I have Cerebral Palsy and have been using Diazpam as a muscle

Resolved Question:

I have Cerebral Palsy and have been using Diazpam as a muscle relaxant and anxiety
medication for a few years now. It seems to be wearing off and I need something new that will relieve tension in the muscles so I can function. Can you recommend anything new to me that I can talk to my doctor about? I need something just to be able to get around, feel relaxed and not so tight in the muscles.

Anthony Bray MD :

Hello!

Anthony Bray MD :

Baclofen might be a good option for you to try for muscle relaxant effect.

Anthony Bray MD :

You might discuss this with your doctor.

Anthony Bray MD :

This might be considered along with perhaps a decrease in dose(?) of the Valium but not discontinuation as you may still need this for anxiety...

Anthony Bray MD :

I hope this helps.
