Prescribed 10mg oral baclofen for "ms hug", experiencing nausea and vomiting. What can I do to alleviate it? Pepto, ginger, mint haven't helped.
Use different med: Suggest considering a switch to an alternative medication which does not cause your symptoms, but might work well for spasticity, and perhaps tizanidine would be of value. Ms hug usually refers to spinal cord inflammation, which should be treated with steroids or acthar, as could represent a relapse. Also, do not see specific ms med on your list.

40mg of Baclofen at one time . I know it's too much but helps . I have no issues when I take it . Will it cause problems?
Caution:: The maximum daily dose of Baclofen should not exceed 80mg/day. It's usually given 3-4 times a day. Suggesting 27 mg 3 times a day.
