    It would be counter productive and make no sense to trial a device that's attempting to electrically excite nerves if the patient is taking drugs or medications to deaden them.

    I took baclofen for a decade. Decided one summer to taper off and quit it just to see. Spasms were way up during withdrawal but after a few weeks of being completely off it, my spasms were only a little worse than while taking the maximum dose of baclofen. Haven't taken any since.

    I never took the "full" dose which was 3 tablets a day. I only ever took 1 before bed. Did that for about a year, year and a half. Havent taken any at all for about 2 1/2 3 years now. The worst of my spasms are my feet bouncing around when my wheels hit a bump and my legs lock out when i transfer into my car.

    I'm about a year and a half out (C6 incomplete) and I don't take meds for that.
    I know it sounds strange but i kind of like them and think they are good for circulation.
