Baclofen vs Flexeri
I have been taking Flexeril for years. It has worked Great for me. No side effects that I can recall!! I started today taking the Baclofen only because my insurance would no longer cover the Flexeril????
I have read alot of comments made people taking Baclofen and feel very good about taking it. I have Degenerative lumbar scolois. Thank you all for your comments
I started with Baclofen then started flexeril. I swear by baclofen as the BEST. I honestly can't say much about flex because I really haven't given it a chance but I hope it the Baclofen works as good for you as it did for me. Also, it curbed my desire for the opiate pain relievers. My doc seems to want me stuck on them lol she took away the baclofen and gave me a shit load of tramadol and flexeril. Could be blissful if only I were ignorant..
