Can you tell me if baclofen (liosreal) is safe to use as a sleeping medication ?

In brief: It's ok

It is a medicine chiefly used as a muscle relaxer for those with spastic muscle conditions.
Since drowsiness is one of its side effects, I can see how it might help with sleep if taken at night. But that is not its primary indication.
