 1  Back pain, dextroscoliosis Nightmares, night terrors, inability to fall asleep, drowsiness, feelings of hopelessness, depression I took Baclofen 1 time and I've never experienced so many nightmares back to back. My wife had woke. Me saying I was whimpering in my sleep. This was after having a nightmare of glass shards through my extremities, haunted house, gigantic snakes, falling through glass floors to my death, my children being violated, etc. the nightmare are horrible. My back felt great for about 4-6 hours but the feelings of fear and anxiety during sleep are disabling. I've nerv had that many nightmares so close together! Would not recommend. M 26 1 days

 1  muscle spasms in back Lethargic, insomnia, shakes, confusion, hallucinations I thought I was dying. Literally. My husband said it's the drug. I didn't even know who he was. I packed a bag fir the hospital. Told my son I was dying. He said no you're not. My husband threw out the pills. 48 hrs later I was ok. It should not be on the market. I went to my granddaughter's dance performance+ I remember nothing. Very dangerous drug! F 70 3 months

 3  Muscle spasms It helped with the muscle spasms long enough for me to get to sleep, but the effects didn't carry into the next day. It made me slightly manic, like I'd had way too much coffee, but not enough to be dangerous. I had a doctor tell me not to make major life decisions on this drug, and i see why. The worst of it though it's the vivid, terrifying nightmares where I felt like I was in real danger and woke up screaming. They don't wear off fast either - I couldn't find my phone and remember thinking I'd left it in my dream. I woke up and thought some dream-entity had replaced my sleeping partner. And of course, my partner doesn't sleep well when I wake up screaming. M 31 7 days

 1  Knee and muscle pain/strain Acid reflux, stiff joints and muscles especially neck and shoulders, sleepiness, upset stomach, heartburn A horrible drug that made my overall situation worse. Did nothing for the original pain/strain. Waste of money and time. Could have been on a better medication sooner. Had no idea all side effects were tied to this drug. I only took half of the prescribed daily dose and still had a terrible experience with it. F 57 7 days

 5  Anxiety Difficulty concentrating. Later in the evening drowsiness, burping. Sometime really chatty Improves my mood and reduces my anxiety. But I keep having to increase my dose. I stopped taking it twice to see how I was. I suggest coming off this drug really, really slowly. As others have said, it felt as bad, maybe worse than coming off valium. But worth it as it's helped my life F 47 1 years

 5  MS & Alcoholism I'm okay as I am desensitized from Horror movies so Baclofen nightmares are like watching a horror movie every night I sleep. Sometimes I wake up and still feel the dream is going on, however I snap out of it and realise. Wow..another creepy horror movie is over. It's a trip.. It's better than Campral by far.. 100 times better..Its a cure for me. I don't crave alcohol and I can always up the dosage of need be. I've also had MS for 17 years so this really is a cure for two serious diseases..legs feel loose and I'm walking well not restless leg syndrome anymore..i researched this extensively and a third benefit is my anxiety has dropped significantly as well..i feel chilled out..miracle! 43 2 months
