle contractions. It is known as a skeletal muscle relaxant as it reduces pain and discomfort of spasms that are caused by conditions where there has been damage to the nerves that supply the muscles.

When you start this treatment, your doctor will give you a smaller dose and gradually increase it. This is to reduce side-effects like drowsiness.

Directions for taking Baclofen Tablet 10mg:

  • Before you start this treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside your pack. The leaflet will give you more information about baclofen and a full list of side-effects which you may experience from taking it.
  • When starting this treatment, your doctor will give you a small dose (usually half a tablet three times daily) and then gradually increase your dose every three days or so. This allows your doctor to make sure that you have the dose that helps your condition and avoids any unwanted symptoms.
  • Take the tablets exactly as your doctor tells you to. Your dose will be on the label of the pack to remind you.
  • When baclofen is prescribed for a child, it is likely that a liquid medicine will be supplied. Check the directions on the label carefully, as the dose will depend upon their body weight.
  • Take baclofen with a snack or just after eating a meal.
  • Try to take your doses at the same times of day each day, as this will help you to remember to take them. If you do forget to take a dose, skip the missed dose but remember to take your next dose when it is due. Do not take two doses together to make up for a forgotten dose.

Caution before taking Baclofen Tablet 10mg:

Some medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and sometimes a medicine may only be used if extra care is taken. For these reasons, before you start taking baclofen it is important that your doctor or pharmacist knows:

  • If you are pregnant, trying for a baby or breast-feeding.
  • If you have ever had a stomach ulcer.
  • If you have kidney problems, or an 'overactive' bladder.
  • If you have ever had a stroke, or if you have cerebrovascular disease (thickening of the blood vessels to your brain).
  • If you have epilepsy, Parkinson's disease or diabetes.
  • If you have any mental health problems.
  • If you have problems with your breathing.
  • If you are taking or using any other medicines. This includes any medicines you are taking which are available to buy without a prescription, such as herbal and complementary medicines.
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine.
