    told him never ever let me sleep that long. iam getting my own place again as we sold the farm in march and i moved in with my son . it kinda scarces
    me as on weekends no one will be around.

    You are very lucky, as baclofen over-dose is much more likely to cause you to stop breathing than to over-sleep.

    You need to go back to the physician who placed your pump. Both the pump and your catheter need to be tested, and if necessary, replaced. Until then, I would recommend turning the pump off and going back on oral baclofen until this can be safely resolved for you.
