As far as I can tell I’m her only patient on Baclofen. However her info got up here thank you! if someone wants to make note that she is now educating her self about Baclofen and specificity high doses, and is willing to work with Honest & Motivated Drunks!!!

  9. Baclofen Doc Portland, OR?

    Hi @bsleezy! The closest provider I can see is in Seattle. You might have luck printing off the studies from the research section of this forum and taking it to an addiction specialist. A lot of us have talked our local doctors into prescribing just by arming ourselves with information. Good luck!

    That's a bummer, @MJM. About the negative feelings, and of course your wife's drinking. That's really tough. But 2 months at a stretch is not nothing. In my own experience, I was always real proud of any sober time when I was still in the cycle of drink, get sober for a minute, drink again, repeat. Now that I've been AF for a while, looking back things appear more complicated but still any day without a drink counts. Wish I could say the negative feelings, the irritability and anger, go away or at least fade, but I've just found more or different things to be angry and irritable about. Just kind of a low-grade burn seems to be my default approach to the world. Then again, given the way things are going that might be the rational response. Hope things even out for you. Great job with the exercise, though. Looks like we could use a March thread here soon. Have a good one, everybody.
  12. List of Online Pharmacies

    No they have changed the rules I guess for new accounts (so you wouldn't notice if you had one for a long time) since it only happened when I signed up start of this year and it wasn't the case before. I also sent them a support message asking if it is compulsory and they said yes. They said having a credit/debit card is not proof of age since some countries allow one as young as 14. I imagine they got pressure put on them by some other body. Well I don't know how to explain it but it just didn't feel altogether comfortable on the body when it wore off.

    Gold pharma just require you to fill out a form but it always goes through for me and you can pay by credit.They do Mylan which is what you get in the uk if your gp prescribed it. when you say tightness what do you mean?

    Well after exactly 2 months I drank again. Argued with my wife and embarrassed my kids. It is so bloody frustrating. This is a pattern I have repeated again and again over the last two years. I go for a maximum 2 months - with very few if any moments of cravings - then suddenly cravings return and I drink again. It is so hard when my wife drinks so much, but I need to somehow be strong and not drink. My kids need me, I need me - not the drunken me. Depression always seems to be the motivator (ha). I get so down that I start to think about drinking as the only escape from my negative feelings. The afternoon that I drank I even jumped on the exercise bike to try to ward off the cravings (or boost my mood) and that didn't work. I already do at least 3-4 sessions of 30min a week on the bike, maybe that's not enough. I know I have been pushing myself with work and have been tired as a result. I also saw the signs of depression coming back - irritable, angry, negative thoughts etc. I don't know what else to do. Join AA? Try another anti-depressant? Change my Bac doseage or when I take it, maybe take 25mg mid-afternoon? Something has to change, I can't keep this pattern going. I want to be sober, and above all, happy about about it (or at least not so unhappy that I drink again).

    I tried polpharma brand the other day and didn't like it Gave me some tightness in the colon though I have never tried bac before that time I am not sure if it was bac itself or the brand but since others had complained of polpharma brand on this thread I was thinking it could have been that so maybe worth a shot with another brand. Does alldaychemist require a phone call? they say on the site to enter a number and prefererable time to call. Aint nobody got time for that. I like thay you can buy smaller amounts which I don't see at other places. Goldpharma did; they had the biggest range I had seen from all these places but they now require ID verification which is a definite nono.
  16. Any luck with U.S. doctors and Baclofen?

    Thanks, Mom. I live in the South West, however, which has no listings.
  17. Any luck with U.S. doctors and Baclofen?

    Hi @Ann936 There are some US doctors listed here: http://www.theendofmyaddiction.org/forum/42-united-states/ My doc prescribes but only to 120 mugs. Good luck!
  18. Has anyone had any luck with doctors prescribing this in the U.S? I have an appointment with my G.P. but I doubt he will be game to prescribe for anxiety. I am scared he will make me see a psychiatrist, which I am not looking forward to, as that will lead to required visits with a therapist. Not that I MIND the therapist, but paying all the money for weekly visits is not something I want to do. I am thinking of just ordering online and treating myself...

    Ordered today from the U.S. Will see how it goes. Had to call and set them up as an online payee with my bank. Hopefully it gets here quickly...

    @Nicnak I am so pleased for you! wanting an occasional glass of wine is how normal people feel. Welcome back to the human race from the depths of alcoholism. I still have an occasional drink, but rarely more than one. Now titrating down, at 170 mg this week.

    Hi everyone well after saying I was done with baclofen after failing to reach indifference and constipation I have tried it again because without it I was drinking 1-2 bottles of wine a day. Ive reached almost indifference at 150mg a day.I say almost because I still have vague thoughts of alcohol but have not felt like I needed a drink since Saturday. Ive been like this before in a way that I’ve wanted a drink but couldn’t drink more than a glass but thought I had to go back to zero and start again because I’ve had true indifference and wanted that again,but I’m very happy with this state of mind now. still got major constipation and can only go with strong constipation relief but I will persevere.I think I have what is called anismus.

    Hi all, just a quick hello. I’m still sober at 150mg p/day, only have had cravings once since my last drink nearly 2 months ago. I am less prone to depression this time around - I think - because I am exercising. I’m not super organised or regimented about it, but if 3-4 days go by and I haven’t been on the exercise bike I really feel it. Another benefit of exercise is not just staving off depression but actually feeling that pit of the stomach excitement or well being occasionally. I started to knuckle down and get organised with work about 3 weeks ago and I am starting to really feel really tired from it. I don’t think I have worked as hard for a long time and I’m recognising now that I need to back off a bit. I’m trying to do too much too soon. Any way, this week I can stay at home mostly writing up the stuff I have been doing out on the road the last few weeks, so that will be easier on my worn out brain and body. I tried going for a jog this morning and it really emphasised how much my smoking is affecting my fitness. I am starting to think about giving up again. I’m noticing too just how much time I waste smoking, especially on those days where I have been flat-out. I popped a nicotine lozenge a few times to deal with the cravings rather than pull up on the side of the road to have a puff. I too have been wondering about Ne. I hope that she’s okay.

    I have not heard from @Ne1, sadly. She hasn't logged on in like 2 months. I sent her a text message last night, but she hasn't responded - not sure I have a current phone number for her, actually.
  25. Hi everyone, new member here. I am looking for a doctor in the Chicago area who can prescribe Baclofen for alcohol addiction. Can anyone recommend a doctor for this please? Thanks in advance!

    I am now starting to taper down from 200 mg. The caffeine problem postponed this for a while - constantly feeling jittery made tapering down difficult. Have started again last week, going down 10 mg a week - tomorrow down to 180 mg. I want to be lime @Mom2JTx3 & exist on my script from GP, which is only 60 mg at the moment. Might have a go at getting it put up again - I think max recommended dose for adults in UK is 100 mg. GP thinks they are prescribing for muscle spasm in the back. On a different topic - anyone heard from @Ne1 recently?

    Hello all. Hope we're doing well. Not much new here, just working and hanging with the girl. Went out to a couple nice dinners for Valentine's day, or week, or whatever. Actually quite a few sit-down dinners lately. Man, that's getting expensive. Pretty light week coming up, two of my three classes are pretty much on autopilot between now and spring break. So trying to use the extra time productively. We shall see how that goes It's awesome that you're down to just your prescription, @Mom2JTx3.
