How to taper off baclofen

How would one taper off baclofen, just reduce it as much as you can stand?

Also would it be better to take vicodin to counter the effect then just reduce the vicodin after the baclofen withdrawl is done?

I was taking 40 mg a day for like 3 days (i took it before but it was like 40mg every 3 days or so for maybe a week and half), stopped, got sick as hell, and i started tapering it down i took like maybe 25-30 mg today and felt ok.

I took about 2.5 mg a little bit ago cause i was feelin crappy.

I think im addicted to vicodin at the same time lol, disc herniations are a beech.

So i was thinking of taking like 10 mg in the morning, 5 mid day and 10 at night for maybe 3-4 days then maybe 5-5-5 and then going from there if i can.

Thanks guys. I will never take that crap again btw

Re: How to taper off baclofen

How bad are baclofen withdrawals?

Here's Swims doctor's dosage for withdrawal from GBL and again from Phenibut.

4 x 10mg 4 times a day.

Reduce by one tablet a week.

Swims been on 20mg 4 times a day for a while, so thats at least half way there.

I know people on baclofen pumps can get underdose withdrawals but Baclofen is pretty good on tolerance so I wouldn't worry too much. Take as long as it needs. Reducing a little each week should be ok.

Post Quality Reviews:
Thanks for suggesting the tapering plan, plus the personal experience.
