How to get baclofen

Recommended Posts

Admin2

If you have a relationship with a doctor, particularly an addiction specialist, this is (hopefully) a relatively easy process. If you don't, then the best idea is to reach out to addiction specialists in your area to see if they prescribe medications for addiction treatment (MAT).  If not, don't waste your time. These doctors must be psychiatrists, other MDs, or psychiatric assistants. Therapists and counselors, etc., cannot prescribe medications. The best bet is always addiction specialists, but any psychiatrist is better than a General Practitioner who doesn't know anything about addiction or MATs. 

In either case take the following information with you and hopefully they will prescribe baclofen for you.

Here is the prescribing guide for baclofen for physicians:

Here is the study Suppression of Alcohol Dependence Using Baclofen: A 2-Year Observational Study of 100 Patients:
