My sister, 61 years old, has scoliosis and severe osteoarthritis in her lower back. She endures debilitating pain.
Since she is an alcoholic, she is not a candidate for traditional pain killers or opioids.
1. Would Baclofen be a possible treatment for managing her pain?
2. Is it possible that Baclofen might have a secondary, off-label, benefit of being a possible treatment for the alcoholism?
