    Lets pray for a great New Year!!!
    Really? That's very interesting. Thanks so much for your help and advice Mary. I will DEF talk to my urologist about the possibility, and see what he thinks. I will let him decide whether he thinks it is the way forward for me...I am about to start using amitriptyline so I think he will want to see how that goes for a while before starting me on other treatments too....I do now feel better informed about all my options. Your input had been invaluable.

    Hope you have a great 2011 also!

      Muscle Relaxer Baclofen Instead of Valium

      Hi Y'all,

      This is an interesting thread. It seems to be kind of an individual kind of thing regarding withdrawal from oral and vaginal, whether you get it or not.

      My compounding pharmacist also uses the muscle relaxer Baclofen in vaginal suppositories. It is NOT addictive, it is not a Benzo. He uses a comination of valium and baclofen together for some ladies. I do not know his experience using just baclofen to know if it worked but I would bet he has tried it with at least someone. You could call him and see and he could tell you the dose used. You can read my posts about where I go on the other thread.

      I take oral baclofen, it does help relax my pelvic muscles and helps my pain.

      Just a thought...

        Donna is right, please talk with you Dr about medications. We are not qualified to give you medical advice. One person's experience does not mean that you will have the same. We can only share our experiences. I would hate to think that someone chose not to try a treatment recommended by a medical professional based on someone else's opinion.

          I totally agree with sailaway grl. There are horror stories out there for every possible treatment option --- we need to be working with our physicians to make these choices.

          I will be closing this thread.

          Stay safe
