10mg t.i.d. for 3 days
15mg t.i.d. for 3 days
20mg t.i.d. for 3 days

Use in pregnancy and lactation : Pregnancy Category-C. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Baclofen should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when baclofen is administered to a nursing woman.
