Hi - first post, but not first visit. Mom (who has ALS) was taking 10mg Baclofen a.m. and 20mg p.m. for leg spasms. Was ok for approx 6 months. Spasms came back at night- really severe - Mom's now taking 200mg Quinine at night. Reduced Baclofen to 10mg at night. It's been approx 5 days and she's noticed more strength in her neck muscles (she wears neck brace most of the time). My question is to those who have bad night spasms and may have used either of these meds. Is anyone using both meds? Does anyone just use Quinine and remain spasm free? It'd be great for Mom to get even more strength back by quitting the Baclofen... Thanks! Really! This site has been so helpful!
