    I have used baclofen which is the generic version. I think its a great drug for sleep, but not on its own. I use 25mg of baclofen every so often with my normal sleep meds and find it really increases the quality of my sleep. its said to be the poor mans version of xyrem, so if it can improve sleep, it can help with muscle pain etc. i havent taken it through the day for pain though but when taking it at night i dont get any pain just good sleep.

    cheers!!!

    lets us all know how u go on it.

    Baclofen is sort of like a benzo. benzo's effect gaba A receptors where baclofen effects gaba B receptors and help in muscle relaxation.
