Spasticity: Lioresal is a brand name for baclofen. This medication is used to reduce muscle spasticity, particularly after stroke or spinal cord injury. There is a commonly used oral form and a highly potent form that is administered directly into cerebrospinal fluid.

Lioresal (baclofen): is classified as a centrally acting skeletal muscle relaxant, it is commonly used in the management of paroxysmal neuralgias such as trigeminal neuralgia. Lioresal (baclofen) should never be discontinued suddenly after prolonged use because of the risk of developing anxiety, hallucinations and tachycardia.

Liorisal + Motival: Motival is a combination of a major tranquilizer and a tricyclic antidepressant. This combination alone can cause drowsiness. The muscle relaxant Liorisal will almost always cause drowsiness. I think you know where I'm heading here. If the same doctor did not prescribe both drugs, be sure each doctor is aware.and approves. Don't drive until you see how you are affected by the combo. NO ALCOHOL
