Baclosan® (generic names: Baclofen, Riclofen, Kemstro, Baclospa) is centrally acting central nervous system depressant and skeletal muscle relaxant. It’s a derivative of neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric acid or GABA. It functions by activating or agonizing the GABA receptors, specifically the GABA B receptors which helps to block the activity of the brain nerves which control the process of relaxation of skeletal muscles. This drug depresses the mono and the polysynaptic neurotransmissions by reducing the excitability of the afferent neurons as well as intervening neurons, thus reducing the skeletal muscle tone, but without affecting the neurotransmission of the nerve muscle synapses in any way at all.
It is prescribed by doctors to patients for the treatment of conditions like spastic movement disorders, especially in cases of injury to the spinal cord, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy etc. Use of this medicine helps in easing out the tormenting spasms as well as tonic clonic convulsions which are associated with several neurological diseases and marked by severe spastic muscle tone. It also helps to increase joint movements, which ensures better mobility and superior quality of life in the patient. By improving the mobility and flexibility of the joints, it also aids in conducting kinesitherapy, both active and passive, such as manual therapy, massage and exercise programs.
