    baclofen refill itchiness

    Two of my lasts 4 refills have resulted in itchy face, eyes and chest. Has anyone else experience that?

    Itching with intrathecal baclofen is a less common reported side effect, but it can also indicate a developing allergy. Ironically, it also may be a symptom of insufficient drug being delivered. I would get back to your physician who manages your bump and let them know about these symptoms and discuss options.
