I tried Baclofen - Not for me
One of the things my neuro had me try was Baclofen for my spasticity. I took one half pill the night before last (you're supposed to start real slow, and yesterday was awful... I was dizzy and cog-fogged all day, tired but keyed up, even a bit nauseous for a while. Needless to say I am no longer on Baclofen. The next thing I try is Fampyra (for mobility). I can expect some side effects with that, but most of those go away after a couple of days so its worth sticking with it for the two weeks of the trial to see if it will help. Tomorrow I go to get fitted with a leg brace. I'm still going to try the Walk-Aide some more, but it needs to be re-calibrated and, in any case, there are places where the Walk-Aide just doesn't help.
