Lioresal, originally known as Baclofen, is a drug used to treat spasticity and is also being currently researched as a potential treatment for alcoholism. It was originally developed in the 1960s to treat epilepsy, but was found to have minimal effect in that regard. Lioresal is also used as a muscle relaxant.
While Lioresal has many beneficial uses, it has some serious side effects as well, which should be considered by anyone considering taking this drug. The most serious side effects of Lioresal involve a variety of different kinds of neurological dysfunction. Lioresal has the potential to impair crucial activities such as muscle tone and balance.
Additionally, the drug has been known to exacerbate spasticity as well. In 2002, the FDA issued warnings about the drug because it caused spasticity in the spinal and cerebral realm. Furthermore, the drug has some addictive qualities and discontinuation can cause serious problems, including death.
In people fighting alcoholism, the drug can cause sleepiness and lack of coordination or attention in crucial situations. In effect, it worsens some of the effects of alcohol withdrawal.
