    In Europe they sometimes use baclofen for alcohol cessation at much higher doses than we would ever prescribe in the US.

    But as Smashms said the FDA max recommended dose is 80 a day

    I was on 60mg been reducing all meds got baclofen to 20mg and the brain fog has gone. Spasms are worse but bearable and I quite enjoy having muscles moving by themselves. Below 20mg and I twitch too much.

    My spasms we're so bad. It got to where I couldn't drive my legs would spams and get stuck in brake pedal and hit the accelerator. They would render my hand controls useless had a couple accidents. They would even spasm kick and I would leave bruises all over my poor wifes body. I eventually had a medtronic baclofen pump installed. Hell yeah fixed my spasms problems!

    Yes the 120 was maximum dose. I was on 120 mg baclofen, which my neurologist said, was maximum.

    I am on 80mg/day. Less than that, and I get wicked leg kicks. It does make me drowsy on occasion, but if I am active, there is no feeb - time.
