Baclofen is for muscle spasm and neurontin is for nerve pain. You can take both together. My PM prescribes them for me to take at night so my nerve pain doesn't wake me up. Leaves me a bit foggy in the morning. I find the neurontin to be more effective. I prefer Valium as a muscle relaxer over Baclofen, but doctors are reluctant to prescribe it. I also take Norco to help regular pain
I try to take the minimum as well, but I get tired of hurting all of the time, so getting used to taking medication more often.
Best wishes to you. I hope you can have a few low pain days.
