    baclofen and sweats

    Hi again, my spouse just started baclofen for his spasms. He's been taking baclofen for two weeks and he's up to 30mg a day. Is this enough to cause 24/7 drenching sweats? He thinks it's a side effect of the med but he's had these sweats off and on for 2 years along with his intense spasms. Thanks in advance.

    Diaphoresis (sweating) is a common reaction to baclofen. Have you always had this symptoms while on the baclofen or only since it the dose was increased?
