sudden baclofen withdrawal ... help
My son C3/4 complete was admitted to hospital 3 days ago with a bowel obstruction. He was throwing up brown vile. The hospital put in a NG tube so he is having nothing by mouth.
He has been taking 80 mgs of Baclophen for 13 years. With the NG tube his meds have been
stopped. Yesterday he started severly hallucinating. The Dr. said they can not give him
baclophen and they are managing this with the drug virtec.
My question is how long will this withdrawal last and what else can I expect to have happen.
Im asking here because he is in a regulare ICU hospital unit, not a spinal cord unit and I dont think the Dr. is very familiar with spinal cord injury.
