I have been forgetting things since using Baclofen I had to start writing things down on a daily basis. I forgot to do something at work, but the last straw was I forgot which floor I parked the car on in New Orleans. My wife then googled this medicine and saw the possible side effects and told me to immediately go to the doctor. I don't understand why they don't tell you the risk before giving you this medicine. I'm going get something different because my pain is still here but I need my memory.
i am 40 year old male taking Baclofen for muscle pain, avodart for hair loss and Olmetic for moderate high blood pressure issues. Over the last two years my fingernails (thumb and index finger on both hands) and big toe nails have become brittle and are splitting and thumb nails are concave in shape and have horizontal crack marks appearing. I have tried Biotin from chemest but no improvement. It is not a fungal issue as I have used two courses of anti fungal treatments with no improvement.
I have been on several meds for years. The ones listed and a few others, Prednisone, Carbidopa-leva, Colcrys, Celebrex. I was started on Folic Acid and Sulfasalazine in Aug 2015 for the Rheumatoid factor discovered in a routine blood test. I've had the same doctors for years, General Practitioner, Neurologist, Rheumatologist and Pain Management giving random urine test once or twice a year for 7 years with no issues. I had urine test Jan 2016 at my PM Doctor app't, the following week the PM Doctor wanted to repeat the urine test. At my March app't he said the two urine test showed positive for something that wasn't suppose to be there, according to the lab report Morphine or Codeine. The only change in my medication regime is Folic Acid 1 mg and 2000 mg of Sulfasalazine (the patient drug info sheet states this med can effect certain test, no details). The issue here is the government crackdown on doctors prescribing pain medication, the problem urine test need explaining. PM Doctor sent me for a blood test, I'm hoping this will clear this up. The question I'm presenting is has anyone had an issue?
I want to know which is the best medication for sciatic pain. I was on Robaxin but now Workers Comp took it away and gave me Baclofen. Doesn't work as well for me and is giving me blurry vision. Is Baclofen even good for sciatic pain?
