Baclofen overdose: Although 80 mg per day is a commonly accepted maximum, dosing up to 200 mg per day has been used safely and effectively. Baclofen is a great drug, but is also extremely deadly. The highest dose of baclofen ever recorded, 2 grams in a suicide attempt, btw patient has recovered. For Baclofen intoxication supportive care including mechanical ventilation is required. See your PCP ASAP.

My doctor has diagnosed my baby with laryngomalacia because my baby is always congested. I get so nervous and constantly check if he's breathing. Is this diagnosis accurate?

Yes: Laryngomalacia is a common condition that most experienced pediatricians are comfortable diagnosing. It causes noisy breathing and resolves by 12-18 months of age. A definitive diagnosis can be made by an ENT specialist using a small scope to look down the child's windpipe. This requires anesthesia and is only recommended if your doctor isn't sure of the diagnosis, or if you need reassurance.
