In the last week i took Baclofen (50 mg a day).
In the first days i felt great, like my feelings is coming back to me. It faded after a few days.
I heard its good to take 2 days breaks every few days so i did it.
I woke up yesterday with nasty withdrawal symptoms

Fever
Vomitting
Hyperthermia
Confusion
Disorientation
Insomnia
Dizziness
Nausea
Anxiety
Tachycardia

I took more 2 pills of baclofen and now i m a little bit better. I wanna stop taking it. How do you think i should taper it off? Thank you!

I have always thought that all gabaergics are the same: benzodiazepines, baclofen, carbamazepine, pregabalin - they acute eliminate the symptoms of anhedonia, bad thought, anxiety, and then cause strong PAWS that cannot be cured. I have been suffering from carbamazepine PAWS for almost 2 years. I have similar experience with betel nut.
You feel similar to ,,neuroleptic"?

Did you use benzos before, or any GABAergic? Did you abuse alcohol in the past?

50 mg daily without anything to stop tolerance is a bad idea. Even with something to prevent tolerance, 2-3 days break per week is needed. Baclofen, when taken on its own, should be used only as a probing agent and not for more than 3 days.

Consider tapering off over a month. Cut 12.5 mg every week. If that's too fast for you, make it slower.

I took it with fasoracetam for the tolernce.
I v never use benzos and never had alcohol abuse.
I took it only for the anhedonia, emotional numbness.

It can be cured? To taper ir of with fasoracetam?

Surprised you developed dependence after only a few days. Are you sure it isn't just a rebound effect?

Maybe I'm not being helpful, but I've been taking 50mg baclofen for 3-4 months without taking anything else. Tbh no side effects, I tappered it down easily with 0 problems so I'm shocked at your reaction.

i cured it via lorazepam, lowdose, 2 times daily 1mg, every 10 hours, not longer than two weeks, baclofen itself is more evil than drinking alcohol over years, be carefull and dont take the fasoracetam, it umplevel stress you dont want !!! for sleep, the importeints part of recovery is, you can take a half zopiclone, before get into bed, if you use a full pill you may get double visions in morning...
