In brief: Possibly

Clonazepam is a possibility but is a controlled substance and is not prescribed unless you really have problems with he baclofen.
It causes dependence and is pretty hard to wean from.

In brief: Yes

Why you want to replace baclofen? It depend upon the indication and severity of spasticity.
Traditionally, two other choices are diazepam and dantrolene. Lots of my pts take Baclofen with snri.
