Slow release Baclofen - Is it possible?

 

I found the video If Baclofen is so great why isn’t everyone using it already? in particular interesting, it really highlights how it's dr Ameisen's book was what started a patient demand for the drug, I think it shows how important sites like these are that patients be aware of baclofen, almost like a grass roots campaign to make it a main stream accepted treatment. I know for one without mywayout there is no way i would have found out about baclofen. There is no incentive to do studies on baclofen since there is not money making potential since its an old drug and thus no patent. forums like this one are important to spread the word to not limit out treatment options to what greedy pharmaceutical companies drugs they can patent to treat us instead of what works best.

She's a very articulate speaker, isn't she?

I really like her comparison of baclofen treatment & how difficult docs find to accept it with the discovery of H. pylori as the cause of indigestion - she refers to it in that video, & I read the story is on her website. Worth reading. No one believed that a bug could cause indigestion, it turned all their thinking upside down - & now no one disputes it!

She also makes the point yet again that, as you say, bac is a blow to Big Pharma because it's a cheap generic & they can't profit from it.
