Interaction of Fenobac 10 Tablet

If baclofen is taken with drugs that act on the central nervous system, alcohol, or synthetic opioids, it may increase sedation. It also increases the risk of respiratory depression.

Combination therapy with baclofen and antihypertensive drugs may increase the drop in blood pressure; therefore, the dose of antihypertensive drugs should be adjusted accordingly.

Taking baclofen and tricyclic antidepressants at the same time may enhance the pharmacological effects of baclofen, resulting in significant hypotonia.

In patients with Parkinson’s disease treated with baclofen, levodopa, and carbidopa, there are several reports of confusion, hallucinations, headaches, nausea, and agitation.

Simultaneous use of MAO inhibitors and baclofen may lead to increased CNS inhibition. It is recommended to be cautious, and the dosage of one or two drugs should be adjusted accordingly.

Caution should be exercised when using baclofen and magnesium sulfate or other neuromuscular blockers because in theory there may be a synergistic effect.



Baclofen is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to any component of this product.

Careful monitoring of respiratory and cardiovascular function is essential, especially for patients with cardiopulmonary disease and respiratory muscle weakness.
