About Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's

Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's belongs to the group of medicines called 'muscle relaxants' used to reduce and relieve the muscle spasms (excessive tension in the muscles) occurring in various illnesses. Muscle spasm is the sudden involuntary contractions of the muscle, which can be painful and uncomfortable. When the nerve impulses that control the muscle movements are damaged or interrupted, it could lead to muscle spasms.

Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's works by inhibiting the reflexes at the spinal level and helps in relieving pain and improves muscle movements. Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's works on the spinal cord and brain, thereby helps in maintaining muscle strength and relieves muscle spasms or stiffness. Thus Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's reduces muscle spasm in the conditions of multiple sclerosis (a disorder which affects the brain and spinal cord), cerebrovascular accidents (damage to the brain due to lack of blood supply), cerebral palsy (a disorder of movement, posture and muscle tone), spinal cord diseases and other nervous system disorders.

Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are suggested to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Do not discontinue Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's suddenly as it could lead to unpleasant side-effects such as rigidity, increased heart rate, changes in mood, fever, mental disorders, confusion, hallucinations, and fits (seizures). Consult your doctor before taking Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Baclosure-Xl 30mg Tablet 10's is not recommended for children below 4 years of age and those who weigh below 33kgs. Inform your doctor about all the current medicines you are taking and about your health condition to rule out any unpleasant side-effects.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Muscle spasm: It is the sudden involuntary contractions of the muscle, which can be painful and uncomfortable. When the nerve impulses that control the muscle movements are damaged or interrupted, it could lead to muscle spasms. Symptoms include muscle tightness, joint stiffness, unusual posture, difficulty in moving, pain in affected muscles, and joints. Fatigue (weakness), stress, extreme heat or cold, infection, and tight clothing can trigger muscle spasms. Muscle relaxants and exercise can treat muscle spasms.
