What are the long term effects from taking too much baclofen?
I have TN and the only way to reduce pain, when taken in combination with 
Tegretol [because of short half life of baclofen] is to increase dose of 
baclofen. I've doubled my dose from 70mg to 140mg. 1400mg of Tegretol 
does not work by itself, but increase in baclofen includes uncomfortable 
side effects, i.e., blurry vision, high mania, some degree of impotence. 
Blood results are not currently of concern. No appreciable liver 
malfunction, etc. that can be determined now, but I'm concerned with long 
term affects. Can anyone suggest what they might be? BUT, 140mg of 
baclofen does eliminate pain from TN.. Nothing else works.
