    Medication for muscle spasms?

    Claire – the only suggestions I can make would be either to try supplementing magnesium or try a medication (I don’t know what you call it where you are) called Baclofen.

    Baclofen is used to lessen spasming in quadriplegics and people with MS, so I can only assume that it would help MD as well, but you would have to ask the doctor.

    Magnesium is a mineral which can be supplemented to stop leg spasms and twitches (eg restless leg syndrome and muscle cramps).

    Hope that helps!

    At the recent Neuromuscular Members Conference in
    Taunton several people gave very favourable mentions
    of Baclofen.

    Hello Claire – I take clonazepam three times a day in the form of drops, with a larger dose in the evening. This is used both as an anti-epileptic and muscle relaxant. As for Magnesium, yes I take it daily, in a good dose of 70%-80% dark chocolate – it tastes much nicer than pure magnesium, and raises the serotonin levels, (well I pretend it does) but should’nt be taken just before you go to bed because if its stimulant properties.
