Wanted: baclofen prescribers across the world – can you help?

I’m getting plenty of emails from the website from people round the world asking if there are any experienced or at least willing prescribers in their country.

I’m keen to gather information from site visitors so more people can find a prescriber.
This type of information is well developed in France via one of the patient organisations so that anyone can find a baclofen prescriber nearby if their own GP is not willing.

I have some leads in Australia – good ones in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne, some tentative ones in Brisbane and Adelaide.
I’ll put details about my good leads in a future blog or just email me if you need the information now.

Really keen to find prescribers in New Zealand, the UK and the USA especially as I get lots of enquiries from these countries.

    Thank you for this website, This drug is truly remarkable in so many ways, as you have laid out here. Do you need any connections in Canada? I was prescribed baclofen, specifically in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Would it be helpful perhaps to ask those who have been prescribed this wonder drug, to list the name of the prescribing physician?

      Hi Em,
      Ultimately I would like to have a list of prescribers in various places around the world but it would be very unfair of me to simply publish the names of these doctors without their permission. So there would be a bit of a process to go through.
      Could you send me the name of your prescriber so I can give it to individuals who ask and who are reasonably close to Winnipeg? I think I have someone who asked about a baclofen prescriber in non-french speaking Canada a few months ago.

      Actually ultimately I would really like there to be so many baclofen prescribers that there was no need for any sort of list but that will take a while. In a future blog, I’ll be encouraging people treated with baclofen to tell their story for the benefit of others who are considering it so I hope you’ll contribute.

    I live in a regional area of Tasmania and my local GP arranged for me to access an online service with a psychiatrist specialising in addiction. He is Sydney based and prescribed me baclofen. So far we have had one consultation via web. I am due for another early January – I shall ask if he is willing for me to pass his name on to you – OK?

    My local GP was not confident that their knowledge of addiction was sufficient for my needs. I am very grateful to them and for the service I now have access to. Other options for support are very limited here.

    The resources on this site are wonderful. I am very grateful for the time and effort that has been put into this site and information. Thank you.

      Thanks David. Yes, I would be interested to know about the web based service so if your prescriber is happy to have his name passed on, that could be very useful for patients who have the same problem as you in finding a prescriber. Amanda

    My daughter was cured from Baclofen.I live in the United Srates . After reading Dr Amaisens book and trying everything else for 8 long years and on the verge of helplessness ,we decided this was our less hope. It took us 12 psychiatrists to finally find the one who would prescribe off label. She wrote a book , we can’t find a publisher.
    It not only cures alcoholism but we used it for binge eating-she described it like being a cocaine addict.It is a miracle pill and I kiss Dr Ameisen every day.
