Baclofen , Gaba-B antagonists anyone tried?
We have had some discussions on another thread of using Baclofen a Gaba-b antagonist for LPR Symptoms. I just recently got my GI doc to write a prescription for it so am about to try it and will share my experience.
Apparently this drug has an impact on the nervous system that can help to reduce the esophageal sphincter opening when it shouldn't, perhaps some other effects.
Anyone who has had some experience with this drug or other Gaba-b drugs please provide some input. How did it work for you , side effects etc..
On the other thread here a allergist has helped us to understand how it works for LPR and his experience with it. Not for everyone with GERD or reflux but for some of us where PPI's don't work it may be helpful. Typically those are LPR sufferers. Here is that other thread for those interested:
